3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured with good carbonation to form a hazy golden hue with a large white head. The aroma was strong citrus hops-lemon, grapefruit etc with a little freshly cut grass for good measure
Taste wise, it was medium bodied with plenty of initial bitterness. There are lots of citrus flavours: orange, lemon and grapefruit, but also grass and, once the bitterness subsides, a touch of wheat. The finish is mainly dry with a little sweetness right at the death.
This is a strange one. It’s not like any wheat beer I’ve had before. In fact, it’s not really a wheat beer at all as it lacks sufficient, erm, wheat to be classed as such. It’s actually more of an American Pale Ale. However, I liked it and, served chilled, it would be quite refreshing.
Bottle at the Kernel Brewery on 25 Aug 2012. Poured a hazy, pale orange colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of tangerines, peppery hop and honey. Wheat in the flavour, with some flowery hop and pineapple. Finish was dry straw, grass and biscuit. johndoughty (5504) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy yellow. Fruitiness hits you with a venom. Medium body and a winner. iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2013

Aromatic tropical fruit. Texture is thick and oily. Flavour has initial fruity sweetness and a dry, hoppy bitter finish. zacgillbanks (5356) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a cloudy yellow coloured beer with spicy orange and grapefruit flavours, a creamy mouthfeel and bitter pine on the finish. A great tasting IPA rather than the wheat beer I was expecting.

The aroma holds citrus (lime, lemon, orange and grapefruit), spicy wood, pine, earth, subtle ripe tropical/yellow fruits, ripe red berries/strawberry jam and grass/herbs. Bread and a whisper of caramel.

The mouthfeel is watery and light astringent with a light carbonation. Hoppy, lingering bitter finish with a light fruity touch. Light bodied. _angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2012

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours orange, with a smidge of sediment allowed in. Smells sweetly lemony. Mouthfeel is light and tasty, with nice, initial St Clements feel. Finish though is aggressively bitter, in a rather astringent fashion, which knocks the experience down a couple of notches. Still good, but you have to fight through the finish. Addendum: by the end of the glass I’ve been filled with live. 2 marks added. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 6, 2012
The head is ok. It smells citrus-hoppy. The taste is hoppy, a bit yeasty, full bodied. The taste is more Pale Ale then Wheat. Interesting and nice. 11/10/9/10/-/10 tommann (3850) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a bubbly, medium head. Aroma is lemon and lime jelly with some grainy undertones. Taste has lime to start with a grainy, hoppy lime finish. Good stuff.
