JohnRMurdoch (3316) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2012
500ml bottle from Great Grog. Amber brown colour, not much head. Big hoppy aroma. Hoppy grain wheat flavour. Hoppy aftertaste. Fairly typical Kernel plae ale that is a bit flatter & has wheaty grain overtones.

jamestulloch (1443) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Aroma: Yeast, banana, passion fruit and mango - lots of tropical flavours.

Appearance: Cloudy orange body with a small, diminishing white head. Medium carbonation. Very little lacing.

Taste: Sugary sweet peachy flavour with a gentle bitter finish. Subtle orange rind and grapefruit notes. Not as íwheatyí as I was expecting.

Palate: Medium body with a slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation.

Overall: Very different to other wheat beers Iíve tried, but thatís not necessarily a bad thing. This is juicy and tropical - lovely.

The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Worst Kernel Iíve had by a mile. I say worst, but least impressive may be more accurate. Like a pale lager with a banana wheat aftertaste. Hum.

TysonBeerhound (53) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2012
It poured with good carbonation to form a hazy golden hue with a large white head. The aroma was strong citrus hops-lemon, grapefruit etc with a little freshly cut grass for good measure Taste wise, it was medium bodied with plenty of initial bitterness. There are lots of citrus flavours: orange, lemon and grapefruit, but also grass and, once the bitterness subsides, a touch of wheat. The finish is mainly dry with a little sweetness right at the death. This is a strange one. Itís not like any wheat beer Iíve had before. In fact, itís not really a wheat beer at all as it lacks sufficient, erm, wheat to be classed as such. Itís actually more of an American Pale Ale. However, I liked it and, served chilled, it would be quite refreshing.

Very hazy gold - amber beer. Nice pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little soft but with mild fine carbonation. Nice mild creamy malt base, not particularly wheat like. Smooth! Fresh bitterish tangerine - orange, a little pith. Traces of grapefruit and lemon. Finish is soft and dry with lingering bitterness.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
50cl bottle at the brewery. It pours a mostly clear golden colour with a small white head. Short lived foam. Aroma is bitter hops and grass. Taste is moderately bitter with grapefruit, grass and citrus. Light bodied with nice carbonation. Crispy and refreshing. Maybe a bit too boozy when not cold.

harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
50cl bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury, drunk at home. Hazy cloudy pale gold with thick off white head. Aroma of peaches, nectarines and passion fruit. The most tropical fruit aroma of any beer Iíve ever had. Fullish in mouth where some wheat beers can be a bit lax. Some good bitterness. The tropical flavours continue but not quite as much as on aroma, but there is a passionfruit couli not that runs throughout. Bitterness builds on the finish. That really is a rather gorgeous beer. Really good. It had to follow an aged Orval and it worked so damn well. Something a little lacking in the body somewhere, but just a damn lovely beer and I love the fruit.
