look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The liquid is cloudy, the colour beige-pink. The finger thick head is pale beige with a tint of red. It sinks slowly, leaving very little lacing.

The smell is wheat-sour with some dry fruity notes, mostly of raspberries. Some spicy hints in the background.

The taste got an interesting sour blend of flavours from the wheat and the raspberries. Some fruity notes of elderberries/elderflowers, too. I expected quite a sweet brew when I read the ingredients list, but it is actually quite dry and a bit tart. The aftertaste got some bitter hints, notes of spices and raspberries. It is quite light and short, but at the same time very pleasant.

The carbonation is medium to strong; the many small bubbles fresh. The liquid is a bit smooth and a little sticky.

An interesting take on the wit style with a refreshing sourness. Maybe a bit simple at times. Recommended for desserts.

Pours hazy red orange with large frothy head that fades to thin, but dense layer that stays till the end of the glass. Aroma is weak, but pleasant lemony wheat, a little bit sourish.

Taste is fresh citrus fruit, mild spicy wheat, some yeast with sweetish fruity aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light-medium with prickly carbonation.

Overall, quite a good one, very enjoyable and highly drinkable, I finished the 750ml bottle in no time.
