The beer is clouded brass colored, small vivid bubbles form a thick head that settles a bit unevenly, leaving some lacing.

The smell is sweet lemon, lemonade-like. Grape-fruit, fresh flowers.

A fruity sweetness upfront, nearly dextrose, lime and bitter oranges, and then more and more bitterness. Nice.

Medium low carbonation, fresh and watery but a good ry finish.

I do like this, could have fooled me as being a (good) american wheat beer.

The first thing that comes to mind when i look as this beer is witbier. The liquid is pale and hazy and the massive 3 - 4 finger head fades to form a solid lid.

I smell citrus, bread, peach, rice... It's a dry touch to it. As strange as this might sound, the smell is very well balanced.

Dry grass and citrus hits your tongue as first. The sweetness feels very exotic. I think there's more to it than peach, but i'm not sure what it is. The aftertaste is dry and bitter. Unfortunately the taste isn't as well balanced as the smell is.

I really enjoy the feel of this beer. It's creamy and yet it has a dry feel to it. Very nice indeed.

This beer goes down very easily, it's a smooth pleasent ride.
