The colour is gold-amber; the 1½ head is warm white.

The light and fresh smell got notes of fruits, butter and a quite American hoppy bitterness.

The refreshing taste got mild yeasty flavours, some wood and interesting notes of canned exotic fruits and puff pastry. The aftertaste is fresh with a nice hoppy flavour with some lime/lemon and white bread.

The carbonation is fresh and medium strong; the liquid is a bit light.

A very refreshing spring beer with an American touch. But is it really 7,3%? I have asked the brewery.
