An awesome beer enjoyed in a warm late afternoon. Surprisingly easy to drink, it pays homage to it Belgian ingredient and style origins whilst bringing something inquire to the palate; will look to purchase several for a session as opposed to it standing apart amongst an international beer appreciation afternoon/evening

tadahster (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Lots of carbonation and a very dry head that is impossible to avoid. It also sticks around. Strong "white IPA" nose, with some aspirin, apple. You "taste" the carbonation, bitterness comes second, but lingers, apple stays but leaves before it overstays its welcome. Some white pepper.

A relatively mild wheat beer that is deceptively easy to consume. Notes of grapefruit underly the smooth wheat tones. Frangimus

not particularly wheatish compared to what you’d expect from a german beer, and quite a bit more hoppy. very refreshing though.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a light golden with a frothy white head. Lively carbonation! Too much carbonation though. Aromas of sweet fruit, Belgium yeast and banana bread. Quite a solid hop presence! Taste is a bit muddled by the carbonation. Acidic fruits and banana yeasty malts in there too. Flavours explode a bit too much for me. But I don't mind it overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
