In the style of a Bavarian wheat beer, our Hefeweizen is an authentic blend of wheat and barley malt, hopped carefully and left naturally unfiltered with a clean aroma of banana and clove and a satisfying zing on the palette, topped with crisp, white foam.

Half pint, keg at the brewpub. Cloudy, golden-orange body. Firm white head reduced to a patchy surface. Aroma of wheat and spicy fruits. Taste of banana, clove and wheat offset by a welcome citrus tartness. Soft carbonated. Refreshing. Well made weizen (Glasgow, 13.04.2012).

AshtonMcCobb (3413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2011
UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Re-rate from tap @ Bruadar in Glasgow. Slightly better marks for palate and nose this time though not getting to German standards. Previous rating - 23/08/2011 5+3+6+3+12=2.9 Draught @ Bert’s Bar. Pours a cloudy golden with not much head. The nose has a light lemon tang. The taste has tangy banana and pineapple. The palate is actually thin bodied and textured and very clean. This is ok, but it doesn’t have much of what I love about Hefeweisen. The appearance is underwhelming when Hefe is usually one of the most excellent appearances that can be found in beer and the nose is very light and there’s no creamy rich body. Will have to re-taste again in case it wa a bad pint of it but not excited about it this time.

Keg at the Euston Tap, London. Pours cloudy gold with a medium, white head. Yeasty and malty nose. Mild sweet flavor, some sugars and light bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Some dry yeast in the finish. Not bad.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Keg at The Guildford Arms. A cloudy, golden straw colour with a decent white head. Banana, clove and wheat aroma. Flavours of banana, clove and wheat again with a peppery finish. Quite smooth with a little CO2 prickle. Lemony linger. Not bad although tough to drink a full pint of this! Not really for me.
