Poured from bottle into Hefeweizen glass, with lunch at Lady Killigrew
A - Slightly clouded, beautiful billowing, snow white cap. Carbonation was steady and relentless.
S - Clove, slight ripe banana elements, Grassy notes all balanced quite well.
T - Biscuit, delicate hop note, wonderful yeasty notes.
F - On this hot day the fell was exquisite. light and delicate.
O - A very nice offering, I have passed up several times, but not again.
Cheers

Poured from bottle marked best before 2015/09 into Weizen glass

Aroma is there but not at all strong. I was left wanting more. Taste is spot on for the style, requisite banana and clove with a crisp finish.

Overall a solid beer. Wishing I had bought more.

This is a fantastic German Hefeweizen. Right up there with my other favorites- Franziskaner, Weinstephaner and Ayinger. A pleasure to drink..

Prost!!

500ml bottle in a glass. Orange, amber in color with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Smells like banana. Very smooth taste, reminiscent of a Hoegaarden, but more full bodied with a few fruit notes thrown in. Highly recommended.

Has that classic banana clove coriander aroma.Soft amber haze color.The color for some reason just doesn’t have the same appeal as others of the style. A two inch foamy head. Refreshing banana and citrus taste. Has a mild creamy but zesty mouth feel.
