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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!" ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
