Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko/heavy (thanks!). Comes as White Dog Norwegian Wheat Beer. Cloudy yellow (radler like) coloured, small creamy white head, odd lactic spicy nose. Interesting yeasty coriander taste with mild citrusy fruity taste.

wheresthepath (1813) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle at the Greyfriar, Reading. Cloudy yellow with a middling white head. Quite fizzy, which I normally dislike but it seemed to suit this beer. Lots of lemon, some bready yeast, a little cut grass and a wisp of smoke. Very clean, crisp and refreshing. I’m not usually a fan of this style but this one hit the spot for me.

johndoughty (4458) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a medium head. Wheat dominates with bitterness in background. Reasonable but pretty ordinary. To be honest I am not so keen on this style so perhaps not the best person in the world to comment on it.

Holmen2 (1882) - NORWAY - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle on board Fridtjofen 16.07.15. Clody yellow. White head and lacing. Aroma of citrus and coriander, with a hint of grass and cloves. Similar taste and aftertaste. Very refreshing!!! This bear has definitely improved since last I tried it a few years ago.

mR_fr0g (5829) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Keg at the Beavertown Lervig tap takeover. Aroma is mineral orange, hop leaf, wheat doughy grains. Flavour is crisp dougyy grains, orange hop matter. Hazed orange golden coloured pour with a thick lasting white head. Palate is light and grainy, wheat, highish carbonation. OK. Nothing special.

Theydon_Bois (12885) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Keg at the Beavertown tap takeover, 25/04/15. Lightly hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is yeast, banana, straw, light citric rinds, grassy, peach. Taste comprises caramel, banana, candyfloss, bubblegum, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, more a Belgian Ale hybrid than a witbier for me.

metalspice (330) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - APR 24, 2015
Uklart ferskenfarget med kort hvitt skum. Lukt av brøddeig, banan og noe sur frukt. Søt banan i smaken med en sur avslutning. Utvannet smak og noe høyt på kullsyre.
