Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2013
On tap @ Craft beer Co, London. This is a light cloudy honey-colored one with a big really dense and creamy off-white head. It smells like summer rhubarb with a smooth acidity and hints of yeast. Quite nice. It has a average small bubbly carbonation level and a nice slick texture. Bitter at first, almost pungent, some fruity plums mixing in here. Some citrus sourness also. Enjoyable and somewhat refreshing! 21.07.2012

rarbring (1247) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2012
Aroma: Spices, citric aromas and some stable. Very interesting mix.
Appearance: A clouded light amber, an off-white beer with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Sweet white bread, orange peel marmalade, spicy with a coriander note.
Palate: Medium carbonation, soft and oily, a dry finish.
Overall: A very obvious bitterness but an interesting sour, bretty profile.
Note: On-tap at De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2012-10-20.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Keg at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. Rich straw nose. Medium sweet flavor, some alcohol, dirt, bitter grass, toasty hay. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Bit of warmth on the finish, more toasty straw, some sticky grass, grain. Pleasant but nothing special.

flying_pig (898) - SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Draught at The Craft Beer Co. (London):
Strong pine and hops aroma from this one that was almost like an DIPA this was followed with some citrus and wheat aromas along some banana and a strong grapefruit aroma towards the end.
Light orange to amber with a thin, foamy white lacing for a head with some left on the side of the glass.
Very bitter to begin with thanks to the huge hops and pine prescence. This also has some fruity notes and citrus through it along with background wheat, banana and clove & the finish was incredibly bitter and too strong for my liking.
Smooth on the palate with some sweetness and a medium body, the main thing to note was the huge amounts of bitterness throughout that made it a struggle at times and the finish was a dry one.

Not a great beer and not one that I enjoyed. The beer was just far too bitter and I didn’t find it particularly well balanced either, meaning it’s not a beer that I would be interested in trying again.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2012
On tap at Euston Tap. Cloudy golden, creamy head. Fruity nose, potent fruity, appleish and herbal hop flavours. Dry and asking for more.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2012
Keg, Birthday Feathers’ Owl-Drawing Crawl, BrewDog Nottingham...erm, Nottingham, 30/07/12. Had no idea I was drinking a hefeweizen. Clouded Belgian looks draped with lace. Muted, vomit-speckled orange aroma with heady ganja. Great earthy foundations; nut husk overlaid with bitter orange hop; peach, fried potato. Unsubtle but easy. A bit sick-like and floral. Disappoitningly peachy from Summer wine.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2012
On keg at The Bow Bar Beer Festival. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of banana, pine, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with alcohol quite prominent again. Mild carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel. Nice.

Keg at the Craft. ’American Wheat IPA’. Cloudy orange beer, little off white head. Smooth palate with sharp fine carbonation. A little fresh orange is rapidly swamped by bitter orange peel. A streak of lemon in there. A little creamy malt underneath. Not particularly wheat beer like! Finishes smooth. Nice beer - does it’s St Clemens thing very well, but would need more complexity to reach the higher echelons.

Keg at Bow, EIBF 2012. Very hazy murky orange, thin white bubbles. Nice resinous pine and juicy tropical fruits on the nose, orange peel, light toasty wheat. Amazingly resinous, rich and juicy, just a touch of wheat - more like a DIPA than a Hefe. Trademark SWB C-hop bite on the finish. Good.
