A 500ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2014. Acquired a little while back from the York Beer & Wine shop. Described on the label as a clear wheat beer with intense citrus hops. Brewed with 77% wheat malt and 23% pale malt.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden-amber hue with good carbonation. Yields a large head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with hints of white grape, melon, citrus, gooseberry, mild grass, grain, subtle wheat and ale yeast. Rather nice.

Tastes of intensely fruity hops with a spicy bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, white grape, gooseberry, grass/hay, mild wheat, a hint of grain, ale yeast and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a crisp, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with good carbonation and decent body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, citrus and yeast.

Pretty good - lots of fruitiness. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are brimming with citrus and white fruit. The malt and wheat take a definite back seat but provide a degree of balance. Body is OK. A very modern wheat beer - shame the malt isn't a bit more up front. Goes down nicely though; great if you love hops. Worth a punt if you come across it.
