Pours a cloudy amber color with a small, froth head.

Smells of papaya juice, carrots, lime zest and passion fruit, together with white wine grapes and absolutely no malts to speak of.

Has an amazingly soft mouthfeel, which turns sparkly effervescent during the finish with a medium mouthfeel, revealing a surprisingly present malt backbone.

Tastes of blood oranges and pomelo, finding an immediate toffee and white bread dough coating. Flavors remain the same till the finish, with a hint of prickly kiwi and peach, adding to the complexity. Finishes thirstquenchingly refreshing with a dry lemon bitterness, evolving from the maintaining exotic fruits and a whole grain bread quality.

Aromas differ quite a bit from the beer's flavors. While they're both convincing on themselves, they do not interact well together. While being bright and juicy on the nose, the flavors branch out into a dry maltiness.
