Bottle. Murky gold with a medium white head. Smells a little like piss and cannabis. Or is that me? Banana is the defining character for me, cloves, citrus. Not bad but not great for the style.

Hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity with banana and citrus. Sweet, wheaty flavour with a full body. Decent enough, but nothing extraordinary.

A rather one dimensional wheat beer, lacking complexity and body, pleasant enough flavourwise but a lightweight example of the style.

Cloudy golden colour with a thin head. Aroma of sweet yeast, taste of watery yeast lacks body, quite smooth

From the Champagne-shaped bottle. A cloudy deep golden beer with a huge fluffy yellow-white head. Healthy aromas of wheat, caramel, bananas and cloves with a hint of citrus freshness. Similar flavours and nicely balanced with a refreshing sweetish finish. The best Bavarian style wheat beer brewed outside Germany that I have tasted up til now.

[330ml bottle at The Narrows, Limehouse, London] Pours a lovely copper gold with a moderate but dissipating off-white head. Cloudy orange when sediment swirled in - slightly darker than other wheat beers Ive tried. Orange, leamon and banana flavours are softened by hints of fudge. The flavour lingers pleasantly afterwards. Slightly too prickly carbonation is the only annoyance in what is otherwise a very enjoyable and surprisingly mellow wheat beer.

I like Meantimes beerz.Very legit Wheat beer.Went down smooth playing misereable Gilbert O Sullivan songs.Yeast & banana esters in the smell -with some booziness and hay.Tick every box for what one would wanna find in a Hefewizen.Cloves and banana esters having a party.Notes of vanilla are in there mildly.Spicy dryness is way refresing.Cool Wheat beer.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2009
From bottle. Very cool bottle. Spicy herb aroma with a little bit of honey. Cloudy orange colour. Poor head, not even a fizzy lace. The beer is very sweet, silky in texture. Not as sharp and refreshing as expected. Herbs and spice, maybe some coriander are present. Favours dont shine through the sweetness.

Prett good, had this on draft at the man of Kent, Rochester. Wheaty, citrusy and hoppy - I liked this as it wasnr too bubblegummy, unlike some of the other non-German Hefeweizen immitations. A good drop.

330ml bottle, Asda, Carlisle. Having let this stand until fully settled, I then decided to let some of the sediment into the glass. Pale orangey-brown, with a clean white head. Pleasant fresh aroma of cloves and citrus and refreshing on the palate. Nothing stunning, but enjoyable and nice to see an English witbier, from a good brewery.
