Gurthnar (1771) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle from M&S. Aroma sourish, light chocolate. Caramel. Clear amber-ruby colour. Instantly disappearing head. Taste is lightly sourish, light flowery. Not really reminiscent of wheat beers. Good beer, interesting.

johndoughty (3992) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Purple and looked very similar to a glass of Ribena. Tasted nothing like a wheat beer. Different but I did not enjoy it. An experiment too far.

Beese (1784) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from M&S, Watford. Poured a clear, dark pink colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of strawberries, barley sugar and slightly tart fruit. Moderately sweet flavours of gooseberry, straw and honey. Finish was bready malt, plums and mellow, balanced sweetness. Nothing outstanding, but I thought this was a pretty quaffable number.

Beersiveknown (2999) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle from m&s cookstown.
an attractive pale scarlet, no head. Steady sparkle of gentle carbonation. Rose petals on nose, clear obviously filtered, bready wheat notes, building into slightly tart fruity red berry with long finish. Body not quite as expected but decent refresher.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle fron M&S Reading. Copper-red with a light fizz and a moderate off-white head that soon vanishes. Itís rather thin and watery. Up front itís mildly sour with hints of banana. I donít know what hibiscus tastes like; for me it tastes of sweet summer fruits. Yes, definitely cherries and strawberries. After being unimpressed at first, this grew on me. Itís light, yes, but itís interesting and unusual. With a bit more body and a bit more oomph this could be pretty decent.

berkshirejohn (4531) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
33cl bottle from Camberley. A rose pink pour with a fading pinkish head; floral aroma with a touch of strawberry; dry fruity taste, almost chalky; and a drier finish with lingering fruit. A very pleasant and summery Belgian-style fruit beer.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
From Fosse. Rose coloured with a fine white mousse sinking steadily. Cherry drop and wet dough nose with a faint background edge of cider-like acidity. Decent enough Belgian-aping flavour with restrained wheat sourness, red flowers and fruit, a very English cherry stone and dough backdrop. Finally biscuit. Pleasant, well-executed and vaguely unusual.
