This is a nice witbier. Lots of flavours fighting for dominance in it, while the entity itself remains subtle and refreshing.

A – Hazy off yellow orange with thick creamy foam head that dies off to a covering leaving heavy lace in the glass as you drink. In short a very good looking beer.

S – Really great wheat and lemon aroma with a slight musty smell like a potato and grain store. Also there are some sweet notes with a little bite almost like sour bubble gum or Gin and tonic.

T – This one taste like a pretty straight up wheat beer! There is lemon citrus aided by the slice of lemon they stick in the glass whether you want it or not. Good musty wheat malts with earthy sand and biscuit flavours a sweet edge like bubble gum and leafy freshness. So, this all follows the nose pretty well.

MF – Very creamy and smooth with a tiny hint of alcohol tingle and a slightly sulphur like nip which all adds up to a good coating after you’re done.

O – This one is very drinkable but then again so is water. I’m not being mean here! I’m just pointing out this beer has good enough flavour but it is not as exciting as you might hope for. In my opinion wheat beer is gardening or fishing beer! It is refreshing and goes down easy but it is not very exciting.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.09):
Cloudy golden yellow with a 1cm foamy white head that holds for about a minute before slowly reducing in size to leave a fairly thick lacing covering the surface.

Sweet and fruity with some citrus and a few floral notes along with a banana smell and some bubblegum. Some wheat, orange, coriander and some spice also feature in the mix with the fruity aroma coming out on top.

Fruity with a mix of wheat, some yeast and banana along with some bubblegum and orange peel too. There was some light lemon and a pleasant tang to the taste that goes down well.

Smooth with a light medium body but thankfully not thin or watery. There is a very faint hint of sweetness from the fruits but the citrus comes out stronger and masks this for the most part. Carbonation is light medium and the beer is quite easy to drink.

Fairly simple taste and not overly complex but it still has a very nice tasting that goes down quite well and is refreshing too. It's not one of the better witbiers that I've had lately but it was still a nice offering that reminded me a little of Blue Moon although it also seemed more hefeweizen that witbier in places.
