330ml bottle. Lots of yeast notes, lots of bread, a little peppery spice. Not bad.

Slightly drying finish. Orange and corriander could be a bit stronger. Nice drop

2.2
invinoveritas (156) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Attractive 33cl bottle. Thin, pale pour with a thicker head. Odd aroma of pears and burning storage heaters, a bit of rubber too. That’s not good. Thin and watery to taste, those pears are there, some rhubarb crumble - it’s quite sour, almost like a soured version of Kopparberg. Taste is not too bad once you get used to it, but the body is very thin, almost silky. It has potential but inconsistent.

bbertels (485) - NORWAY - NOV 19, 2016
Backlog rate. On tap at bar in Singapore. Opaque and straw coloured -- quite fizzy head. Not much of an aroma except some yeast and wheat. Taste is very light with some citra, wheat, a hint of something spicy. Easygoing thirstquencher.

BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Tap at the bungee bar in Singapore. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Wheat, mild spice, okay.

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
[8341-20160522] Tap. Yeasty grassy aroma. Slightly hazy, pale yellow orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Grassy yeasty sweet grains flavour. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

kidmartinek (5000) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Very good. Hazy gold with a white head. The white foamy head lasts the whole drink and even stay if you let the beer sit a long while. It has a corriander aroma and flavor and a smooth, dense foamy palate.

3.2
jmgreenuk (9457) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at The Good Beer Company, Singapore. Poured a hazy straw colour with a round white head. The aroma is yeast, light banana. The flavour is acid citrus with a crisp dry mineral, light biscuit malt, light spice palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation.
