On tap at Gig’s - puts a copper-orange ale in the glass with a 2 finger puffy off white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is malt accentuated - bready, woody, some grassiness. Flavour has incredible balance between a great mixture of wheat and barley malts and some earthy-herbal hops. Finish is clean and dry with a hopbite at the end. Dont know what they were after here but this brew refereshes satisfies and drinks really well.

At the Arrow and Loon. Pint arrived with barely any head, overfilled no room to breathe. Has a golden amber appearance. Aromas of cascade hops and light malts. Slight bitterness. Very well balanced hops and malts flavours. Oranges come in the finish. Drying mouthfeel, a bit watery. Mouthcoating sensation. Almost like a session type beer. Pretty good!

[email protected] Bar, Stockholm. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wheaty, some grainy and mild grassy notes. Flavour is wheat, sweet grains, some wood, mild herbal notes. Mild gluelike notes as well. Close to BBE date.

Bottle at NK Bar. Amber color, small white head. Fruity, harsh, apple aroma. Light-bodied. Harsh, mellow fruityness. Some wood. Lame, old bottle.

355ml bottle @ nk bar. Pours red amber color with a thin white head. Bready, caramelly, rye notes in aroma. Flavor has caramel, nuts, fudge and tired hops. Watery. Meh.

På flaska på wisers pub. Grumligt gul med ett vit "vete"-skum. Ganska söt smak och lite dåligt kolsyrad.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/3/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, light pepper, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, light pepper, light pine, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/spicy pepper bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, light pepper/pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale style. All around good balance and robustness of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Classified as Amber ale, but label says kristall wheat. Cloudy like wheat, but tastes like a routine Amber. Pretty bland.

3.4
erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2015
Golden to brown body and stable head. Simple malts, light amber, freshly baked bread, clean. Soft bitter, decent ending. It’s okay. Always been an odd style. Couldn’t say it’s typical or not, just a light toasted beer and clean palate. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Beerhunter111 (22407) - P´Castle, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2014
Leicht trübes orangegelbes Bier mit einer ordentlichen weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr fruchtig, dezent hopfig, Aprikosen. Geschmack nach Aprikosen, sehr fruchtig, wenig hopfig, malzig, gut!
