COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg; Regular.
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.

harrisoni (13848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2007
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.

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.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
Keg, Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Cloudy tan. The aroma is sweetish, with banana notes. Candy banana in the front, getting fizzier and just slightly drier as it goes. An ok hefeweizen, probably a bit too sweet for me.
