On tap in The Wharf, Macclesfield. Slightly hazy pale gold with a thick solid and tight (whatever that means) white head. Aroma is good, banana, orange, grapefruit, cloves. Flavour is a little dry, strawberry jam, light juicy hops, light bitterness. More varied and good work from Redwillow.

Sampled on Keg and Cask at Birmingham Beer Bash (and aftershow party). Lovely creamy wheaty body. Lovely tart/alc wit/weisse flavour, with the hop tang I expect from a hopfenweisse. Very excellent UK wheat (in style of a German).

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
330ml from Beer Gonzo. Copper-amber with a loose bubbled white foam sinking fast. Aroma of beeswax, tinned peach, orange squash, Smarties and raw red chilli. Warm flavour with TCP, vegetal, wholemeal and orange liqueur notes. Neither hoppy or weizen-like. Hints of acrid butter. Has a gravity-dispensed, boozy, end of festival feel about it. Wanted it to work but it doesn’t.

Keg at BBB. I’m not sure that’ll work Thomas, you’ve not mentioned anything of importance. Aroma - nice enough, aley Appearance - a colourful swirl in the mind Taste - pretty much like a wheat ale should, similar to 1 & 2 but also different Palate - pretty wet in the mouth See Thomas, it really isn’t tricky...

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Keg at BBB. Holy 7% Batman! Really, some easter bunnies and a little rabbit. Is a bunny a little rabbit? Dunno. Anyway - eesters? Dunno. Maybe. Witless range complete for now, pretty good it is too. That eester flavour from wheat comes through with some light amber pour.

Keg at Birmingham Beer Bash (actually a glass; I thought having the full keg would be greedy). Classic weisse looks - cloudy amber body mit ein gross kopf. Floral, fruity aroma but there’s hops in there too. Strong alcohol mixed with banana and bitterness. Bigger and bolder than a Bavarian weisse, therefore heavier and less easy to drink. Big bitter aftertaste. Nice but just the one for me.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Gravity cask at the Tap East Open Brewhouse Festival - Stratford, London. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, white cream head. Big doughy wheat aroma, some melon. Light to medium sweet flavor with rindy citrus and more wheat bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light bitter hay finish, some juicy citrus and sticky wheat bread dough. Alright.

Borresteijn (4927) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2013
33cl Bottle, thanks Harmen! Hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of banana and butterscotch, yeast, light wheaty, some grassy hops. Flavour is also banana, light butter, yeast, firm hoppy grassy and light pine bitter finish that lingers a bit. Light to medium-bodied. OK stuff.

Tap East Open Brewhouse Fest. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer, decent white head. Light dry palate. Quite soft. Light bubblegum ester. Floral note. Sweetish generic fruits turning in to berry fruits. Light dry finish which introduces a little dryness. It all comes together quite well. A sweet tasty beer.

Gravity @ Tap East Festival. Hazy gold pour with a small head. The nose is herb garden. Earthy, dirty compost. Some marshmallow sweetness. Hints of citric keylime pie. The taste is more sweet/tangy keylime pie, lemon rind. Some cake batter. A bit of wheaty funk. Slightly cheesy on the palate. Light, nimble body. Fine carbonation. Overall, pretty good.
