2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at The Royal Crown, Witney 10th July 2006 (think it was the Crown it was a Wychwood pub anyway)Should be called Summer Blandness very unimpressive, poured light golden colour not much body, some hops and malts detected served a touch warm which is a bit suprising in one of its own pubs, nothing else of note to say really not bad just bland.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Hoop and Toy, London SW7. Pale golden. The wheat doesn’t add anything good to this ale.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask@The triple Crown, Richmond. This pub normally does a good pint, so i don’t think it had anything to do with condition, i just thought this was an bog standard, crap beer. Very thin, and i’d hardly call it a German Hefe!!!! This was a thin blond ale, with slight sour malts, very thin and extremely bpring, some lemon tang, but not much else.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand pulled at the Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth. Purporting to be brewed with wheat, and flavoured with fruit and honey. Honey coloured actually, and smelling like a bramble bush. Fruity and sweet initially, fairly flat (wheaty?), dropping off into wateriness and eventually a dry malt hop flavour. Good start, less impressive finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned at The Winsford Arms, Wroxall, I.O.Wight. Pale golden yellow, hazy, active head. Surprisingly smooth and silky with a light lemony hop flavour, grapefruit and peach. Lingering delicate flavours on the finish with a fresh cut grass aroma. Pretty decent pint.

bottled: i brought this back from england. didnt drink it for a while. pulled it out and poped it in a pint glass. nice golden yellow with slight haze. white thick head that disipated and left tingly carbonation. some flowery hops in the nose kent golding. and a wheat yeast smell. nice in the palate with hints of wheat , ginger, and honey. with some bittering hops coming through in the finish. nice mod body. easy drinking beer and refreshing. good session beer. maybe even a step above that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Substantial cottage-cheese-like head, massively clinging to the glass as I drank it--fabulous! Significant floral aroma, very gentle bitterness, lingering particularly well. Smooth, silky, slightly oily texture. Well balanced and fine. (on tap, Turf Tavern, Oxford)

Sampled cask conditioned at Cloister, Edinburgh.
Pale amber. Flower hop aroma. Sweet and rather light bodied. Really fruity with "round" mouthfeel and low bitterness. Thirst quenching.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
As far as I’m aware, wheat beers are pretty much an unknown in the UK and this turned up another surprise. Pretty smooth and fullish throughout but finishes with a nice citric bite that lingers well into the aftertaste.
