Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a clear very light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat and citrus. The flavor is wheat with a tad bit of orange. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not much going on in this beer. Not bad, just not too good.

At a beer tasting at my place this was the third beer we tasted.

A - A bit off color for a white, more orange. With a tiny head.

S - Yeast and a bit sour.

T - Nice fresh but light. Maybe the setting wasn't ok. You should drink wen its hot.

M- nothing spectacular there.

O - I expected a bit more than what we got. Drinkable but no kick.

An orange, amber beer, pretty hazy and a small head that clings to the glass in fine lace.

Smell is yeasty and a little estery like a good wit. Strong hints of orange and some coriander. The generous amount of yeast in my glass makes the beer smell a bit like stock.

Taste has charactistics of wheat, orange and an orangy spiciness. The orange tastes like orange juice was used. Nice and smooth citric. Mouthfeel is a little sweet and fits the style. Drinkability is OK.

BB 10-06. Nice white head, pale golden beer with litle haze and lively bubles. Nose is mostly koreander and in the back orange. Hard to find any (wheat)maltyness and IMO overparfumed but not bad. Taste shows wheatdryness, koreander spicyness and quiet some yeasttaste making the brew hanging bitter and hurting mouthfeel that is unbalanced and edgy perfumed and yeastbitter. Still a drinkable brew and can imagine drinking this absolutly fresh as a nice brew. Have to check this just opened brewery/grand cafe out.

We had a grand beertasting a few days ago thanks to Mar02x. A new BA member with a great mind on beer.

This was the third bottle we started with.

Poured in a mormal winelike glass.

Yellow cloudy fluid with a bit head and no carbonation. This is a very flat whitebeer to be honest, the yeasttones are not very noticable.

Deep and hazy orange colour, smell of tangerine and orange pell (no coriander, possibly it's not even there, but I'm not holding that against it), taste on the bitter side, lots of citrusy flavours (again orange peel), mouthfull rich and very satisfying. Carbonization good. Sadly, underrated. One of my favourite wheat beers.
