Aroma is reminiscent of lemon-lime barley waters we used to drink as children in England. Quite tart and yet very sweet at the same time. Opaque whitish green body is topped by a very generous and long lasting white head that recedes to a lasting cover and laces really nicely. Almost a perfect appearance but for that sickly colour but the retention and lacing lead me to believe this to be a well-brewed beer. Flavour has some wheat character but is overwhelmed by very strong, sugary sweetness with light tartness apparent only in the finish. Lemon-lime character is quite strong and in some ways makes me think of gin. Wheat is quite notable and lasting in the aftertaste. Medium body is doughy in texture with soft bubbled carbonation that engages the tongue and cheeks. This is not really all that much to my taste, but it is at least interesting and does seem like a well brewed beer. Certainly less like an alcopop than some of the others in this line. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (4.2%, BB Jan-08, Biropholie, Aug-06).

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle at Dovetail, London. Had seen so many people with it that once tipsy, the alluring flourescent glow overpowered my common sense. A cloudy lime green colour with no head but ample carbonation. Smells and tastes like limeade, the cheap artificially sweetened store brand, but with just a hint of wit that gives it slightly more body. Not bad as a soda but as a beer nooooooooooo! Is there a ratesoda.com? would be more fitting for this one...

Hazy white-greenish hue, with an off-white head, with an artificial sweet lime nose of green lollipop, with a 7up accent, a limony fruitiness, in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet zesty citrus fruity lime character, leaning towards a green lollipop candy of my childhood citrusy artificial accent, with a faint wheaty note, leading towards a sweet lemony and mountain dew soda finish.

Smells like lime Lickm aide, (little envelopes of powdered sugar) hazy pastel green, same as lime jello pudding, big white head. Taste is ginger ale and artificial lime, cloying, very carbonated, yikes! No cacti were hurt in the production of this soda.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2006
Strange greenish colour with almost no head and no carbonation. Sweet fruity arome, a undifined smell. Taste is strange, I guess the cactus. It is a bit like the cactus jenever. Nevertheless it is not really bad, good on a warm summer holliday.

PEGU (7) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2006 does not count
This has nothing to do with beer at all! Quite funny green color, quess its an option on St. Patricks, just take some real beers before this chemical artificial joke. Beer goes Disneyland.

Bov (12556) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2005
cloudy pale green (?!?) colour with a fine white creamy head; strong revolting aroma of lemon detergent or shampoo (though I would not be crazy enough to pour this on the remaining of my hairs...); light-bodied, sweet and a little bit acidic with a tragic aftertaste lemon flavoured soap - this is far beyond disgusting ... come on, stupid marketing assholes: youve gone too far !

Yeah this is serious fun..Lime is the keyword, initially. Lime-green colour, came right out of Medusas kitchen and strange sweet limey smell. No vomiting yet. Taste: ugh, yeck, yuck. Dishwater with fruity notes. Well, at least they dont have to wash the bottle afterwards...its strange, true, but also REALLY bad.
