Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A hefe-weizen with exotic top notes to the aromas. Predominantly banana with floral edges. On the palate the fruit notes continue with some caramel coming through on the rich elegant finish. Retains a good mousse throughout.

Poured pale golden colour, cloudy as you would expect from a Wheat beer. Reasonable head which lasted well. Aroma as you would expect from a German style weiss beer - banana's cloves, fruity and light. Taste was reasonable for a UK Wheat style beer (in the German style) slightly drier than some of the German wheat beers, and with less depth and body, but I still enjoyed this and would certainly have it again.

Tasted at the Cardiff Zero Degrees venue.

Served on draught into a Zero Degrees pint glass. Reviewed from notes taken less than a week ago.

A: One finger head of nice soft cream, good thickness, and favourable retention. Nontransparent hazy copper colour.

Sm: Orange peel citrus ester hops, cream, banana, and wheat. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Banana, orange peel, and other buried esters I don't have the palate to identify. Wheat and barley foundation is well suited to the hops. The cream is limited to the open. It's well built but off-balance. I wish it was more complex.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but overly thick and lumpy. Doesn't suit the taste.

Dr: The flavour is muted but the price is fair by Welsh standards (2.20 pound), and it's easy to drink. I wish the flavours had more fullness and depth.
