3.55/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a simple yet nice looking slightly hazed golden colour with a tiny head that leaves (surprisingly) nary a mark on the glass.

The aroma is candy sweet with some bubble gum specifically coming out toward the front, along with some slight lemon notes and a fair amount of wheat as well. Perhaps a bit of banana mixing with the bubble gum and a good amount of yeast is in the mix here as well.

Flavour is a tamer version of the aroma. Bubble gum is certainly more muted here as are the banana notes. General wheat flavours come out a bit more here and the sweetness doesn't' really hit you until the finish of each sip. I'd say lemon might break through a bit more here than in the aroma. Balanced overall. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a bit of a carbonation kick to it, yet is a bit thin at times.

I liked this one, but didn't love it. It's an easy drinking summer session beer for sure. I wish the aroma was duplicated a bit better in the flavour, although said flavour was still pretty good nonetheless.

3.89/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours clear and pale gold with a white head. A relatively quick fade leave a bit of lace. Smell lovely with melon and light bubble gum notes. A light bit of wheat and yeast. Taste is bang on with a wheat graininess and Belgian wit level of of fruitiness. A touch of hefe like banana and clove subtly flowing. Bubble gum with sweet light malt. Finish is crisp and mild characterized by a lemony zestiness. Smooth carbonation and lighter body make this a superb summer quaffer. This is the ultimate lawn mower beer and stands head and shoulders above the usual fare. Low abv makes this a no brainer when you are busy and thirsty.

3/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Straw yellow with minimal head and lacing.

Smell - Wheat, minor hop aroma, Some yeasts and spices. Rather light on the nose.

Taste - First sip is wheat with some minor floral fruits and a little orange, lemon and coriander spice flavor. A little bready and grainy but not much else going on.

Mouthfeel - Very light, tongue gets wheat, some fruits, palate gets spices, some sugars and grainy/bready malts. Aftertaste is a bit watery and wheat influenced.

Overall - Rather weak and bland. Super easy to drink but minimal flavors, combined with the expensive price tag, this is nothing id ever buy again, nor really care to drink again.
