Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. I prefer this to the bottled version. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Nice aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with some barley in there. Williams house yeast aroma and flavour. Flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and mango, some sweetness and barley. Foamy mouth-feel. Didn’t find this as sweet as the bottled version.

Cask, 4.3% at 16. Berliner Bierfestival. Elderflower and peach aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Small frothy white head. Good fruity flavour, refreshing, but not too sweet. Clean bitter finish.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2009
Cask @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours hazy pale yellow-golden with a small, nice, creamy, white head. Lovely lacings. Lovely aroma, flowers, vanilla, hops, crisp malts and a bit of lavender. Low carbonation, light fat mouthfeel. Flavour has green tea, lavender, elderflowers on top of sweet doughy malts. Pleasant hoppy dry finish. Nice.

ladnewton (1400) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 16th October 2012. Amber. Dying head vanishes. Fruity, slightly cheesy aroma. Vanilla and floral hops in-mouth, with some grass. Finish is floral, grassy and herby. Light mouthfeel and a fair amount of body for the strength.

nulptr (114) - SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2013
cask at Hating Room, I mean Waiting Room. wife like this in the bottle but I don’t recall ever having it on cask... very nice however. no head to speak of, delicate aroma, taste a combination of floral, citrus, elderflower? plus lightly bitter finish. very sessionable. superior to the bottled version IMO.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 26, 2011
Cask @ Old Mill, Brodie (beer fest). Straw coloured ale with white head. Aroma - distinctive lemon, citrus hops, floral notes (from elderflower). Taste - lemony, slight grape notes, citrus hops, aromatic flowers. Short, slight bitter finish with lemon. A nice refreshing beer, but the floral notes were a bit strong. Caingorm Trade WInds is brewed with elderflower, but the floral component tastes quite different to me, blending more harmoniously in the taste profile.
