Medium bright with fine top . Pale gold . Aroma: sweet on top, light alcoholic note and touch of hop character. Rather flat mild at the centre , soft texture . Rather boring, not much in it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[big bottle at RBSG]
Bright, coppery-yellow with a wispy, white top and a nice ring. The aroma is of lemony grain with some grapes and a touch of wood and celery. The combination reminds me of Alsacian wine. Sweet celery-ish malt flavour with some pleasant vegetal qualities and a little house hold cleaner, but still quite nice. Medium body, very low carbonation--it would improve the beer to have a lot more carbonation--and a sweet finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Orangey golden, hazy - looks pretty much like a "Hefe Weizen". Huge head. 30% wheat in this brew - and it shows. Very yeasty nose, slightly perfumy. Has a cloying sweetness and in spite of a dry bitterness this beer seems completely out of balance. Lots of diacetyl. 230405
