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.

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.

At the West Brew Pub, Glasgow. Advertised as the Amber Hefe, but it couldn’t have been due to the colour. Tom confirmed with the guy behind the bar, that it was the regular Weizen. It’s a hazy pale gold, with thin white head. Some banana, little bit thin in mouth, malt/cereal isn’t great. Some lemon. Really just a bit light in the flavours.

Hefeweizen on draught@The Blackfriars, Glasgow. Orangey yellow colour, cloudy, very small head. Aroma of coriander and banana, mostly. Flavours emphasize spices like coriander and clove, but banana is always there as well. Well-carbonated, medium body. A well-made hefeweizen.

TBone (11888) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2006
Tap@brew pub, "West Hefeweizen". Hazy bright yellow-orange, small creamy white head. Very light dark fruity, malty nose. Crisp, wheaty, more on bitter lemon side than banana sweetness. Medium-bodied, roasted banana flavors pop up in the finish.

Veyr nice in flavour, the aroma is spicy, but after a while it starts to be a little annoying, and the foam disappears.

This stuff is increadibly easy to drink. Aroma is clove with quite a bit of wheat, citrus type fruits, which seems strange? Taste is very well balanced, citrus fruits and a little banana mixing with some serious wheaty action. A dangerous beer but a great one!
