Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham during their "Wheat Weekend". Pink colouring, but not technicolour, well not in this light anyway. Frilly lacing. Hops to start, then some sweetness that doesn’t linger, with a fairly bitter finish. Deliciously balanced - fruity bitter crispness.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
Pink and with a definite fruit taste.This surprised me as I am not a great fan of fruit beers. Very refreshing and would make an ideal summers drink. Strong mouthfeel with a lasting aftertaste of fruit.

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
A light onion pinkish coloured beer, slightly hazy, with a thick white head. The nose is extremely strong of fruit elements, in particular cranberries and raspberries (!), and a slightly hoppy finish. Light bodied, the taste is also strong on fruit, cranberries being the most distinct. The dry hoppiness is again there at the end with a lengthy bitter cranberry aftertaste. (Bottle - Purchased from the Brewery’s stall @ King’s Lynn’s Farmers Market).

Fin (7704) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle, from the Little Beer Shop, Ludlow, Salop, 10-03-07. Poured a wonderful pinky red colour with a large white head. Nice fruity nose, taste was a really good, crisp, and with a slightly sour taste, quite pleased to find that it wasn’t artificially sweet, tasted like a good wheat beer, really enjoyed this.

[500ml bottle from Iceni Brewery Shop] Pinkish-orange, no head and a slight fine fizz. Smells quite sweet, but on tasting is actually dry (evidence of the cranberries?). Summer fruits cluster in the background. There’s a hint of sour bitterness that doesn’t quite work with the sweet, dry finish, and makes me wonder if the cranberries are there to hide a below-average wheat beer. However, it’s still a decent beer and I like the idea of dry cranberries to and a crisp dryness to an already refreshing style.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2007
Cask handpull at Fat Cat, Norwich. Orangey/red colour with lasting thin pink/white head. Not a huge aroma. Some cranberry fruit in mouth. It’s alright. Not much cereal. Some hop presence on finish. It’s fine

Alphadelic (1770) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Had this at the Cambridge beer festival, wasn’t taking too many notes that day. Have been less than impressed by these guys in the past. This didn’t contain much of the fruity flavours but it really held onto the dryness of the cranberries. It lent something very different from a hop dryness. More of a red-wine tannin fuelled bite.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2005
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. An atrtractive bright red coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma is wheaty and the taste is quite bitter. A nice enough beer but if it were not for the colour you would just assume this is a bog standard wheat beer. The alleged fruit doesn’t come through in the aroma nor the taste.
