2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in March 2006. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Slight citric note in the short aroma. Thin watery mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale insipid malts give a slight herbal note to the weak base. Wheaty cereal flavour in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly sweet and syrupy but little else. Is this Weiss President rebadged? Poor effort.

From cask at Bon Accord. Pours slight cloudy orange with a small off-white head and creamy. Citrusy, yeasty and apple fruity aroma. Fruity flavoured with a light yeasty note and a light malt base. Medium dry and with a little bitterness coming through. Surely has some Belgian character to it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2008 Cask, Out of The Vaults, Leicester. Clearish yellowy haze blanketed with froth. Estery banana, ripe orange peel, leafy citrus hop, and faint seaweed on the snout. Dusty restrained Swedish biscuit spice, citrus and biscuity malt. Smells a bit Bavarian, drinks more Belgian spiced, with a tang of US hops. Like Everards Hazy Daze, another pretty tasty UK take on the style.

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest 07. Cloudy lemon with little head. Hefty dose of caramel in the body with some spice, clove, maybe corriander. Thin and bitter on the finish with a touch of lemon. I was not sure, it was drinkable but uninteresting.

This isnt really what i expect from a belgiun wit. Aroma was white chocolate and caramel with floural hops. Taste was similar touch of citrus, not really too sure what style this should be.

Cask@The Market Porter, Borough, London. I was pretty dissapointed. This doesn’t taste like a Belgian Wit at all, more like bitter, with some subtle clovey wheat characters, and i mean really subtle. Very thin mouthfeel. Hard to go on too much about this beer, it was slightly above aerage and quite drinkable, but there just simple wasn’t much going on.

Cask at Bohemian, Deal, Kent.
I kind of agree with Gazza in that English wheat beers just do not bear any relation to their continental cousins. However, I don’t have a problem with that as the citrus fruit and american hops in this hit all of the right buttons for me. Simply gorgeous.

Cask: Jan Primus, Utrecht. Clear golden color, small off-white head. Aroma of english hops, bit sour, some grains and spices. Taste is sweet and sour, some wheat and grain, very bitter. Thick body. Bitter palate. It’s not a belgian white, but it’s ok.
