A – Cloudy amber colour, very little head dissipates almost immediately. No lacing.
S – Floral, subtle citrus. Mild hops.
M – Light, with less carbonation than expected.
T – Hops not at the forefront. Drier than expected. Similar floral notes to nose.
O – Underwhelming at first, but grows on you. May buy again.

Hazy golden colour with slight head. Aroma is of a grassy/piney smell with citrus leaking through. The citrus comes out even more in taste. This is a very good wit beer that goes down easy, maybe a little to easy, because the 22 oz's I poured into my trusty glass mug went pretty quick.

Nose of wheat with a hint of orange and coriander. Clean crisp, light body with a bready, fresh wheat taste and mild carbonation. Spices are balanced and subtle. A solid, refreshing wheat I could drink in any weather. An enjoyable representation of the style.

Unsure why this gets so low of ratings.

The feel, namely the carbonation is a bit off (low), but the taste and smell of the beer are a great example of the style. While its no award winner, its a solid Wit that should be given a shot, and great for a hot day.

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.
