This beer is very, very dry, a real citrus-sharp flavour which I found attractive. It's also very refreshing, and slips down very well. What surprised me when it was delivered was how clear it was... when ordering a wheat beer you don't expect it to be so bright. I wonder if it's filtered. Whatever, I liked it a lot and it's recommended.

Sampled at the Cambridge Beer Festival 2008

Appearance: light aple juice in color, smallish head

Smell: hoppier than expected, little in the way of typical wheat beer aromas. smells like a wheat beer brewed with the usual house yeast

Taste: again - hoppier than expected, no malt character to speak of, light fruitiness, but unbalanced

Mouthfeel: light body, undercarbonated

Drinkability: mediocre, even for the style

Found this one on cask at Brooklyn's Spuyten Duyvil, during their wonderful "Yeast fest" . Pours cloudy, hazy, yellowy, light golden amber, with a loose, larger bubble white head, leaving loads of foamy, thick lacing. Mild nose of malt and some zesty citrus. This is a very pleasant, light and easy drinking British wheat beer. Soft citric notes and smooth maltyness. Light and refreshing. Fine summer quaffer.

Tasted this beer by half-pint at the recent Catford Beerfestival in London.

It pours a hazy, pale-yellowish hue, with a sustaining sponge-like head full of big bubbles. The nose is very citrusy zesty, with some pungent, acidic mead-like aroma and "floating" fruity hops at the back. A very intensive and colourful nose. On palate, there is grapefruit juicy flavour, with lightly bitter taste of crushed grapefruit seeds, leading to a very rich, lingering, three-dimensional bitter finish. The overall structure of this beer is quite clear, with an initially sharp, zesty mouthfeel turning settled and deeply bitter...just sensational. An abosolutely one-is-not-enough, delicious wheat beer.

Really agreed with me. Aromatic citric hops. Long, dry, grapefruity, bitter finish, refreshing, tasty.Like a German Wheat, only very English tasting. Fragrant, fresh and with a nice dry finish, very pleasant to drink, although not hugely complex, well made (Cask KentBF 03')
