A - Exaclty like a hefe Weizen cloudy and decent head though the latter was not long lasting.

S - Served in a JD Wetherspoons in the UK, freezing cold! Could still get the citrus and wheaty aroma.

T - Citrus fruits and sweetness, as expected from the style but not memorable.

M - Very high level of carbonation for me.

D - Couple would be OK but would start looking elsewhere after that.

Pretty much an OK Hefe Weizen there are a lot better around though.

Widely available in Tesco Stores in UK, and claims on the label say it was a Gold Medal Winner in the Wheat Beer Class in London at the World Beer Cup 2004 (whatever that is!) Pours pale yellow and slightly cloudy, with tight crisp head, though the head quickly dissipated. Typical wheat beer aroma, though drier than some, and thinner. This is reflected in the taste, fairly crisp and light textured, but no depth of flavour or character as in the best Hefe Weiss beers. Refreshing and pleasant, but hardly outstanding, especially when some good imported German Hefe Weiss bottled beers can be bought here for similar price. Would not go out of my way to have it again, but its not a bad beer.

Poured into a Kranziskamer Weissbier glass, it looks the part, cloudy, a pale gold colour with a large white head, which didn't last as long as I thought it should have.

Slight vanilla aroma, but nothing as strong as other examples of this style.

Tart and freash, but not a true sharp sparkling bite to it.

Mouthfeel is weaker than the style should have, not unpleasant, but not strong enough to make you remember this beer above others and buy every time.

I would drink it again, but will not be rushing out and ordering a crate of it!

a- unfortunately poured into a imperial pint glass rather than a hefe weissbier glass. 3 finger solid head that it consistent throughout the pint, good brussels lace. Body is a pale hazy blonde.

S- Some faint banana notes, with some wholewheat, biscuity notes, not much hops to speak of.

T- once again a very grainy, digestive biscuit, popcorn flavour is very apparent. not so much banana or fruit apparent.

M - To me, slightly greasy on the tongue like Erdinger. I dont get that clean, refreshing crisp feel that i want from a hefe.

D- More flavoursome that Erdinger but mouthfeel lets it down somewhat. Also not sure if this biscuity taste is common for the style. However very interesting and well worth the try.

500ml bottle

Pourd with a cloudy lemony yellow body, big fat fuzzy head, good retention

Smell lots of of spice, clove especially, some smooth malt in the background

Taste, thick firey clovey spice, some other eastern spices, slightly fizzy

A tasty and refreshing wheat, little bland though
