Cloudy golden out of the bottle, a bit of white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and also a bit grassy. Taste a bit tart, notes of wheat and hops mixed with few caramel and fruit notes. Felt kind of dry at the finish.

A hazy yellowish orange color with fluffy white head. Smells like what it is- a hopped up wheat beer. Taste is a bit tart and muddled, not bad, just not good.

Bottle at Ales and Lagers, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a thin white broken head. The aroma is hoppy leading to a medium bitter, hoppy, spicy flavour which is smooth on the palate and super refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: very hazy orange color with some particles floating around. Thereís a soap-like head thatís about two fingers or so in height. The lacing is decent
Smell: Soapy hops -- really not much malt here, but it smells average.
Taste/feel: On the front thereís some massive citrus -- grapefruit sorts. Very bitter. Almost a medicinal flavor in there. The aftertaste is spicy with not much malt to balance it out. Decent beer, but itís just not balanced enough for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Encore bottle, love the artwork. Cloudy gold pour. Great aroma on this, strong citrus and pine. That set me up for a bit of a disappointment, though, as the taste is on the meek side. Thereís a pleasing bitterness and tartness in the finish, with a hint of orange. Nice, would buy again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. Encore labeled bottle poured to my 1/2 pint taster showing a hazed, orangy gold color, with billowy, off white head foam, and sheet-like cling to the lacing. The aroma started with a hint of sweetness, resiny pine, followed by some citrus as white grapefruit, lemon rind tartness, soft grain/wheat, but a disturbing touch of chemical soapiness that reminded me of Ivory flakes. The flavor initially presented a sharp tartness as concentrated lemon juice, which then combined with a strong & lingering hop bitterness, resulting in an overwhelming astringency, without much malt support. The soapiness was even more noticeable than in the nose. Tough to finish, and finally became drain lubricant.

Pours a cloudy orange amber with a thick foamy head. Aroma of light grain and hops. Taste is mildly sweet with a bright crisp tartness that finishes with a subtle bitterness and a dry finish. Definitely would get a case of this.
