2.9/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Picked this up when my beerstop started carrying it.

Pours a beautiful golden with 3 fingers of solid off-white head. Retention is poor, lacing is minor.

Smells of alcohol and weak grains.

Taste is very sharp and dry. Light wheat blends with cereal grain, mild hop bitterness with some citrus spice.

Mouthfeel is, again, sharp and dry. This could be refreshing if the taste wasn't so weak. Light bodied with way to much carbonation.

Drinkability is low. I finished the beer but I won't drink it again and even with proper pairing I don't think I could enjoy this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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 -0.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

3.5/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle poured into a mug by freshness date.

A:
Clear bright gold color with some hint of copper hue, the pour produces thick white billowy head with good retention. The head gradually dissipates to thin foamy long-lasting layer and yields some lacing patches, medium carbonation.

S:
Fruity aroma mainly dominates; peach, plum, banana, apple, along with honey, some bread malt and bitter hop.

T:
The aforementioned fruits in its aroma still play on front row with a mixture of slight bitterness from hop and pinch of tartness, sourness in the aftertaste.

M:
The body is light to medium, smooth mouthfeel with good crispness from proper carbonation, dry finish.

O:
Pretty good brew, stable and balance, I didn’t disappoint giving it a try, worthy.
