COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 summer’s day.

minutemat (5401) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, - OCT 26, 2013
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 I’d go for another.

jjsint (3002) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle from Bacchanalia, drunk at home. Cream-yellow, cloudy with quite a lot of visible carbonation. Odd little aroma: lemon/lime, a touch of coriander, a touch of posset. Taste jars at first but I get quite used to it quickly: sweetly spiced with a sour note that increases slightly to the short finish. Grainy and lightly astringent aftertaste. Not too sold on this one, although it is refreshing.

lokis333 (489) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUN 8, 2017
Very lightly cloudy golden color with quickly fizzing out white foam. Aromas of citrus, herbs and like... Something I have had before but do not remember what it is, a berry perhaps that is lightly tart? A little bit like seabuckthorn mixed with some sappy pine needles? Whatever it is it is, interesting and I like it! Palate, light body, thin texture leaving somewhat dry finish? Taste, dry bitter of herbs, pine resin, and mint leaves as well as some lemon zest? Overall, rather interesting and unusual beer, having a nice herbal touch to it, rather confusing to pinpoint what I taste, but also very light and fresh almost like a pale lager, I don’t even know, don’t ask me, try it yourself it is interesting! Oh perhaps notes of juniper too?

Koelschtrinker (20223) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2017
Süßer Geruch. Starke Karbonisierung, süß kräutriger Antrunk. Wässrig, leicht herb, muffige Weizennoten. Ne. 7/8/6/7//6

PanMarek (423) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Pale, cloudy golden pour with little foam and some persistent bubbles. Sweet, wheat nose with touches of spice (pepper) and a little banana. Light body, slightly watery with little fizz and a mildly sour finish. Definite pepper, clove and banana in the taste. They compliment the malt well, keeping the beer from being too sweet. A good combination that would compliment spicy food well.

This is an amazing beer to accompany Indian food. There is a herbal quality that is very pleasant. It's not bitter but not sweet either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 13, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexey & Raphaela’s place. Thanks troubles. Hazy golden. Herbs, flowers, spiciness, some fruity esters, wheat, rather dry, slightly tart, light to medium-bodied, lively carbonation.

HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2017
September 24, 2015 - at Craft (Covent Garden) - keg draught. Very hazy gold, average white head. Slightly buttery aroma - lemon, fruit, quite a lot of cereal and perfume soap; taste follows but with a wack of black pepper overriding all - I can’t think this is deliberate. Solid body, astringent, airy, buttery aftertaste ... odd duck for a hefe - my takeaway from it was "not all that good"

3.2
the1_ts (1) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2016 does not count
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.
