DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, - 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.

Bottle at the Kernel Brewery on 25 Aug 2012. Poured a hazy, pale orange colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of tangerines, peppery hop and honey. Wheat in the flavour, with some flowery hop and pineapple. Finish was dry straw, grass and biscuit.

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

zacgillbanks (4545) - 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 (3076) - 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.

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
