Hmm, an American wheat beer? Apparently, this is one of the new beers in Systembolaget's "standard selection", and it might be a nice suprise for the summer to come. Or will it?

The beer pours a hazy orange/yellow color with a huge white head. Looks nice, but I don't think wheat beers in general look too nice.

Aroma holds some nice notes of green bananas, unmature apples and some spicy yeast notes. There are also some slightly bitter hops that balances all this fruitiness. Nice!

Taste is slightly less interesting than the smell. Otherwise it's quite similar to the smell with those earlier mentioned green bananas and green apples.

All and all, a very drinkable and refreshing beer!
