"In the style of a Bavarian wheat beer, our Hefeweizen is an authentic blend of wheat and barley malt, hopped carefully and left naturally unfiltered with a clean aroma of banana and clove and a satisfying zing on the palette, topped with crisp, white foam." (Brewery notes) ***

Colour: Hazy yellow, small (!) off-white head. ***
Nose: Mild lemon, clove, yeast. ***
Texture: Medium body, watery, moderate carbonation. ***
Taste: Banana, mild citrus, some spices. Not a lot but yeast and banana in the middle, yeast in the finish. Hardly any aftertaste. ***

Impressions: Characteristic but not especially memorable German style hefeweisse. A difficult style to create something really unique in, admittedly. This is refreshing, mildly fruity, sessionable.

Keg at West Brewery. Hazy yellow body with a thick white head that holds well. Excellent lacing. Aroma of grain, yeast, banana and lime. Flavour of grain, coriander, orange, fig rolls and green banana. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Pretty tasty, but lacking a little in peppery bite.

Lightly hazed pale golden, moderate off white covering that stays for the show.
Nose is bread dough, nana, yeast esters, bitter orange smacks.
Taste comprises tangy citrics, yeasty notes, light vanilla, spice, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok for the style.
