3.15/5 rDev -7.1%
A 355ml bottle with a BB of July 2014, so it's just out of date. ABV stated as 4.4%. Purchased a while back from a supermarket. Been meaning to try this for some time now.
Poured into a straight pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A pale golden hue with plentiful fine sediment and medium carbonation. Yields a decent head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of light, grainy wheat with hints of earthy yeast, bread, husk and faint stewed leaves. Subtle but pleasant enough.
Tastes of light wheat with a lingering dry finish. Notes of grainy wheat, earthy yeast, mild husks, subtle grass/hay, a twinge of lemon, faint floral hints and stewed leaves. Well-attenuated, followed by a delicate yeastiness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and lightly tingly, with pleasant carbonation and decent body for the style. Mildly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of wheat grain, earthy yeast and faint stewed leaves.
Thirst-quenching but uneventful - an average wheat beer. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by dry yeast and wheat notes with faint hop undertones. Body is OK if a tad light. Goes down easily enough; would be nice on a hot day. Nothing to write home about though - no need to hunt it down.
