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 donít have a problem with that as the citrus fruit and american hops in this hit all of the right buttons for me. Simply gorgeous.

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...

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.

leaparsons (8478) - 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.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2005

DruncanVeasey (7349) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2008
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.

yespr (33244) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
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.

caesar (5468) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2005
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. Itís not a belgian white, but itís ok.
