3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25th January 2013
At the brewpub. Hazy gold - amber beer. Strange lack of any head considering the palate is minerally crisp. Sweet dried fruits - tangy orange Mild floral nuttyness underneath. Minerally sharpness. Medium mellow bubblegum. All comes together quite well - it the crispy freshness that does it for me. Finishes with tangy sweet orange, floral malt and moderate bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Tap East, London. Pours cloudy, orange-gold with a faint, white foam head. Sweet wheat nose. Medium sweet flavor with sugary wheat, light bitter orange, doughy malts. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Sweet finish with light dry straw, sturdy wheat character, mild soapy notes. So so overall. Not perfectly executed, but OK in general.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg @ Tap East. Apparently this is a collaboration with Sharps Brewery. The pour’s a deep hazy orange color with a tiny white head that quickly fades. The nose is fairly faint banana, peach, orchard fruits. Light sweetness with a touch of mint and herbs. The taste is light mint fruit salad. Strong banana, some general esters. Lemon peel citrus on the finish. Moderate hope presence, certainly more than your typical hefeweizen. The palate’s a bit dull, soft. Overall, an interesting experience, though I didn’t love this...
