3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tesco Finest French Wheat Beer. Very pale hazy gold, seems to be overly cloudy, thin white head. The nose is very subdued, all the classic white beer aromas are there,but they seem to be played down, in the distance if you like. Palate is medium bodied, clean and certainly refreshing, as you would hope from this style, finish is rather short. A good, average white beer style, perhaps Tesco should review their "Finest" range...

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl bottle, as shown. Hazy, impenetrable pale yellow colour (blanche-r even than most wheat bears I know), big creamy head. Aroma of sweet bananas, but with a lemony yeast touch added. Bananas dominate the flavour, too, but they’re far less sweet than the aroma seemed to indicate. There’s even a whiff of perfume. Sour and slightly bitter finish, citric aftertaste. A lean wheat beer, less fruity than the German kind (Paulaner, Weihenstephan, you name ’em), and not as full-bodied. But a good wheat beer for warm weather, and it’ll grow on you as you keep drinking - which is what I’m doing right now. ;=)

Sweet and yeasty wheat-malty aroma with a grainy touch and moderately fruity notes of citrus and oranges, accompanied by coriander and peppery spices. Moderately sweet flavour, light to almost medium bodied with a rather smooth carbonation. Yeasty and wheaty taste with distinctive fruity notes of citrus, orange zests, as well as spicy coriander; medium-dry wheat-accented finish with a citric and coriander spicy touch. 20.X.10

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.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 There are interesting champagne flavours in this otherwise bland, lifeless and watery pale beer. Probably best drunk well chilled on a hot day. [2.8]
I’m now drinking it well chilled a couple of days later, and, indeed, it is a pleasant, fruity, fragrant and refreshing beer. Nice. [3.2]
