UPDATED: NOV 15, 2010 1)The Ritz, Lincoln. Muddy orange with a saliva-like halo. Jammy apricot and clove aroma with a scatter of earth and authenticity. Acidic and earthy with clove, biscuit crumbs; mouldy banana and TCP-swilled ashtray hints. Has a good go but let down by condition. 525312.
2) The Felix Holt, Nuneaton. Proper conditioning this time. Authentic clovey spice and banana. Definitely in the top 5 English hefeweizens I’ve encountered- upgraded to 637313. leaparsons (10698) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2010
Cask, Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Hazy gold and orange with a thin head. Aromas are yeasty with banana and citrus. Caramel with spices, including coriander. Flavours are smooth, sweet caramel followed by tart citrus and yeast. Medicinal notes with yeast. Dry on the finish. Not bad.

Cask, handpump at The Babbington, JDW, Derby, Derbyshire 06.11.10 This is a hazy pourer as I expected. Some banana, touch floral, bit of clove. This is far better than I expected but then perhaps it’s because I was drinking this alongside the Thwaites Ribble Rouser (truly boring) and The Freeminer, Hairway to Steaven (Dad took this back) Spiciness as well showing in the mouth. It’s fine. A6 A3 T6 P4 Ov13 3.2 SilkTork (5801) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2010
JDW Autumn Fest 2010 - Rochester. A sweet and fruity wheat beer - honey and porridge and strawberry flavours. Quite attractive, though would appreciate a balancing bitter edge. madmitch76 (25344) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2010

Spoons Fest! Very hazy gold beer, Gost of a head. Smooth very low carbonation palate. Mild banana, a little cloves. Fair bit of wheaty malt. Tiny bit of orangey citrius before a smooth finish. A little more carbonation would have been nice but decent enough.
Cask, The Rake. Intense wheat, far too much wheat, very tough and doughy, not at all drinkable, just like drinking bread, banana and toffee, malt is soo sickly sweet, just can’t tolerate this.Does not appeal to me.
