It pours a clear golden colour with a creamy white head which quickly dissipates to leave nothing more than a few bubbles on top. Citrus fruits dominate the aroma with not much malt coming through. Not a typical wheat beer aroma, for me. The taste is more of the same: decent citrus hoppiness up front followed by a dry and bitter finish with a hint of wheat.
As a wheat beer fanatic, I'm a little disappointed with this beer. The wheat doesn't seem to add anything to this beer and it's left me pining for the bottle of Erdinger I have in the fridge.
It raises an interesting question though: what do we think of when we hear the words 'wheat beer'? For me it's that fantastically fluffy, white head on top of a hazy, golden body in a tall, slender glass. I saw the label of this beer and expected a Bavarian hefeweizen. Instead I got an English golden ale.
