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.

Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAY 27, 2009
Tap @ Peckham’s Beer Festival. Hazy golden colour, big white head. Nose of banana, citrus, yeast and wheat. Flavour is yeasty and wheaty and spicy. Nice original hefeweizen!

cgarvieuk (24793) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2009 On tap at Cloisters Edinburgh as hefeweizen ... very hazy amber orange ... light fruity yeasty banana ester nose ... sweet banana esters ... little orange ... very typical wheat even if its VERY plesent.

rbesg07, on tap at the brewpub. slightly murky yellow, minimal head - almost always a bad sign in a hefeweizen. popcorn aroma, hints of raw sugar, pretty poor hefeweizen

yespr (45869) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2008
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with a small and almost gone white head. Fruity and bubblegum aroma. Towards plastic. Smooth wheaty. Dry and slight malty with a light caramel note. Lasting mild fruity note into the finish.

Ungstrup (37894) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2008
Draft as West Hefeweizen at 5.2% ABV. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with very strong notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet again with very strong notes of citrus, but also with light notes of banana and wheat, leading to a dry wheaty finish.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2007
Golden cloudy ale with a mostly lasting white cover. Rather sour wheatiness hits up the nose with soft banana esters. The sourness appears less strong in mouth, perhaps slightly lactic, but so does everything else and the result feels simplistic and wheat-focused.

rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2007
On draught at the brewpub. Cloudy pale yellow colour, big head. Phenolos in aroma, with low esters. Light-medium bodied. Rich estery/fruity in flavour. Not very big in flavour profile, still a decent hefeweizen.

RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Tap, Blackfriars, Glasgow, RBESG 07. Cloudy straw gold, big white head. Nose is cat piss, some grassy hop. Mouth is grassy hoppy wheatness, some earwax and banana. Touch of citrus. Finishes quite dry, watery, bananay, chalky.

omhper (25251) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
Draught at the brewpub and at Blackfriars, Glasgow. Cloudy yellow. Evident banana aroma. with a twist of lemon. Medium sweet with a tad thin mouthfeel, but a very authentic yeast induced clove/banana flavour. Mustardy finish.
