2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dark orange color with an off white head. Fruity, wheat, banana and raspberry in the nose. Decent body and a fine carbonation. Not to sweet. Also a bit acidic. The banana and raspberry crashed a little bit. Otherwise a fresh and ok ale. Also some wheat and yeast in the flavor.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice blonde/pink color with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma is kind of a mix of a hefeweizen and raspberries. Nice raspberry with some slight bubblegum/banana-ish aromas. The flavor is interesting with notes of sour raspberries, bread, bubblegum/banana with a dry finish. The high amounts of carbonation suits this beer well. It’s good, but a tad too dry for my liking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Has a cloudy, matt dark orange colour with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast, hops and some raspberries. The flavour is slightly sour with tones of berries, citrus and some wheat. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fresh ale but feels a bit unbalanced in the end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaske fra systembolaget. Uklar rød farge, noe hvitt skum som forsvinner. Høyt karbonert. Smaker gjær,banan, hvete ,bringebær, sitrus. En frisk og livlig øl. Som en blanding av surøl/fruktøl og hveteøl. Resultatet er en ganske frisk, men smakløs hveteøl med litt aroma av bringebær og ettersmak av litt sitrus og humle. God men ingen utfordring

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
330ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Explosive two and a half finger head with soapy off-white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Small lacing and fizzy carbonation; Sweet and tart aroma of light raspberry, light banana, strawberry syrup, wheat, vanilla, sugar, ester, yeast, light cloves light malt and faint grass; Very tart and near-zero sweet taste of very light malt, with strong metallic, strong wheat, light strawberry, light sour fruits, soda, very light phenolic, lemon, and faint grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is very watery and nearly tasteless fruit soda. Strong tartness and metallic spikes, and only faint trace of strawberry taste. Almost no sweetness and very faint phenolic taste as if this is a soda void. Oh dear!... Hoppiness is faint grass nose, lemon and grass notes in taste; No bitterness, just wheaty sour fruit finish;
Slightly dry after taste. Very easy and tart to mouth.
Comments: Thought this might be better than Meantime Wheat. Fat chance: the raspberry was only manifested in very light aroma, the rest is just tasteless, very tart and metallic Frankinstein in the name of raspberry wheat beer. Just poor, poor, poor!
