Clear, yellow/orange. White head, constantly reinforced by small bubbles. Aroma is yeast, citrus, sweet malt, cleaning product, ash (?), a little ripe banana. Makes me think of a tripel. Nice! Taste is quite balanced with a small sweetness and bitterness. Heavily carbonated, kind of watery on the palate.

A cloudy light amber coloured beer with a mighty white head that stays for quite a while. The aroma i get is a floral, grassy smell with a fruity, malty taste with some spice.The mouthfeel would be medium with lively carbonation..i also find it has a dry finish. A great easy drinking beer.
