Famousdog (4) - - JUN 23, 2011 does not count
This was frankly more like a pale ale to my palate than a wheat beer, and not too distinctive a pale ale at that. In fact, can’t remember much about it!

Diogène (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle sampled at Mondial de la bière 2011 (Montréal). Pale yellow, slightly hazy with a thin white head and great retention. Aroma is flowery and soapy with lemon, pale malt and sugar. Flavor is flowery. with grass, lemon, pale malt, some residual sugar and moderate bitterness. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Refreshing.

Leighton (13605) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Clear yellow pour with a dense, white foam head. Stinging aroma of citric and grassy hops. Light to medium sweet, with sharp citrus, wheat, subtle yeast, weeds and grass bitters. Light in body with average carbonation. Strong grass hops in the finish, mild bread. Very nice beer.

RichardW (1677) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. Very pale and quite refreshing. Taste of heather and nettles, some peach, fresh hops and faint malt. Finish is short and slightly tart.

DruncanVeasey (7445) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2011
Bottle. Brilliant with a slim, well-retained white collar. Highly susprising aroma- a lambic-like streak of tart lemon, cork and cheesy hop with a hint of old dishcloth (Cascade?). Reminds me of Drie Fonteinen more than anything. Flavour also against the grain; resinous hop bite, satsuma, husky malt and a dab of TCP overpowering any suggestion of perfuminess. I expected Welsh Hoey and got a blend of JHB and Drie Fonteinen. Good, but..I dunno, sometimes I’m just in the mood for a Hoey.

rosenbergh (8316) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2011
Cask at the Royal Oak, Oxford, England.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Floral mildly bitter hoppy aroma. Flavour is quite tempting floral and fruity hoppy. Sour lactose and yoghurt too. Tasty brew.

jfb (4541) - Freising, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2011
(cask) clear golden colour with a creamy white head. aroma of tree sap and citrus fruits, slightly bready with a hint of kidney beans. flavour is the same, with a very pronounced hoppiness, citrus fruits, heavy clove and a light peppery spiciness. medium-bodied with soft carbonation and a robust bitter finish.

JohnRMurdoch (3687) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 Cask @ Troon Beer Festival. Complex aroma of cloves & spices. Pale yellow gold colour. Tastes strongly of cloves & coriander. Flat. Doesn’t work for me.

yespr (34581) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2010
From cask at the Rake. Pours clear and golden yellow with a creamy and white head. Aroma is mild peachy fruity. Fruity, peachy and mild citrusy. Bitter and dry hoppy finish.
