A- Cloudy light yellow body with a frothy white head . S- Smell of wheat , banana and a little citrus zest. Just a touch of pepper. T- Nice blend of wheat, spice and citrus zest. M- Light body with a refreshing, crisp feel. A little thin. D- A really refreshing beer, a great summer time beer. I would not turn this one down on a hot day.

Nice from bottle but even nicer on tap, very refreshing and the orange and spice come through well with being too strong ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very enticing beer for someone who enjoys a wheat beer, cloudy with a small amount of head and a slight citrus taste. Goes for around $6 a pint in my area and I find myself being drawn back to it whenever I am in the neighborhood.

Very carbonated. Lemon flavours dominate, with bread and slight spice undertones. Very light feel in the mouth, wish it was a bit more solid and a bit less sweet. Seems like a wheat beer for the lager drinker

On tap at Pete’s in SF. Clear, light yellow. A very unique looking beer. Taste and smell kinda reminds me of a mimosa. Be careful with this one, the light fruity taste will make it go down like water. A pitcher can disappear in a few minutes.

For the eyes: pale yellow colour; the head is average sized; frothy, white; fair lacing; hazy, heavily particulate body. For the nose: straw malts and herb hops; notes of banana and pineapple. For the mouth: ligh body; thin texture; average carbonation; metallic finish. For the tongue: sweet, but with an acidity that brings a refreshing sensation. For me: refreshing and very decent.

a cloudy yellow colour, nice size head that fades over time. Bananas, orange and spice, clove and coriander, up front with more subtle characteristics behind. Some fruity sweetness.

33cl bottle. Lack of flavor. They tried to make a too clear beer and they made a beer which is not too bad. The aromas is not bad but not strong enough and the foam should be improved. Taste is gentle and drinkable, sweet.

Il colore è di un bel giallo paglierino sbiadito, quasi di un verde molto opaco, con un leggero grado di torbidezza riconducibile alla presenza di lievito e alla sua non filtrazione. Per rendere l’idea, è quasi netta la visibilità da una parte all’altra del bicchiere. Attraverso il bicchiere è inoltre possibile notare un’elevata effervescenza interna, indice del processo di rifermentazione in bottiglia. La schiuma si presenta alta e densa nella fase di spillamento, mentre si riduce notevolmente durante la fase di riposo in bicchiere, rimanendo sottile ma comunque cremosa, in particolare lungo i bordi. L’aroma è assolutamente fresco, quasi basterebbe quest’ultimo a ripagare delle fatiche quotidiane. All’olfatto risaltano l’odore misto dolce-pungente del coriandolo e delle bucce d’arancia, che si presentano anche a livello di gusto. Ciascun sorso regala un pizzico di frizzantezza, alternando una prima percezione agra ma lieve, ad un sentore dolciastro e leggermente luppolato, chiudendo il cerchio con una nuova e questa volta più intensa, seppur leggermente, nota aspra. La persistenza amarostica è invece di bassa intensità, lasciando la gola fresca e dissetata. Una mia personale raccomandazione è quella di conservare il fondo della birra per un sorso indipendente: la presenza del lievito che si deposita sul fondo altera la percezione degli altri sapori, esulando dal resto del corpo. Nel mio caso, l’ultimo sorso è stato un elogio alla naturalezza e alla nota rotonda e dolciastra che riempie la bocca e sazia la gola.
