Bottle conditioned; Regular Foraged Herb Hefeweisse. A pale and hazy wheat beer with pronounced herbal notes, this beer has hints of clove, citrus, and banana. Conceived as a perfect match to classic roast chicken, Wu Gang will also go nicely with spicy food. Low in alcohol but with plenty of flavour, this one is a perfect thirst-quencher on a summers day.

Bottle at Spoons, Shepherds Bush. 26/08/16. Sweet yeasty aroma. A hint of herbs or my imagination? A slightly hazy gold. Light bodied. Dry. Slightly chalky. Sour - has an odd element to it, which againll be the herbs. Nice enough.But kinda medicinal.

Tried this at the Rochester Castle in Stoke Newington. This blurb on the beer describes as having been made with foraged herbs, and true to form, it smells overwhelmingly of sage, with a sulphurous undercurrent, which put me mind of sausages, unexpected, and if Im honest, not that pleasant. Flavour upon tasting was better than smell, though very herbal. The usual notes present in Hefeweizens seemed to be obscured by this, and it was drier that most of that beer genre usually are. An interesting experiment in beermaking, but not an unmitigaged success or one Id eagerly revisit.

Bottle at the Ledbury, 5/29/16. Murky yellow, with a white head. Some spice, lemon, and wheat. Pretty solid flavor overall. Drinks nicely for the style, just a solid overall effort.

Towey1989 (2561) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2016
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pepper, wheat, some lemon, slight banana, a little apple and herbal hops. Taste of lemon, lime, wheat, some wheat, a little banana and clove plus slight herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Dont know what I think about this, unappealing aroma of pepper and herbs but a nice flavour of citrus and subtle classic Hefeweisse tones. So so.

gunnar (8872) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
Bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours hazy golden with a very big fluffy white head. Aroma of herbal hops with cloves. Taste is weak sweet, wheat with a long herbal finish, strange brew.

Smells of cheese, barnyard, and banana. Pours a hazy yellow with a quickly diminishing white head. Taste is light fruity and refreshing but not really my cup of tea. Has an almost Perry like aftertaste. Would not rush to have again.

Nocturne (1973) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Keg at Craft Beer Co, Islington. Cloudy yellow shade. Short white head. Very herbal and floral on the nose; plant stalks come to mind. Similar goings on in the taste. Flavourful and robust for 3.8% but Im not really feeling this one.
