340ml Bottle from Chinatown Food Centre, Singapore (SGD$9):
Pale orange to yellow straw colour with a thin, bubbly white head on top that fades fast.

Mango followed by a nice orange aroma and some pineapple too. There is some wheat, a little clove and various spices with a light but pleasantly tropical aroma overall.

Mango, pineapple and some tropical fruits with some wheat make up the initial taste. There is some strong fruits coming through as well and a lot of orange with some clove right at the end.

Smooth with moderate carbonation, a nice citrus tang and a light mouthfeel. The beer is easy to drink, especially in the tropical heat and is very refreshing.

Not a bad beer at all and certainly the best Asian beer I've tried in a while, possible the best ever. This one is very refreshing and easy to drink with a great tropical taste although it is probably not on a par with some of the better American craft beers out there but it is a good one nonetheless and certainly a marked improvement on the usual pale lagers that you find in the region.

A: Yellow with a hint of amber. Over a finger of head at pour. Some lacing on glass.

S: Fresh wheat smell with a good dose of citrus present.

T: Sweet - definite presence of orange and accentuated by mango (not your mainstream wheat).

M: Light, head disappates somewhat quickly and flattens a bit.

O: Refreshing for hot/humid Singapore weather.
