3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!"

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold, with a small white top. Nose is caramel, vanilla and confectionery bananas. In the mouth, there’s a spicy clove taste with grassy coriander and a lot of that banana is lost somewhat. Wheaty overtones, biscuity undertones. Finish is coriander bitterness. Not really my cup of tea, but I can appreciate it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden yellow colour. Far too clear to be a real wheat beer. Aroma is prodomintly banana, a little clove spice, touch of caramel and vanilla. Taste has some biscuity malt and the banana and clove notes. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange gold with a thin white fizzy head. Smells of malt, hop and corriander and light grass. Medium crispy thin body with some fizzy carbonatiin. Tastes of sweet malt with some vanilla, and a strong corriander hop bitter finish. Very smooth and easy to drink.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours almost clear brown orange, thin head, micro CO2. A very inviting bright nose of coriander, cloves, honey, and chamomile. Tastes of cloying malts up front orange, coriander, creamy vanilla (mild), clover honey, and chamomile. I don’t really like the watery-thin body up front but the flavour kicks in the mids and ends mildly dry bitter. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, okay carry, quite good drinkability.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with enthusiasm; well conditioned and highly effervescent. Hazy, dull, medium gold with a dense, towering white head that holds and leaves a messy lace. The label description lends itself to the aroma; soft coriander, vanilla bean, lemon peel, vine clippings, wheat malt and subtle yeasty phenols. Bigger than expected body; creamy but firm in mouthfeel initially. Quite tangy with a good base of palest wheat amongst some lemony citrus, coriander and ill-received vanilla. Falls a little flat as it warms up and the finish becomes frothy and wishy washy in feel yet there is a good linger of tart citrus and sour malt, light phenols and coriander. Light plastic note shows in the aftertaste too, but not too alarming. Drabby and dull as it warmed so one for the well chilled department. ’OK’ drinking but still a strange choice for a West country brewer. (50cL, BB 01/06/12, Margaret River Resort Bottleshop)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Black Door, Helsinki)
Mostly clove aroma, some vanilla, touch of orange. Soft smooth palate, but pleasant carbonation stops it being sticky. Nice wheaty body, a little sweet, and again fairly obvious cloves, though they subside after you’ve had half a glass!. Finish is nicely tingly with hops, and probably clove. It’s quite nice - an experiment that was worth doing.
