Clean golden pour, low white head, leaving just a few spots and a very thin lace.
Nice fruity smell, with green/yellow grape, apple juice, very mild orange zest, gooseberries, faint apricot. Touch of wheat.
Fresh bread dough and crisp lemon zest in the initial sip, developing into a sweeter citrus characteristic and some light orchard fruit notes. Nice grainy malts with rich fluffy wheat. The hops are a bit off in the finish, bit spicy, yes, but with a dry leafy bitterness that lingers a bit too much in the finish and pushes away all the fruitiness.
Medium body, prickly fizz, a bit buttery, fitting an American-style wheat.
Starts very promising but loses its appeal rather fast, so just ok, i guess.

Poured from a 11.2 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear, bright golden color. Smells of tropical and ripe, dark fruits. Not much else. Malty and fruity with a surprising hoppy finish. Crisp carbonation with a little tartness. Light to medium body. Nothing special, but an interesting beer. I’ve never had anything quite like it.

500 ml. bottle at Sir William´s pub, Ljubljana.
The aroma is slightly fruity & sweet. Looks like a pale ale, with a small head and no lace. The taste is sweet, slightly spicy and with light citric background. The carbonation is very soft.
This beer is a real disappointment for all wheat beer lovers especially for a beer from a brewery with such delightful products as their stout and the Irish Red are.

3.15/5  rDev -0.3%

Appearance: I't mostly golden with a little bit of brassy color. The head is light and foamy a bit like frothed milk.

Aroma: Grainy, lemon peel, light breadiness, twinge of grassy notes. Minor citrus notes.

Taste: A little bit sweet in the front on the lines of biscuitiness and a light buttery texture. Light grassy and grain, twinges of lemon and traces of rye.

Notes: It's decent good for a warm day. Cheers.
