Theydon_Bois (9912) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Tap at Opa Opa, Southampton, 20/05/13. Hazed golden orange with a good sized white head. Nose is citrus zest, wheat, light grain. Taste comprises cereals, lemon, grain, grass, light spice, hint of banana. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp in the finish. Ok wheat, refreshing enough I guess.

On tap at Southampton restaurant. Tasted as part of a sampler. Yet another OK brew but nothing spectacular. Liked this one the least of all the samples.

Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head. I don’t get why they put a lemon in it either. Not much on the nose. A tad fruity on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid for style.

tap at Brewpub - Don’t know bartenders insist on serving craft beer with lemons.. this isn’t corona! Light spice wheat and nice yeast. Dry finish. Tasty but not unique.

Wheaty, pretzel-like though light aroma. Golden color with a hint of haze and white head. Moderate fruit sweetness on a super-light wheat beer.

on tap at the brewpub, pours pale gold with a medium white head. Aroma is strong wheat and citrus. Flavor is thin and watery wheat and little else.

Draught @ Brewpub: Served with a lemon wedge. This one poured a cloudy, golden color. There was a small white head on it that left some lacing. Lighter, but nice aroma. Mainly wheat and citrus notes. This had a very smooth and mellow flavor to it. Wheat and citrus flavors. Maybe a hint of spices. Nice and drinkable.

MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Crisp wheat and juicy citrus fruit lay on the tongue long after the sip has been taken. Light-bodied but never soporific, this American Wheat Ale is an efficient quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the cloudy blond.
-The very low hopping leaves a watery void in the finish; strangely, this doesn’t detract from the enjoyment of the glass too much as there are enough flavors to interest you.
-Mine was thankfully not served with a lemon.
-For such a usually forgettable style, this one was quite the success.

On tap at the brewpub.

This is a lighter than normal wheat beer. It pours hazy yellow with notes of tree fruits. There is a bit oif the spice and wheat on the finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Drinkable, but not my type of wheat, sour. Yellow with lace. Some creaminess and lemon. Me mate liked it.
