Some say she’s the luxe life. Exuberant. Snappy. Bright. Chatty. Sunlit. Lush. Passionfruit. Blueberries. Sparkling. Refined. Considered. Dry. And frankly, refreshing.

Travlr (17722) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Draft at the source. Clear yellow, white edge head. Aroma of freshly mowed wet grass and meadow flowers. Taste is floral and bitter. Not bad.

Light blond, thin head, slightly spicy hop w mellow, clean pale malt. Good malt character, dry herbal hop, a little fresh grain.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2012
Yellow colored with hazy appearance, little white head. Extremely rich aroma with peach, even blueberry note, grassy flowers. Thin to medium bodied, little bit of watery palate. Flavor is more fruity in start, aftertaste turns to strongly peachy-flowery. Biting end. Refreshing one.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - APR 15, 2014
The head is good for a kölsch, body is golden. It smells sweet, malty, mild. The taste is malty, thin, almost not hoppy, bit yeasty, mild, boring - good for a kölsch...

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 Draught at the brew pub, a slight haze to the golden colour with a white bubbly head. A swet citrus fruit hop aroma. A clean palate, with flowery and citrus fruit flavours. The finish is crisp and dry.

Very pale colour with a persistent bead of carbonation and the remnants of a white head. It appears as if you shouldn’t expect too much but the aroma suggests otherwise. Lots of fragrant passionfruit and hibiscus, papaya and lychee. Just tropical fruit all over. There’s all that in the taste along with fresh, light golden malts and a lovely sherbety tingle that goes on all over the tongue. It starts to dry on the palate and your enduring impression is "I want it to be hot outside, I want it to be bright and I want a stonking great stein of this stuff." I also wouldn’t mind a lusty, busty moral-free blonde German girl in a bikini to enjoy it with, but then you can’t have everything can you?

Light yellow in colour, smokey flavour to begin with, gets better as warm up. Tropical aroma. Dry finish.

A lighter style of beer that has a nice easy drinking flavour profile. Tropical fruits with a citrus zest. Soft carbonation.

Pdubyah (553) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 8, 2013
I don’t get a length of taste or a depth. So I would then describe this as "thin" all over. Lacks body, lacks a defining taste. I for sure don’t get fruits, other than a vague passing passionfruit. Disappointed that I didn’t enjoy this more because I wanted to.

Tap @ Hallertau. Hazy light gold pour with a short white head leaving moderate lace. Fruity, vaguely sweet nose.Medium body with fine, moderate (natural) carbonation. Berries, nuts, biscuit, clean. Short finish is nicely balanced. Maybe a touch of sugar in the middle and finish, but very nice overall. Eminently sessionable, but you’ll have a hard time resisting the other brews in their lineup!
