COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Piercing bitterness in this ’brite’ English style wheat beer which mellows to reveal fruit overtones amidst a dry as a bone finish. This is a real thirst quencher.

In 2010, the bremaster can no longer get the wheat malt that was used so it is no longer a wheat beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2007
Cask at Peterborough BF ’07. Gold with a small white head. Sweet citric hoppy aroma. Very lemony taste, almost like an old-fashioned cheap fizzy lemonade. Good bitter finish. Yes, it would be thirst quenching after mowing the lawn, but I was several hours into a beer festival and thirsty I was not.

Blackfriers. Pours soo increadibly pale i mean like this looked really watery, but really attractive. Aroma is grassy citrus hints of wheat and honey balancing. Taste was similar a good balance the wheat makes it very drinkable, hints of peach in the finish. Great session ale.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Cask at Spuyten Duyvil, Brookly. Unbelievable nose; perhaps the most flowery beer, pungent with lilac and herby flowers, that I have ever had. I was shouting in the bar my disbelief at the quality of the aroma. And the flavors, while subtle, were still wonderfully fresh and sweet with biscuit qualities. Very slight bitterness to round things out. A truly masterfully made beer and presented very well. Typical cask frothiness of the head and light airiness of the body. I’m in love with this beer!
