Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton 08/11/ A hefeweizenly hazy yellow coloured beer with a thin white head and lots of lace. Quite authentic bubblegum and clove notes. Good flavours but the body is a bit thin. A pretty decent effort.

Cask Half Pint – JDW Fest Autumn 2012 - Cloudy Orangey Gold in colour. Malty; wheaty malts. Fruity; orange citrus, banana. Spicy; clove. Hops; slight hops. Sweetish malty with slight sour fruity edge. Pretty good. Easy drinking. (2012-11-10)

SilkTork (5854) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Oct/Nov 2012. Brighton, JDW. Band aid flavours big time, over-riding all else. Some watery citric fruit emerges. Some dirty water. Not very tasty, but drinkable.

Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2013
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours cloudy gold with a fine, white foam head. Good hefeweizen nose, plenty of dough and yeast. Medium sweet flavor with more good dough, yeast, mild fruits. Good balance. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dries out slightly in the finish; a nice British touch on the hefe style. Nice beer overall. Stays pretty true to the style and does so with some success.

The_Osprey (9140) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 Nov 2012 draught in peckham. Decent wheat beer (for a British one), slight spice. Quite nice and certainly drinkable.

Finn (8149) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Liberty Bounds, Tower Hill 3 Nov 12. JDW festivaløl. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. Nesten ikke skum. Svak fruktaroma. Smaken sitrus. Søt. Litt tørr bitterhet etter hvert.

ManVsBeer (10946) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
True hefeweizen aroma and taste. The texture is flat unlike the carbonated versions that dominate this style.

anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2012
Cask @ William Morris, JDW, Hammersmith W6. Pours a slightly hazy pale amber color with a small white head. Has a fruity wheat malty spicy banana aroma. Fruity wheat malty spicy banana flavor. Has a sweetish wheat malty banana finish.

Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
Festival ale, half pint at JDWs Liberty Bounds. Apricot coloured body with a solid wheat haze. Smell of ripe banana. Sweet ripe banana in flavour, too. Mid-sweet, dry fruity end. Rather thin bodied. Drinkable, however, way too sweet (London, 03.11.2012).

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - NOV 26, 2012
Cask @ JDW Elgin, 251112
Golden amber, very slight haze, dense thin white head, some lacing
Aroma - soft cloves, light banana, soft cereals, spicy hops
Taste - Wheat, soft yeast, soft pale fruity malts, touch of floral fruity esters, gentle flavoured beer, a bit too subtle but there’s some complexity
Palate - soft carb, medium body, bit creamy texture. Finish - soft cereals, bit dry, cereal malts, fairly rapid finish
Overall - This gets better with the drinking - better than most attempts at Hefeweizen by UK brewers I’ve tried
