SilkTork (5738) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
JDW Spring fest - Rochester. A lightly spicy beer, hints of ginger. Quite pale. Some sweetness, though well attenuated. Decent stuff - drinkable and pleasant in a laid back way.

berkshirejohn (6502) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
Cask at the Regal (JDW), Cambridge. Straw with an off-white head; floral aroma; light perfumed floral flavour; and a grapefruit bitterness to finish. Very pleasant.

Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 12, 2010
Cask @ Counting House, JDW. Clear golden colour, medium dense white head. Aroma is lemonade, fruits, biscuit, almost perfumy. Flavour is wheaty, banana, yeast, fruity . Indeed, resembles a belgian white. Decent malty backbone. Fairly dry and slightly bitter finish. Interesting mix of belgian and british styles. Extremely drinkable.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
Cask, Lloyds, Carlisle. A decent attempt at a Belgian Weiss, with banana and cloves apparent, if quite subtle. My pint was close to bright, so maybe it had had too much settling to give a decent haze. Tasty.

leaparsons (10551) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
Cask, The Highcross, Leicester. Amber gold with a thin foam. Aromas are stewed apple and pear with biscuit malts. Lightly spiced. Flavours are sweet and fruity toffee malts with apricot and tea, Peppery and earthy hops on the finish. OK.

downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 8/04/10. Slightly hazy gold in colour, with a moderate white head. Aroma of lemony hops, tropical fruits and sweetish malts. Hoppy, citrus flavour, with some yeast notes and a long dry finish. Very good.

imdownthepub (14556) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale gold with white head. Light and lemon sorbet like flavours with background hints of passion fruit. Really rather pleasing and much appreciated.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2010
Cask handpull at Samuel Peto, JDW, Folkestone. Pale gold, lasting white head. Faint Belgian yeast aroma. Good sherbert hop flavour and finish. It’s ok if just not overly adventurous. Good to have something different.

sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2010
Cask - West Gate Inn (JDW), Canterbury. Poured a clear golden orange with a very slight initial haze that soon cleared, topped by a thin white head. Lemon and orange aromas. A mild, mid-length bitterness succeeds fruity, juicy hop flavours. Light to medium in body with low to medium carbonation.
