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.

Quite a sharp, acidic taste. Could have been better had it not been filtered. But I still quite like this style. Would probably taste better in summer, outside a pub with the sun beating down.

DanielBrown (3781) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2003
On tap at the Barton Arms, Aston, Birmingham. I agree with the description given by the rater below me - this is a very dry, very bitter and very hoppy beer, which is nowt like any wheat beer I have drunk. However I disagree about this being a good thing, I found this a very disagreeable drink - far too harsh, I could feel my gums being eroded and my lips being drawn back in a strange facial spasm. Nice colour though.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2003
[Cask conditioned] Very hoppy aroma. Nice bitter flavour with a dry finish. It doesn't taste anything like a normal wheat beer. It doesn't have any of the disgusting yeasty wheat notes. A great surprise.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2003
Cask Conditioned, at the Saint Albans Beer Festival, 2003.
Slightly hazy gold on this night, with fluffy speckled white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma which translates wonderfully through to provide a clear, clean bitter flavour.

imdownthepub (10139) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Plough, Bodicote, Oxon. Pale yellow gold with no head. A middling attempt at a wheat beer, it has a dry malty flavour with bitter hops but little of the smooth vanilla like flavours you would normally find.

RichardGretton (4239) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2003
Lager like wheat beer with a citric hopped aroma and a very hopped flavour with a dry finish. A hopped ale not a wheat beer in my opinion.

pivo (2561) - GERMANY - SEP 6, 2003
GBBF 2003, tap: Amazing stuff, this beer. Thin floral nose of fresh fresh hops. Yello color and a low head. Kinda grassy taste in the middle of the body, spicy end with a long lingering bitterness. A hop head's delight. One of the best beers and the best breweries at the GBBF 2003.

SilkTork (5191) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2005 Aug, 2003. Gravity Cask, Kent Beer Festival. Filtered. Fresh, lively lemon and butter aroma. Pale lemon colour. Soft palate with washed out but tasty grapefruit flavours. Refreshing and satisfying. [3.3]
Aug, 2004. JDW, Rochester. Piss yellow colour. Foamy head like soap bubbles. Wheat beer aroma. Quite sharp and dry. A stinging, earthy bitter finish. Not enjoyable. [2.1]
May, 2005. JDW, Rochester. Pleasant, enjoyable and refreshing. [3.0]

YogiBeera (2470) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2003
GBBF 03 on draft: Total agrement with Ken Fisher who presented us more than one token: Yeast and wheat, golden sunny color, no head, no carb. Slightly bitter, long lasting taste - vanilla and banana - citrusy and also doughy. Great brew and complex - Liked it.

bierkoning (10157) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2003
Cask, White Horse, Parsons Greene, London. Very light colored and a slight head. Fairly thin. Typical witbier flavor on the background, but a firm vanilla hopbitterness on the foreground. Long hoppy aftertaste.
