3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a cloudy golden with a large rocky and bubbly white head that’s quite audibly bubbly, potentially gone bad and foams up far too fast, even in a clean glass. Earthy wheaty notes hit the nose with a fair dose of clove and toast bread, a slight grassiness, and a hint of lemon. Crisp dry taste with a fair amount of wheat and German yeast, light banana and a slight wheaty fluffy sweetness on the finish. A bit bready throughout.

Lemon hop like flavor is fairly nice though not too much of a hefe for me. Little clove flavors. Wheat flavors dominate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell - London. Many "thanks" to Cloin! This beer has been aged c. two years, so will be quite different than it perhaps ought to be. Pours unclear gold with a quickly fading white froth of a head. The nose holds ripe citrus, old grain and dried wheat. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, with some sugary doughy wheat. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary finish, with slight signs of oxidation, caramel, wheat bread. So so.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at Craft Clerko. Thanks to Colin who bought this old-timer for real cheap.... It pours cloudy golden with an orange hue and thick white head. The nose is sweet, oily, sweet banana candy, light must, straw and faint oxidation. The taste is sweet, banana, clove, candy, clove rock, toasty grain, straw, spice and rice pudding with a dry, sweetish finish. Medium body and decent, foamy carbonation. A bit sweet, spicy and old. Cloin is a dirtbag.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Cloin, as ’Hoppin’ Frog Wild Frog Wheat Ale’. Undated, but possibly a touch old. Opaque orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head, no lacing. Aroma is plastecine, a touch sour, wheaty, plastic. Body is light, very foamy. Taste is light, papery, biscuity. Very little flavour at all. Pretty poor.
