Tasted by a half-pint at the Devonshire Cat, Sheffield. Sparkler-poured. The pumpclip bears subtitiles below the beer's name, saying "Schnee Weiss Bier", so I presume this beer was meant to ape a German Weizen?

A: coming in a pale-yellow-ish, murky straw colour; creamy white head on top of low carbonation. Temp. is pretty low, almost chilled - intentionally so?
S: quite floral and sweet lemony in terms of hoppiness; a swirl brings out a touch of lager-ish sourness, plus lightly grainy malts, melted sugar, and citrus zestiness.
T: gosh... a washing-up-liquid like lemony flavour (? not that I've tasted it!!) and gum-like fruitiness prevails from the beginning, then (thank god...) taken over by a mildly spicy, almost ginger-ish, touch, peachy fruits and banana-esters... Quite dry in the finish with a zesty-bitter palate, rather chewy for a weizen-pretender.
M&D: refreshing and light for a 5%abv. wheat-ish ale, while the texture is pleasantly clean overall. If this was meant to be a British wheat-bitter, this is fine; but, if it was to pretend to be a German Weizen (I can't be blamed for presuming so, as implied by the subtitles on the pump clip), then this is a failure.
