A – Hazy off yellow orange with thick creamy foam head that dies off to a covering leaving heavy lace in the glass as you drink. In short a very good looking beer.

S – Really great wheat and lemon aroma with a slight musty smell like a potato and grain store. Also there are some sweet notes with a little bite almost like sour bubble gum or Gin and tonic.

T – This one taste like a pretty straight up wheat beer! There is lemon citrus aided by the slice of lemon they stick in the glass whether you want it or not. Good musty wheat malts with earthy sand and biscuit flavours a sweet edge like bubble gum and leafy freshness. So, this all follows the nose pretty well.

MF – Very creamy and smooth with a tiny hint of alcohol tingle and a slightly sulphur like nip which all adds up to a good coating after you’re done.

O – This one is very drinkable but then again so is water. I’m not being mean here! I’m just pointing out this beer has good enough flavour but it is not as exciting as you might hope for. In my opinion wheat beer is gardening or fishing beer! It is refreshing and goes down easy but it is not very exciting.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.09):
Cloudy golden yellow with a 1cm foamy white head that holds for about a minute before slowly reducing in size to leave a fairly thick lacing covering the surface.

Sweet and fruity with some citrus and a few floral notes along with a banana smell and some bubblegum. Some wheat, orange, coriander and some spice also feature in the mix with the fruity aroma coming out on top.

Fruity with a mix of wheat, some yeast and banana along with some bubblegum and orange peel too. There was some light lemon and a pleasant tang to the taste that goes down well.

Smooth with a light medium body but thankfully not thin or watery. There is a very faint hint of sweetness from the fruits but the citrus comes out stronger and masks this for the most part. Carbonation is light medium and the beer is quite easy to drink.

Fairly simple taste and not overly complex but it still has a very nice tasting that goes down quite well and is refreshing too. It's not one of the better witbiers that I've had lately but it was still a nice offering that reminded me a little of Blue Moon although it also seemed more hefeweizen that witbier in places.

Poured from a 300 ml bottle.

Colour is yellow, very very hazy,. It pours a one-finger head that quickly disappears, leaving only some foam around the surface of the beer.
Aroma is of fruits and bubblegum.
Nice refreshing taste, only as bitter as needed.
Medium carbonated, medium thin bodied.

Served on-tap into a 30cl Korenwolf generic glass at Cafe Samson in Nijmegen, Holland. The Cafe Samson menu claims it's 5.00%, but I won't bother submitting an ABV update unless I have a bottle that clearly shows a different ABV than the site. Paired with some dorito-esque crisps with a white sauce. Reviewed live.

A: Two finger head is thin, largely lacking in cream, and of average retention (about three minutes). Colour is a cloudy murky dirty yellow.

Sm: Cream, orange peel, lemon, other assorted light fruit esters on the fringe, butterscotch, and full barley. No malt pulls through. A scent of moderate strength. Appealing.

T: Dirty orange peel, fringe fruit esters that don't ring distinctly and can't be identified, and full barley. It's a bit underwhelming, especially for the style. I expected a refreshing beer. Not complex or bold. Balanced well but built poorly.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Complements the flavours of the body.

Dr: Very easy to drink, but the quality isn't there. The relatively high ABV (if it is indeed 6%) is well disguised. At three quid for 30cl, I wouldn't have it again.
