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.

olio (8469) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 4, 2015
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Some herbal notes and carbonation ash notes on the nose, apricot and some mushrooms as well. Sweetish apricot and lemon on the flavor, way too carbonated, some spice and herbal notes with hops. I’m not sure what this is supposed to be but a German Hefeweizen it is not. A strongly carbonated spiced up Witbier at best. Not very pleasant.

Mr_Pink_152 (2724) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Deep golden straw colour with white head. Aroma certainly that I’d a herb garden, with wheat and pine. The taste is moderately sweet.

edsspoon (826) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle - golden with a scarce white head which soon disappears. Aroma of elderflower, fresh mint and basil with a little sourness. Taste is light sourness, straw, apple and pears followed by a light roasty and lemon finish. Light body, high carbonation. A tasty treat but a little bit watery.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colour without a head. Large bubbles. Aroma of bun dough, some citrus and herbs. Flavour of bun dough yeastiness, orange peel, herbal bitterness, mild spiciness and some honey sweetness. Some weird ginger notes too. Light bodied and high carbonation. Reminds me of a traditional Finnish mead. Just add some raisins.

teorn88 (5142) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Backlog rating. Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. It pours a hazy light straw color with a medium white soapy white head. Aroma is grassy and herbal with citrus and banana notes. Taste is medium bitter with light grains, more grassy hops and an interesting herbal profile alongside orange peel. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this one quite a lot.

McNeillR (2024) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2014
First half pour was suprisingly clearish golden, but levelled out with a sternly opaque second pour. No real head to speak of. Big chalky wheat, studded grassy nose - limestone and herb rubbed banana skin. Initial taste is shaved lemon, peppery rocket and brassy clove. Falls away quickly in taste, but firm carbonation throughout and a little clean tart strum. Finish is coppery wheat, just a wee bit wide of the mark for me - very involved for the low ABV but slips away cleanly on dewy herb linger.
