3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tescos (Finest French Wheat Beer. 750ml, in a shaker style glass. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a light foamy head. Aroma is sweet with citrus fruit. Flavour starts off nicely sweet malty but is soon overwhelmed by an odd sweet and fruit (lemon) combination, with some light wheat. Odd spice in the finish and some cheesyness that reminds me slightly of the flavours I got out of Schultheiss Berliner Weisse. The flavours aren’t perhaps working that well together, but it’s still fairly pleasent and very easy to drink. Not the ’finest’ witbier out there, but quite nice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, from Tesco (called Finest French Wheat Beer). Hazy lemon gold, poor shortlived fizzle of white foam, soft condition. Forced candy sweetness and lemon citrus in the nose, clumsy mix of low lemon, butterscotch and corriander in the mouth none of which seem in harmony with the other flavours. Gets a little too sweet before developing a chalky dryness in the finish with a lingering spicy corriander note. Messy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque yellow. Fruity (peach, blueberry) aroma. Pineapple and a hint of pale malt in the palate. Then it gets bland and crisp.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottled, 0.25l) Opaque light yellow color with small head. Very strong aroma with perfume / eau de toilette, lemon and grapefruit. Very much like the Finnish mead, spiced with raisins and lemon! Very citrusy flavor with yeast and aromatic hops. Light-bodied, medium-carbonated palate. It’s hard to rate this beer, as all I could think of drinking this was home-made mead (that many Finns brew for the labour day).

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wonderful fruity aroma. Sweet with notes of apricot, orange peel, and light hops. Cloudy light butterscotch with frothy white lacing head. Medium body with light-medium carbonation. Starts a little sweet, but mostly a steady hop character with hints of fruit. Finish is light acidic and with some bitterness, chalky. After is mild bitter, hoppy, papery with some citrus. Refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale hazy ellow with a slight foamy white head. Aroma is of cheese on a summer saled. Rollercoaster of unidentifiable flavours including a lemony citrus, lots of yeast and something very wierd. Bizarre beer, and I am perhaps being a bit more generous than the others who tried this sample will be. Mondial 4T (Capflu).

Cloudy pale orange appearance with a decent white head. Pleasant light wheaty hop aroma. Slightly watery taste with a yeasty wheat back bone. A decent but simple beer. Pleasant.
