4/5 rDev +5.5%
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.

4.5/5 rDev +18.7%
Had in a 75cl bottle (on numerous occasions recently):
It's easy to look for ways to mark this beer down because you kind of want to because it's so well known and common but, being totally fair and honest, it is an excellent wheat beer. The head is fluffy white, the colour is exactly what you would like to see in a wheat beer - cloudy and golden with streams of bubbles - and the smell and taste is smooth, inviting and rewarding. I imagine I could sit and drink this one after another until I fell over and enjoy every minute of it. It's a really delicious and enjoyable beer that's accessible for almost everyone. It's both an easy entry beer and a beer you'll want to return to.
