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

500ml bottle

Pours with a medium hue yellow body, fairly high levels of carbonation, whispy head which retains for a time

Very clear considering its a wheat beer

Smell is limited, but its yeasty and malty, dry, a little fruit but very minimal, reminds me of an extract brewed czech pilsner i made

Taste is dry and full of malt, doesnt go down easily and is a little dull, it really doesnt make u want another, over carbonated

Overall, really disappointing, this is another example of the theory that only the germans can make a good wheat

3.6/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

3.3/5  rDev +4.1%
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.

2.68/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
