COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled conditioned only.
"Rebellion White" @ 4.5% is a classic wheat beer, brewed in the style of a Belgian Witbier. Special yeast and 35% wheat malt combine to produce the distinctive spicy, clover aroma and fine, white foam which gives the beer its name. To best appreciate the fully body, aroma and citrus, fruit flavour of this naturally cloudy beer, stir the sediment before servding, well chilled in a wide rimmed glass.

EdKing (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Bottle from Waitrose, Berkhamsted. Colour is cloudy murky amber. Nose is delightful when first poured. Sweet lemon, apple, caramel, clove, yeast and some sweet sugary sherbet. Taste is not as powerful as aroma. Itís caramel, sweet lemon and clove, but not such a zingy citrous kick. Itís more subdued.

The wife is out with friends, so Iím having a random, weird beer tasting evening: first up an English brewed Witbier! This brown 330ml bottle (5%ABV) was best before 10 Mar 2011, drank and reviewed 28 Jan 2011. Poured into my Westmalle chalice. Good looks, pale orange, cloudy and headless after ten seconds, just like a regular Witbier. Strong clove aroma, with a bag of mixed spices thrown in too, impressive smell. Iím not a huge fan of this style, but this tastes and feels as good as the much loved Hoegaaarden in my eyes. It has that coriander/orangey edge to it as well, different and pleasing. A good start to my evening, hope the Armenian Lager is as good!

Bottled. Hazy yellowish orange colour with a small white fluffy head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, mild grass and spices. Flavour is citrus, wheat, some grass, grains and mild herbal notes as well. Long citrus aftertaste.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle from Waitrose. Cloudy straw yellow with a laced white head. True to style spicey flavour and aroma. Tangerine and cloves along with sweet malt and slightly acidic wheat. Pretty decent stab at this type of beer.

Bottle from Waitrose in Reading, well in whatever suburb my brother lives in, which I canít remember, arh yes T something. Tilehurst!! Yes, thatís it. cloudy paleish gold with some orange hints to the colour. Wit spice and tangerine aromas are pleasant. Ok in mouth without being special, but the flavours in the finish resemble those on the aroma and it does finish well. One of the better UK wit beers.

Spicy, yeasty aroma with plenty of clove. Sweet and toasty in the mouth. Spicy. Impressive. A great UK wit.

wheresthepath (1568) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2010
[330ml bottle from Waitrose, Marlow at 5% ABV] Given the smaller bottle size and higher ABV than previous reviews, I wonder if this is a new recipe - I will try to find out. Pours a muddy pale peachy-brown with a negligible head and slight to moderate carbonation. Cloves and ginger in the aroma, and cloves continue into the flavour. Itís pretty heavy on the spices in fact, with plenty of black pepper too. Thereís obvious wheat chaff, along with some unusual woodiness - exotic tree barks and furniture polish maybe. A lemon lurks in the background, and a banana tries to catch your attention as the last few drops slither down your throat. Itís an atypical Belgian white; itís far more complex and interesting than your Hooegaarden clones, but as a result itís less refreshing. I liked it though.

BeerViking (2591) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Pours a dark blond with a lacy white head, nose is peaches, bubblegum and a hint of cloves. Sweetish on the palate but with a drier finish. good chewy malty body with spicy notes and bit of banana.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle at tasting in work. Alround rating: Strange and unplesent vegtable character, lots of almonds, the wheat is raw and not very estery, pale malts. Poor show.

Fin (7556) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle Waitrose, Thame, Oxon, consumed 29-05-08 Golden with some cloudiness, aroma is a little spicy. Tastes of wheat with a dash of spices, its ok but not a great example of a wheat beer.
