Got this at Sainsbury’s and had wanted to try it for a while. Hazy Orange appearance looked a bit off to me but the smell was of citrus grapefruit and hops. Low carbonation made it feel like a cask conditioned ale making it very easy to drink. Tasted like it smelled with a bit of bread in the aftertaste which was a pleasant one. I will get this again, sometime.

Pours a murky orange/brown with very little head. Citric, sour, grassy tang. Vinous characteristics in there. Bit flat and thin in the finish.

A Mes rate. Bottle from the Jerusalem Tavern.
A very cloudy orange brown with a decent white head and plenty of spotty lacing. Aroma is very wheaty with a good hit of dried tobacco along with notes of grapefruit and plenty of good hoppage. Once in the mouth it’s pretty much as the nose but even more wheaty. In all honesty the champagne yeast is only just detectable. But it does lend it a pleasant spritzy feel. Good stuff and well made but it leaves me feeling that there is far too much wheat and not nearly enough of the adorable Amarillo. It feels lovely in the mouth though, there’s no doubt. Overall, very enjoyable but with double the hops it would be excellent.

Small white head. Yellow cloudy body. Strong florist shop aroma with fruity bready notes. Dry bready floral herbal taste with apple notes. Sharpish mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry lemony herbal fruity aftertaste. Really unusual and quite nice. (0.5l bottle from The Jerusalem Tavern, London.)

500 ml bottle@GrOve’s. Murky orangey-yellow body covered by a filmy layer of foam. Aroma of sugary mashed apples. Bready malt flavor, offset by notes of citrus, apple-cider and yeast. Sourish mouthfeel. Light to medium body. Hoppy ending.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 21, 2009
500 ml bottle. Cloudy, slightly pink, orange white colour. Small off-white head. Weak grapefruit aroma. Low carbonation level. Bready flavours, likely from the suspended yeast. Slightly phenolic. Apple juice and grapefruit juice. Quite an odd beer. Drinkable, but way too yeasty and dry. Finishes with a relatively sharp hop bitterness.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle at The Jerusalem Tavern, London. Cloudy golden with a smallish head. Fruity aroma, hints of banana and spices. Banana and spicy flavours with a bitter twist. Tastes like a bitter weizen. An original twist, though the flavours clash somewhat.

cgarvieuk (21884) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2009
bottle at a mates house ... hazy orange yellow ... sweet banana and bubblegum ... again tart citrus and bubblygummy .... bit drying linger... This was so much more a wheat ale, and i struggled to find any amarillo hop and not a very good wheat at that.

Bottled A very pale gold, slightly hazy beer with no head. The amarillos are ther but they are a bit scant. Pineapple and lemon feature with a bit of spice. Hints of unfreshness. Occasional swigs reveal decent citricity but then you’re let down by the lack of flavour profile. Oh I’m waffling.
