Had this beer in one of the pubs here in Hong Kong and really love the its taste and smell. I remember having 4 glasses of this beer while my friends switch to another brand. Unfortunately the pub where I had this beer no longer sells this as they need to import the brand directly to the US.

A very delicious beer that is both refreshing and also has significant flavor. Citrus is the unique taste that makes this beer different from the majority of other beers.

A: Slightly cloudy from being unfiltered. No serious flaws in appearance.

S: No off smells, but not overwhelming in smell either. Citrus is the most noticable smell I can get.

T: Citrus (lemon), light malts, slight amount of bitterness. To my taste, has a perfect blend of sweet, tart, and bitter.

M: Medium bodied

D: Outstanding drinkability, maintains refreshing qualities and some body at the same time.

Overall: Outstanding taste, refreshing, while maintaining some body and lots of flavor make this my favorite "refreshing" style beer.

Anybody who rates this below a 4 is crazy. This is one of the finest beers ever crafted. The only reason I don't score it a 5 is because it's a witbeir and I'm not particularly fond of them. But this great white, I could drink all night. Serve it with an orange slice.
