4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 A pale yellow/orange color, with a thick off-white head, which dissipated slowly. Smells sweetly of wheat & Lemon. Upon drinking it you know it’s a whitbier, wheaty taste with traces of lemon and coriander, though very light. Drinks very smooth. This is an incredible HEFE, one of the best.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Fluffy white head. Cloudy pale body. Slight banana aroma. Taste is the obvious banana taste with some malts. A little bit of spice to spice things up. Bready finish. Not too much taste, but overall it was an ok hefe... not watery at all like some of the style.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Queen Adelaide, Wandsworth, 5th Aug 2007. Standard wheat beer appearance - cloudy, carbonated light straw colour with a decent head. Aroma is fresh citrus and straw, but with a bit of a soapy note. Refreshing taste of citrus and wheat. Drinkable, medium weight - this is a decent summer beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice sweet, slightly spicy aroma - pours a beautiful but only slightly hazy dull gold with a thick white head and great lacing. Taste is unfortunately quite bland - like a lager, mostly, but with just a touch of breadiness. Creamy body with slightly low carb. No spicing or hops to speak of, a nearly offensively bland beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a bit murky greyish yellow. Big fluffy persistent white head. Yeasty/bready aroma with strong undertones of spice. Strongest flavor is bready/yeasty, with some sourness. Nice feel in the mouth. Refreshing, simple, nice.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, Hazy yellow poured into a Weizen glass, prominent head which lasts. Has a mildly fruity/yeasty aroma with a surprisingly bland/weak flavour, it is such a let down considering how handsomely this beer pours. Very very average. *Sidenote* on a positive note, it cost only €8 for 6 bottles.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2009 bottle. slightly cloudy yellow with a foamy head that hangs in there. aroma of malt, grain and light yeast. taste of dough, biscuit, and malt. the flavors are balanced nicely by sharp carbonation. its a nice tasting hefe (if lacking the fruity a bit) but the doughy flavor wore on me a bit. worth a sample but i wouldn’t make it a regular.
revisited. excellent beer. well rounded. all the flavors and balance you want in a hefe.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 500 ml bottle to drink by 1/2008. DId I get a bad bottle? This looks nice, all hazy orange/yellow with white foam that fades sehr schnell. It seems over-carbonated to me, with none of that creamy hefe texture. The flavor is only slightly fruity and spicy. No banana. Pretty lame, and I like the style.
Re-rate: first bottle must of been bad. A second bottle is still a little over-fizzy for my tastes, but more flavorful. Not a top-notch hefe, but pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale yellow color with a bit of haze but not nearly as much as expected for a hefe. Head is one finger thick and snow white. Aroma is minimal and slightly sweet and spicy but actually more bitter than anything else, which was also surprising. Taste is interesting because all of the traditional weissbier qualities are there such as sweet and spicy with a bit of bannana thrown in but everything is on a much more subdued note. A really weak showing in flavor side of the house, not nearly as flavorful as many hefes I’ve had before. A beer that is simply OK and I won’t buy again. Perhaps I got an old or bad bottle?
