COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Generally only available bottle conditioned.
Previously brewed at 5.0%.
Pale yellow in color and naturally conditioned in the bottle, the beer may be poured cloudy by gently swirling the last few inches to rouse the natural yeast sediment. Alternatively, clear beer can be decanted carefully leaving the yeast behind. Either way serve cool in a tall glass for a superbly refreshing wheat beer of character and individuality. Only natural ingredients are used including our own supply of exceptionally soft Cornish spring water. Malted wheat produces a beer with a citrus tang which has been delicately flavoured with whole spices and vanilla. The combination of flavors is brought alive by gently sweetening with pure organic maple syrup.
Ingredients: Maris Otter pale malt, whaet malt. Willamette hops. Vanilla pods, cloves, coriander, maple syrup.

From bottle into wheat beer glass. Aroma a little yeasty and wheaty. Taste a bit boring - not sure what yeast this uses but doesn't have characteristics of a german or Belgian wheat beer. Won't seek out again in a hurry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pdubyah (403) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2014
This is 3 months out of itds best before date, but that does not explain the total averageness of this, Bearing in mind that is past Best Before though, this is thin, watery, tasteless and has no redeeming features, and Ill never know if it could be better as Id never risk another. Possibly but probably not the worst beer I had for many moons.

Pale yellow, no head. Has a lovely wheat beer that you associate with the European continent although its taste and flavours are less stated than this.

Somewhat opaque yellow with small white foam head. Aroma has some vanilla flavor. Tastes some wheat, some spices, some banana. Aftertaste is bit dry. (Velp 201312)

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Bottled 06/11/13. A clear (not cloudy) golden beer with a white head. Heavy carbonation. Good Belgy yeast in the nose. Quite simple in the mouth. More like a golden ale but with interesting yeast. No wit character. I do like it though.

berkshirejohn (4567) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2013
50cl bottle from Tescos, Camberley. A clear amber pour, even after swirling the bottle; wheaty aroma with a touch of honey (or maybe maple syrup?); grainy body with some coriander and lemon flavours, and perhaps a hint of vanilla; then a dry finish with some warmth.

A lot better than I was expecting. Cloves come through but just enough to notice. Yellow cloudy and nice cold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fairwater (135) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Even with a swill of the bottle, it aint that cloudy. Sweet, honey aroma. First taste is light banana, faint spices, then lingering vanilla. Slight bite of bitterness. Would be good with a cold custard pudding, trifle, creme brulee, that sort of thing. If Id have known it was this good Id have bought more than the one bottle.
