From the bottle. Not much aroma, a little lemon. Light carbonation. Sweet, lightly lemon flavour. Almost no bitterness. Doesn’t really taste much like beer at all. However it is not unpleasant.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber to orange colour with a white head that settles to an even layer of foam. Fruity aroma with lts of passionfruit and melon. Some sweetness in the flavour with a nice body and texture. A good all round beer. One of those that beers that you have no expectations about and they turn out to be vey good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 330ml on 9/3/2012. ABV is listed as 4.5% rather than 4.8%. Pours a fairly clear golden with a biggish head. Has a slight sweet sour fruity aroma. The flavour is mainly sweet fruit, particularly orange, with a slightly tart citrus hop finish. Not quite sure what to make of this. It has some interesting elements but doesn’t quite come together sufficiently to make it a winner. I would also note that something’s amiss with some of the earlier ratings listed, as there are numerous references to it being a wit.

On tap at the brewpub. This was one of the better ones there. Pours a light cloudy gold. Lightly hopped aromas of citrus and pine. Flavours of Lemon, orange, caramel, and light grass. Decent and quite drinkable.

I tried to like this, but I think I got a bad bottle. Murky kava like colour with no head or carbonation. Flat and stale cardboard and metallic taste. Must be better at the brewery.

Tried as a sampler at the Five Island Brewery. This was the first beer tried and I was surprised to find it to style. Better nose than their Barbeerian, lemon mainly in the taste and a little thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 RE-RATE: Bottle (330ml). Poured light gold (quite clear for a beer that claims to be unfiltered) with a small frothy, white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of orange zest with coriander, sweet bready malts, some lemon soap notes and a touch of dried banana. Flavor was well balanced with tangy lemon, zesty orange, bready malts, coriander, hint of ginger, light bitterness and a crisp finish. Light bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/creamy mouthfeel and a good finish. Even though the bottle I purchased was not the freshest, it held up quite respectably. Great summer thirst quencher.
