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.

50cl bottle from Tesco’s, 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.

Bottle from the brewery. Even with a swill of the bottle, it ain’t 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 I’d have known it was this good I’d have bought more than the one bottle.

Opened with a good pfffft and poured with a voluminous fluffy white head that began to lessen, leaving a cobweb of lace on the sides of the glass. The initial offering was clear and yellow-gold with plentiful carbonation. The aroma was distinctly of cloves and banana-like esters. Smells like classic Belgian witte. Upon drinking it shows a huge surge of bubbles and then the clove and coriander comes through with mellow dehydrated banana. It is soft and zingy at once and then the vanilla is a subtle addition to the palate.
As I got further down the bottle I kept swirling the beer expecting a flood of yeast to add additional flavour to the glass, but it didn’t come until the last inch and a half of the beer. Did it have a marked effect? It gave plenty of sediment and more banana and fruity esters.
Over a broader assessment, it had all the elements of a Belgian Witte and plenty of charm.

From the wonderful little Cornish brewery comes some wonderfully brave tasting beers. As you'd expect from the name it's a cloudy, yellow drink but you may be surprised by the taste - like a good German Weiss beer you get a sense of fruit (banana) and a good tangy finish. As the Cornish would say "ideal!"
