BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
[bottle] Pours a hazy golden yellow. Juicy orange aroma; peppery. Flavors are very fruity, strong ripe orange and citrus peel combined with tart wheat and spice. Finishes dry, with strong carbonation. Very good stuff.

Pours hazy straw with thin white head. Aromas are floral, citrus, nutmeg, spices. Taste light sweetness, hint of sourness, slightly salty. Medium body, creamy, lively, long finish. Overall an excellent beer, especially to accompany ramen noodles

I bought this bottle at drink of the world in Zurich. I drank it yesterday at home with my wife. Personnaly, I found this beer well done, well balanced wheatbier, classical for the style, the second one better from this brewery, until now. The skirt or color is a classical creamy/yellow and clear color, usual carbonation for the style, thin and white head. The taste is well balanced during all the sips: wheat, coriander, discreet touch of banana, a Belgium one, really wheaty at the final, when the beer is becoming hotter, perfectly refreshing or witha delicious Japanese soup.

Wolfbass (1155) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 13, 2017
Laspetto non troppo invitante, con pochissima schiuma, mentre al naso bella profumata. In bocca una blanche un poco diversa, con una frizzantezza finale che non guasta.

BitchPls (803) - FINLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Golden yellow and hazy beer with a minimal and brief white head. Not a strong aroma, a bit milky. Quite sour and nice flavor with citrus and florals. Very crispy and refreshing texture. I would love to drink this as a session beer in the summer. The palate and taste are wonderful but not long lasting. Very drinkable.

BeerViking (4604) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2017
Bottle, pours hazy golden with a fast-settling white foam. aromas of cloves, nutmeg, a little honey and a touch of orange peel. Deliciously spicy and hoppy-bitter over lightly honeyed dry-sweet malt. Very nice.

ralphdot (1091) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2017
5.5% cloudy gold in colour with a nice head, the aroma and taste where more like a French / Belgian wheat beer than a German one but very nice.

From 330ml bottle. Straw coloured and slightly hazy. Slightly yeasty aroma. Taste is light and slightly wheat. Quite a refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
