Pours clear yellow into a tulip. Bright white head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet brett, wheat and resin aromas. Crisp with sweet band-aid and aspirin upfront turning to yeast and wheat before the lasting tropical fruit and resin finish.

Big bag of sherbert mixed with lemonade nose - superb. Somewhere between clear and cloudy yellow with spines of carbonation producing a fluffy white a head. Intense fruit funkiness as you get closer, carrying you into a Scrooge McDuck diving into the money scenario with a full spread of citrus and smacks of pink grapefruit on a neatly bitter finish.
There’s a Brett dusting throughout that just carries the tone and strength of the hop. The carbonation is capped well, giving the spicy tickle of the Brett an almost Saison cleanliness on the lift for the linger.
From start to finish there’s a ridiculous lemon and lime sherbert Dipp Dabb vibe, but with enough poise to the brew that the sweetness isn’t overpowering at any stage. Fantasic.

Backlog + re-rate: Had this about a year ago, sharing a bottle that was straight from the fridge. This was a little warmer and I had time to savour. Little bit more excellent this time around.

Medium to smaller sized airy and quickly changing white head on top of a cloudy yellow colored beer.
Aromas of yeast, hops, hop flowers, hop fruits, citrus, soap, pine, light sour tint and resin.
Flavours of hop fruits like crispy and creamy peach, apricot, mango, exotic fruit, pine, pine apple, resin, yeast, light malty touch. Damn this is crispy bitter fruit! Lovely!

Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium to fuller body and a creamy texture.

I normally do not rate a beer ’the day after’. This one is an exception because I really loved this beer. What a wonderful aroma! Difficult to describe afterwards but I remember a fresh but balanced taste and very pleasant tones of citrus en tropical fruits.

Wonderful "special" IPA. Relatively light and softly hopped, still strong enough and well balanced. Wonderful pair for fish dish.

Coldish bottle, quite young. No head. Fairly carbonated. Taste is medicinal lemon with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Have had lots of similar wheat beers. Similar to Bobby on the Wheat, for example. It’s funny that two very similar beers can have such different ratings on Ratebeer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Peachy hops, really bright and clear, with citric and flowery notes, a light wheaty malty base, and the faintest hint of weird funky bretty yeast. Delicious and quite drinkable. Really good.
