Served cool from 500ml brown bottle bought from Aldi for £1.29 into weizen glass.

L) Nice cloudy light orange colour, very cloudy, dense white head. Looks like a great weisse.

S) Cloves only, none of the banana / sweetness that you can often get in weizens.

T) A bit watery and a bit bitter to be a truly good weizen, although the usual banana / clove ester flavours are there.

F) Less carbonation than a typical weisse. The bitterness really detracts from an enjoyable refreshing drink.

O) A sub-par weizen, it is the bitterness that kills it. A bit watery and flat too. Can't recommend this one I'm afraid.

500ml can

Appearance: muddy yellow colour with a nice head and a creamy bubbly head. Interesting.

Smell: spicy banana pudding and sweet grainy notes.

Taste: felt like a light fizzy banana drink mixed with some spicy cinnamon feel and a wheaty finale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied for a hefeweizen, not watery.

Overall: I like it, but expected a more fruitier punch. Anyway, its a good choice for summer nights when you want to escape the skunk paradise I live in.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with an impressively characteristic German head; nice retention and lacing action

Smell: Banana bread, clove and coriander tones

Taste: Banana bread, clove and coriander, right up front, with a touch of vanilla building; grainy, wheat tones add a bit of a tart character in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body; somewhat creamy but rather flabby for the style

Overall: Nice flavors but not in the top echelon with the more famous German hefes; the mouthfeel just isn't there, either
