30 Second Beer Review - Tundra by Black Wolf Brewery

Here's the first of my 30 Second Beer Reviews. The format will always be they same with information on where I bought the beer and how much it cost as well as my own thoughts on the beer itself. Hopefully, the review can be read in 30 seconds or less.
Tundra Wheat Beer (ABV 4.8%) from Black Wolf Brewery
  • Bought at Aldi for £1.49
  • Pours with a foamy head that thins a little as you go down the glass.
  • Hazy golden in colour, clearer in colour than most wheat beers.
  • Lots of citrus & floral notes, Tundra is dry hopped with elderflower which definitely comes through on the nose.
  • Medium carbonation.
  • Slightly sweet although noticeable presence of clove balances flavour. Very smooth with nice slightly bitter finish.
I'm a big fan of wheat beers and I thought that Tundra stood up well to some of the big players in this arena. The only downside for me was that it was maybe just a little too sweet which would stop me being able to drink more than a couple in one sitting. That said, I imagine that it would work well with highly spiced Indian food.
