Very sweet fruity aroma. Golden amber colour. Very slight head. Quite hoppy taste. Fruity undertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berkshirejohn (4527) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2011
50cl bottle picked up in Hastings. Amber-gold in colour with a fast fading cream head; the aroma has German hops, some light coriander spice and some musty grains; unfortunately the taste is a bit of a let down - stewed, slightly lactic, malts; then a rather sticky caramel finish. Probably a lot better as a cask ale!

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Rating from an old notebook. Golden coloured, sparkling clear, thin white head. Doughy, wheaty aroma. Very smooth with carbonation that is neither too soft nor too prickely, bready, wheaty, caramel. Characteristic Harvey’s flavour from their yeast. A very good reasonably unique beer.

Mad_Ferret (648) - SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle. Clear honey amber with a short creamy bubbly off white head that leave some lace. Sweet caramel malty aroma with some wheat and hops. A bit weak smell. Taste is sweet caramel with some wheat, oranges, peach and flowery hops. Medium body with soft but nice carbonation. Tasty! More of an english pale ale with some wheat notes and a good hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle from the glorious Harveys shop in Lewes.
Copper coloured with a decent off white head. Lots of toffee and and a faint oxidised character. Pleasantly grainy, unusually so, and a resonable bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2009
500ml bottle from the brewery shop, and drunk out of the special Harvey’s sampling glass bought on the tour. Soft wheat flavour with a touch of sweetness, and the funky signature tones of the Harvey’s yeast and hop blend. Touch of red wine in the swallow. Decent and tasty brew.

bhensonb (11065) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Cask at the Market Porter. Copper color with an off-white head. Unusual aroma. Flavor of wheat with a slight citric overlay. Not quite medium bodied. Smooth carbonation. Wheat isn’t quite the same as barley. Growing on me though.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 30, 2007
500ml bottle. Clear light amber with an impressive white head that subsides. Aroma is mainly wheat and even a meaty note. Sweet flavour with a drying palate as per the description. Overall, tastes like a weaker version of De Koninck.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2007
500ml bottle from the brewery shop. Copper/amber colour with lasting beige head. Cereal and toffee aroma. It’s fine, nice enough wheaty flavour, doesn’t suffer too much from pasteurisation. Drinkable goodish balanced hop on end. Fine.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - MAR 20, 2004
Light dusty nose with a hint of honey, pale copper color, low fizzy head. Round sweet honeyish malt body. Little or no hop bitter but a light nut component in the background attempts to balance out the sweet caramel malt. Slightly oily mouthfeel and thin. Do think that by adding "Copper" to the name for the word "wheat" they are no longer obligated to offer the drinker anything a standard wheat has?
