330ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe.
Fresh hoppy aroma but grassy too. Light yellow look with white head.
Could be more bitter, too light body. Some savor interferes. Not so incredible though.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very misty golden greenish body and small bubbly yet stable head. Very fresh hops, mint almost. Fresh mandarin zest, mango and a hay like underpinning that give this beer the actual edge over so many other hoppy brews nowadays. Full bodied mouth feel, original zesty bitterness and even lemony. Almost lime pale ale like, however with a spot on malt base and characterful yeast presence. Lager light cleanness even in the start of the taste, but a lasting bitterness profile. Very good, very fresh, moderate abv and great summer beer. Best from the brewery so far, I think! (33cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles, thanks for the import ;)

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Slightly saturated yellow, cloudy, citraic, with an enormous head.
First impression is this being a pils, course of the german hops, but cascade turns the image around, adds floral, hoppy aromas, making this actual an IPA. Wheat and hints of pine are still stronger than the usual fruity aromas, I would expect of a beer like this.
Actually, at first glance I got the feeling of drinking a "Pils", but after a short while the aroma hop bitterness kicks in. Wheat freshness turns into a wet hoppiness, with a decent malt backbone. Flavors of mango and orange are recognizable, going along with rich wheat impressions, getting overwhelmed by an upcoming hop-bitterness in the end. Carbonation is pretty present, adding a metallic flavor to the beer, without being distractive, but adding a metallic flavor to the beer.
The problem I got with this beer is, that both flavors, wheat and bitterness, do not go well within this beer, it creates a contrast which isn’t balanced by blending together.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale cloudy in the glass, thick white head. The nose is extremely grassy and floral. The beer starts grassy, floral and only slightly malty. Slightly sourish - probably due to the extreme hop-blast. The bitterness is moderate, in the end nicely dryer, but still floral and fresh!
