    Just saw it in shops, haven't tried it yet. Description sounds remarkably like Breo and other Witbeers. Can't really recall now what Breo tasted like, but since there wasn't a huge craft range back then, and I don't recall it tasting weird or very different to other available beer, I suspect it was a bit blander than something like blue moon or hoegarden.

    I remember it tasting startlingly different to anything available, with weirdly massive amounts of fruit and spice and perfume. Which isn't to say it wasn't blander than Blue Moon or Hoegaarden :o

    Interesting, but I guess it was about 18 years ago since I had it!

    Likewise! Nearly twenty since I first drank it.

    I remember it being like Hoegaarden. Corriander and cloves.

    Yeah me too, but not a good!

    the quote at the time was it was nice, but you couldn't drink it all night

    Just had a Guinness irish wheat. It's not bad actually. Lemony citrus notes, hint of banana. I think it's a little bit more interesting than something like hoegarden.
