3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A missed addition to my 2015 advent calendar, day 22.
Into a tulip, chilled. Sunny gold and shimmering in the lights with fine and intermittent carbonation. Sudsy white foam that fades. Nose just oozes grapefruit, cantaloupe, lychee and lemon concentrate with an underlying sauvignon blanc tang. Quite lively and gripping on the palate. Light in body but plump and very juicy with the fruit esters dominating. The same of the nose comes through and is so well defined but controlled to stave off from becoming cloying. Lengthy fruit swallow after a little bitter edge. This is a great session beer, and could be the best overall wheat ale I have tried. Great stuff!! (33cL, no date stamp, Boozebud)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, a little herby, some hops. The flavour is light bitter with a light tropical fruit citrus palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat light all around. Not sure what the brewer wanted but I donít think this was it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pale with smooth light head. Distinct taste that is very pleasant. Easy to drink especially as I had it (poured from bottle into a chilled glass). Not usually a fan of Prickly Moses but this impressed me.

Brilliant wheat bix have nothing on this wheat brew. It is so satisfying to rock up at a new place for dinner and have the opportunity to get the palate still mutated by such a refreshing taste that is dry and tart with an exciting hop aroma. Great work "Ella" get hopping.

Name might be apt as the Ella hops give a sharp kick on first taste. Still pleasant. Stone fruit follow the nice aroma. 1.3std drinks. 330ml. 5.8%
