berkshirejohn (5827) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
50cl bottle. Cloudy straw coloured with a dense white head; wheaty, yeasty aroma with a touch of citrus; soft with a dry chalky body, and a rather watery consistency, with some orange zest flavour over bready dough; and a dry clean finish. Not bad.

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 Bottle from M&S Thurmaston. Pours a very pale yellow with a small, soapy head. Uneven looks - seems to be cloudy or clear depending on where you look which, combined with the high amount of sediment, means it’s not the most appetising beer to look at - even once I’d given it time to settle. Strong lemon aroma. Light citrus taste, sweet and tart initially but turning a little dry with a relatively short finish. Thin texture, slight carbonation and a medium to abrupt finish. Not bad but far from the most satisying example of my favourite style.

Bottle from Marks & Spencer. Pale cloudy beige yellow colour, not much head & a lot of sediment. Sweet & sour banana & cereal aroma. Dry banana, clove & orange flavour. Sharp with bitter sweet aftertaste. Drinkable but not my sort of beer.

Bottled@The Chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011 "Donkey Dork Lord Edition". Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wheat, some grass and mild yeasty notes. Flavour is being quite similar. Quite standard Belgian Wit, with no big surprises.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with a small head. Hints of grass on the nose, light wheat. Mild spice flavor, some sugar. Kind of bland. Light bodied with average carbonation. Very faint yeast to finish, light sugar. Just alright.
