Blind-tasted except for the beer's name and brewery/country, zero reviews below read (yet!)...
L- Mid amber, clear, pours with a small patch of white foam.
S- It has a spicy aspect to it....
T- ...which also carries over into the taste. It also has ester (fruit) notes that I associate strongly with Belgian wheat beers.
F- CO2 in the mouth is huge, unusually so; striking as in the glass (my regular/trusted one) the CO2 it is quite uninspiring. Hops/malts balance well for a balanced feel.
O- Very nice indeed, lovely balance, understated elegance. Easily sessionable for the enthusuastic. Makes a lovely summer beer.
Review/scoring all done, now the reveal, I get to read the lables to see what I missed! Augustiner-Brau are one of my fav German breweries, their Hell is a joy to behold. They are ultra-trad so no surprises in the ingredients etc. This is also really drinkable and well done. Sadly their beers are very niche to find in the UK, at least, stocked in a walk-in shop. You should have some more luck with more specialist mail-order firms, otherwise that long weekend in Bavaria is looking an even better idea...
500ml bottle BB: 08/2021 £2.75 Bought from TremblingMadness, York/UK as part of a large pick-your own consignment to London.

Bottle at Las Buenas Pulgas, served in a wheat beer glass.
Clear golden colour, big head that lasts until the end. Creamy dense lacing.
Aroma of banana, peaches, oranges, some cloves
Medium body creamy texture, lively carbonation. Fruity finish.
Taste is similar to the aroma.
Good wheat one, putting more accent other fruity side than on the spicy one.

The beer felt very welcoming as I drank it, like meeting an old friend. No surprises, just a warm comfortable encounter.

Bottle,

Pours great looking reddish gold. Big head

Initial aroma big on he banana, this dissipates to a more clovey and peppery aroma. Good.

Taste is a bit peppery, nice malt, fairly thin as most of these are with big carb. Touch of lactic juicyness and dryish finish. No hop really to speak of but it's not really relevant for this beer.

Very good hefeweizen

Pours a slightly hazy orange-ish with medium head that did not leave lacing. Nose is a bit mild compare to some, but has light sweet banana and certain!y some of that pepper that others have mentioned. Taste is similar...spicy. Overall, a beer I'd never turn down, but not at the level of Weihenstephaner.

Orange amber with a creamy head, head towers at first, then dissipates with lots of stickiness. Typical weizen aromas, flavor has right amount of banana/bubblegum. This is a beautiful beer to look at, and taste is alright, but not the best.
