Bottle from the brewery. A tough cookie, at the start it was actually quite fine. The carbonation was soft but there, and it tasted like a kristallweizen with the distinct Harveys taste. But now I am almost at the end of the pint, all the goodness has gone and it tastes like a cheap lager. Meh. EdKing (2640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2017
Bottle from the brewery shop. Clear copper brown beer with a medium white foam head. Nose is rhubarb, fruity, toasted grains, light spice. Taste is nutty, rhubarb, toasted grains, biscuit malt, light spice, dryish hop, earthiness. One of the better bottle versions from Harveys. malushky (150) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours clear dark golden with small fine head. Sweet aroma of dough and caramel with a hint of banana. Taste starts sweet and a bit wheaty, after that caramel kicks in and the finish is slightly bitter. No sourness at all. Easy to drink, medium body, enjoyable but nothing special. Erzengel (9364) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle from the brewery shop in Lewes. Smooth grainy beginning. Nice malty ale aromatic, smooth grainy, crisp with an easy drinking body. Not too long in the aftertaste, round and fresh. Malt, round and nice ale characteristic. Long mild malty aftertaste, grain, smooth, nice! Davedavid (6) - Lewes, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2016 does not count
Stunning, dry, complex, enjoyable, fresh, pure, my tipple of choice for many years now- superb beers

Clear darkish orange. Not so fresh malty aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, malty, maybe slight wheat in the background. AshtonMcCobb (6871) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Harvey’s online.
Appearance - amber with a decent fluffy head.
Nose - very delicate banana. More malt than expected.
Taste - more of the same.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy yet creamy texture and a fairly dry finish.
Overall - solid if not true to the style. allmyvinyl (10933) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle at AshtonMcCobb’s. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aromas of light banana, malt. Taste is sweet, bready, banana. Missing some spice notes. Sweet finish. Stuu666 (14596) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle at ash’s. Pours clear amber, nose is banana, light citrus, toffee, taste is similar, sweet, dry. Scopey (15500) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from Middle Farm. It pours clear amber with a medium, foamy white head. The nose is toasty, wheat, brown bread, cereal and earth. The taste is bitter, earthy, toasty, mouldy bread, must, weetabix, earth and grassy hops with a drying finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Can’t say I love the style. Smells decent, but lacks some punch in the flavour department.
