3.88/5 rDev +2.4%
A 33cl can from a sampler box. Poured in a chalice (I know, I know).
Drinking this fridge cold.
A pale yellowish, hazy beer with a white head. Bad retention (because of the glass).
Smells like a wheatbeer that is for certain. Less intense than a German hefeweizen though. Still, wheat, some citrus and a tiny hint of spices.
Tastes pleasant. A nice fruity, hoppy flavour with a nice light grainy malt (wheat) profile.
Not a flavourbomb of course but that's not the purpose of this beer.
Nicely carbonated and it has a thin to medium mouthfeel.
This is a true summer's beer. At the moment it is not summer but it is nice regardless. Would love to have this ice cold on a terrace outside when it is really hot though.

3.4/5 rDev -10.3%
A: cloudy greenish-yellow, 2 finger head that dissipates quickly
S: strong lemon, metallic, can tell its a wheat beer, but not overwhelming
T: great crisp taste, lemon, bannana, grassy, taste like it smells - would taste good with an orange slice
M: decent balance, finishes dry, high carbonation (though i could use more), light, sessionable, would be a good summer beer
O: decent, but nothing to seek out, for the style I'd much prefer Ayinger's wheat beers

12oz bottle poured into a Kasteel chalice glass
Appearance- The color is a hazy straw yellow with very little white head that dissipates almost completely.
Smell- A distinct European malt with a lemon hop also shining through.
Taste- Lots of grassy malt flavor with a quick appearance by some citrus hop.
Mouthfeel- Definitly on the watery side.
Overall- This ia a beer that definitly needs the help of some citrus fruit.
