An excellent beer! Golden cloudy appearance with a thick frothy head. I couldn't really distinguish what was the dominant fruit composing the beer but it felt like a blend of tropical fruits giving it a very pleasent smell and smooth taste. Light mouthfeel with sweet and very moderate sour hints so one can easily enjoy 3-4 pints. It's a shame that this beer is not found in pubs very often. If you can get it... Try it!

This beer is, quite frankly, just plain delicious.

Served on tap it has a big frothy head and a slightly cloudy pale yellow/gold appearance.

The nose is citrus but not over the top, at this point I was thinking "Well this'll be a nice summer sip".

The taste is amazing, white peach dominates with layers of dried citrus peel and cloves. The inherent sweetness that many witbiers have is hinted at but it doesn't have any cloying after taste. The first sip leads to second gulp and very quick re-order.

The finish is long and clean and leaves you wanting more. I had three in rapid succession at my first sitting and two in a short time the next.

Highly, very highly, recommended.

Please note, these ratings apply only to the "on tap" product. I recently had it in bottle and would probably drop a full point off the ratings

On tap served in a pint glass.

A--Very hazy, bright yellow (although that may be exaggerated b/c it was backlit by the sun). Nice head
S--Quite citrusy. Lemony with a little orange.
T--Follows the smell perfectly. A whole lotta lemon. Almost like a summer shandy (of which I am not a fan), but I really liked this. Crisp & clean, refreshing.
M--Crisp & light. Bubbly & quenching, left a quick but nice aftertaste.
O--An excellent one if you're having more than one on a summer day. I had two at my local beergarden with dinner and give it two thumbs up. Possibly better than other reviews b/c I had it on tap vs. bottle like many others here. I'm planning on getting a case next week.

I am thoroughly surprised by this beer. It looks absolutely amazing, a very light, cloudy green tea colour with a very healthy head and great retention. The smell hints of banana (like those popsicles you used to get at the corner store) and citrus. Its incredibly light and tasty, with fruit flavours that go perfectly in a witbier. In fact, this takes second place in the witbier category for me, after Hoegaarden. This beer is very underrated.

A - Pours a hazy golden with a thin and quickly receding head that leaves a thin layer with good lacing. (3.5)

S - Light but fruity and perfumy nose of fresh peaches or apricots. (4)

T - Upfront fruity tastes with peaches or apricots and some citrus; pleasant perfumy or floral notes deck the background with a tad of spices. After taste is fairly lasting and pleasantly fruity and perfumy. (4)

M - Light on the mouthfeel with slightly higher than average carbonation and slight creamy smoothness. (4)

D - Very drinkable and sessionable due to the really pleasant tastes for a witbier style brew. I first had it on tap at Helipad (@ Clarke Quay, Singapore) and found it pretty good and ended up picking up two 4-packs. The bottled version seems to taste more fruity and perfumy than on tap. I highly recommend this as a very sessionable witbier. (4.5)

Picked up 8 x 25cl bottles at Cold Storage in Singapore
