Amber coppery pour with minimal head, smell is more grape than the advertised grapefruit. Stale citrus grows on you but the palette is not as fresh as I would like it. Overall pleasant combination of citrus and hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mighty_meadow (300) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2015
500ml bottle from Tesco. Room temperature (cool kitchen) poured into tulip glass. Nice, light coloured ale. Very mellow and sweet at the beginning. Hard to pinpoint the flavours. Turns a bit earthy, wood, some light fruits but MOSTLY an earthy, dare I say organic taste. Finishes off with a hoppiness but not too bitter. Almost a sugar coated citrus. Nice.

Bottle from tesco. The main thing about this is I can taste the wheat. If I wanted to taste the wheat id have a wheat beer. Otherwise I enjoyed it.
