look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A - Gold, Yellow, Orange, white head and then no head. It appears to have very little carbonation.

S - Banana, clove, sweet grains

T- Wheat, banana, clove. Not as sweet as it smells.

M- Watery and then the little bit of carbonation that is in my beer kind of zaps the tip of the tongue.

O - This is a good beer to drink after you've already had a few beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

355ml bottle bought from GapWines, Belfast

Poured a hazy orange yellow colour... White head poured quite foamy then faded quickly to very thin layer....quite a lot of big carbonation bubbles... some light patchy lacing...

Aroma - Nice spicy fruitiness (apples, pears, light orange), salty notes, some yeastiness, light coriander just coming through, grassy, hay, light vanilla notes...

Taste - Nice lemon and spicy apple fruitiness, light orange peel, decent wheatiness, floral, barely any malts, light creamy vanilla sweetness, coriander is more pronounced than in the aroma...

Feel - Very smooth and creamy... Light / medium body. Fairly drinkable and refreshing - would be good on a hot summer day...

Overall - A decent enough witbier... Nothing groundbreaking but well worth a try...

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - For a beer 5+ months old I expected some sediment floaties. Head is just a mild lace ring atop a hazy bright yellow.

S - Banana's, clove, touch of fruity yeasts. Everything I expect in the style.

T - Not very spicy which is pretty nice since it can sometimes be overwhelming. Has more of a 'over ripe' banana thing going on. Supporting yeast is mild and fruity with little to no hops. Not bad.

M - Light to medium. Is actually fairly carbonated for its age.

Overall not a bad summer beer sampled in the fall. I could see myself drinking a six pack of this if I was a bigger fan of the style.

Straw colored and a bit hazy. No head whatsoever but lots of carbonation.
The smell is bananas and lemon which is exactly like it tastes as well. Missing the clove and has a bit too much lemon.
In spite of the heavy carbonation it has a creamy feel.
Overall a decent Hefe, for the price it is a very good deal.

Good looking medium gold, cloudy gold color. Make sure you shake the bottle, before you pour all of the beer, so you can get all the yeast out of the bottle. The white bubbly head dissipates fast, minimal lacing.
Smell is of wheat, yeast, banana and orange.
Taste is banana and fruit in the front, tart and yeast being the middle, and the finish has clove and more tart.
Medium bodied beer, very refreshing and drinkable. Good job.

This beer poured out as a yellowish color with a white head on top. The head settles into a light film over top of the beer. The lacing is scattered. The smell of the beer is on the stronger side, not as soft smelling as some wheat beers. The aroma smelled a bit like citrusy fruits. The taste of the beer is a slightly citrus like flavor too. The mouthfeel was light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Overall I wasn't too thrilled about this beer. I wouldn't seek it out again.
