Bottled. A very hazy flat orangey looking beer with a short lived fluffy head. The aroma has butterscotch and caramel which I’d expect to find in an English bitter. The taste has some lemony wheaty flavours but again that diacetyl comes through. It’s not a bad drink but doesn’t really taste like it ought to.

Bottled.from Sainsbury’s beer festival. Hazy washing-up water/weak tea looking, there goes the head, weak yeasty aroma, bit of zip to the flavour when it’s given a good swirl, subtle lemon, hint of light spice but its a pale excuse for a witbier

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is notes of apple, plastic, detergent. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Cripes, man. After this and the Blonde, I’m starting to regret snapping up one bottle each of the five main Ch’Ti beers (at $10 each). Smells bad, bland in the mouth, I just dunno what good I can say...well, it looks right for the style, at least.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2005
Very cloudy yellow in colour. Long lasting pillow soft white head. Quite subtle aroma, spicy, yeasty with a bit of vanilla. Quite citrusy in flavour, and suprisingly tart/tangy. Very refreshing.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2005
750ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Cloudy yellow in appearance, head a bit fizzy, dissipates fairly quickly. Better on second pour with yeast swirl. Aroma yeasty, subdued wheat beer notes of coriander, orange, clove, but pinapple and something grainy and fresh, and something slightly metallic coming through. Chalky finish. Not bad, not great.

JonMoore (1809) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2005
Bottle from Tescos (Finest French Wheat Beer). Cloudy yellow colour with decent sized foamy white head. Fruity aroma. Taste is not bad; malty, citrus and grainy, some hops and slight cloves. Quite refreshing and drinkable.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2005
750ml corked bottle. I am going along with rauchbiers advice here, as i also had the Tesco Finest French Wheat. It wasn’t bad. Quite tangy, with a bit of citrus and some sour grain. Slight vanilla and clovey spicyness, but they aren;t as easy to detect as other beers of the same style. The mouthfeel was a little thin for my liking, but it was still quite refreshing.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2005
Bottle from Tescos (Finest French Wheat Beer. 750ml, in a shaker style glass. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a light foamy head. Aroma is sweet with citrus fruit. Flavour starts off nicely sweet malty but is soon overwhelmed by an odd sweet and fruit (lemon) combination, with some light wheat. Odd spice in the finish and some cheesyness that reminds me slightly of the flavours I got out of Schultheiss Berliner Weisse. The flavours aren’t perhaps working that well together, but it’s still fairly pleasent and very easy to drink. Not the ’finest’ witbier out there, but quite nice.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2004
Bottle, from Tesco (called Finest French Wheat Beer). Hazy lemon gold, poor shortlived fizzle of white foam, soft condition. Forced candy sweetness and lemon citrus in the nose, clumsy mix of low lemon, butterscotch and corriander in the mouth none of which seem in harmony with the other flavours. Gets a little too sweet before developing a chalky dryness in the finish with a lingering spicy corriander note. Messy.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
Opaque yellow. Fruity (peach, blueberry) aroma. Pineapple and a hint of pale malt in the palate. Then it gets bland and crisp.
