From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with a small and almost gone white head. Fruity and bubblegum aroma. Towards plastic. Smooth wheaty. Dry and slight malty with a light caramel note. Lasting mild fruity note into the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft as West Hefeweizen at 5.2% ABV. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with very strong notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet again with very strong notes of citrus, but also with light notes of banana and wheat, leading to a dry wheaty finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden cloudy ale with a mostly lasting white cover. Rather sour wheatiness hits up the nose with soft banana esters. The sourness appears less strong in mouth, perhaps slightly lactic, but so does everything else and the result feels simplistic and wheat-focused.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the brewpub.
Cloudy pale yellow colour, big head. Phenolos in aroma, with low esters. Light-medium bodied. Rich estery/fruity in flavour. Not very big in flavour profile, still a decent hefeweizen.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Blackfriars, Glasgow, as "West End Hefeweizen", according to my notes. Cloudy pale golden colour. Typical hefeweizen aroma of cloves, but with some strange sidenotes of rotting vegetables. Citrussy flavour, notes of cloves, thin mouthfeel. Not a very successful hefeweizen in my book.
