JohnRMurdoch (4928) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2017
Bottle from BrewDog OnLine. Muddy brown, massive foamy head. Wheat caramel aroma. Big wheat grain toffee flavour. Sharp with bitter sweet aftertaste. Big flavour for this type of beer.

3.3
Scopey (14992) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2017
Bottle from Oddbins. It pours hazy amber with a thick white head. The aroma is herbal, grassy, mint, bread, green banana, bit sweaty, pine and a bit of gooseberry. The taste is dry, bitter, quite piney, gooseberry, white grape, citrus peel, sherbet, soapy, toilet cleaner, bread, tannin, rice pudding and some banana as it warms up with a drying finish. Medium body and moderate - high, foamy carbonation. Perhaps a bit of an unusual combination of flavours, but I kind of like it.

3.2
Erasmus_ro (3076) - Alabama, USA - APR 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark orange with a large, off-white head. Aroma is soapy, pine, rug-cleaning detergent, menthol. Taste is the detergent, pine, soapy, some menthol and fruitiness, somewhat spicy. Full and chewy. Says it’s a hefeweizen, but the yeast is as unpleasant clots.

3.6
Garrold (5341) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2017
Bottle. Little Leeds Beer House. Gold colour. Would have poured clear, but I gave it a swirl and it ended up thick as a bag. Dense, lasting, off white head. Nose has chewy sweet hoppage. Like a bucket of orange Opal Fruits. A bit wheaty. A bit of pine. It’s got that toilet cleaner thing going on. Taste is sweet and fruity, with some rising bitterness. Full mouthfeel. Soft and foamy. Full bitter finish. Decent. A bit weird.

3.1
jookos (6875) - FINLAND - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle. Strangely murky golden light hazy. Yeasty notes, bit bavarian, malted sweet wheaty, green bushy currants hoppy nose. Med bdoied, well bittered, not harsh, but almosts puckering finish. Flavourful, not just in my liking, flavour profile bit off my liking.

3.6
LazyPyro (1295) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2017
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a fluffy off-white head with good retention. Aroma is spicy and slightly vinous, with typical banana, citrus, cloves, wheat, yeast. Taste is citrusy, spicy, wheat, yeast, nelson sauvin stands out. Mouthfeel is very smooth, medium carbonation and body. Different but quite good.

3.5
Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Keg at BrewDog Soho. Hazy orange shade. Short white head to nothing. Candied sweets, peach and apricot leaning to tropical flavours. Fizzy carbonation. Quite bitter. Not bad.

3.4
minutemat (5689) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2017
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie. Pours a hazy amber, frothy overly enthusiastic white head. Aroma of exotic, lime fruit, spice. It’s fairly spice-forward in the taste, with pillowy smooth yeast, and prominent Sauvin exotic fruit notes. Not entirely convinced everything gels but it’s a smooth, fruity take on the style.

3.5
teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 6, 2017
Keg at CPK. It pours a hazed golden color with a large white head. Aroma is fruity and estery and grainy with notes of straw pineapple and banana. Taste is also yeasty estery fruity with more notes of grains banana and pineapple. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice hefe
