Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma sweet buttery combined with notes of elderberries. The flavor is sweet with notes of butter, elderflowers, and wheat, leading to a lightly tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... GSRARO Throwdown... Clear, light yellow ale with little to no head. Not very aromatic – maybe some pale grain and herbal notes; maybe not. Power of suggestion? Wishful thinking? Light-bodied and fizzy. Perfectly balanced, but bland, lifeless, watery and thin. Short, crisp finish. Bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, courtesy TheCheeseMan. Pours a clear, medium golden color with a minimal, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is vegetal and buttery, with intense juniper that overpowers whatever underlying wheat there might be. Favors are yeast and bready up front, with acrid juniper and weird, bitter vegetable notes. Light bodied and fizzy, even the mouthfeel disappoints. This one is a drainpour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottles from the brewery prototype box, 21st Dec 08 and 1st January 09. Pale gold with a line of head. Aroma of wheat and lemon peel & passion fruit with a hint of honey and toffee. Taste of honeyed malts and a decent hop bitterness. Surprisingly hefty mouthfeel. Good lingering aftertaste. Bit of a dusty dryness too.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in the mixed prototype box. Clear gold, lasting white head. Juniper on aroma, some yeast. A very tasty slightly spicy beer. Cereal isnt overly evident. Good hop stong on finish. Bit of creamy wheat on aroma maybe. Finish is excellent, that bit of spicy juniper and hop. Finishes better than it starts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (no label orange cap) thanks to Magic Dave6. Golden orange color. Thin white head. My first Wheat ale. It tastes indeed like a mixture of Wheat beer with an ale. Slightly bitter. Hints of banana (much less than the average Hefeweizen though). Other fruit also present (mostly citric fruits). Rather refreshing and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint, cask served in excellent condition and at a comfortable drinking temperature at Aikman’s Cellar Bar in St Andrews. Clear, copper-golden body under a decent white head that laces moderately around the glass. Great appealing aroma of hoppy freshness. Sappy fruits in flavour with notes of grapefruits, juniper and berries. Has also got a slightly wheat beer touch. A fresh, dry, living and well-bodied product [04.11.2008].
