Cloudy wheat beer. Orange peel, fruity taste. Quite nice but quite a staid example of its style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle - Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wheat, some grass and mild yeasty notes. Flavour is being quite similar. Expected more in the coriander claim, but nothing like as spicy as I’d hope.

SarkyNorthener (4133) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle from M&S. Hazy pale yellow. Small foam head. The aroma is rather sweet smelling maybe banana and mild orange peel.. The taste is a little spicey, orange peel and you can detect coriander in there as stated on the bottle. The beer is too weak on the palate, medium carbonation. An OK Belgian white, just too basic..

jamestulloch (3502) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2012
UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 Bottle from M&S. Hazy, pale yellow body with a large, but quickly diminishing white head. Light lacing. Aroma of orange rind, some spices. Nice, fruity flavour - banana, orange and lemon. Subtle hint of coriander. Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Fizzy carbonation. A decent wheat beer, just lacking a little in body and depth of flavour.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle from M&S, Thurmaston, Leics. Looks lovely - hazy banana colour, with creamed head. Smells slightly muted, with bananam raincoat and citrus. Rather sweet, with a jumble of flavours, some of which work better than others. The fruit is rather mushed and the sweet puddingness is a bit cloying. Very faint vomit notes. 7 or 8 years ago, the witbeer that M&S sold was a lot better than this.

ManVsBeer (8777) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2012
Cloudy with a good citrus aroma, not as pronounced in the taste which is somewhat disappointing, and looks a little weak.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
Traditional cloudy wheat beer akin to Hoegaarden but a little more yellow in colour. Aroma and taste are a bit more bland tho. Refreshing but not inspiring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
