AshtonMcCobb (2318) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours hazy golden with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has grapefruit and pine. The taste has just grapefruit really. The palate is medium bodied with a tangy middle and a slightly too bitter finish. Overall, not bad.

shoulderbroken (1881) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear blond colour, small white head that fades quite quickly. Aroma is grassy, citrussy hops. Bit of lemon and orange, wheat lingering in the background somewhere. Little bit twiggy too. Taste is much less forthright. Initial bitterness but soon fades to wheatiness. Maybe a bit of orange in there too. Quite different from other Kernels I have had with regards to taste. There is almost a lingering sweetness at the end, especially after adding the sediment. Quite a strange one but pretty nice. Definitely unlike other wheat ales I know.

Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from City Beverage Company, Old Street. It pours cloudy gold, with medium white head. The nose is orangey citrus, grapefruit, grass, mild wheat and dough. The taste is zesty citrus, grapefruit, soap, straw, grass and light wheat with a dry, citric finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Decent stuff all round.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Tap at the Craft Beer Co - 11/08/12. Cloudy amber/yellow in colour. Orange and grapefruit dominate the nose. Similar citrus fruit in the taste allied to a little grass and the wheat comes through. Medium bodied and fairly low carbonation with a crisp refreshing citrus finish.

TheCametron (1730) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Hazy Orange with a thick White head. Great nose - Orangey Passionfruit hops. Flavour is sweet with more of that Orangey tang. It’s a good Wheat Ale with a good level of hops, a style I like. I’d welcome more of these very hoppy wheat ales on the market.

dantheman278 (1359) - SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at home. Particularly hazy/murky orange amber with a thin soapy white head that fades with good lacing. Biscuit, lemon, grape skins, grapefruit, very mild wheaty flavours, definitely not a hefe. Dry and resinous, lemon, grapefruit, some herbal notes, quite flinty bitterness, soft wheat characteristics. Long lingering grapefruit finish. Soft, creamy carbonation. Doesn’t totally work for me - too bitter for a wheat beer, but doesn’t really have the aromatics to be a very good APA either. It’s sort of stuck between two styles and doesn’t fit into either of them, which is fine, but for some reason with this beer it’s not in a totally good way. It’s well-made, refreshing, not in any way bad, but it just doesn’t work for me. Just ok.
