Sub-par wheat beer. Aroma and appearance fine, hazy yellow with spice and banana, but the finish is far too bitter. One to avoid.

minutemat (6133) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2017
330ml can @ AMF Bowling, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy golden yellow, medium white head. Aroma has some lightly spicy citrus. Taste is smooth with subtle weiss yeast, lightly sweet, soft spice. Fairly easy-going for a hefe, but given as I expected nothing but lager here I have no complaints

Love wheat beer and glad to have a local Cork one that’s some what widely available, it’s hard enough to find in cans, never seen in bottles and I’ve only had the pleasure of having it on tap once in Cork City. It was good on tap but preferred it in the can

Cunningham (8459) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2015
Decent mild and nice hefe weisse. Quite session able and easy to drink.
Hazy yellow golden color with a fine white head. Wheat, some banana, yeast and mild clove. Ok balanced. Tad sweet. Ok body and a fine carbonation.
[On tap at Norseman 1696 in Dublin, Ireland]

The_Osprey (9372) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
330ml from Supervalu Newry, drank in Crossmaglen watching Eurovision. Bottled March 2015 at 4.7%. Hazy orange, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is resin, bubblegum, glue, musty wheat and straw. A bit chemically and pungent. Body is medium, slightly foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is hay, resin, soft ester, dry and wheaty. Average at best.

JStax (7228) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Draft pour. The beer is a hazy gold with a big white head of foam. Very strong retention. The beer has notes of sweet fruits and dough. They claim toffee notes, but i cant pick up on them. Mild sweetness in the taste and medium carbonation.

RichardGretton (4838) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly yeasty with dryness and mild citrus. The flavour has lengthy dryness and a mild yeasty and citrus'ness. Overall an average German style wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (11075) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours hazy orange, no head. Light sweet aromas. Yate brings the expected banana and light spice. Bit dull though, to be honest.

Bought at The Carry Out in Fermoy, €2.30 each for 330ml. Nice tasting but a little light compared to some other wheat beers. A lovely citrus and banana flavour comes through. Would buy again but very hard to find.

flying_pig (1666) - SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2015
330ml bottle from Reilly’s, Lisnaskea (£1.79):

Quite a disappointing hefeweizen if I’m honest, this one was too light and thin with an fairly poor appearance as well. Thankfully the taste wasn’t a bad one with the banana and cloves flavours seeming pleasant enough but there’s plenty of much better wheat beers out there to go for over this one.
