Bottle picked up from ’Jacks’, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon 20th November 2013 consumed at home Thursday 28th November 2013 Pours wheaty straw gold coloured with white head. I am picking at Rocquefort cheese so the aroma is rather difficult to pick up. Fresh nose, taste is clean, it’s refreshing, it is lemony, wheaty, this is really nice. Jack told me this was a good beer, he doesn’t drink beer but he is right, it is bloody good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8 Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a very hazy light amber, small white head. Aroma is quite weak but notes of clove get through. Taste however is a nice mix of wheat, clove, hops and lemon. Nice bitter finish. RichTheVillan (8457) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy light amber pour with foamy white head, clove and hop aroma, taste had the essence of a wheat cloves and banana with a hint of spice that’s backed up with some hoppy action, citrus and pine. tommann (4033) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is resin hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a medium bodied weak bitter watery palate and a long bitter finish. The resin tends to dominate this beer.
Re-rated 13 Jan 2013... Much better than the last time. Nice fresh pine needle hop aroma. Lovely fresh hoppy palate.

Very hazy pale gold beer with a tidy white head. Unpleasant sweaty feet nose! Palate is light and minerally crisp. Smooth pale malt. Bitter floral flavours. Lemon and tangerine pith and peel. Finishes pretty bitter and semi dry. Quite astringent but all right.
Bottle:Nose is banana with papaya and mango sorbet on top. Very refreshing and enticing. Taste leads with resin, and finishing with a banana flavour and then more resin, cloves and floral notes. A touch metalic
Mouthfeel a little to carbonated for me. The nose is lovely but the taste is only ordinary. DandyLion (529) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Gravity @ Galtres festival. Cloudy yellow colour. Spicy taste, sour taste. Full mouthfeel. It's interesting.

Taste was not over clovey, more lemon and the finish wasn’t as harsh - smoother more balanced palate
Cask @ Bow Bar 070812 7/2/7/3/14
Golden, light haze, thin white head, some lacing
Aroma of soft floral hops, light fruits, soft pale malts
Taste - Peppery floral aromatic hops, touch of aniseed, some cloves, background of pale fruity malts, does get a bit over clovey after a while, but has a good flavour
Palate - very soft carb. medium body, smooth mouthfeel due to the wheat. Finish - bitter lingering palate with a background of aromatic soft cloves, bitter hoppy finish gets a bit harsh after a while (I had a pint)
Overall - It’s a good tasting quite unusual beer, just a bit over harsh in the finish
On cask at The Bow Bar. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, lemon, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with a lingering banana Hefeweizen finish. Very bitter with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Great!
