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.

Miksu (4947) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2006
Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London. Bright golden color with creamy head. The aroma is grainy with wood, vanilla and spices. Creamy and soft palate. Quite bitter flavor with wheaty, woody and fruity notes. Finishes fruity-bitter with peppery spiceness. Refreshing, but still very tasty. Very good balace between fruit, bitterness, wood and wheat.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2006
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London 21 Apr 2006) Golden yellow colour, no head. Fruity nose dominated by citrus (mainly lemon) and some wheat. Fruity taste as well, with lots of lemon, starting a bit sweet but with a dry finish. Rather light body, but nice balance where the fruity hops tend to overshadow the malt and wheat. There’s something artificial over it however.

StueyD (1144) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2006
A hazy, pale yellow coloured wheat beer with a weak white head. A distinct cereal aroma with wheat and hops and some malt. The taste is dry and bitter. Wheat, hops and malt make up the flavour. The finish is very dry. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk)

larsam (127) - Southampton, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2005
Clear pale yellow with smallish white head which leaves lacings. Soft fruity wheat aroma. Flavour is round with wheat and a surprising (for wheat beer) bitterness. Small-medium body, well balanced. Finishes with citrus bittreness. Very interesting wheat beer!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2005
Floral, lavender, soapy hops over clean fresh malt base. Clear golden blonde with dense and lasting white head that coats the glass. Floral, perfumey, earthy hops with fair bitterness and clean fresh malt character. Medium-light body with fair carbonation. Cask at GBBF 2005.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 29, 2005
Pint pulled at The Black Lion in Butterton (the Peak District), a clear amber with a medium-sized thick head. A strong wheat aroma - with orange and banana notes. No strong flavourings, though quite bitter for a wheat beer.

harrisoni (13598) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Cask at Oakham Brewery Tap, Peterborough. This is almost as good as it gets. I have known a 9 of this disappear in a smallish pub in 6 hours. Wonderfully drinkable with all of the normal Oakhams bits (golden hoppy citrus zesty) but with a roundedness from the addition of malted wheat. Fabulous. Re-rate Planet Thanet Beer Festival 2007. I had this 4 times, first and last beer of each day and it was faultless, the citrus aroma, the body that is fuller due to the addition of wheat and this grapefruit/tangerine finish that lasts and lasts.

Sigmund (5024) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2005
Cask conditioned at the 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, gravity dispense. Pale golden colour. Lovely citrussy sweet aroma, hints of honey. Some natural carbonation, zesty. Some wheat character. A nice hoppy bitterness throughout. Another great session beer from Oakham.
