COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Generally only available bottle conditioned.
Previously brewed at 5.0%.
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.

Sample at the brewery, st. Austell. fruity nose, flavor is apple, banana, quite sweetish, not bad though.

LazyPyro (1109) - 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 wouldn’t buy this one again.

baaj (29) - DENMARK - JUL 6, 2015
Enjoyed in Cornwall. Yellow is the name and yellow it is in my glass. A fine wheat beer in its own Cornishstyle

3.3
Sjohnh (928) - 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.

2.3
beeebon (443) - 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 isn’t anything special, below average.
