2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thnx to the representive ( yes, apparently GI has a representive now in BE, as they will soon start to import this brewery in Belgium. Of course, nothing like BCBS, only this type of... beer... ) Pours rather unclear blonde, not much head, and it fades instantly. Smell is weak. Taste is very weak. Slightly metallic maltyness, some corn-flake taste, but overall very very tasteless and wattery. Not sure how this would be a convincing beer to anyoneís palate. I can see people drinking loads of this, but not for itís taste, more like a lager-style of drinking.

Bottle. Not that good. Good session beer with some fruits. Creamy and smooth. Could be much better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours yellow gold, initially very cloudy from wheat and yeast, with small white head that dissipates quickly. Clears to very attractive Sauternes gold.
Nose is wheat and yeast. As it warms, apple and honey scents emerge. But the palate is more straight forward, without many of the spice and fruit notes common to European wheat brews. In their place, thereís some of the inevitable hoppiness that makes a beer "American" or "urban" or "hipster." But even that is fairly controlled.
Overall, itís a nice, drinkable beer, but not one that makes a big impression. Sometimes, thatís what you want.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poor example of a wheat ale, little banana or spice on the nose, and a rather dull flavour.

Vary heady and complicated. A tough challenge for any beer man. One of the best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
35.5cl bottle at home (1 IV 2016), shared with a friend. An unfiltered urban wheat from Goose Island, hazy amber in a glass with frothy foam head. The grains flavours are vast and omnipresent, yet the hoppiness is as strong. Just a great drinker. Think of an american pale ale (APA) with wheat and hops-powered. The bitterness is very short, and the body is light. Other taste sensations are grain and some turf. Even though it is not my favorite style, I love this smooth drinking hoppied wheat ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bertís
Slightly hazy light golden color with a smallish off white head. Spicy earthy lemony with some bits of sweet bready and grainy malt. Not horrible, but not something Iíd likely grab again.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ar- light malt breadyness, light hop aroma, no yeast aroma
Ap- hazy straw colored with small white head
Fl- pretty bland here, light bready malt flavors, hints of citrus hops, mild bitterness that really balances nothing.
Mouthfeel- medium bodied, nicely carbonated, medium attenuation but do you want that in a wheat beer?
Ov- not great for me. I understand this is American wheat but I get little hop flavor or aroma, hardly any malt backbone. It's light and crisp but that's really about it.
