3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy straw yellow from bottle with medium white head. Aroma is more or less typical for wheat beer plus some fruity, oaky notes, a little different, but good. Average body and carbonation with pear cider taste on top of the expected wheat malts. Overall, a different but quite refreshing brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Bar Hop. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small diminishing frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain, sugar, paper, caramel malt and vegetal notes. Flavour of caramel malt, a hint of spice and some fruit. Average bodied. Barrel-aged, really? You’d never know it. Not very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Bar Hop. Pale amber pour. The nose is slightly fruity with a touch of light oaky vanilla as well. Softly sweet with a moderate level of earthy hoppiness. A little bit of light fruit on the back and some lingering sweetness. Pretty tame and not all that interesting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy straw pour, foamy white head. Aroma is a bready, a little sweet. White wine. Slight grassy tones (could be the wine). Light body. A little sweet, clean finish. Watery. Would probably be nice on a hot day with something spicy. Unfortunately it’s a cold night. Pass.
