May 2012 - really nothing special about this. Underwhelming and nowhere near the quality of the German stuff. gunnar (9690) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle from myBrewerytap.Pours murky dark brown with a small white head. Strong aroma of banana and cloves. Taste is moderate sweet banana,soft carbonated, slightly spicy at the short lived end. Watery mouthfeel.

Bottle (330ml from Vino Wines, Edinburgh):Theydon_Bois (20600) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
A spicy aroma upfront, there is some cloves and orange along with some citrus. There is also a definite wheat beer smell with some yeast and sweet malts thrown in too.
Darkish, cloudy amber colour with a thin, two millimetre tall head that is bubbly but disappears after about forty seconds.
Sweet malts, some spicy hops and wheat along with a helping of cloves, light caramel and even lighter banana. Seems to be a more malty style hefeweizen with the usual citrus and some lemon in there too but not a lot.
Sweet and surprisingly spicy with a nice citrus tang. Carbonation is medium to high and there is a touch of bitterness right at the end.
A darker, spicier version of your tradition hefeweizen but a still a nice one. Quite sweet and malty without really exciting.
Tap at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh - 08/12/12.
Hazed dirty mid amber with a thin off white head that retains well.
Nose is bitter and sour, unlike most Hefes I’ve had, also a touch dungy, light toffee and some fruit tones.
Taste follows, sour and tarte, wheat tones, caramel, fruit.
Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, sour finish.
Average - rare to get a keg beer that attains the classic ’W’ formation !
Unusual Hefe ! johndoughty (5538) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy and flat. Some spicenrss and a medium body. Not a bad example of this style but not I would go out my way to try again.

330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Muddy brown colour, not much head, a bit flat. Sour yeasty fruit aroma. Resin grain flavour. A bit bland and watery. Not really a typical hefe. zimbo (970) - SCOTLAND - DEC 9, 2012
Very sour & tart. Cloudy milky yellow to the eye. Al.most lambic-like but not in a good way. zacgillbanks (5500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A dark amber hazy beer with caramel and slight banana flavours followed by a sweet fruity finish. Rune (13494) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2012
330ml bottle, 5% abv, at The Queens Head, St Pancras. Dissipating white top head, unclear, apricot coloured body. Ripe banana to the nose, lightly spiced. Wheat and ripe fruits in flavour offset by a modest impact of yeasty fruitiness. Bittersweet ending. Above par for a British weizen (London, 26.11.2012). RichTheVillan (8213) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle Cotteridge Wines; pours really dark for a weizen, a dark hazy brown, spice and yeast aroma, clove, banana taste. OK
