Really subtle, citrus tasting beer, not too gassy. I was pleasantly surprised by the lingering taste. Definitely buying more.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a huge pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet malt base with light fruity ester. Taste is a nice enough mix between some lightly sweet Belgian malt with a nice subtle touch of fruity ester and no discernible hops. Body is about average with great carbonation. Easily drinkable and very refreshing though limited complexity.

A golden, yellow beer with a fine lacey head.

A fruity smell with lots of exotic fruits and some grapes. Some solventy smells and a good dose of hop aroma.

Taste is fresh and fruity. The taste appears to be dominated by the Anker yeast, which adds an estery profile, which reminds me most of pears, grapes, mango and general exotic fruit. It goes towards the yeast profile of a strong pale ale like Duvel. The hops are quite aromatic and combine very well with the yeast profile.
