Very different style from what I usually drink, but this was a pleasant change of pace. It was very clean and looked like a Pilsner. The foamy head was white and creamy. The taste threw me. It has the taste of a almost creamy wheat beer that you would normally expect to be cloudy and unfiltered. This was a great taste. Creamy and had a lot of fruit notes. Very refreshing and I would suggest trying this in the warmer months.

Hugely foamy and effervescent head. Almost no aroma; no after-taste and practically no finish. Flavor is crisp with mild esters.

Oh and yes. Totally see-through.

From the bottle into a tulip glass.
This is a really unique, well-made beer, a home run. As advertised, crystal clear and golden, yet packed with huge flavor. It pours a brilliant white head that stays around throughout. The yeast is the ticket here, yielding a big bold aroma like a bouquet of sweet fresh cut flowers. Slightly fruity, with a bit of hop bite. Maybe it would be better if slightly more crisp and hoppy. Yet as it stands, I'll definitely seek this out again.
