look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Best before June 17, 2014. So.... not super fresh.

Appearance: Hazy orange with some floaties.

Aroma: Ooh.. Sweet honey like malts, orange, apricot, sticky brown sugar, faint pine, light tropical fruits, very nice smelling beer.

Taste: Unbelievable. So refreshing but not light at all. Sweet honey, apricot, tangerine, some hop bitterness, light lemon.

Body: BIG creamy mouth feel as expected.

Overall: This has been described as a cross between a pale ale, a wheat beer and a cream ale. It's that hard to classify. But who cares anyway? It's freaking DELICIOUS. Highly Recommended. You wont be sorry.

lots of flavours coming through - beautifully balanced!

aroma: bready orange/grapefruit/pine

taste: light brown sugar, orange, orange peel, orange candy, grapefruit, bready malt, slight raisins and spice with a hint of smokiness. Loved the taste and balance of this beer.

very enjoyable, achieving it's aims of a sweet and bitter balance.

355ml can. Poured into snifter.

A: Looked like a Hefeweizen, amber very cloudy, medium head that
hung around quite a while, had floaters, lots of
lacing.

S: Lemon, cascade hop, hint of diacetyl.

T: Citrus fruits and wheat, yeasty, sweeter than a
pale ale, fruitier than a hefeweizen.

M: Creamy texture, minimal carbonation, very smooth.

O: As a fan of Pale Ales and a reluctant Weizenbier
drinker I’d say it combined the best of both beers.
