Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, BB date unknown, served chilled in Tripel Karmeliet’s stemmed tulip-shaped sniffer. Notes: the beer label calls this beer an "American Hopped Weizen".

A: pours a murky, dim amber colour, coming with a light off-white foamy head and fairly quiet carbonation.
S: nice hop aroma of peaches, citrus and flowery notes combine seamlessly with the less pronounced but equally pleasant banana-ish, apple-ish and green mango-ish esters. Given a good swirl, a sharper tinge of spicy esters comes to the surface, complementing the otherwise mainly fruity and hoppy theme. Malts are relatively mild, compared with the hops and fruit esters, but still provide enough weight in the background.
T: quietly effervescent and fairly… neutral in taste with a belated leather-ish note, then the spicy esters and a wave of rough-textured hop bitterness develop fast to dominate the palate, leaving a dry and fairly chewy aftertaste in the end.
M&O: the mouthfeel remains refreshing due to the mild effervescence, the body is generally medium and not thin, while the flavour profile is somewhat influenced by the supposedly hungry yeasts which almost consumed all possible sugar and leave very little malty weight and flavour on the palate, which is rendered even more obvious when the spicy esters and hop bitterness both come in full strength. All in all, this is a somewhat unbalanced take on the hybrid concept of a hoppy & bitter weizen, but one definitely the brewery can improve.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2014, so it's a bit out of date. Here's hoping it's still in good nick. Purchased a while back from Trembling Madness in York. The label describes it as a German-style weizen that is late-hopped with US varieties for extra fruitiness.

A: Poured into a cervoise. Bottle conditioned and exceptionally lively. A hazy golden-amber hue with plentiful floating sediment and intense carbonation. Produces a massive head of creamy white foam with superb retention; this slowly reduces to a thick surface layer. Good chunky lacing.

S: Aroma of fruity hop notes and yeast esters, with hints of subtle citrus, mild white grape, grass/hay, earthiness, white pepper, spice, faint clove, light wheat and vague stewed leaves. The hop notes have an almost perfumed quality that is quite pleasant. Nicely balanced.

T: Tastes of yeast esters and fruity hops with a dry finish. Notes of citrus, mild white grape, grass/hay, earthiness, spice, faint clove, subtle wheat, grain and stewed leaves. Well-attenuated, followed by a subdued bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and good body. Hop oils tickle the tongue. Pretty astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of earthy yeast, stewed leaves, fruity hops notes and mild grain.

O: An interesting stab at style fusion. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are yeasty and lightly hoppy, underpinned by a subdued wheat bill. Body is alright. While the aroma hops are nice, the hefeweizen character feels underdeveloped and lacking in complexity (particularly from the yeast). That said, this is very drinkable and goes down nicely. Worth sampling if you come across it.

Bottle. Clear golden with huge white, semi-densed head. Really good head retention. Good lacing. Good hop aroma - citrus, some bananas in the background, also quite good floral notes noticable. The taste is medium bitter, unfortunately the hops (herbal, grassy) take over rest and you can fell too much bitterness. Light body, thin texture, high carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter.

From 10/05/15 notes. Cask at Bow Bar in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Pours a murky bright dark yellow color with no head or carbonation...looks like pineapple juice, very nice. Lots of brett, tropical fruits, and citra hops...nose is awesome. Sour nose. Medium body and low carbonation, super smooth.

Overall a really good hefeweizen with brett....loved it.
