2.93/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

500ml bottle poured into an Erdinger Weiss glass.

Pours a pale yellow with a very slight haze. One finger of head, good retention due to the almost violent carbonation that pierces the brew. Fair amount of wet lace. Aroma is lightly floral with a hint of apple and banana, lots of bready, yeasty aroma, and a light vanilla aroma as well. Light hop spiciness as well. Subtle but enjoyable.

Taste is less remarkable. A bit wheaty with some peppery zest at first, light apple juice sweetness and a floral note. Lemon sourness with a VERY light bitterness in the finish. Watered down and very nearly flavourless. It's so subtle that it comes off as boring. Very watery in the mouth as well, extremely light body. Not much in the way of dryness in the finish, but is is a little sour. Carbonation is a lot lower than expected, contributing to the overall watery impression. Sessionable in spades I'm sure, but it's just too uninteresting to make me want another.

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.

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.
