2.25/5  rDev -29%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Poured from a bottle into an Irish pub style (real) pint glass in low altitude, Galway, Ireland, on September 17th, 2010. Pours a clear orange-gold colour with a three finger head that dies to next-to-nothing in a minute and a half. The head is of mild thickness but little cream.

Smell: A nasty scent of foul citrus. There's something wrong here. A bit of a hoppy smell comes through, but barely. I'm hesitant to try this beer.

Taste: A lopsided body with a lackluster finish. All of the flavor hits the tongue towards the back. Complete lack of balance. The note that is there isn't horrible, kind of an off piney/citrus taste, like a recently spoiled orange bled into wheat.

Mouthfeel: Unbalanced and wet until the finish. There is a bit of nice crispness at the end of each sip, which I'd like to see extended into the remainder of the beer.

As a wheat beer, this fails. I like the idea of a wheat beer hybridized with a crisp hint of fruit, but it just isn't working as it is. Steer clear of this one if you're after a good wheat beer. I won't be having another.

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.

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.
