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.

330ml bottle from Borough Wines. Very interesting taste indeed, and aroma actually. Hard to place what it is. Fresh herbs, coriander, mint, rosehip, flora, nettle, pot pourri... ok, but not sure Id go for another.

Cloudy yellow and white foam of a Hefewiezen, lemony and herby tones. Quite sweet with fruity flavours.

330 ml bottle from Wanstead Tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a white, frothy, short-lived head. Aroma of cheese-flavoured crisps and rotten herbs, unpleasant. Taste is herbal, acidic, chemical. Average carbonation level, not a pleasant beer. Nope.

Sampled from a bottle from Prohibition Wines. Yellow colour with a white head. Slightly sour and herbal aroma, and a taste of sage, apple, cloves and banana. Quite herbaceous and slightly medicinal. Very tasty (despite the low ABV) and refreshing. An interesting beer, not quite like anything else I have tried.

Bottle, served in Paradise Garage as part of their food/drink pairing. I like this brewery quite a lot but had always passed on this despite its good London availability. I just wouldnt normally want to drink some weird herbal wheat beer. And I was right, it is very unusual with very strong botanical notes over and above the weizen notes which do lurk in the background, clove and apple, and would be pretty odd in a pub, say. But it was amazing with the appetiser/amuse bouche type courses with the herbal notes really going well with the savoury snacks. So in that case as a beer for food it is a roaring success. No idea then how to rate it...

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.
