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.

Pours a brown with pretty much no head. Aroma is banana, cloves, yeast and caramel. Taste is a bit bland, slightly sweet and slightly bitter but overall rather watery and certainly nothing to write home about. Overall this isnít anything special, below average.

SarkyNorthener (3970) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle from tesco, lichfield. Clear golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of coriander and bubblegum. Taste is bubblegum, light spice and coriander. Not like any other Belgian Wit I have tried before, its clear. Dull.

Bottle @St. Austell Brewery Taproom. 11-08-2014.
A wheat beer with nice vanila, coriander and vanilla aromas. Light body, average to high carbonation, some crispy texture. Enjoyable.

JonnyConga (121) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
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 (622) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2014
This is 3 months out of itíds 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 Iíll never know if it could be better as Iíd 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.
