3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle [250ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy, bubbly, very pale yellow with an average size foamy white head. Slightly sweet aroma of wheat, yeast, herbs, fruit and spices -- something a touch odd about the aroma to me. Flavour’s a bit watery but somewhat refreshing, it’s yeasty and herbal along with spices and citrus. Average bodied. A simple beer but it’s an easy to drink Summer beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
275ml bottle shared with blankboy and garthicus, muled from Europe by my pal Austin - thanks!! Kind of wimpy-looking, very pale yellow, quite cloudy, nice huge white fluffy lasting head (3- on balance). Odd perfume/floral aroma, pungent, spicy - sort of sweet ... I suppose coriander, but orange? No, more like urinal cake. Taste ... hmmm, dry, papery, vaguely spicy, weak coriander, no alcohol - soft, not too good. Slightly thick, still mouthfeel, fast-finishing. Not old, but kinda weak.

0.75l bottle from the Vrutak store in Zagreb, courtesy of heavy. I really thought I’d rated this before. Anyway, poured a cloudy pale yellow body. Dry dusty nose, sweet, coriander and light banana. Soft lemony taste, some coriander, perfumey. Bit too light but pleasant.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Bought a 33cl bottle @ Bottega della Birra (Arona). Lemon aroma, spiced by corriander. Delicate taste. A good wheat beer, very drinkable and fresh but imho a little bit overrated.

Bottle from "BelgaSörökHáza", Budapest.
Shows a hazy pale yellow colour with a nice and laceing head.
It smells citrus-fruity, grainy and of coriander.
It starts crisp, the flavour is of lemon or grapefruit, the texture is medium to thin.
The tart charactered middle part brings cereal and spicy aromas along, the finish is light tart, citric and dry.
Medium bodied brew, whichf after it got enough aired it got better.
