Flaska. Skriver som föregående, detta smakar och doftar mer som en lager med viss veteinslag, än som en veteöl. Emellertid finns det en lätt, och trevlig, sötma och krispighet i smaken som lyfter den över lagerträsket, och som gör att det faktiskt till slut, i smaken, bara i smaken, påminner om en veteöl. Till slut.

Cusqueña beers don’t fit too well in typical styles. This is a wheat beer, but it is more like a lager, grainy, but with hints of wheat and a little bit sweet. Smells more like a lager too. It has medium body and it is very drinkable, not like a weissbier or an American wheat, but it is better than any american style lager.

Cerveja leve, sabor bem leve de trigo, se nao fosse a coloração e o visual turvo, daria até para se enganar com outro estilo de cerveja, pelo sabor fraco do trigo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Até que fez uma bela espuma no copo, porém sem aroma e com sabor um pouco doce, mas sem presença. Achei fraca demais. Uma versão de trigo para as american lagers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle - a restaurant in Ollantaytambo, Peru. Poured a hazy yellow with a creamy, lasting and lacing one-finger white head. A gentle incline from the standard in that the bar characteristics of Cusquena are present with additional, but subtle, notes of lemon, wheat, esters and spice. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation, a crisp and fresh mouth feel finishing soft and lightly bitter.

Minderbinder (2147) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle 330ml. Pours blond/whitish with low white head. Aroma is of citrus, malt. Taste is of citrus, malt, sweetness, wheat. Palate: Ligth body. Overall: This one is more fair than I would have thought. A tad cloying, but not too bad.

Lubiere (10613) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
A hazed golden wheat beer with a thin white head. In aroma, faint fruity malt with light mineral notes. In mouth, a light fruity wheat beer, with light banana esters, so-so.

Bottle at Dragon’s Palate in Cusco. Nondescript aroma with no discernible wheat aspect. Hazy gold body with nice whispy white head. Serviced ice cold. I detect a hint of hops!! Label says "limited edition" but menu said available as a seasonal Jan-May. Really nice flavor. Some wheat comes through in the flavor. A pleasant surprise. I also like the fact that the bottle and the Cusquena glass it was served in have relief impressions of the ancient Inca stone walls that are ubiquetous in Cusco.

620ml, from Wong supermarket, Peru. Nice fresh aroma of citrus, cereal and herbs. notes of Banana hints at a fruity taste. Nice opaque white robe of Belgian whites, medium carbonation creating a nice light neck that lasts (not very long, but does not disappear in 5min!). Medium sweet, a little bitter taste, medium body,with a creamy texture. A nice long refreshing finish. This is by far my favourite beer from this brewery and a great white from a mass consumption beer. Only available during south american summer.

330mL found in a hole in the wall store in Salinas (the salt plains in the Sacred Valley outside Cusco, Peru). There is a little convenience store here that sells artisanal salt mostly to Japanese tourists. They have Cusquena de Trigo (wheat). I never saw it anywhere else in Peru. The pour is a fully hazy bright yellow with a massive, bright white head. Huge retention and big sheety lace. Looks like sediment at the bottom. Definitely unfiltered and looks like it was bottle refermented. Nose is candy corn, sugar, sickly grain. Taste is sweet, sugar, lemon, bland overall with some "sting" of sharp cereal grain. Soapy palate. Not much bread, dough, or density. As it warms it gains sourdough and loses metallic flavors. Very small banana and dough component. Ends up being pretty refreshing and fuller in body. Not bad. Definite something worth seeking out to get away from all the lagers.
