Hefeweizen. This refreshing Bavarian style wheat beer is a real Bad Seed. It was one of the first beers to break the Reinheitsgebot, the strict German purity laws. Rules about beer are silly, and we love the delicious taste of rebellion. 5.1% abv Ingredients: Malt Wheat, Pilsner Hops Perle

BeardedAvenger (547) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle at home. Bought at Hogs Back Brewery. Pungent citrus, banana and spice aroma. Light gold and hazy. Bright white head - initially super frothy, before ebbing away. Sweet and sour, in fact more of the latter. Real citrus impact. Overpowers the banana and cloves referenced on the (actual small cardboard) label. Light bodied. Watery but also some oilyness to it. Flawed but still enjoy enjoyable.

Bottle, nose has banana peel and spice plus a hint of horseradish. Slightly thin body is more Pale Ale than Hefe, initially sweet, hints of orange.

ladnewton (1879) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle at home on 5th June 2016. Pours hazy gold with virtually no head or lacing. Rich zingy lemon aroma. Sharp yeasts and citrus in-mouth, leaving a remotely citric, grassy finish with rear-mouth bitterness and earthy pungency. Light body and mouthfeel.

If youre going to put Hefeweizen on the label, you should put hefeweizen in the bottle. Something cloudy with a frothy head that smells and tastes of banana, cloves and bubblegum: the beer I poured out of this 330ml bottle was bright clear gold, with no head. and no aroma to speak of. Strange dry cardboard dipped in Kia Ora flavour with a hint of paracetamol. So utterly perverse, I began to like it, but whats going on here?

Bottle shared with Sarah at home. Pours clear light yellow / straw coloured pour with a thin lasting white head. Poured in some of the yeast. Aroma is doughy wheaty malts, little zesty and fresh, rubeer, little clove phenol. Fresh and light straw on the nose. Flavour is crisp, clean light malts, wheat, carbonic acid bite. Palate is light refreshing, bit thin, high carbonation. Ok hefe. Nowt special.

[York Beer Festival, 2014] - Bad Seed Brewery Hefeweizen, 5.1%, hefetrb hellorange, krftiger, luftiger Schaum. Leicht suerlich zitronig im Aroma, dazu Hefe und etwas Banane. Kaum wssrig. Im Antrunk deutlich suerlich, mit Zitrone, dazu eine etwas herbe Kruternote, minimal Banane, aber ohne deren Se. Zur Mitte immerhin etwas Se, so etwas wie Banane, nebst Krutern. Im Abgang sehr milde, auer einer leichten Hefe- und einer schwachen Zitronennote kaum noch etwas vorhanden. Praktisch kein Nachhall. Entspricht in etwas einem deutschen Weizen, aber es fehlt die Tiefe im Abgang.
