From a bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a rapidly disappearing white head and no lacing. Smells of spices, coriander, lemon, and wheat. Taste is the same as the aroma but with a slightly metallic off-flavor. Finish is crisp but without any hoppiness but with a faint lingering grapefruit skin bitterness and a disquieting metallic tinge to it. The palate is very thin, relatively over carbonated, and has an absence of any substantive malt or wheat body. There is none of the inviting citrus overtones that I would normally expect from this style to provide balance. A very disappointing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Light gold color, clear. Medium carbonation and low head. Aroma of white peach, coriander, parsley, hint of sage and hay. Simple flavor of cereal, green apple, peach and peppery hops. Easy drinking but comes without balance. Watery mouthfeel.

Renobob (627) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Au nez, arômes d’agrumes et de banane. En bouche, bière peu corpulente et arômes qui passent un peu trop vite, pas de longueur. Pas désagréable.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde/blanche, petite mousse très grosse effervescence, une bière avec un goût très froment banane en début de bouche et une fin fleur d’oranger, juste agréable...

Hazy yellow color, small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus and spice. Dry taste has similar notes with light hops in gently bitter finish. Thin body and lively carbonation. Very refreshing beer.
