Tap at the Slip, York. Very sweet, slightly smoky. Translucent (when it settles) and dark. Persistent head. Alcohol is too prominent.

Bottle from Cheers Liquor Store, Todmorden. Dark red with a small bubbly head. Not a bad ’weizen’ for a non-German, mainly ale brewer (although I believe the head brewer is from an adjacent country). There’s a dark-fruit sweetness to this ale with an underlying roasted character. It fizzes a little in the palate.

imdownthepub (13374) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco, Uttoxeter, Staffs. Dark brown with off white head. Initially fairly sweet, fruity with a vague strawberry and blackberry flavour this is followed by a sweet grainy note, some roasted qualities, licorice plus a very light smoked hint. Not bad overall really.

dogbomb (1152) - ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Cask. Dark murky brown with an offwhite head. Smells of vanilla maltiness. Taste is vanilla, chocolate and bags of wheat. Quite sweet but lots of body and a semi-dry bitter finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Said to be a "dark wheat" beer, this is actually a bit of a shocker. Colour is murky copper. Aroma is sweet with a hint of pencil shavings. Taste is rather watery with some ill-defined sweet fruitiness, slight bitterness, and a singular lack of wheaty traits.

bobinlondon (1291) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2008
Gravity cask at Watford beer fest. Dark and cloudy with an off white head. Fairly sweet for style but earthy and wholesome.

Cask at Pig’s Ear BF. A rather sweet dark wheat beer. Too sticky, it’s all sugar and bananas.
