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
