Beer is a clear golden/copper colour with a smallish white head.

Nose is hoppy, with citrus and tropical fruit sticking out. Grapefruit, orange, papaya. Quite a nice scent.

The hops are all there in the flavour as well, grapefruit being the standout. Moderately bitter. Crisp wheat flavours come out, which I didn't really detect in the nose. Finish is a bit soapy.

Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. A bit oily.

Overall, quite good. Nice beer indeed.

From the 330 ml. bottle no. 06696511856. Sampled on July 26, 2013.

It has a golden yellow pour and a significant foamy off-white head. The head fades but never disappears.

I enjoyed the aroma which covered a lot of ground with its pale malts, sweetness, resin, grass, and soapy esters.

The body falls into the medium range but it is so creamy it slides down my throat without a hitch.

Malty sweetness kicks off the taste experience and it is quickly overtaken by the earthiness along with some pear or maybe grapefruit flavors. Ends moderately dry. Easy to drink with a nice character. It is one I will remember.
