Light golden colour with a one finger white head, which disappears very fast. Medium carbonation.

Smell is citrus, lemon, coriander, wheat malt and some spiciness.

Taste is wheat and coriander and the finish is pretty spicey and dry. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Drinkability is quite high, although compared to german Hefeweizen the tastes are more rough in this one, but still a good session beer.

A: Pale cloudy yellow colour with a frothy white head.

S: Wheat, lemon, some breadiness.

T: Lots of lemon and clove, some pepper and coriander - slightly tart.

M: Thin-bodied, but very refreshing thanks to the active carbonation.

I always enjoy this, though it's slightly reminiscent of drinking lemonade - simple and pleasing, but nothing outstanding.
