A light colored, refreshing Summer Wheat beer. A distinct aroma of vanilla with an initial burst of sweetness complimented by a subtle banana flavor with a hint of lemon followed by a complex dry finish which says "Get me another".

Beer No 4 on the Wilsons’ Road Trip 2005. Cask at The Old Harkers Arms, Chester. Yellowish blond. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Good body, excellent hoppy finish. Nice one.

StueyD (1160) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2007
A mid golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A light but pleasant floral nose, Earl Grey tea, hoppy with some citrus fruit. A weak mouthfeel, but plenty of floral hop, Earl Grey tea again, some citrus fruit and a hint of biscuity malt. Dry hoppy finish. (Cask - The Ouse Amateur Sailing Club, King’s Lynn, Norfolk).

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Cask at Bree Louise. Very pale golden beer with a creamy white head. Nice bright citrusy aroma. Lemon, orange and tropical fruits. Lightly spicy malty character, quite wheat on the nose. Flavour is light and citrusy with a fresh grassy/spicy hoppiness. The challengers in here are quite expressive with a nice orange peel and soft spiciness that accents the lemony spicy wheat. Very pleasant pint.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2004
I thought this was a pretty good summer ale, with clean hops in the aroma and citric flavours. Good, crisp finish. Not much obvious wheat presence but, overall, I was quite impressed. Cask (handpump), The Society Rooms (JDW), Maidstone, Kent.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Olde Dolphin Inn summer beer festival, Derby. OK. Who stole the wheat? Even subtler than other ’wheats’, this pulls off a great balance and a hefy hop touch to the finish.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2007
Cask handpump (no sparkler) at The White Horse, Harborne, Birmingham. Copper with a decent sized foamy head. Oranges and apples in the scent. Slight fizz in the mouth; sweet at first then very bitter with a dry finish. Slightly watery. Very full of hops with a hint of cereal malts. Spoilt by a metallic/chemical aftertaste which became apparent after a few mouthfulls. Good, simple but refreshing.

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Cask at GBBF Pale gold colour, bit of hay in the aroma. Hops are dominant which increase in flavour as the beer goes on. As we had so many of this style of beer it can become difficult to distinguish but this one I did like and found it very drinkable

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2007
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Pale. Not especially flavoursome straight up but in the mouth there are pleasant leafy piney hops which lead into quite a tangy bitter finish. Pretty good but not really your usual wheat beer.

fonefan (35066) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2007

Aroma is moderate hoppy, flowers, grass, moderate yeasty, orange, notes of cinnamon. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.
