2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured 25cl. Cloudy yellow/orange with a thin white head and low carbonation. Aroma of sour citrus, similar in flavour: sour with notes of lemon and wheat. Quite watery but certainly refreshing. Thin palate, a little oily? A average wheat, I found it too weak and watery to be good, could have been more flavoursome.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25 cl. bottle. Straw, hazy with a moderate and quickly disappearing head. The aroma has notes of coriander, citrus and wheat, just like the flavour, that has light sweetness. It’s refreshing and light, a nice thirst quencher, that might have a bit more depth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy white/yellow with a nice frothy white head. Smells of coriander, cloves, bananas, and licorice with some minor citrussy elements creeping in as it warms. Taste is a nicely balanced coriander/spicey, malty combo with a strong spicey citrus finish. Definitely am enjoyable experience.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 750ml Bottle. I took this bottle to a party at the weekend. Very cloudy, small lose head, not much lacing. Not a strong flavour - It’s slightly watery, but with some lemon cirtus flavours. You can taste the wheat, and some slight sweet spice. Light bodied, nice cold, but not exceptional.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of yeast, citrus, coriander ... Hazy, bubbly lemon yellow with a white head that reduced quickly. Starts with coriander, followed by anise, then orange, ending with a bit of spice/herb. Very refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A large & fluffy head settles quick and creamy. Excessive carbonation clouds an otherwise light-hazed, pallid yellow body. Dry aromas intensify the underwhelming character of a wheaty base... bready and lemony with clove-like incense as a by-product of the coriander and liquorice. Fluffy mouthfeel precedes a creamy swallow. Flavor is light and yeasty with citrus notes fluctuating between fruit and rind. Well-suited to a languid, humid day in August, but a satisfying alternative to stouts and barleywines on a blustery winter’s night.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Chilled 330ml bottle. Sharp sour yeast aroma reminds me of the dregs in a bottom of a fermenter that has been left there for a bit too long, yet its used by June 2007, so i’m assuming this is normal. Bit of mouldy lemon and spice there too, which isn’t encouraging I gotta say. Pale straw body with alot of haze and a foamy white head. Light touch of lemon-rind flavour in the body, with an acid tang. Carbonation seems quite creamy, with a drying yeasty note that lingers and seems off-putting. This bottle may have been a dud!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle corked. Poured hazy yellow with a large frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty sour citrus aroma. Light to medium body. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy pale yellow with a large foamy white head that lasts for a long time. Nose is orange, coriander, and honey. The flavor begins with more coriander, apricot and honey sweetness, and a rather interesting earthy note that reminds me of newly turned soil. Finish has an oily bitterness from bitter orange peel, and some yeast spiciness, almost like a tripel. This is underrated for some reason.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from ASDA. Hazy lemon gold, fluffy but shortlived white head and moderate condition. Low gentle corriander spice and lemon citrus in the nose, quite tangy and faintly lactic in the mouth with a balance of sweetness and some spiced notes, gentle milky sweet finish with some dry bitter spiciness at the end.
