Cask: Special - JDW Autumn Fest 2010.
This new, naturally cloudy wheat beer has been brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. It is created using pale Pilsener malts and wheat, with hops exclusively from the Savinja Valley, producing a continental-style beer with a floral nose and herbal, spicy undertones.

Leighton (18524) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2011
Cask. Pours cloudy, orange-gold with a soft, off-white and foamy head. Banana and spice in the nose with some yeast and dough. Has medium sweetness with notes of banana, clove and honey, plus a lightly bitter touch. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet and fruity on the finish with light spice and yeast. Nice beer.

Fin (9578) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Babbington, JDW, Derby, Derbyshire 06.11.10 This is a hazy pourer as I expected. Some banana, touch floral, bit of clove. This is far better than I expected but then perhaps it’s because I was drinking this alongside the Thwaites Ribble Rouser (truly boring) and The Freeminer, Hairway to Steaven (Dad took this back) Spiciness as well showing in the mouth. It’s fine. A6 A3 T6 P4 Ov13 3.2

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2010 1)The Ritz, Lincoln. Muddy orange with a saliva-like halo. Jammy apricot and clove aroma with a scatter of earth and authenticity. Acidic and earthy with clove, biscuit crumbs; mouldy banana and TCP-swilled ashtray hints. Has a good go but let down by condition. 525312. 2) The Felix Holt, Nuneaton. Proper conditioning this time. Authentic clovey spice and banana. Definitely in the top 5 English hefeweizens I’ve encountered- upgraded to 637313.

leaparsons (9837) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2010
Cask, Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Hazy gold and orange with a thin head. Aromas are yeasty with banana and citrus. Caramel with spices, including coriander. Flavours are smooth, sweet caramel followed by tart citrus and yeast. Medicinal notes with yeast. Dry on the finish. Not bad.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2010
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Cloudy amber with a ring of white head - somehow looking rather flat; typical weisbier aroma with damp wheat and cloves; quite thick and grainy in the mouth, almost like drinking a banana smoothie; dry and spicy finish. A pleasant weisbier.

1st November 2010
Spoons Fest! Very hazy gold beer, Gost of a head. Smooth very low carbonation palate. Mild banana, a little cloves. Fair bit of wheaty malt. Tiny bit of orangey citrius before a smooth finish. A little more carbonation would have been nice but decent enough.

SilkTork (5541) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2010
JDW Autumn Fest 2010 - Rochester. A sweet and fruity wheat beer - honey and porridge and strawberry flavours. Quite attractive, though would appreciate a balancing bitter edge.

imdownthepub (13226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Clouded orange gold with slight head. Hmmm, tempting to mark this up a little for going totally crazy at a style and missing the mark. Nothing subtle about this, heavy spicing on the nose, yeasty, lemon pancake and altogether a little weird. Some banana. Not mad about it.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2010
Cask at Pilgrims Progress (JDW), Bedford, after the end of the ’Spoons Beer Festival ’10. I thought Spinning Dog was a really good name for a brewery. Hazy gold. Large white head, thanks to a sparkler. Sour aroma of old fashioned liquid glue (’Gloy’ it was called). Taste is rather better: sweetness, sourness, wheat, milk, like an exotic breakfast cereal. Slight bitterness. Not bad.
