chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Cask (handpump) at GBBF, day 2 in August 2007. Attractive bronze/amber colour. Strong malt character with lots of fruit and some sweet notes. Not without tangy hops either. Fairly full bodied. Quite well done I thought. Didn’t twig the wheat in this.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle from Beers Of Europe, King’s Lynn
Golden color, with persistent perlage and generous head. Light aroma of Brett, probably not intended. Dry mouthfeel, again with some astringency and sourness; quite strong bitterness; the infection is mild and the result is drinkable; still, it’s flawed.

SaintMatty (5564) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2009
Cask (Guide Dog, Southampton) - Amber in colour. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit and a faint hint of aniseed. Malty and fruity taste which is nicely balanced.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2011 500ml bottle from Middle Farm, drunk at home, 22nd Oct 2011. Slightly cloudy amber with a big white, very firm head that leaves a lot of lacing. I’m torn on the nose - has some spiciness but also some soapiness. Biscuity malt taste, medium palate.

Original rate: 6/3/6/3/12
Cask at the Eastbourne Beer Festival, 11th Oct 2008. Clear amber. Weak malt aroma and a similar taste. The added wheat is evident and makes it feel quite heavy bodied. Feel stronger than 4.2%.

harrisoni (14218) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2008

Ungstrup (29954) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2007. A hazy amber beer with a thick off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of honey as well as a light flowery hop note. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of flowery hops and honey, leading to a dry hoppy finish.
