2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not the best Harviestoun beer - but with so many other good beers in their portfolio this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm also not quite sure what they are attempting here, it's not spicy enough to be a Belgian wheat, too thin for a German wheat... maybe the UK Wheat category should be created for unspiced, 4-5% bland beers? Very pale in colour, almost lager like, with an underlying lemony aroma and taste. A fairly dry, bitter finish. Unusual, but not unpleasant. (sampled on Cask in Royal Oak, Wigan)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2004 Cask Conditioned, Royal Standard, Wooburn Common. Not really much like a Belgian White at all. Looks like a barely carbonated lager. Tastes like a normal bitter with a bit of sourness. Odd, but not unpleasent.

Aromas are both sweet and sour. This gold-yellow beer is typical of an English wheat and NOT a Belgian Wit. This is more like a standard bitter with more sourness. Still a decent beer but why not have an English Wheat? Its a separate style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks more like an English pale ale than a wheat beer. The aroma reminds me of straw, but overall the the beers aroma comes across as very fresh. The flavour is bitter and lightly citric with slight sour notes. A different wheat beer style, not as good as the Belgian or German wheat beers by any means, but reasonable.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled cask conditioned. Pale yellow. Vanilla and citrus aroma. Light bodied, rather sweet with orangey finish. Very refreshing. Seems like they have something similar to summer in Scotland too...
