Onesimus (60) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Pours a hazy amber with small white head that quickly dissipated Aromas of yeast, hints grass and citrus. Mouthfeel is lively yet smooth; upfront is citrus (my wife says its lime) with slight bitter follow through. Its got the German yeast with a clean crisp finish of a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden orange in colour with a slight white head, wheat nose with some citrus. Creamy in the mouth, smooth and wheaty. Nice just a touch watery on the finish.

Christos (5432) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2016
(Bristol Beer Factory Bristol Hefe) Bottle 500ml at home, served into a big hefeweizen glass, ABV 4.8% Orange coloured body, very hazy, with two fingers of white, frothy head on top, good retention. Aroma has citrus and wheat, grassy hops, yeast. Taste also of citrus and wheat, some orange too, yeast, not much clove or banana as I expected, some plastic off-flavours. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Decent but nothing special.

malushky (129) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
500 ml bottle from Wanstead Tap. Pours cloudy orange with lasting white head. No lacing. Classic sour hefeweizen aroma, mostly bananas but with a delicate hint of something chemical like shampoo. Nice sour taste, bananas and ripe fruit. No bitterness at all. Very high carbonation, a bit too high I think, refreshing. Decent hefeweizen in overall.

LazyPyro (913) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a very cloudy pale orange colour with a large frothy white head diminishing slowly. Huge amount of sediment in the bottle - swirling this around led to the extremely murky appearance (it was just hazy before).
Aroma of wheat, lemon, banana, and some mild spicing. Flavour is quite citrusy - lemon and grapefruit are stronger than the banana making it more bitter than I was expecting, there is some sweetness too though, also wheat, yeast, mild spicing. Overall: for a non-German wheat beer this was actually pretty decent, but theyre still much better at this style than we are - I liked it but still prefer actual German ones.
