Bottled (Konttori, Tre).
Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Honeyish malty aroma, some orange peel and wheat. Flavor is sweetish malty, spelt wheaty, grainy. Short grainy aftertaste. Not very exiciting: aroma was ok but taste is not very good.

Bottle, bought @ Randers Vinhus.
Pours hazy yellow with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has citrus, pine and grapefruit on top of light maltiness. Highish carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has very mild sweet wheat with some good, fruity and piney hops. Light dryness in the finish. Okay and rather fresh beer.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is dry and slightly sweet with lots of bread and biscuit notes and a very mild citrus back. Flavor is light and dry at the beginning with a slight hint of citrus, wheat, dough, and some sweetness at the end. Dry and lightly bitter on the palate. Easy to drink.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. A nice clear golden straw color body with a short white head leaving some spotty lace , medium carbonation. Aroma of Light sweet malt , wheat , bread crust , and a hint of citrus . Flavor is very light , it has hints of tangy wheat malt , citrus , honey and faint grassy hops , very balanced . Light body with a crisp clean mouthfeel , slightly dry finish with very little aftertaste . I would think this to be VERY sessionable , I could drink 5 or 8 on a hot day . Not the best Pale Wheat Iíve had but a very good brew to try .

williamherbert (1365) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Light golden yellow color. Head floats away quickly. Not all that impressive, to be truthful. The smell is a wheat base, that is overpowered by a slight funk of something I canít quite identify. Itís not altogether unpleasant, but not great. More wheat than pale. The taste is a peppery first sip, which dominates the flavor. A strange pilsnery hop, which seems out of place here. Really sharp flavor. Interesting.... The feel is smooth and buttery. A bite on the back and at the swallow. More of a wheat beer than a pale ale, although it has aspects of both. A decent drink, nothing amazing.

Pours copper/gold with a tan head. Smells of sweet wheat and some citrus. Tastes sweet and citrussy with some earthy hints on the finish.
