One of our most refreshing brews, made for those hot summer days, but satisfying year ’round. Recommended serving temperature 8°C/45°F. Goes well with seafood, particularly oysters.

Ingredients: Wheat and lager malt; East Kent Goldings and Crystal hops; Belgian ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

14°P, 25 IBU, 6.5 ABV.

The foam is flimsy and aroma reminiscent of a wheat beer. Besides wheat smells too spicy coriander and a little orange. Flavor is slightly tart floral sensation that quickly turns into a mild and round malt flavor which in turn goes into a protracted hop bitterness which incidentally is rich and is well balanced. As a whole, I find it very comfortable, but wheat is still lurking in my subconscious. In a blind test, I had probably guessed that it was a hefeweizen of the good German kind. I’m actually a little disappointed.

Golden in colour, light body, but full of flavour with hints of lemon zest, earth, hay, and bready malt. Had a wet, musty lingering to it. Lot of apples and grassy tones in this beer along with some pepper. The finishes had a crisp bitterness that makes you want to experience it all again.

Fizzy and mildly yeasty. Some weedy base. Not super impressive. This is rather mainstream.

Bottle. Tulip. Golden, hazy with huge, semi-densed, white head. Poor head lacing, average head retention. Nice spicey aroma. Taste is low bitter, semi-sweet malty backbone. Nice, refreshing beer.
