2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - not entirely sure when of where. I wasn’t particularly taken by the weaker cask version and this didn’t really rock my boat either. Clean and gold. The honey and spice weren’t really prominent enough to generate much interest or provide a counterpoint to the additional alcohol. So-so.

29th August 2008. Clear amber beer. Feels more lagerish than a wheat beer. Rich in flavour with honey and possibly ginger. Lagerish finish. No bitterness. Refreshing.

Cask. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity hops, honey, wheat as weill as mild caramel malty notes. Flavour is honey, caramel, wood, some balancing hops. Nice and refreshing, even though quite different wheat beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned, 330ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Clear Gold with slight white head. There are a lot more of these British wheat ales coming through and this is one of the better examples. Deeply honeyed and full with a lingering sharp citrus note. Really quite enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask via handpump at the Wenlock, on 21st June 2009. Naturally hazy yellowish wheatbeer with a white head. Initial aromas are of honey, pepper and cinnamon before a pleasant surprise of hops kick in. Then a well-crafted harmony of all four notes are carried on a zingy mouthfeel followed by a long, pleasant finish of spice and hop. There is a lot happening in this beer, and it is in all honesty the best Sharps beer I have ever drunk.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled A headless orange coloured beer. The aroma is sweet and full of honey with an odd sourness which is not a happy marriage. There are some sweet Belgian honey beer type notes together with some spices. It’s all a bit weird and ill conceived. Don’t know if the sourness is deliberate but it’s really not good.

Cask, Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth. Golden with a small head. Aromas are wheat malts with caramel. Light spiced oranges with cream. Quite clean. Flavours are sweet wheat and cream with mellow lemon. Soft spices with grapefruit towards the finish. Nice hoppy finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smell of alcohol is very noticable. Dark honey colour with a thin to non existant head Taste of honey is overpowered by the taste of alcohol.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dull orange haze, slick of white. Quite a juicy aroma of jammy Goldings, musty green, mouldering apple , orange peel, probably coriander. Earthy bitter orange, grapefruit IBUs, yeast like Fullers. Vague dusty spice and peely tang. Malt not there. Fairly unpleasant clinging paracetemol bitterness. As usual the honey contributes nothing. Pretty empty for a beer "fermented with local honey and conditioned with spices for over 6 months". Tangy but pointless.
