From bottle. Pours cloudy amber-orange with slight head. Aroma has the wheat notes well with banana coming in mild. Taste is very mild, not sweet like a wit beer and the banana and cloves hit softly again at the end.

På flaska på wisers pub. Grumligt gul med ett vit "vete"-skum. Ganska söt smak och lite dåligt kolsyrad.

superspak (3509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/3/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, light pepper, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, light pepper, light pine, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/spicy pepper bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, light pepper/pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale style. All around good balance and robustness of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

milewide (1751) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Classified as Amber ale, but label says kristall wheat. Cloudy like wheat, but tastes like a routine Amber. Pretty bland.

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 31, 2015
Golden to brown body and stable head. Simple malts, light amber, freshly baked bread, clean. Soft bitter, decent ending. It’s okay. Always been an odd style. Couldn’t say it’s typical or not, just a light toasted beer and clean palate. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Idiosynkrasie (5026) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2014
355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Aroma has not one explicit flavour, wheatgrainfruithopmalt. Taste is minimally dry hoppy, slightly fruity, apple and peach, a dry touch of fruit parings. Different from water, not much development.

exeter (462) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a clear copper colour. Very little head but laces nicely. Taste is caramel, Bisacuit and apple back flavour. There is also some faint citrus and grass. A bit bitter after taste. Not to bad, not to special.

samzim (347) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, and yeast. Clear amber colour. Slightly sweet front with sustained bitter finish; flavours of bread, nuts, and toffee. Light body with medium carbonation. Pleasant to sip, but not too interesting.
