The face of white beers.... well, pours a cloudy golden white with thick white head. Aroma of wheat, orange, and a little spice. Flavor is identical. Very refreshing, maybe just not my style.

W zapachu na pierwszym planie kolendra, pozniej skorka pomaranczy, w smaku z kolei już na odwrot, tutaj pomarancza dominuje, chociaz wciąż obecna jest kolendra. Piwo o barwie pomaranczy, brak piany. Calkiem w porzadku.

19Oracolo78 (179) - ITALY - MAY 22, 2017
Birra chiara torbida. Schiuma bianca fine e persistente. Al naso sentori di agrumi e pesca bianca. Al palato mediamente corposa con note agrumate con una lievissima acidit. Un birra discreta che si lascia bere senza pretese.

A nice thirst quenching beer after a long walk! Nice citrus/spice nose, pleasant wheat/white beer style without being too in your face. Like it!

Hazy gold color with a wheaty and orange zest aroma. Cereal like taste with a slight citrus aftertaste. Clean dry finish.

Bottle from Tesco. Not a favorite. Tastes like a blend of Duvel, lager and apple juice. Dont recommend!

radassace (258) - SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with small off white head. Not a huge amount in the nose but orange and a little spice. Very smooth slightly creamy mouth feel. Taste is light wheat malt, orange peel and juice, touch of corriander and white pepper. Slight bitterness on the finish. Not bad, very refreshing but not terribly exciting either.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
Un liquide orange un peu trouble, peu de mousse, un nez de fraises et de fruits confits. Les fraises se retrouvent aussi en bouche, avec du bleuet, du kiwi, des clmentines, plein de fruits bien sucrs et pas grand-chose de plus. Corps mince, saveurs uniformes et grand public, cest tonnant comment cette bire semble avoir t "dumbed down" pour les masses, comme disent les Anglo-saxons.

djoeye (4596) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 14, 2017
Aroma; wheat, lemon, catholic incense. Look; hazy golden beer, off white head. Taste; wheat malts, butter, lemon, caramel, clove note - mild finish. Feel; soft soft as velvet - wow! Overall; high drinkability, a nice one served chilled, even a bit on its way up. Good! [long pint@ Bishops Arms Lule - a safe part of Sweden]

Onesimus (72) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2017
This golden orange drink makes a substantial and fairly fine white head. There is a lively inviting look about it as it gushes with carbonation that moves quickly through the drink. The nose and flavour are somewhat obscure to me and I couldn't identify any particular flavours despite the promise of orange and spice. Light and frisky in the mouth the slightly sweet flavour made it an enjoyable encounter. It's not eye popping stuff but I would happily repeat and recommend it for a warm evening in the sun.
