A stylish and indulgent contemporary creation. A wealth of ideas and techniques have been poured into the making of beer. It has influences from traditional and new world brewing, with a nicely balanced rich body cut with notions of citrus and a development of spice. A more-ish beer full of character and zest. This is the Horns respectfully doffing our caps, to both the classic European and New World brewing techniques.

NOTE: Shortly to be replaced by a new version at 4.0% and with a very different recipe. Please do NOT entere ratings for that beer here - add as a new beer instead.

September 16, 2014 - at Craft Covent Garden; keg. Cloudy gold with a decent lasting foamy/creamy off-white head. Aroma - Belgian wit all right - yeast, fruity esters, grassy - nice. Taste follows, add more grass and a little funk - simple, not too sweet. Solid body, a little astringent - nice and lively - pretty solid, hint of rope in the aftertaste - I liked that.

Cask@Reading Beer Festival 2012. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is wheat, quite zesty and a bit tropical fruity notes with mild yeastyness. Flavour is rather similar in a nice balance, mild-not-too-sweet toffeeish notes are also lurking in there. Balanced and pleasant.

Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 08/09/12. A very hazy yellow coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A zesty wheaty aroma and taste. A decent body. Good flavours in this. Tasty and surpassed my expectations.

Bottle. thanks bigbro
Pours light hazy yellow with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet, light citrus, some wheat, banana, light grainy. Lowish carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has grainy wheat, grassy, citrus. Lingering bitterness. Quite easily drinkable.

6 Slightly peachy perfumed aroma. Peaches and cream.
4 Rich peachy colour, tiny head, lots of lacing.
6 Perhaps too peachy - again, peaches and cream
4 Full and smooth. Nice hoppy fruity finish - a good bite.
13- Quirky and curious, but I do like it.

The_Osprey (5487) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Nov 2012 - unexpected flavour - sour, medicinal, enduring chemical flavour - antiseptic?, bit of lemon and spice. I’ve never had a wheat beer that tastes like this before. Not my cup of tea.

Cask at the Southampton Arms, Kentish Town - 20/04/12. Hazy golden with a small white head. Wheat and citrus nose which also lends to the taste with a touch of spice in there allied to yeast. Medium bodied, dry finish - ok.

RichardGretton (4577) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Golden beer with a good head. The aroma is fruity with some dryness, and the flavour is fruity with some sourness and bitterness. Overall a good beer for an English wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
