laiti (5777) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Draught @ CBC ’12
Aroma has citron and some wheat. Feels like one of those witbiers with low alcohol percentage. Flavour has citrus, wheat and some semi‐fruity hops. Too thin and watery, especially when looking at the ABV.

thetmaxx (752) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Poured from the can. Nugget had this beer with bmc tall cans, wtf? Poured golden and clear. Thin head dissipated quickly. I love the 16oz pour though. Aroma is of alcohol, grain, some Belgium yeast notes. I agree with the description the aroma is better than most lager summer beers. Flavor was grainy, but pretty smooth with Belgium notes. Overall not bad for 3$. But I did notice their slogan is a total rip of from DFH.
