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 summerís day.

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.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a cloudy yellow beer with lemon and vanilla flavours, a spicy zesty citrus body and a light floral spicy finish.

minutemat (883) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
330ml bottle from Borough Wines. Very interesting taste indeed, and aroma actually. Hard to place what it is. Fresh herbs, coriander, mint, rosehip, flora, nettle, pot pourri... ok, but not sure Iíd go for another.

Pours a cloudy straw colour with a white head and fine visible carbonation. Light body, thin. Aroma is yeast, grassy, herby... Some pepper, herbs, grass, nettles, slight sugary candy. Nice.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2013
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

330ml bottle from Sourced, St. Pancras. Pours a hazy amber with decent white head. Aromas are clove, mint, herbal tea. Taste is surprisingly dry and bitter. A bit thin on the palate, but interesting. Mine was 3.8%

Cloudy gold beer, big white head. Palate is light and crisp. Sharp minerals. Fresh herbs go well with minerally crispness. Trace of sweet citrus. Interesting beer. This has been improved upon from a recent tap taste at the Cock Tavern. Cleaner and with a touch of mint. Overall a decent herb beer.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Flat ginger beer fading to Indian chutney and spritzy, stale lilt. Interesting if not exactly knock out.

Garrold (733) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Keg at Leeds International Beer Festival. 4.0%. Cloudy straw colour. One of the brewers invited me to guess the herb in this. The nearest I got was fennel. (Well, thats what the missus thought). He then went on to say he wanted this to taste a bit like a red sauce. I thought, oh yeah, it does too. Slightly spicy, fruity. Good job. Except later his colleague said to me, "Bread sauce, not red sauce!". Iím not really cut out for this tasting lark...
