Brewery –           Bristol Beer Factory

Beer –                  Bristol Hefe

Alcohol –           4.8%

Origin –              Bristol, Avon

Style –                Wheat Beer

Season –            Summer

Although this beer claims to be an out and out Wheat beer, I think it’s more of a cross between a wheat beer and a good old English Golden ale.

It’s golden orange amber colour, cloudy, with a thick white head. Sweet, Hoppy yet light on the nose, with a resiny pine freshness.

Like a typical Wheat Beer, it is citrusy, zesty, and vibrant, with tropical fruit notes, but like an English golden ale it has a satisfying bitter dry finish.

Flavoursome, Fun, and Fruity.. Perfect for Saturday Summer afternoon Session!

Alcohol –           4.2%

Origin –               Salisbury, Wiltshere

Style –                 Blonde Beer

Season –             Summer

Clean, Crisp, Light and Refreshing.

This is a great example of a Summer ale. Much the same as its big brother at Hopback; Summer Lightening, this has a wonderfully light flavour making it superbly easy drinking.

Its Lemongrass notes give it a floral nose, and a subtle citrusy flavour with a surprisingly bitter finish.
