Pours very pale hazy yellow, the head dissipates very quickly. It smells like a fruit salad; I pick up passion fruit, mango, and orange in the nose. The orange is much more present in the flavor and is a bit too dominant. The finish is simple, short, and hollow. The carbonation is lively, the mouthfeel is fine. Overall, the nose was promising; too bad the other characteristics don’t measure up to it.

330ml blue bottle. Pale yellow pour, hazy. Good sized creamy white cap. Orange and lemon in the nose, wheat and spice. Light citrusy taste, some peels, creamy wheat malt. Very light in body and mouthfeel. Light fruity aftertaste. Ok, works well in the summer heat.

Draft. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of artificial lemon. Flavour is medium sweet, low bitter. A bit chemical like and artificial, not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

25cl at a music festival. Thin white head. Hazy blond pour. Not bad. Much better than their pils.

Tastes like soap :( - I drink a lot of beers and am not very picky but this is yukki......I won’t buy it again. Kronenbourg marketers should tell their people not to sell this one anymore.

JorgeLee (1740) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle in Beach Bar, Nyon. This is a very curious beer. Comes in a very small blue bottle and was served with a lemon. It’s basically a violation of the blanche style, with a load of chemicals loaded into a bottle to make it taste like a mass market palatable version of Hoegaarden. I’d think of it as an alcoholic soft drink or a shandy rather than a beer, and if you start from that base it actually (and perhaps sadly) tastes ok, especially on a hot day in the sun. Cloudy yellow, not so much wheat character or yeast, peachy lemony sweetness, bit of spice, virtually no aftertaste.

A Blanc-ban a címke súgása szerint egy huncut szem árpa sincsen, szemben a búzasörök elsöprő többségével. Valószínűleg épp ennek köszönheti szélsőségesen egyéni ízét (és színét), ami a maga zománcszaggatóan citromos, mégis összeálló és kellemes összhatásával egészen kivételes élménnyé teszi sörünket, elsősorban kuriozitás, másodsorban ízélmény szempontjából. Megjelenése alapján meg garantáltan sokkal stílusosabban és egyénibben lehet egy, az üveg mellé tett, félig töltött pohárral sörivósat játszani társaságban, mint mondjuk Heinekennel vagy Borosdival. Az Adria Sétányon folyamatosan kapható!

Boutip (5862) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a medium size pure white foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt is pretty thin. Taste is dominated by lightly sweet wheat malt notes with no spices or other characteristics. Body is bit thin with OK carbonation. Watery version of the style with limited amount of coriander or orange peel makes this an unattractive beer.

One of my favorite beers. Crisp citrus flavor may turn some more hardcore enthusiasts off, but when from the tap with a slice of orange, there aren’t many beers that compare on a hot day.
