Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
Tasted as O’Hanlon’s Double Champion Wheat Beer in order to show off its two medals, golden ale with wheat malt and creamy, dense, yellowish white head over a warm peach blonde colour, hazy with nice sparkling. Sweet and wheaty aroma with earthy, peppery hops, nutmeg, pumpkin, mango, cheese, pine resin, soap, chamomille. Fresh, vividly fruity onset with medium strong carbonation, dry background, bit grainy with sourish wheat malt, hoppy finish, resinous, spicy, honeyish and long. Very elegant, delicate and thirst-quenching ale, I enjoyed this a lot.

Pours a cloudy golden amber with a small white head. Aroma and taste of sweet banana mild fruity notes upfront mellows out to wheat, biscuit malt, yeast as it warms up with some moderate amount of mild peppery hops for balance. A light to medium body, with soft carbonation. The flavor became more prevalent as it warmed up. Overall not the best wheat ale but still goes down quite easy, a good brew.

Bouteille 500ml sous le nom "O’Hanlon’s Wheat Beer". De couleur dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes) aux notes épicées (coriandre), moyen de blé et de céréales avec des notes de houblon floral et herbeux. Rondeur moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées aux petites notes acides (agrumes, surtout citron, très légères notes de pêches) et légèrement épicées (coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un moyen-léger goût de blé avec des traces de malt pâle du genre mielleux puis en finale, une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux petites notes florales vient se rajouter. Post-goût court-moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes).

deyholla (10221) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Cask at Holborn Whippet with Sarah. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of bread and hay with just a hint of sweetness. Flavor has mainly notes of bread and grain with some hay coming out towards the finish.

BlackHaddock (6404) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 4th June 2008, drank November 2007. Poured into a Franziskaner Weisssbier glass. Huge white head, even though I poured it as slow and careful as I could (didn’t wet the glass), not all the beer got into the glass during the pour. The body was pale golden yellow, clear on the first pour with loads of bubbles rising up through the body and at speed. The beer had a slight mistiness in the second pour, not as crystal clear, the aroma and taste didn’t alter. The aroma was of grapefruit and lemons, citrus notes anyway, but not overly strong or powerful. The taste is bitter hops and some malts, maybe citrus fruits too, lemons again like the smell. The mouthfeel is dry and the lemon flavours come through stronger during the aftertaste. A summer drink for sure, I’ll have another but on a sunny day.

tombyars (1615) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Tasted this at the James Watt, Greenock (JDW) in August 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Bright sparkling gold in colour with a thin white head. Hint of fresh pineapple in the short fruity aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts deliver a light digestive biscuit base with juicy lime and gooseberry fruit much in evidence. Strong aromatic hop resins give a dry dusty flavour to the long aftertaste which compliments the sweet malt well. Finish is dry with pithy citrus notes present in the mouth. A decent session Golden Ale.
