3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Hazy goldeny orange colour with a big fluffy white head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is bananas, some wheat, spices, mild tropical fruits as well as some slight yeastiness too. Flavour is surprisingly tropical fruity along with wheat, bananas, some spices, yeast as well as some nice bready notes. Wellbalanced and quite tasty brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared.
Apperance: pale golden clear yellow in colour, with a huge white head. Super thick foam, with excellent retention and leaving a decent amount of lacing around the glass.
Aroma: ight citrus, floral notes, green apples,yeast and some wheat.
Taste: fruity ,with some citrust fruits and green apples a hint of banana (Showing it’s weizen roots) , lighty hoppy, peppery yeast which gives it a bit of saison touch.
Medium thin body, average carbonation.
Interreting brew which reminds me of something between Kristallweizenweizen and a saison. Good thirstquencher for summmer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer review from notes-
Served on tap in a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer is served a light orange amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a good level of retention very slowly fading to leave a decent level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is big of a yeasty and banana smell with a moderately strong showing of a wheaty smell. Along with these aromas comes some lighter notes of an orange nature as well as some spice aromas of a clove and coriander. Some candied sugar and bubblegum aromas are there as well creating a rather pleasant hefe aroma overall.
Taste –As the nose would have suggested the taste begins with a nice hit of wheat bread and yeast. At the same time some very fruity flavors are present as well with orange, peach and lemon all being there. These upfront flavors create a nice base flavor for the brew, lasting through the entire flavor profile. Some spice and a good showing of bubblegum and candied sugar develop more toward the middle reaching their maximum potency once they fully develop toward the middle. The sweeter sugary flavors fade ever so slightly as the taste moves onto the end, being overtaken by a bit more spice and some grassy and hay flavors. In the end the mix of wheaty, yeasty and spicy, fruit and sugary sweetened tastes leaves a very pleasantly smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is quite light and thin with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the style and the tastes the mouthfeel is very nice, making for a very easy drinker.
Overall – A quite tasty hefe that is very easy drinking and quite balanced overall.

Heerlijk verfrissend bier. Mooie gouden kleur, kleine schuimlaag en veel koolzuur. 75cl fles die 5 maanden over datum is maar toch bijzonder goed smaakt.

Violent carbonated feel good by steaming a little. Cross between between a witbeer and a German weisse. Light summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10/11 A 0.75 l bottle from Vrutak store, Zagreb. It poured hazy light yellow body with big head. Fine weizen aroma, some orange, pepper, cloves, yoghurt, but also positively peculiar things like wood and curry. Flavor was lightly sweet, pleasant, but way too watery. Some chalky yeasty notes seemed dominant in vague dilution of orange, banana and spice essences. Although thin it had fine herbal and lightly aromatic orange finish that actually did manage to round it up nicely. Needless to say, since it was rather expensive, I expected much better. I also dare to say many of these high rates came from its price as well.
