   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
TysonBeerhound (52) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, - 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. It’s not like any wheat beer I’ve had before. In fact, it’s not really a wheat beer at all as it lacks sufficient, erm, wheat to be classed as such. It’s actually more of an American Pale Ale. However, I liked it and, served chilled, it would be quite refreshing.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow. Fruitiness hits you with a venom. Medium body and a winner.

zacgillbanks (1860) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a cloudy yellow coloured beer with spicy orange and grapefruit flavours, a creamy mouthfeel and bitter pine on the finish. A great tasting IPA rather than the wheat beer I was expecting.

Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2012
(Bottle) Pours cloudy pale orange with an off-white head. The aroma holds citrus (lime, lemon, orange and grapefruit), spicy wood, pine, earth, subtle ripe tropical/yellow fruits, ripe red berries/strawberry jam and grass/herbs. Bread and a whisper of caramel. The flavor is fairly dry, medium to heavily bitter and tlight acidic with notes of tropical fruits, citrus, red berries, bitter grass/herbs, pine, resin, spices, wood, earth, bread and light crackers. The mouthfeel is watery and light astringent with a light carbonation. Hoppy, lingering bitter finish with a light fruity touch. Light bodied.

_angst_ (2370) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2012
500 ml bottle bought @ beermerchants.com. Pours hazy golden with a small frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is hoppy and tiny fruity with crackers, passion fruit, pineapple, papaya, dry soil, grapefruit juice, cloves, hay, white pepper, lemon balm, lemon zest, allspice, wild strawberries, hints of lemon juice and very subtle hints of manure. Taste is bitter, tiny herbal and tiny fruity with crackers, gooseberries, grapefruit juice, dry soil, lemon peal, unripe pineapple, red currants, white pepper, dry soil, lemon balm, parsley, strawberries, dry wood, freshly cut grass and hints of green grapes. Mouthfeel is crisp, watery, tiny astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, lemon balm, grapefruit rinds, dry wood, unripe gooseberries, unripe strawberries and hints of white pepper. Very refreshing.

DanielBrown (3627) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours orange, with a smidge of sediment allowed in. Smells sweetly lemony. Mouthfeel is light and tasty, with nice, initial St Clements feel. Finish though is aggressively bitter, in a rather astringent fashion, which knocks the experience down a couple of notches. Still good, but you have to fight through the finish. Addendum: by the end of the glass I’ve been filled with live. 2 marks added.

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 6, 2012
The head is ok. It smells citrus-hoppy. The taste is hoppy, a bit yeasty, full bodied. The taste is more Pale Ale then Wheat. Interesting and nice. 11/10/9/10/-/10

tommann (2488) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a bubbly, medium head. Aroma is lemon and lime jelly with some grainy undertones. Taste has lime to start with a grainy, hoppy lime finish. Good stuff.

RichTheVillan (2125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wine: pours cloudy like a wheat beer but the medicinal taste you get with a wheat beer is not overpowering, it has mostly a hop taste really good though.
