Light hazy, orange, smell hazy. Very aromatic citric character, well developed. Just enough bitterness, just enough malt backup. Accessible bit still flavourful, quite an achievement. Well carbonated. Well made. (At the De Molen tasting)

Flavour is mild sweet, citrus, grapefruit, sweet ripe fruits, a little earthy, light spicy grapefruit bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation. Nice.
