Draught @ Recovery: This one pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. No lacing. Lighter lemon and wheat aroma. Also, a lighter lemon and wheat taste. OK, but nothing more.

Clear golden color with a thick thin head with short retention.
Different aroma for a Hefeweizen. Notes of apricot, oxidized English earthy hops, caramels, spices and bread. Not sure how fresh this is once US brewers are generally lousy in respecting the customer with freshness dates and it is hard to trust the importer (this has 4 months to expiration). Anyway this is sure not young.
Flavor of oxidized oranges, caramels, wheat, English hops, mild bubblegum and spicy yeast. Dry aftertaste with a perceived bitterness. It fells bitter than 18 IBUs.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
This is sure a different take on a Hefeweizen or just not fresh. More barley malt, caramels and more hops, less yeast, cloves and banana than traditional style. Something quite didn’t match here.
