I saw a lots of good review about that beer so why not give it a try.
Very nice color. lots of carbonation a very nice look to it.
The smell is like banana or orange but I will say more like banana a little bit of citrus behind.
Very nice easy drinking definitely lots of carbonation.
U can feel the orange and the citrus behind after u taste it. Not bad at all.
If u are in North America is an alternative to all that Budweiser Molson or Coors Light if u are whiling to spend some extra money.
I definitely recommend for Summer or Autumn.
Give it a try if u haven t tried it. U won t be disappointed.

Poured from a bottle, hazy light yellow with fluffy white head and good lacing. Streams of tiny bubbles.

Aroma is banana, spicy cloves and citrus. Honey. Minimal hop aroma.

Taste is cloves, orange and coriander with clean, sweet malt backbone low hops and bitterness and clean, relatively dry finish.

Creamy mouthfeel with high carbonation and light body.

Overall a well-balanced, refreshing wheat beer. Prominent but well-balanced fruit and spices.
