500ml bottle. Pours very cloudy (must be a different batch to other reviews) copper. Little head. Lovely aroma of tropical fruit and a little grain. Tropical fruit flavours carry through strongly. The label rightly points out flavours of banana with some spice. Fresh and vibrant. Very nice indeed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Queen Adelaide Northampton 30/08/13. The programme notes make no mention of Belgian yeast; it has the German name for wheat in the title and tastes like a German hefeweizen but hey ho. Cloudy orange with a whitish head. A nice body for a hefe. Banana and clove notes for sure. Lemony. Tasty. A crossover? Who knows the score?

Bottle. Claimed it was a cloudy wheat beer but it wasn’t-what went wrong?
Slightly wheaty with some spiciness. Quite pleasant but not what I was expecting.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled from Reyhills, Jesmond. Immensely fresh tasting and enjoyable. Significant banana and cloves in the aroma. Very clean taste with notes of lemon, however a small handful of yeasty esters crept in to the aftertaste. Described as cloudy on the label, however after pouring the entire bottle in to my glass, it was as clear as a bell. Nevertheless , I would certainly have this again, hopefully cask conditioned.
