4/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden with a solid white head, leaving spotted lacing.

Smells of gentle, but very present hops, grass, floral herbs and light clorophyll, with a light biscuity malt precense in the back.

Taste is quite gentle, with more fruits in it than expected from the nose, except the hops I get an almost creme brulé-orange, that seamlessly melts in with the hops, great!

Mouthfeel is refreshing and the carbonation is just right.

3.93/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

The colour is deep gold, the liquid is clear. The three finger head is airy and off-white. It is topped by an elegant crater. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is fresh and hoppy in a British way. Hints of mixed fresh fruits, some bitterness and a touch of cream crackers.

The taste is British indeed. Flowery hops, some chalk, a light wheat sourness, some roasted hints of nuts. The aftertaste is lightly bitter with touches of dough, flowers and rice. The finish is light with some clean bitter flavours.

The carbonation is mild to medium; the small bubbles are mild. The liquid is light, but not watery.

A refreshing summer ale.

2.76/5  rDev -24.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A brass colored clear brew, a white head that settles slowly and leaves some lacing.

The smell is mostly citric, lemon and grape, some floral notes, a 7-up mixed with alka-selzer feeling is noted.

Tasting first of raw sugar, some wheat breaad, then a quick sour note and a lasting but rather alkaloid bitterness. A bit uneven.

Medium carbonation, once more the soda feeling, but with a dry finish.

Two notes; where did the wheat go? And an unbalanced feeling.

Bottle is 50 cl brown long-necked. The blue and white label's got a picture of a summer sun.

A: Pours slight hazy deep golden with hints of copper. The large white head is really creamy. Dissipation leaves almost no lacings.

S: Butter and caramel malt. Fruits; green apples, some bananas and citric notes. Both floral and bitter hops, a bit piney.

T: Butter and bitter hops up front, but then there's also lots of fruits; green apples, bananas and grapefruit. Caramell malt.

M: Body is a bit thinner than I expected. Carbonation is mild. Short aftertaste that holds dry buttery bitterness.

D: Nice beer, but a bit to thin for my taste. The short aftertaste also held back the rating.
