RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2009
330ml bottle, Asda, Carlisle. Having let this stand until fully settled, I then decided to let some of the sediment into the glass. Pale orangey-brown, with a clean white head. Pleasant fresh aroma of cloves and citrus and refreshing on the palate. Nothing stunning, but enjoyable and nice to see an English witbier, from a good brewery.

jgb9348 (5465) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Hazy golden coloured body with a light white head and a nice amount of bubbles coming from the bottom. Mild aroma of bananas, wheat and yeast - a touch of hops thrown in too. Medium-bodied; Strong astringent effervescence and a nice wheatie and yeastie flavour coupled with some banana and clove tastes too. Aftertaste shows too much alcohol and a decent amount of wheat. Overall, a decent beer - not an amazing beer, but worth trying! I sampled this beer on draught I sampled this beer on draught at The Market Porter in Borough, London, England on 13-December-2008.

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2009
330ml bottle from asda, poured fairly cloudy, white head which wanted to last...some citrus on the nose but a slightly sour taste on the palate which led onto a chewy wheaty flavour...not much of a finish...not anything special

haddon90 (1603) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Interesting seeing this in London. Poured a cloudy yellow with a white head. Citrusy aroma, with malt and wheat. Light for being a hef, but not bad. Wheaty taste with a sense of citrus in the background. Not bad.

Geiserich (4047) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottled: Intensive apple aroma. Hints of cider. Light yellow, hazy color. Flavor is sourly with citrus and apple/cidre notes. Light dry, few hoppy end. Interesting apple notes, refreshing, sourly. A bit too sourly.

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2008
Light orange / golden body with a fairly decent head. Soft cloves in the aroma that comes a little more dominant in the taste, a little banana and good carbonation. Decent and probably like it better than the grand cru.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Bottles. Golden haze streaming with fizz and swirling bits. Fine authentic snout with bags of peppery spice, wood, banana esters, lemon curd. Opens with an alarming TCP note softening into candy cigarettes, watery banana, light wheaty sourness. Definitely a bum note of antiseptic. Unconvincing. (Re-rate, on top of a Weihenstephaner) Good peppery banana nasal overlaps. Asti-like spritz and delicate wood. Apple, white grape and antiseptic again. Watery finish, flimsy body, deranged carbonation. Feels more like a champagne yeast has been used than a Bavarian. Needs some tweaking, but almost pretty good.

dj (558) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle, 330ml. A hazy golden colour with a good head. Aroma of yeasty bread dough, with some hints of lime. Taste has malt with a little wheat, dough and citrus. Highly carbonated. More reminiscent of a lager than a hefeweizen.

caesar (6367) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Tap @ Market Poter. Definitely not a german hefeweizen, more like a Hoegaerdse Das. Quite spicy, caramel. Slight fruity, slight banana.

Very pretty little bottle. highly carbonated. far too much sediment even for a wheat beer. spicy clove and not much else. Not hops at all. Very bland.
