3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlog rating. Old dusty bottle at the Chriso’s May tasting, London. It pours a pale golden/orange color with a pink-ish with a medium white head. Aroma is lightly bready, with notes of wild berries, toasted bread, dried fruits and crisp lemon skin. Taste is mildly sweet, yeasty, crispy and citrusy, with light notes of grapes skin, berries, dust and caramel. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, quite bland and dusty, but not bad at all

Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Huge thanks to Chrisso for the Brodies Blue whale! Hazed dark orange coloured pour with a big off white head. Aroma is staleish malts, caramel, sharp apple, mandarin. Flavour is composed of caramel, some faint blueberry, toast, berr and some stale malts. Palate is very highily carbonated and attacks the tongue. Showing some signs of age.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Judging by how old the ratings are below i’m not sure this beer is at its best. Although seemed to taste alright to me if a bit husky. Some prominent blueberries for sure, forest fruits, spongecake, a little spice.. not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brodies Whale found lingering in Chriso’s house of beer. It pours rose pink with a thick off-white head. The nose is toasty, blueberry skin, earth, assorted fruits of the forest and faint jam. The taste is crisp doughy, blueberry, soft fruits, grass and light bitterness with a dry finish. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A bit wishy-washy, but not bad given its age.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Pours a hazy dark orange with a very Effervescent, big bubble head with a very cool looking blueish tint.
S - Some blueberry, banana, wheat, lemon and zesty yeast
T - got the Lemon zest wheat, and slight banana that you get from most hefe’s. Much less Blueberry than I was expecting and also much hoppier than I would ever have thought. Clean and slightly sweet aftertaste which is where the banana’s come through with the slight Blueberry flavor.
M&D - Pretty effervescent, even for a wheat, mayb etoo much at first. But this mellows out nicely and becomes quite smooth. I could drink a couple of these on a nice warm day.

Cask (William IV, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Pretty stinky aroma. Light berry taste which spoils what would otherwise only be a boring beer. This has no reason to exist. There is no problem to which this beer is the solution.

Bottle from the brewery, Feb 2011, consumed at home shared with dad 30.08.11 Pours hazy orange amber with white head. Touch wheaty as would expect, but some sweetness. Really quite nice, fruity but whilst I don’t necessarily get blueberries there are certainly berries of some description in the mouth. Quite good. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3
