Gravity @ exchange leicester. Golden filtered wit. Aroma is bubblegum. Tastes banana/bubblegum with slight clove/ginger tang. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenalia (3) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2013 does not count
Clear amber colour with a small white head. Good aroma of ripe banana and cloves. Initial citrussy flavour gives way to a peppery aftertaste. An interesting and engaging beer, it’s a great interpretation of a Kristalweizen.

mr_h (5949) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Cask by handpump at The Auctioneers, Glasgow - clear golden, thin off-white head, aroma of wheat and cloves, sweet smooth wheat malt mix, lingering non hop spicy aftertaste

bhensonb (15760) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Cask at The Devonshire Arms in London. Poured in a dimple mug. Copper color with an off-white smear. Spicy aroma. Flavor is very light caramel with something like ginger spice. Might be clove. Might have some citrus. Very pleasant. Finishes almost neutral bitter/sweet wise. Not a typical wit but very nice.

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours mostly clear gold with a slight, creamy white cap. Lots of dough, yeast and spices in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with plenty of bready malts, ripe mashed bananas, faint straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, very faintly syrupy, with further doughy malts and bananas. Simple but acceptable.

[Cask at the Belle Vue, High Wycombe] Pale amber with a moderate white head and a nice frothy mouthfeel. Banana, clove and yeast, backed up with a decent richness from the Adnams malt. I’m not normally a big fan of wheat beers, but enjoyed this despite the sweetness. A decent attempt at a Kristalweizen - I definitely think it should be classified as that rather than a "mere" wheat ale. Nice to have something different to your run of the mill UK beers.

berkshirejohn (6655) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2013
Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Clear amber with loose white head; floury aroma; soft floral taste with a grainy wheat-beer-like body; the finish is dry with some light babana and some citrus. Pleasant and refreshing.

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - MAY 12, 2013
Cask @ Haymarket, Edinburgh [070513]
Amber, clear, thin white head
Aroma of soft cloves, soft wheat cereal, bit aromatic, light fruits
Taste as aroma, pale malts, soft fruits, the aromatic clovey flavour is quite subtle which I like
Palate - Thinnish body, fairly oily. Finish as main flavour, soft linger
Overall - Competent if unremarkable hefe

Theydon_Bois (20636) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Cask at the Swan, Hammersmith during yet another rain break at Queens, 15/06/13. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is banana, caramel, sugars, trip orange. Taste comprises summer fruit sundae, banana, wheat, light spice. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dryish finish. Ok for what it is.

The Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Summer Beer Fest. Hazy amber beer, residual white head. Palate is smooth and low carbonation and slightly viscous. Sweetish orange with mellow bubblegum ester. Trace of lemon. Finishes smooth. Nice flavour but the palate is stodgy.
