COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This refreshing, light wheat beer is brewed with malted wheat and malted barley giving Westbury Wheat a slight tartness. Westbury Wheat is fermented with a traditional Bavarian yeast to impart clove and banana notes. Wheat beer lovers sometimes prefer a lemon wheel served with Westbury Wheat, making it a very refreshing treat. 10°

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2009
On tap at the Ragtime brewpub. Pours gold with lasting bright white head. The aroma is banana, grains and cloves. The taste has the classic clove and banana and a sense of grain flavor found in some wheat brews. It turns watery toward midway leaving fading banana and clove notes whimpering into the aftertaste.

sebletitje (6777) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2009
Tap @ brewpub. pours golden hazy, white head. Aroma of clove, banana with some faint yeast. Flavor, spices; cloves medium carbonation with some wheat elements and yeast. Once again, the body is just too thin and watery. Refreshing but overall weak.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Burnt hair, sulphur and the foulness of infection in the aroma. Cloudy pale yellow with a lazy white head. Light banana, yeast is followed by burnt plastic and more sulphur. Awful. Mouthfeel is thinnish, but close to where it should be.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Daft; Yellow in color, average white head with good lacing, but a clear body. Where’s the haze, this is a wheat isn’t it? Smells of citrus. Bitter in the mouth with citrus flavors. Slightly oily and high in carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 (Draught) Pours a dark golden color with a thick white head. Average tasting for an American Wheat.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2003
One of the last beers sampled at the Southern Brewer's Festival with choices running low. Yellow appearance. Strange banana salt water taffy flavor. Fairly thin mouthfeel but a little slimy. Strange experience but not in a good way. Another American Wheat disaster. I'll learn to leave this style alone one of these days. Average at best.
