Insipid pale yellow. Little head, no carbonation.

Massive toffee on the nose. It's like they've way overdone it with Belgian candy sugar or something. It's almost revoltingly sweet, with no other aromas.

The taste however is almost non-existent. Hint of pale yeast, but otherwise it tastes like mineral water. The mouthfeel is weak, although you could slam a few of these and you wouldn't even notice it.

Not a fan.

Quite a sweet aroma with lots of candy/honey like malt. I get a hint of fruitiness too. On the whole it smells a bit like unfermented wort.

It is a crystal clear straw colour with a hint of gold. No head.

What the heck? This tastes like a combination of honey, wheat, oranges and water. Way off what this should be.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. At least the mouthfeel is okay.

This isn't great. Lots of sweetness, no really appropriate flavour. i don't know what's gone wrong here but something has. Next time I'll stick to the decent wines from the brewery's sister winery, Vintara.

Light ambery colour, medium-thick head, dissipates slowly.

Very honey characteristics on nose, sticky and toffee, smells frankly too sweet for my liking.

Tastes sort of like the nose, only not as strong. It's not very impressive - it's sweet-ish, but not all that flavoursome. There is a sweet kick on the front palatte but then it just runs away as though the sweetness scares away any other flavours. I could respect this beer if it tasted as strong as the nose, but I can't because it don't. Sadly I can't really like it, either. Also because I don't.
