Strong citrus flavour. Smell so good when you open the bottle. The hop taste comes onto your tongue without much bitterness, but surely is the accent. Highly recommended to young ladies who are not fond of beer because of it.

Bottle. Pours a hazy pale amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity wheat malty hoppy citrus aroma with some very weak hints of bananas. Sweetish wheat malty hoppy citrus grapefruit flavor. Has a wheat malty hoppy finish.

Bottle. unfiltered. Poured a beautiful hazy dark straw yellow. Small hints of malt on the nose. Smooth and refreshing. Flavours of fruit particularly. Qute surprised how good this was. Nothing complex, but definetely drinkable.

Capa (1987) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 30, 2009
Sweet malts, fruit and light floral notes come through in the aroma. Flavor is a bit more fruity, floral, with light hoping. Decent but not amazing.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2009
Draught at Craft Beer Bar, Yokohama (4.5%) Cloudy pale amber. Hoppy grapefruit and passion fruit aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and chewy wheat crackers. Very drinkable with aromatic. citrichops drives it. Like an APA based on wheat.

KyotoLefty (6322) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2009 Light copper color, hoppy fragrance with citrus, some caramel, and a touch of banana and spice. Flavor of grapefruit, caramel, light but flavorful malts, mostly barley I would guess, and some wheat. Light, hoppy, crisp and clean, though not a whole lot of flavor overall. A decent hot-weather beer. Hop and citrus finish is very pleasant. Great summer refresher.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JUL 3, 2008
Slow and steady pour from the bottle. Clear gold in the glass. Grassy smell. Refreshing light taste...goes down smooth with a subtle but strong bitter finish. Leaves an impression on the palate. It was a hot night when i drank this so it warmed up quickly and as it did, more of a toasty flavour came out. Quite nice.

TimE (3143) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 15, 2008
Rating from memory, but had 2 pints yesterday. American wheat. More hop are used in the aroma and it is somewhat fruity. Body is light and balanced and has a refreshing finish. Not overly complex, but fairly nice for the style.
