Bottle @ Café Buitenlust. Clear golden colour, medium white head. Smells malty... Little to no smell. Tastes quite malty.. Not much more. Between a pilsener and an ale. Thin body, nice carbo.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Botella de 355ml. Vaso Shaker. Saboreada en agt´11. Color dorado brillante y apariencia algo velada. Capa blanca y fugaz que deja algunos copos de encaje en las paredes. Aromas de levadura, pan crudo y leve afrutado. Moderado dulzor afrutado seguido por un seco amargor con notas de piel de uva. Trazos de corteza de pan en el intermedio y sensación algo áspera y granulada. Cuerpo y carbonatación medios. Algo sosa y plana. No es tan refrescante como se espera de una Pálida de Trigo.
355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Enjoyed on agt´11. Bright golden color, chill haze in appearance. Brief, white, head leaves some spotty lacing on sides. Yeasty – fresh bread- & fruity aromas. Moderate fruit sweetness followed by dry bitterness with grape zest notes. Bread crust hues in the middle, slightly harsh grainy sensation. Medium body, medium carbonation. Quite bland & flat. Not as refreshing as expected from a Pale Wheat.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally reviewed: 10/13/09. Got this bottle in the mixed 12-pack of summer. I probably never would have bought this on its own. Poured into my pint glass. Pours a murky reddish gold with no head on top at all. No lace either. Smells of faint fruits and mealy bread. The mouth is highly carbonated to an almost harsh level. Not pleasant. Mild unoffensive flavors in this. Some subtle fruitiness, honey, and slight bittering grass finish. Not as bready as I thought it was going to be. Not too bad, but not that great.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small vast white head on top of a hazy yellow orange colored beer.
Smell grains, dust, red fruit.
Taste is dusty with notes of grains, corn, light hoppy, hint of red fruit, wheat. Taste is pretty light with a light bitterness as well.
Light wheat light bitter dusty light red fruity aftertaste.
Medium carbo, tingly mouthfeel, slight medium body and a light watery texture.
Not bad, but very... Light.

3.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
light body, thin feel, average carbonation, astringent, golden, hazy, minimal head, white foam
Some summer ales ar fruity to the extreme. some are heavier and others are devoid of wheat or fruit. This has a nice balance. The fruit is there but not overwhelming. Its wheat base gives it structure and lightness. The astringency adds the final touch.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Fizzy orange to light brown body and bubbly head; just ok. Flat aroma, with some strawberry (probably the pomegranate), juniper berries, white bread rolls, lemon grass and cooked vegetables. Very watery mouthfeel. Taste is bland with only a light sour and sweetness from banana and apple. Cheap but still not worth it. (355ml bottle, 2,00 EUR) (Rating re-indexed)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2011 The label is imaginative, and the pour is nice, like a yellow lager but with hints of darkness and character. The aroma is slightly off-putting, but not horrible. Even the label is kind of neat -- a bear with shades juggling fruit. Unfortunately, where this beer kind of falls down is where a beer is supposed to shine -- taste. The fruit taste here is overwhelming and, well, bad. It combines with the wheat to be way too sweet. Maybe that’s the wrong way to put things -- I like some very sweet malty beers and hefeweizens can be good sweet -- but this sweet tastes almost like fruit punch Gatorade tastes on the way back up when you vomit it (Actually not as horrible as it sounds, but not good). I’ve only had one beer from this six pack, and I can’t afford to waste beer, so I’ll give it about five more tries, and maybe it will grow on me -- it wasn’t so bad as to be undrinkable, I finished my glass. If you see it as a single and want to try it, go ahead, but I don’t recommend buying a 6-pack and the 6 pack I started last night will probably be my first and last 6 pack of this beer. I texted a friend while I was drinking it and said "The bear can have it back.". Update: Tastes better drinking straight from the bottle when you’re overheated, but no matter how you slice it, average at best.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 Re-rate [July 17th 2012] Old scores: 7-3-6-2-12=3.0 Hazy murky yellow to orange color, medium sized off-white head. Smell wheat, light to medium fruity, some sort of mix between apple and pear. Taste is also a mix of apple and pear with some hops and a slight sweet-bitter finish. Low to medium carbo and body.
