Extra light yellow straw and wheat color. Thin white foam ring. Thin mellow yeast and wheat smell with a touch of Brie. Has a candy like sweetness at the beginning of the taste. Limoncello notes. Mild yeasty esters finish. Really refreshing wheat beer after a hot summer day outside.

Bought at 'Meny' in Trondheim, Norway. 330 ml bottle, and has a lower abv of 4,7% than the original at 5%.

For a beer it's very white, nice head with small bubbles. Hazy. Smells of banana and clove, some sitrus fruits, bready yeast. Taste profile is the same, starts off with a soft interplay between the fruity and spicy (primarily cloves) before the cloves takes over. Finish seems a bit sweet at first, but transitions into dryness. Where this beer goes wrong is mouthfeel - it's a little bit undercarbonated and the body is too light for my taste.

16oz glass, a surprise find at MKT.

This beer appears a cloudy, pink-tinged pale straw colour, with the thinnest of thin caps of wispy lace, which leaves some attractive rocky promontory lace around the glass as things slowly bleed away.

It smells of semi-sweet wheat malt, orange citrus cream, savoury coriander, earthy yeast, and a bit of green vegetable astringency. The taste is still more or less sweet - not so crisp wheaty malt, muted white pepper and coriander spice, a hint of Certs menthol, and a fading acerbic yeastiness.

The bubbles are fairly underwhelming for the most part, the body medium-light in weight, and somewhat smooth, the yeast and edgy fruit mucking about a bit too much. It finishes off-dry, the sugary wheat carrying on, amongst a fading spice and yeast offset.

A simple witbier, to be sure - all the marks are hit, sure, but in a newbie-friendly, less than challenging manner. Easy enough to put back, but not something I could justify repeating over the course, of well, anything, especially today.
