Pretty basic wheat ale. Basic light aroma of citrus zest and just a bit of spice. Flavor follows the aroma well, but again, a little on the light side. Palate is pleasant, soft, and lightly effervescent. Overall, good and fairly balanced, but really nothing all that special.

Pours a cloudy, murky orange color. Lots of little flecks floating in there. Nicely carbonated, the flecks are swirling around nicely. About two finger thick, firm white head. Light retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is wheat, yeast. Maybe a little coriander. Orange juice.

Taste is bright, light orange and orange zest. Yeasty and wheaty. Maybe some light earthy hops. It’s leaning sweet, not bitter. A little spicy from coriander. It’s not super flavorful, but pleasant tasting.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. It has a creamy and smooth taste. This is 5.8%, no way....There is some spiciness in the finish, I’m thinking it may be from hops, not sure.

Overall, it’s pretty good. Keeps you guessing, sweet, mildly spicy. I don’t know if I’d call it a session beer, because of the ABV, but man, it’s good. Yeah, I would buy this again. I would also recommend this one.

Can from Kihoskh in Copenhagen. Fruity smell. Fruity smell with some bready malts. Feels like the hops has faded in this one, still drinkable though.

kaserov (108) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 23, 2016
Color amarillo plátano con capa de espuma blanca de menos de un dedo de grosor. Carbonatación media tirando a alta. Restos de levadura/sedimentos/especias (diría lo último), altamente concentrados en el poso de la lata. Tan concentrados que cuando eché las últimas gotas el color amarillo pasó a ser blanco. Más bien parecía leche. No es algo que me eche para atrás, solo lo comento de pasada, para navegantes. El aroma es, en cierto modo, distinto al sabor y más pronunciado: trigo, especias. No capto malta y no capto lúpulo. El sabor es una variación del aroma, sin arriesgar. Sabe a trigo, de nuevo, a especias (no sé si cilantro), pero no capto lúpulo alguno. Unidimensional, refrescante y para de contar. No suelo hablar de precios, pero en este caso haber pagado 5 euros por algo tan plano (y viniendo de Bells) me hace recapacitar por enésima vez sobre mis gustos y los gustos de los demás. No voy a mentir, me la bebí entera porque costó lo que costó, pero es una total decepción.

Lilja (2667) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2016
Burk från Mikkellers webbshop. Smak och doft av humle, jäst, vete, citrus, apelsin ohc persika. Lätt kropp och beska, fin sötma, mjuk och juiceig känsla, beska med smak av citrus- och apelsinskal. Gott!

George999 (374) - Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2016
From the bottle, pour is cloudy with sediment floating in the beer, the color is orange with a thick slightly off white head that lingures. The aroma is yeast, a little coriander and bread. The taste is malty, bread and raw wheat. There is a citrus note present reminiscent of lemon peal, but not very strong. The mouthfeel is thin, and the finish is malt.

Cloudy light orange with little head and minimal carbonation. Very sweet with some orange sherbet. Ok for a wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can:
Pours muddy orange with a small, rocky head. Aroma is grains, yeast and orange peels. Somewhat sharp mouth feel. Dry, yeasty and wheaty flavour with notes of citrus and grass.
Not exactly exciting, but quite refreshing.
