Pale yellow in color and naturally conditioned in the bottle, the beer may be poured cloudy by gently swirling the last few inches to rouse the natural yeast sediment. Alternatively, clear beer can be decanted carefully leaving the yeast behind. Either way serve cool in a tall glass for a superbly refreshing wheat beer of character and individuality. Only natural ingredients are used including our own supply of exceptionally soft Cornish spring water. Malted wheat produces a beer with a citrus tang which has been delicately flavoured with whole spices and vanilla. The combination of flavors is brought alive by gently sweetening with pure organic maple syrup.
Ingredients: Maris Otter pale malt, whaet malt. Willamette hops. Vanilla pods, cloves, coriander, maple syrup.

LazyPyro (665) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a clouded orange colour, not yellow as the name would suggest. Big frothy white head but it collapses quickly leaving almost nothing behind. Some floating sediment in the middle of the glass. Aroma is very fresh and herby, easy to detect the coriander and cloves, as well as the vanilla, citrus fruits too... banana? lemon? Flavour is wheaty, sweet, citrus fruit, coriander. Nice but quite different from actual Belgian witbiers - probably wouldnt buy this one again.

Enjoyed in Cornwall. Yellow is the name and yellow it is in my glass. A fine wheat beer in its own Cornishstyle

Sjohnh (809) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Slightly cloudy orange / brown. Medium grainy body. Woody spices very prominent - the expected clove and coriander plus some cinnamon and nutmeg. Banana there in the background, as is vanilla.

beeebon (410) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Pours a brown with pretty much no head. Aroma is banana, cloves, yeast and caramel. Taste is a bit bland, slightly sweet and slightly bitter but overall rather watery and certainly nothing to write home about. Overall this isnt anything special, below average.

SarkyNorthener (4183) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle from tesco, lichfield. Clear golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of coriander and bubblegum. Taste is bubblegum, light spice and coriander. Not like any other Belgian Wit I have tried before, its clear. Dull.

Lowenbrau (3306) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle @St. Austell Brewery Taproom. 11-08-2014.
A wheat beer with nice vanila, coriander and vanilla aromas. Light body, average to high carbonation, some crispy texture. Enjoyable.

JonnyConga (121) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
From bottle into wheat beer glass. Aroma a little yeasty and wheaty. Taste a bit boring - not sure what yeast this uses but doesn't have characteristics of a german or Belgian wheat beer. Won't seek out again in a hurry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pdubyah (658) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2014
This is 3 months out of itds best before date, but that does not explain the total averageness of this, Bearing in mind that is past Best Before though, this is thin, watery, tasteless and has no redeeming features, and Ill never know if it could be better as Id never risk another. Possibly but probably not the worst beer I had for many moons.

Aroma of toasted peanuts. Cloudy golden in appearance. Tastes like barbecue. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
