Pint on tap at a Calgary pub (World Bier Haus 1600). Very pale straw color with a decent amount of fizzy white head, two fingers or so. Extra white indeed. Aroma is understated yet rather unique; I am getting citrus rind (lemon, orange), peppery spice, pineapple, and a faint but distinct funk (cheese? Burlap?). Palate belies the pallid appearance, flavorsome with lemon-lime citrus front and center and a backdrop that recalls orange spice tea. The tropical pineapple note from the nose translates onto the tongue as well, along with some bubble gum and clove yeast effects (but do not think hefeweizen ... This is Belgian through and through). Extremely smooth and drinkable, light bodied and fizzy but still classy and subtle. Finishes crisp and dry. For some reason I am inclined to compare this to Shock Top (?!), like the latter in terms of flavor profile but stripped of any macro-brewed banality. I appreciate the lurking Belgian funk note.

Extra light yellow straw and wheat color. Thin white foam ring. Thin mellow yeast and wheat smell with a touch of Brie. Has a candy like sweetness at the beginning of the taste. Limoncello notes. Mild yeasty esters finish. Really refreshing wheat beer after a hot summer day outside.

Bought at 'Meny' in Trondheim, Norway. 330 ml bottle, and has a lower abv of 4,7% than the original at 5%.

For a beer it's very white, nice head with small bubbles. Hazy. Smells of banana and clove, some sitrus fruits, bready yeast. Taste profile is the same, starts off with a soft interplay between the fruity and spicy (primarily cloves) before the cloves takes over. Finish seems a bit sweet at first, but transitions into dryness. Where this beer goes wrong is mouthfeel - it's a little bit undercarbonated and the body is too light for my taste.
