From the bottle, it pours a hazy golden amber with a nice, fluffy head. Citrus and spice in the nose. The mouth enjoys the light malt and then lightly citrus flavor. Easy to drink! Enjoyable!

It is a lighter beer that has a skunky smell and is sweeter. A very different taste than I was expecting. First couple of sips I didn't like at all but it is growing on me.

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Cloudy pale yellow color with almost one finger of foamy white head that stays for a short while and collapses to only some bubble sheet along with not much amount of lace.

Wheat grain, lime, lemon rind, sweet honey, and some spice in a nose.

Grain forwards in the taste while lime and lemon peel provide their zesty tang shortly thereafter. Some spice closely follows while the end is all those aforesaid flavors mixed up together.

The body is light to medium with some crisp and lively carbonation generated semi-smooth mouthfeel through the palate, dry finish.

Not that bad, refreshing and easy to drink Wit but still a bit flat by overall.

Very nice appearance, with a pineapple juice colored body, and a fluffy white head of 2 fingers. Leaves wonderful skirted lace as it recedes.

Aroma is just heavenly. Canned peaches, with some apple and pear notes. A few tropical notes as well.

Flavor is a bit on the thin side, but the aftertaste is great. It goes some light wheat and grain notes, followed with fruit cocktail and peach. Some circus peanut on the finish, too.

Super, super carbonated...but you know what, it drinks so easy it's hard to knock it. I like it a lot.

Overall, I will probably be buying this often. I really enjoyed this, it's better than most people make it seem. A sleeper hit.

Has a sharp, piney smell and a cloudy look with lots of carbonation. Has a nice bready, fruity taste with a spicy finish...pretty tasty beer...I like it because its different from the American beers I usually drink...

My first review here...
Have to say, many reviewers have better language skills than I and described the complexities better than I could, and accurately.
I piked this beer up today because, as an old school typographer and ad man, I found the packaging to be beautifully done. I bought it with the expectation, based on the description, that my wife would really like it.
I was correct... and surprised. I love it, this stuff is beautiful!
Very clean and light feeling, nice blend of citrus flavors with high notes of peach, but real peach. No lingering aftertaste, no bitterness, very PLEASANT to quaff, refreshing to say the least. Great flavor, not "beery" or bitter (and I like IPA's).
I'm off to buy a case...
