Bottled, thanks marbles! Cloudy pale orange. Estery, orangey nose. Sweet and soft with notes of peach and fraspberry, Mild and true to style, but with it’s own twist. Good stuff.

Leighton (11023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2010
Bottle pour. A little lackluster from at the start. Pours a light gold with only mild haziness. Barely any head. Nice clove, wheat and yeast aroma, which gives way to a pleasant, fruity flavor. Light bread hints and some sweet and tangy characteristics. Nice, medium bodied and well carbonated. This hefe builds to a decent finish, but nowhere near what I would like to experience.
