Flavoured wheat beers

Abbaye des Rocs Blanche des Honnelles

Abbaye des Rocs Blanche des Honnelles
74A strong wheat beer with plenty of taste, but a bit too chewy and heavy for my taste and a little dull on the whole.

Brewery Huyghe Floris Apple

Brewery Huyghe Floris Apple
70Not as horrible as it sounds, but I wouldn't want to drink this on its own. It could work quite well with apple puddings, though.

Brewery Huyghe Floris Framboise

Brewery Huyghe Floris Framboise
75Over-the-top fruit flavour, but reasonably drinkable on the whole. Another beer for the dessert course. The colour of cherryade.

Brewery Huyghe Floris Honey

Brewery Huyghe Floris Honey
64Way too sweet. Having said that, I'm not a lover of honey but I found this quite pleasant – in small doses.

Brewery Huyghe Floris Passion

Brewery Huyghe Floris Passion
76Refreshingly sharp and acidic – feel those gums recede! – and consequently not as sweet or cloying as other beers in the Floris range.

Brouwerij Van Steenberge Celis White

Brouwerij Van Steenberge Celis White
79It's not subtle and it's not balanced, but you can't accuse this of being bland. An interesting beer with a good, light texture.

Inbev Hoegaarden

Inbev Hoegaarden
76Having set the benchmark for the witbier style, this beer now appears to be going through the motions. It seems to have less flavour than when I last tasted it and drinks rather dull and tired.

Meantime Meantime Rasberry Grand Cru

Meantime Meantime Rasberry Grand Cru
81A refreshing, challenging, golden beer with a red blush, displaying skilful and well judged use of fruit.

O'Hanlon's Goldblade

O'Hanlon's Goldblade
82A cross between a British ale and a Belgian witbier, and a successful one at that. Tasty, clean and quaffable.

Oettinger Oettinger Weizen & Grapefruit

Oettinger Oettinger Weizen & Grapefruit
69There's not much sign of beer in this cloudy orange confection but it's clean, fresh and better than spirit based alcopops. Perhaps there's a market among Pimms drinkers but it's not going to be of mu...

St Austell Clouded Yellow

St Austell Clouded Yellow
79A well-balanced attempt to re-create weizenbier flavours through the addition of spices rather than using a wheat beer yeast. It's not very demanding or full flavoured but it's pleasant enough.

Van Diest Fruli Strawberry Beer

Van Diest Fruli Strawberry Beer
72Remember Cresta, the soft drink advertised by the polar bear in shades back in the 70s? That's what this reminds me of. It's frothy, man.
