Verdant’s American style Wheat Beer is a summery thing of beauty.
Pouring a thick and soupy pale yellow with a big frothy head, it smells of strawberries, melon and nettles.
The body is smooth and creamy, all brown sugar syrup and those pink waffle biscuits you ate as a child, while the London Ale yeast brings its own bruised peach and lightly spiced apricot heart to the proceedings.
And then there’s the Citra and Chinook hops that between them give you lashings of home made lemonade, lots of fizzy zesty tangerine peel and the warm along with warm woody tobacco leaves.
All this culminates in a finish that’s lively and bitter.
