3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sold at Tesco Finest French Wheat Beer. 750 ml bottle, corked and caged. Cloudy pale yellow beer. Very thick fluffy white head. Aroma is very wheaty with light lemon/orange citrus, soft fruit and a touch of dustiness. Palate is surprisingly watery, but has a light citrusy character. A bit of soft spicy flavour. Light coriander and orange. Lingering wheatiness and spice. It’s a decent wit, but not a great one.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, bought at the Eurotunnel terminal. Pale yellow, cloudy, large head. Aroma of cinnamon. Cinnamon is present in the flavour, too, together with other spices (e.g. coriander) and hints of citrus fruit. Spicy and pleasantly hopped finish and a touch of mint in the aftretaste. Very refreshing and full of fascinating herbal flavours.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellowish with moderate white head. Weird tequila-like (?!) aroma. Flavor is grainy with an unpleasant dusty taste. Also lightly sour citrus flavors. A bad bottle?

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
250ml Bottle (Mallaskukko, Turku).
Pale yellow, pretty lively - feeds a large light head. Light on the tongue, slight citrus acidity. Coriander and slightly yeasty taste. Very refreshing on a hot summer day.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy pale yellow, rich head. Fairly sweet and light bodied with spritzy mouthfeel. Some freshening light citrus, but the flavour is well light, resulting in an almost thn mouthfeel and a light metallic touch. Still it works as a very light refreshing summer quencher, sort of Hogaarden light.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 06-05. Pours a pale golden color with lots of effervescence and a hazy appearance. Head is fairly small, white, and fizzy with most of it diminishing somewhat quickly. Nose is not bad with a tart souness of lemon, dust, yeast, and wheat with a house character. Taste is very similar with a slightly tart lemon sourness, dust, yeast, and lightly of esters. Palate is light to medium, moderate cabonation, and a slick feel. Finishes with lemon sourness, some bitterness, and a soapy note. Not too bad at first, but kind of hard to drink after a few drinks. Interesting interpretation of the style but not really a good one.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a light pale yellow gold, some white bubbles but they disappeared quickly, looks like lots of forced carbonation?
light scent of a pale ale, I have had some pale ales that had more of a scent, little taste for a pale ale to, disappointing, light citrus lemon taste, a pinch of wheat in the mouth, not much to write home about here, thin mouth feel, could be a thirst quincher on a hot day but I can find other beers that taste better then this to mow my lawn with, this was like drinking a soda only less.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
As Tescos Finest French Wheat Beer. LIght aromas of wheat, yeast and spice. Hazy lemon color with ferocious white head that laces. Starts with lemon, yeast spice, passes to a papery taste which passes quickly, ending with a hint of herb, and some hop bitterness. Definitely a dry finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750m Bottle. Cork couldn’t wait to get out of the bottle. Slightly hazy, straw coloured body with a decent head and rings of lacing. Soft spices on the nose and some lemon in the taste although it falls away pretty quickly, even a little watery. Easily drinkable though not very memorable or very refreshing.
