A - Lovely hazy gold with nice dense white head.

S - Sour Alcohol, little bit of citrus.

T - Sweet tartness with extreme warmning from the alcohol. Enjoy more as the tasting continues.

M - Nice light carbonation, but get too much sourness.

Overall - good beer encompassing the style. Little too strong on the alcohol flavour.

Pours orange-tinged gold colour, nice haze to it. Head is off-white, nice and densely-packed but with nice webbing on the top. Lace is decent, clingy. Looks good.

Smell is tart and wheaty, but a large dose of booze on there as well. Slight citrus, a touch of melon, but the dominant aroma is, sadly, a characterless alcohol heat. Yeah, tart - sour, even - and boozey. That's about it.

Taste is definitely better. Quite rich with lots of sour notes, raw wheat mixed with orange peel, some white wine vinegar and distinct floral notes. Yes, camomile, but I'm thinking jasmine as well. It tempers the tart wheat notes, but doesn't entirely take over the palate. There's a hot booze note on the very end, which is a shame, but finish is still nicely floral with a tangy organic flavour. Quite nice, but not entirely successful.

Nice, full, smooth, feel. Booze is there in flavour only, not in the texture.

Yeah, a nice imperial wheat that manages to redeem itself in spite of a number of flaws. Decent, enjoyable brew.

Crystal clear golden colour with a lovely, off-white head. Good head retention.

Spicy, coriander and pepper aroma. Mild tartness as in a saison. Good fruitiness.

Rounded fruit and spice character with good flavour balance. The fruits are a blend of banana and citrus. There is some pepper and a mild dose of herbal chamomile. Balanced, clean and beautiful.

Medium-light body with high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

A lovely beer with lots going for it. Plenty of flavour, balance and a crisp mouthfeel. Very good.
