Bottled 27/07/13. A hazy golden coloured beer with a white head a la hefe. Good authentic flavours here. Wheaty and slightly spicy. Same in the nose. A good length of flavour. Very competent.

Cask. Okay bright golden-yellow pour. Banana, clove, orange, citrus. Has all the right characteristics, but it’s undermined by a cloying sweetness that made this one a bit of a chore near the end.

Bottle. Pours a light gold colour with a thin white head, weak wheat aroma with some spice, the taste is bitter with plenty of spices with short bitter finish.

Good effervescences, aroma clove like phenolics of a wheat beer, appearance a little too light for a German style, taste as aroma lacking the banana notes I like in a weisse, which is funny as all other beers I have tried from this brewery have a banana note to them.

Keg at the Earl of Essex, London. Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a faint, white foam head. Doughy wheat nose with faint lemon tang. Light to medium sweet flavor with more doughy malts, some straw, mild wheat, faint white sugar. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, still more dough, faint yeasty wheat, some cereal. Very basic, easy stuff. It does the trick on a warm afternoon when cycling around London.

500ml Bottle. Lively really didnt cover this one. It took 15 inutes to pour it into the glass. If I hadn’t been such a fan of Cotswold’s other beers I’d given up and gone and made a cup of tea. The bottle I got were all close to their expirey date and that may have explained their vitality but it was VARY VARY fizzy. Once things had settles down and some liquid had formed the wheat beer proves to be a very pale slightly cloudy yellow. The nose was summery with wheat, hops, yeast and a slight hint of citrus. These also came out in the taste with some sspices. I beautiful drink for the summer - IF you can get past the over lively start.

[Keg at the Royal Standard of England, nr Beaconsfield] Yellow with a slight haze and a moderate white head. Strong, rather acidic lemon flavour up front almost hides the mellow banana behind. There’s a big hit of spice at the end - coriander and cloves. It’s OK, but a little harsh - somehow needs mellowing out a bit to integrate the flavours better.

Hazy yellow body, white head. This is just reallypoor try on weizen. Green apple and urea. Too carbonated even for a weizen.

Bottle from SH Jones Wines, Leamington, shared round The Jenners. Authentic looks and spritz; pineapple hazy with a tall rocky head. Enticing, woodsy, ester-laden aroma with pithy, lemon barley and botanical G+T notes as well as the expected banana and clove. Fresh and sparkling with clean clove, orange and mellow banana candy spiciness. Uncommonly good English wheat beer- possibly the best UK attempt at a hefe I’ve tasted.
