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 summers day.

Garrold (4945) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Keg at Leeds International Beer Festival. 4.0%. Cloudy straw colour. One of the brewers invited me to guess the herb in this. The nearest I got was fennel. (Well, thats what the missus thought). He then went on to say he wanted this to taste a bit like a red sauce. I thought, oh yeah, it does too. Slightly spicy, fruity. Good job. Except later his colleague said to me, "Bread sauce, not red sauce!". Im not really cut out for this tasting lark...

Bottle from ales by mail. Love the artwork!
hazy burnished gold with fluffy white head collapsing to a mere lacing. Spicey, slightly tart aroma of cloves, black pepper and lemon peel. Medium body and full of flavour for its fairly diminutive strength. Interesting peppery tingle and a woodsy sage like herbal note, slight szechwan like tongue tingle in a dry finish. Its like a grisette saison.

Fruity and gingery aroma. Tastes like ginger beer. Cloudy gingery appearance. Quite a bit of sediment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Backlog rating. Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. It pours a hazy light straw color with a medium white soapy white head. Aroma is grassy and herbal with citrus and banana notes. Taste is medium bitter with light grains, more grassy hops and an interesting herbal profile alongside orange peel. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this one quite a lot.
