Cask conditioned @ SWA, Southampton. Citrusy aromas and faint spicy yeast. Sweet and tangy

Not the best Harviestoun beer - but with so many other good beers in their portfolio this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm also not quite sure what they are attempting here, it's not spicy enough to be a Belgian wheat, too thin for a German wheat... maybe the UK Wheat category should be created for unspiced, 4-5% bland beers? Very pale in colour, almost lager like, with an underlying lemony aroma and taste. A fairly dry, bitter finish. Unusual, but not unpleasant. (sampled on Cask in Royal Oak, Wigan)

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2004 Cask Conditioned, Royal Standard, Wooburn Common. Not really much like a Belgian White at all. Looks like a barely carbonated lager. Tastes like a normal bitter with a bit of sourness. Odd, but not unpleasent.

leaparsons (8311) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2003
Aromas are both sweet and sour. This gold-yellow beer is typical of an English wheat and NOT a Belgian Wit. This is more like a standard bitter with more sourness. Still a decent beer but why not have an English Wheat? Its a separate style.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
RichardGretton (4292) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2003
Looks more like an English pale ale than a wheat beer. The aroma reminds me of straw, but overall the the beers aroma comes across as very fresh. The flavour is bitter and lightly citric with slight sour notes. A different wheat beer style, not as good as the Belgian or German wheat beers by any means, but reasonable.

3.8
   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
omhper (19950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Pale yellow. Vanilla and citrus aroma. Light bodied, rather sweet with orangey finish. Very refreshing. Seems like they have something similar to summer in Scotland too...
