A 500 ml bottle into my Sisson's weiss glass. A beautiful golden orange liquid clouded with yeast. A massive head rises up to three fingers and sits gently, receding to a bubbly blanket after a while. Active carbonation streams up and keeps it so while streaks of lacing decorate my glass.

Smell is fragrant and luxurious. Lemon and clove, bananas and yeast esters. Sweet wheat malt and apples. A touch of bubblegum and light fruits.

Taste is as good as it gets. Big lemon and wheat malt upfront. Banana and clove follows. Light grapeyness and spicy peppery notes. A dry clean finish the is gently hopped and barely bitter. A trace of alcohol. Light toast on the tongue remains.

Mouthfeel is perfectly summery light and bubbly. Not quite creamy but very smooth on the mouth as you just want more and more.

More and more is the way I would describe the drinkability. The abv is low enough to have quite a few and the experience will make a bad day good, a good day great!

Pours a cloudy yellow with shades of gold. Forms a very nice head which very slowly dissipates leaving some very nice lacing.

Very nice mixture of wheat and citrus, lemon stands out.

Well balanced flavours of wheat and lemon. Incredibly easy drinking and flavourful.

Smooth bordering on creamy, medium carbonation with a very smooth finish.

Very nice for a lighter beer, complex while very enjoyable and refreshing.
