On tap at GBBF 05. Having just tried one disappointing UK weiss, here was an instant opportunity to rescue things. Cloudy orange, with a white head. Smells delicious - like mandarin cheesecake! Very delicious in the mouth too: orange, citric, chalk. Smooth, balanced, sweet and dry. Excellent stuff from this very reliable brewery - it tastes so fresh.

tombyars (1357) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2011
First tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with thin creamy white head. Strong aroma of sweet oranges and roast grain long in intensity. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Complex malts give a strong fruity flavour of orange, barley sugar and golden syrup in the base. Sweet highland toffee and aromatic herbs also evident. Floral hop resins give a spicy bitterness to the long aftertaste. Finish is sweet with orange liquer notes long in the mouth. An excellent bavarian wheat beer and highly recommended.

Sampled @ RB Danish Summer Gathering 2013 day 1, Ulfborg. Bottle. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. I get orangepeel and a slight sour-bitterness. Taste lightly wheat, lightly bitter, lightly citrussy and orangepeel. Quite nice indeed. Average body and carbonation.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF 2005. A hazy orange coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma was very nice with wheat, yeast, spices and lemons. The taste is quite lemony with spicy coriander notes. Clean and tasty. Not had too many Cairngorm beers over the years but they do seem to do some good stuff.
