COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned; Regular Foraged Herb Hefeweisse. A pale and hazy wheat beer with pronounced herbal notes, this beer has hints of clove, citrus, and banana. Conceived as a perfect match to classic roast chicken, Wu Gang will also go nicely with spicy food. Low in alcohol but with plenty of flavour, this one is a perfect thirst-quencher on a summer’s day.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle at the Exmouth Arms, London on 15 February 2014. Poured a cloudy ochre colour with a dense, white head. Spicy aroma with notes of clove, banana essence and yeast. Initial flavours were surprisingly hoppy, with some grassy and citrus zest notes. Finish was dry grain, biscuit and sugary sweetness.

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottled 10/03/14. A pale blonde coloured beer with a quickly disappearing white head. A spicy herbal hefeweizen. Good herbal notes throughout with a good body. Tasty interesting and different. The flavours are distinctive and pleasant. Liked this.

Beersiveknown (2781) - NORTHERN IRELAND - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle from ales by mail. Love the artwork!
hazy burnished gold with fluffy white head collapsing to a mere lacing. Spicey, slightly tart aroma of cloves, black pepper and lemon peel. Medium body and full of flavour for its fairly diminutive strength. Interesting peppery tingle and a woodsy sage like herbal note, slight szechwan like tongue tingle in a dry finish. Its like a grisette saison.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Keg @The Vintage, Leith. Pours golden/yellow, almost no head at all, very light carbonation. Big fruit on the nose, it smells almost like a wine. Quite dry in the palate (again, wine like) some sherbet, not my favourite.

Scottishchris (167) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle from vino broughton. Pale yellow slightly hazy. Little head due to inexpert pour. Nose has loads of coriander, cloves, fresh herbs. Tight bubbles, clean and crisp. More coriander and a bit of banana. Thinning body. Tart and refreshing. Bottle says BB 31.01.14 so might not be too fresh. Very good though.

AdiBeer (926) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Aroma: herbs, sage? Appearance: cloudy light gold, huge white head. Taste: quite sour. Palate: light and crisp, sage again, quite fizzy. Overall: interesting beer, don’t be misled by the label saying ’Hefeweisse’ - that is the minor bit of the experience. Bottle from Oddbins Pimlico, London.

BenH (2198) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden with white head. Aroma of herbs, sage, and standars banana clove. Taste is slightly less herbal, banana and clove again. All a bit thin in texture and flavour. Not a great example of a style that is rarely good anyway

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle. A wonderful label. An interesting beer, but not quite as odd as I was expecting. Cloudy yellow, with a foamy white head. A fair bit of yeast sediment throughout. Wheat, grass, slightly sweet bread. Much like a hefeweisse in taste - more of a spicy/herb flavour up front with a more traditional wheat and banana finish. Nice.
