COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned, Occasional;
Honey-Spice Wheat Beer 6.4% ABV 660ml Brewed with Golding and Bobek hops, wheat and barley malts, fermented with local honey and conditioned with spices for over 6 months. Honey-Spice Wheat Beer is light and spritzy with a sparkling effervescence. Its spicy-citrus aroma make it great for relaxing on a warm summers day or for enjoying with salads, seafood or white fish. Hand-made in very small quantities the beer is unfiltered and bottle conditioned. If you like it clear, the bottle should be left at least 48 hours before serving and then poured carefully to avoid disturbing the yeast sediment. If you prefer it cloudy then just go for it! Serve the beer in an oversized wine glass or a chunky wheat beer glass at 8-10oC.

Bottle - not entirely sure when of where. I wasnít particularly taken by the weaker cask version and this didnít really rock my boat either. Clean and gold. The honey and spice werenít 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.

Muddy yellow with a lasting white head. Weak fruity aroma with yeasty bubblegum notes. Strong sweet bubblegum flavour, with fruity pear notes

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.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2009
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.

ladnewton (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2009
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.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
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. Itís all a bit weird and ill conceived. Donít know if the sourness is deliberate but itís really not good.

leaparsons (7926) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2009
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.

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.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2008
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.
