COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - July 2010.

A pale copper coloured wheat beer, bursting with summery flavours. A blend of continental hops give a soft bitterness balanced by a floral hoppy finish and then rounded off with an orangey citrus afterpalate. This is guaranteed to slip down a treat.

Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Cask at the Red Lion, Isleworth, Bank Holiday Festival, 27th August 2010. Pale amber. Clove, orange peel and frankincense nose. Quite fresh initial taste for this strength but then hefty stewed fruit flavours come through. Weight is good - not heavy but robust.

[email protected] Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, earth, some mild bisquity notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same with also some mild honeyish notes. I think it hides it’s wheat rather well...

Ungstrup (38489) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2010. A golden beer with no head. The aroma has notes of citrus fruits and elderflowers as well as lighter notes of wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and wheat, leading to a dry wheaty finish.

[3267-20100803] Cask sample. Sweet honey-like grass aroma mixed with an odd potpourri floral note. Clear, medium orange body with a quick foamy white head. More fruity honey in the flavour with potpourri hops and an odd fruity aftertaste. Medium body. Really? A wheat beer? That’s weird.
(@ GBBF 2010, London, England)

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2010
Cask handpump at GBBF ’10. Gold with a small white head. Underarm aroma with some paint. Sweet taste, a bit watery, with a little Weetabix. Some bitterness. No sign of the ’orangey afterpalate’, which would have been nice. Fair attempt.
