Poured into snifter.
Pours clear golden beer with thin head, skinny ring on a top. Aroma is yeasty and fruity, lollipop. Taste is clean and excellent, dry, wheat, not alcoholic. Medium-bodied beer with good carbonation. Ok for summer,but not in common.

330mL bottle, best before date of Oct 2014. poured into a tulip glass.

A - clear, copper, pours a thin white frothy head that fades into a thin 4mm lacing.

S - sweet, fruity (banana and mandarin) aroma with some malts and honey. Subtle, but distinct.

T - sweet, grass-like yeasty flavours surrounded by malts and a hint of cloves. Mixes with a slight sourness towards the end. Bitter hoppy aftertaste, although alcohol is muted. A bit different - nothing too strong in the flavour area, but it goes go down well.

M - Light body, oily texture, moderate carbonation for this style, slightly metallic finish.

O - pretty good, I enjoyed the sour kick to the intense sweetness. nothing too outrageous here, either good or bad. the alcohol is well hidden (which is good for me). Overall this goes down very well, but nothing in here to excite. I would definitely try again, if the price suits.
