Crack’d Wheat

12 oz single, courtesy of Kevin – many thanks.
Absolutely delighted to get a chance to try this beer. It promises much.
The pour is a lovely, butterscotch hazed affair with a nice, rocky head. Good looking beer without doubt.
The nose and tastes have plenty of clove and banana notes, but the emphasis seems to be on the clove and spice elements. Some alcohol, but also a few medicinal phenols. The phenols are where this beer starts to deviate a little from authenticity. They don’t grate, but the y do add a pepper note which although is not too unpleasant, does take it a little out of the genre.
The finish comes through with a little more fusel alcohol.
Pretty nice beer with some good tastes but it does feel slightly out of the ordinary. You can make your own mind up as to whether this is a good thing or not.
