Bottle from m&s. Red ale with not much head. Aroma of forest fruits. Taste is wheaty dryness and a sweet fruitiness. Palate is dry and a bit fizzy. Didn’t really enjoy it, much prefer the cherry wheat m&s do.

Borresteijn (5057) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
33cl Bottle from M&S A’dam, Christmas gift, thanks K&P! Clear pinkish red colour, pink head. Aroma of raw wheat, grain, hibiscus, raspberry, not very sweet. Flavour of wheat, raw wheat, grain, something floral and fruity, medium sweet, wheaty finish. Light bodied. Not great.

uckelman (338) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Pours clear, reddish amber, pink head which quickly dissipates. Aroma is wheaty with a hint of flowers (hibiscus, I guess?). Very lively and sweet. Reminiscent of red soda. Not great.

sarauckelman (225) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Clear Ruby amber with no head. Not much aroma, and what’s there is your standard wheat beer. Flavor waffles between fruity and flowery (almost a bit kool-aid sweet) and wheat-y, in alternating peaks. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, competing with a strong caronbation. Except for the strong, pleasant wheat flavor, this almost tastes more like a wine cooler than beer.

koshack (326) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Piana drobna, lekko różowa ( jak i piwo). Zostawia śslady na szkle, ale szybko opada. Kolor różowego wina. Aromat owocowy, kojarzący się z czerownymi owocami, trochę czerwona porzeczka. Nie jest bardzo intensywny, ale przyjemny W smaku podobnie owocowe, przychodza skojarzenia ze słabym winem. Wytrawne, słodycz prawie niewuczuwalna. Przypomina rozwodnienego lambica. Pszenicy nie czuć. Nie jest złe, ale raczej nie powtórzę.

deanso (5932) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
33cl bottle from M&S, The Hague. Thin white head. Floral aroma. Clear light red pour. Odd aftertaste. Not something I would like to drink again. Interesting idea though

jamesie1857 (1499) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
330ml bottle from M&S - Red body, thin white head with a pinkish hue. Nose is floral, a bit of cereal - not sure what - with the taste rather clean with a flower petal aftertaste. Nothing inspiring.

Marduk (3189) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 25, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear red color. Tiny size head, disappears. Sweet, cherry, rose dirty notes in aroma. Rose hip, sour, molten jelly, sweet taste. Sweet-sour body. Slick mouthfeel.

330ml bottle (M&S, Tallinn)
Watery red berry aroma, twiggy, some cheap sourish wheatiness too. Don’t mix something sharp like hibiscus with wheat, IMHO, it brings out the worst in the wheat. Some tinned tomato too now, ewww. Looks like cheap supermarket no-brand red berry mix drink. Perfume too. TAste is a mess, weak watery wheat, with some off sharp berry aspects. Watery palate. Finish mostly the wheat, fortunately. Made me cringe as I swallowed it. Strangely has some hoppy bitterness in the finish. First class weak shit. At least I never have to have it again.

From 0,33l bottle, BBD: 03/2015, Pours clear reddish - pomegranate liquid, minimal white soapy head disappeared immediately. Aroma: fine, light wheat, light floral, light fruity, red fruits, Taste: light sweet, light bitter, medium sour, some red fruits, nothing more, not very tasty, rather monotone sweet and sour mineral water, Palate: light body, thin texture, soft to flat carbonation, abrupt sour finish, Overall: not very interesting, drinkable, but that’s all.
