I enjoyed this much more than I was anticipating. A very pleasant white wine taste, tasted like a 70/30 wine to beer as dominant characteristic. Very smooth, very mild. Not overly sweet, I quite enjoyed it.

Flavour of grapes, other fruit, yeast and pale malt. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Average to medium bodied. Not great, just O.K.

Koskela (224) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 11, 2013
A sour citriusy aroma comes from this clear blonde beer with a a little white head. Its a medium body with a hint of grape flavor in a crisp tart/sour taste. A good hint of each make up a refreshing brew. Worth the $15.

Psytron (1151) - Turku, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2013
Smell of malt, maize, grain, coriander. Very pale golden colour, white head. Sour, slightly salty. Faint of sweetness due to strength. Aroma of white wine, apple, rubber, earth and leaves. Flat but plentiful carbon.

spacemonster (72) - Igo, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
man Iím sorry but I just donít get/like this thing. pours a really lovely light golden/yellow. Taste just confoundedly perplexing. Taste like a sour but the whole package taste wise is a miss for me. Poured half the bottle down the drain. cant understand the high marks. Oh well. Thats what makes beer great, we all find different things good/bad. This was a clear miss for me.
