A contract brew for Pinchinthorpe Hall, which features a range of bottle-conditioned organic beers. This one claims to be a "wheat beer", although ingredients are not clearly marked on the beer label. BB Sep 07, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a murky, dark yellow honey hue; the beer head is restrained and retreats to a bubbly rim, while the fizziness is mixed with large and tiny bubbles.
S: the aroma is reminiscent of a cross b/w German Hefe-weizen and Belgian Witbier, featuring a pronounced flow of banana-ish esters, backed by clean and sweet-ish wheats, a hint of caramelised sugar, sweet orangey hops (akin to a Belgian Blond now...), and a hint of spice as in Belgian witbier. Pretty mild and simplistic for a weizen-style wheat beer, but quite approachable.
T: quite yeasty upfront on the palate, with plenty of bitter and musty farm-house yeast chunks... gradually the bitter/acidic, lemon-zesty edge tunes up, along with a mild stream of semi-sweet wheat malts and intensifyingly dry aftertaste of hops and yeasts... Bitter yet clean finish.
M&D: the soothingly fizzy texture is a live witness to good bottle-conditioning efforts, only jeopardised by somewhat rough and bitter yeastiness. Overall this is a refreshing and EASY-drinking wheat beer. Not to be equate with German Hefe-weizen or Belgian Witbier, but since there's no such category as "English Wheat Beer", I enter it here as a Belgian Wit as far as the spiciness on the palate is concerned--that said, it's got a thicker body than most Belgian Wit, though.
