Pours a clear, bright golden color. Smells of tropical and ripe, dark fruits. Not much else. Malty and fruity with a surprising hoppy finish. Crisp carbonation with a little tartness. Light to medium body. Interesting beer. I’ve never had anything quite like it. Must try this one again soon.

Sigmund (4811) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 15, 2014
500 ml bottle, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 4.3%. Clear golden colour,moderate to low head. Weak floral hops in the aroma, a hint of honey. The flavour has some citussy hops, and is quite refreshing (yes, I was thirsty), but otherwise rather bland and boring.

tomekk1978 (272) - POLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Barwa: złota, lekko zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i szybko zanikająca. Aromat: bardziej zbliżony do lagera niż piwa pszenicznego, a zatem słodowo- chmielowy. Brak bananów czy goździków. Smak: słodowy, umiarkowanie słodki z lekką chmielową kontrą. Goryczka zbyt wysoka, jak na pszeniczaka. Wyczuwalna także miodowa nuta, co może świadczyć o utlenieniu.

Leafs93 (1603) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Pours deeper gold with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel, wheat and spices I can’t quite pinpoint. Taste is sweet with light bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth. Somewhat off putting aftertaste, reminiscent of apple juice.

LarsEngen (346) - Sandvika, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2014
50 cl bottle from Brewery Int. Pours clear straw yellow with a medium, white head that leaves fast. weak aroma of caramel and some not so good fruits in the back. Flavour is light wheat with some caramel notes. Low carbonation, low bitterness, low on pretty much everyting. Just boring.

Grzesiek79 (2961) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Slabe, niestety sie zawiodlem. Za delikatne za malo wyraziste, za malo tresciwe, za mala pianka, za malo metne, za malo zapachowe.

Not bad but not the best ale you can find I suppose. Quite light and slightly bitter on palate

500 ml bottle. A clear golden body with a small white head. Light aroma of malt and soapy kind of spices. Flavor is sweet malt, slightly spicy and dloral with some kind of harsh bitterness. Plain, drinkable but not the best sample of a wheat and rather boring also.
