12oz glass at Beer Revolution YEG.

This beer appears a cloudy, very pale golden straw colour, with one thick finger of puffy, loosely foamy, and yet somewhat creamy chalk-white head, which leaves some stellar pockmarked lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of bready, crackery pale malt, mixed orchard drupe fruit, mildly acrid yeast, lemon peel, and a prickly floral herbal bitterness. The taste is gritty, grainy pale malt, a bit of candy sugar, edgy yeast, muddled white fruit, and a soft lemon cleaner alcohol astringency.

The carbonation is pretty low intensity, and mostly just plainly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth. It finishes off-dry, the generic fruitiness eking out the lingering malt and wanly spiciness.

I hate to say it, but this is a bit of an underwhelming affair, the various components all present and accounted for, but not really standing out. Easy to drink, sure, however far from memorable.

A one of a kind wheat beer brewed by Monks in Holland! Pours a bright yellow haze, with a thick frothy white head that bubbled like champagne.
The aroma was like a sweet bouquet of fresh flowers combined with hints of lemon zest.
At 5.5% the taste was very light, consisting of of a tart lemon barley like flavour that evened itself out with a delicate finish of toasted bread.
Overall, a lovely thirst quenching beer that goes down a treat. Although The Froth Doctor prefers his wheat beers dominated by the exciting flavours of herbs & fruit.

Review acoording to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 16A). Bottle 33cl - Batch K10A14. AROMA: sweet and subtle cereal background. moderate coriander with moderate citrusy notes. hop aromas very subtle to none. APPEARANCE: very pale straw/hay color. very clear. dense white head with good retention. TASTE: predominant herbal hop flavour balanced with citrusy character. and a mild wheat background. low hop bitterness that doesnt linger. PALATE: medium-light to light body, a bit on the watery/thin side. finishes not very dry and without tartness. Very effervescent and highly carbonated. no astringency. OVERALL: altough refreshing and very drinkable, an average wit.
