Cask at the Mill, Cambridge. Cloudy yellow.a bit of skimmy white head on the top. Citrus and coriander in the aroma. Proper Witbier smell with a bit of funk. The aroma isn’t intense like it is with many of the best Witbiers, but that’s ok.bittersweet taste. Bit of cheese. Chalky, light and slightly bitter palette. A pretty good shot at a pretty good style.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Gravity at GBBF 2014. Poured a cloudy yellow, with a dense white head. Aroma of apples, banana and cloves. Wheat flavours, with some sweet mango and dry straw. Finish was slightly spicy, with some grassy hop and yeast esters.

The_Osprey (2937) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Cask at GBBF. Vibrant pale golden yellow colour, big foamy white head. Aroma is wheaty and herbal. Body is medium, low carbonation, smooth. Taste is breathy orange, lemon, herbal. Crazy drinkable. Listed on ratebeer as a wit, though I had it down as a saison. Either way, this was a nice surprise.

Cask at The Nags Head in Reading. Hazy golden yellow beer. Great light take on wheat beer. The missus loved this one. Bit thin but only 4 per cent.

A good combination of wheat & Belgium yeast marrying into a slightly sweet fresh tasting beer. Not a lot of depth but a good session beer. Rated by BrewTom
