COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - July 2010.
A pale copper coloured wheat beer, bursting with summery flavours. A blend of continental hops give a soft bitterness balanced by a floral hoppy finish and then rounded off with an orangey citrus afterpalate. This is guaranteed to slip down a treat.

Cask at the Red Lion, Isleworth, Bank Holiday Festival, 27th August 2010. Pale amber. Clove, orange peel and frankincense nose. Quite fresh initial taste for this strength but then hefty stewed fruit flavours come through. Weight is good - not heavy but robust.

Cask@GBBF2010. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, earth, some mild bisquity notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same with also some mild honeyish notes. I think it hides it’s wheat rather well...

mabel (5762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2010
[3267-20100803] Cask sample. Sweet honey-like grass aroma mixed with an odd potpourri floral note. Clear, medium orange body with a quick foamy white head. More fruity honey in the flavour with potpourri hops and an odd fruity aftertaste. Medium body. Really? A wheat beer? That’s weird.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2010
Cask handpump at GBBF ’10. Gold with a small white head. Underarm aroma with some paint. Sweet taste, a bit watery, with a little Weetabix. Some bitterness. No sign of the ’orangey afterpalate’, which would have been nice. Fair attempt.

Cask at GBBF 2010. A very pale copper colour with a very thin white head. Loads of spices in the aroma with more than a hint of fruit. The taste is all fruit and wheat.
