Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2013
Keg at the Cock, 16/08/13. Very lightly hazed golden yellow with little in the way of a head. Nose is citrus, light peach, hops, grain, orange. Taste comprises earthy hops, light pine, mineral notes, bitter orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light hop bitterness in the finish. Tasty stuff, more IPA than Wit !

Erasmus_ro (1477) - Alabama, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Cask @ Cock Tavern as Rye Wit IPA, 20/08/13. Pours a straw yellow with a small, white head. Aroma is quite wit-like. Spicy and herbal. Taste is a whole bunch of fruits: Lime and lemon, pineapple and exotics. Somewhat spicy with some gooseberry there as well. Light straw and wheat detectable as well as (black) pepper. No idea where the rye has gone, but really, with something tasting this good, does one care? Soft and smooth and full, no carbonation.

Hazy yellow colour with foamy, white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma with some citrus, grass and tropical fruit. Some bitterness in the taste together with hoppy citrus and tropical fruits. Semi-dry finish.

DanielBrown (3913) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines and bought by Karen - thanks Karen (I won a footballing bet). I love this stuff. The fragrance is perfect. Thin in the gob, but wow, what a flavoursome aromatic faceful. Wit and IPA - 2 of my favourite things. Rye is another one. I love the idea of hopped wheat beers - this is where progressive UK brewers are winning the game.

The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Scopey has it right. Drunk lunchtime after day before. Wish I could drink a lot more beers in the sun. BD and Craven Arms have a real miss on those fronts.

jmgreenuk (4961) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge wines, Birmingham. Poured a slightly cloudy yellow with a white frothy white head. The aroma is weak grassy, leading to a medium bitter with a loads of grass and peppery spice. The palate and the finish are a little watery but its a super tasty beer. Can’t wait to hit the brewery.

Fruity to start and dry and bitter on the finish. Much like me according to the wife.
