Lovely crisp citrussy fruity hoppy aroma, refreshing and uplifting. Pale in the glass, but with a uge spongy persistent head. In the mouth its’s a bit watery, but does have a little resiny stickiness and malty sweetness. Some mashy sticky malts are a little annoying, maybe crystal malts? A little sub-par as a beer, but this is 2 percent, and there’s no reason to drink shit LAs when there are good ones like this around.

I’ve got to start reading the labels better on some of these. I did not know Mikkeller made a low alcohol beer till I tasted this. Hazy orange color, small white head. Fresh hoppyness with notes of pineapple. Light-bodied. Fruity, slightly grapefruity with some pine needles. Of course watery, but tasty for this ABV.

Bottled (thanks laiti!). Hazy orangeish golden colour, big slightly off-white head. Aroma is big time fruity and floral hops with some mild resiny and sprucelike notes. Flavour is very fresh fruity and floral hops with sap, resin and some sprucelike notes. Very tasty for being 1.9 %, and actually it doesn’t feel watery either. A masterpiece in Low Alco brewing!

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Keg at Friends of Ham, Leeds. Pours a hazy orange, two fingers of head. Aroma is really nice - breadiness, perfume, floral hops. Taste is nice too - citrus, some perfume, some wheaty breadiness and a touch of banana. Body is of course thin, nice clean, dry, bitter finish. For 1.9%, this is ridiculously impressive, and objectively, damn good too.

Bottle, shared december 6th 2012. Blond unclear body, white foamy head. Hoppy aroma, amarillo, with a light malty edge. taste is mostly hops, pine and grapefruit, high bitterness, probably due to this being 1,9% not having much malt to balance it out. Body is of course a bit thin, but for a low abv there’s nothing wrong with this.

T - Wheat and sweet grainy malts, floral and grassy hops, some bitterness, some lightly tart lemon zest. M - Medium-minus bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with dry and bitter finish.

It’s tasty and true to style. It’s really not a style I love, most wheat beers are usually just ok in my opinion. Although there are exceptions this is just another well crafted wheat ale that Im not really into. That said, I love Mikkellers beers, all of them, he’s my favorite brewer. This one is just not really for me, but not because I hate it its just ok in my opinion.
