Hanoi (620) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Mcr Beer festival. Drunk with heavy cold so caveats on the reviews. Strong lemon grass and lemon, hint of orange, grain, pleasing bitterness in the finish. It felt like an English take on a wheat. Very drinkable session beer, I enjoyed it a lot.

RichTheVillan (4685) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Cask at the Wellington; clear straw yellow pour with a bubbly white head, lemon aroma, taste has grain a hint of spice, zesty citrus, not your archetypal wit.

ManVsBeer (5968) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Cask @ Fox & Goose, Hebden Bridge. Yellow-blonde with a thin head. Has an interesting fusion of wheat beer and IPA styles, with both noticeable. There’s a creamy texture alongside small citrus hop notes. It is certainly not as strong tasting as its content.

jackl (5816) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Cask @ GBBF ’12. Pours deep gold with a small white head. The nose is light honey, some feathery light hoppiness, fresh mint and herbs. The taste is strong honeyed cereal. Herbal heather, light grassy hops. A bit boozy on the long finish. Medium/full body. Flavorful, but a bit too herbal for my liking. Certainly an interesting drink, mind.
