Cask; Seasonal - Spring & Summer.
Another relative rarity in the real ale world ~ a clear wheat beer. This is a brilliantly astringent beer as a true wheat beer should be and in pulls off a real "double whammie" having a powerful continental bitterness as well.

Cask@the tap and tanner, walsall. Golden beer with medium head and good lacing. Aroma of pale malts and citrus. Taste is citrus, bread, some wheat and bitter hops. Decent.

imdownthepub (10647) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Gold with white head. This was quite a thin beer on the palate, slightly watery with a light perfumed note, bitterness, dryish. It didn’t really come over as a wheat beer but in retrospect there were a few signs. Just ok.

niquillis (1194) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
On cask at Wheatsheaf (JDW), Cheadle. Pours amber with white head. Wheat beer apparently, they should be fruity with a wheat kick. This is astringent and hard work. A face puller.

jmgreenuk (4973) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is weak malt, leading to a medium bitter, grassy, hoppy flavour with some smooth malt on the palate. The bitterness quickly disappears. A refreshing ale, but Beowulf can do much better.

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
500ml Brown bottle conditioned UK brewed wheat beer poured into a Franziskaner Weissbier glass on 13 Apr 2012. The beer has a slight haze to its otherwise pale golden body. The head was thin and white in colour, getting thinner with every sip. Citrus hop aroma and taste: not a lot else really. Refreshing but somewhat lacking in depth and deep flavours.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2010
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of elderflower and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, elderflowers, and malt, leading to a dry finish.
