Bottle, 330ml. As I was browsing the shelves of Utobeer I spied a lonely British wheat beer. I somewhat disinterestedly spun the bottle around to read the label, expecting another Wit clone. I was however excited to find it described as a Bavarian wheat beer. Ooh, Weissbier, my favourite. So I rushed it home and this is what I found... A cloudy copper colour with a short-lived fizzy head. Aroma of orange and clove. Flavour has wheat, more orange,a little banana and some nice hop notes. It is however oddly sweet and has a mouthfeel approaching syrupy - rather unexpected. Fairly high carbonation. Not quite sure what this is - the bottle says itís a Bavarian-style wheat (so a Hefe), Ratebeer says a Wit, Iíd say in terms of taste itís somewhere between the two. I find it both too sweet and too fizzy for my liking, so I wonít be buying this again, but itís otherwise a fairly nice brew.

A lovely wheat beer from Whitstable Brewery. It has lovely flavours of banana and nutmeg spice

McTapps (4143) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle bought in Faversham and shared with MichaelBruch. Very light yellow in colour. Aroma of strong yeast, taste at first of banana and yeast, than of citrus fruits and in the end there is a huge sourness. Guess this beer really is special, but I donít like it.

MichaelAwesome (4142) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in like a typican Belgian witbier. Smells a bit of banana and citrus. Aroma is definitely citrus. Tastes strange sour - nearly like a Berliner Weisse. This beer special but just not good or superb.

(draught keg @ The Continental Hotel , Whitsable) . This is more a rendition of a Hefeweizen than a Witbier as listed in the database . Ive got in my notes ígood take on a hefí ,its no damn witbier.
I spent the day in this trendy but somewhat soulless seaside town on an unseasonaly hot October afternoon the other day... This is pretty slick , tick all the boxes =banana esters ,which have a rich custard like quality. Notes of clove are there ploding along . A refreshing somewhat dry ,crisp tart acidity cutting the richness is nice . A pretty decent wheat in the Germanic way.

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear, light gold with a medium, white head. Grainy malts and light, sweet citrus in the nose. Fairly sweet flavor, more grainy malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes crisp with some fruit notes and lingering, malty sweetness. Not that good overall.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle. Orange and cloudy with a small head. No carbonation and could easily pass off as a Bavarian wheat. Still didnít like it much though.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2010
[330ml bottle, Whitstable Oyster Fishery Restaurant] Right from the off a down the lines wheat beer - massively carbonated, with a furiously dispersing head. Counted down two inches of frothing to nothing in twenty seconds, which is quite something. A hazy orange, golden pale colour, the staple wheat beer aromas of banana, citrus and coriander are evident. The taste is bitter at first, with a sweet wheaty aftertaste and a touch of alcohol Ė almost spoiled by the burstingly fizzy mouthfeel, reminiscent of a sparkling wine. But itís pretty good Weiss all considered. [21072010]

Cask (Southampton Beer Festival 2010) - Hazy golden in colour. Banana and slightly metallic element feature in the aroma. The taste is refreshing with notes of banana and lemon.
