COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Vienna and Pale Wheat malts. Hopped and dry hopped with a blend of New Zealand (Nelson Sauvin) and USA (Citra) hops giving a strong citrus/lemon grass aroma. Add the esters from a Belgian ale yeast and coriander for spicing and you have quite some complexity in this fusion of Belgian Wit and IPA.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - OCT 13, 2013
In the slightly darkened surroundings of Volstead, this beer looked for all money like a darkish IPA with only a suggestion of haze to betray its wheaty origins. The aromas are intensely tropical with bananas, passionfruit, guavas and some woody spices there. The aromas are reflected in the flavours with gratifying fruity bitterness, some spice and herbal grassiness being the hallmarks for me. It had a lengthy finish, but it wasn’t until the bottom of the second pint I got to experience this because I kept going back for extra mouthfuls and a top-up. Were it not for me driving, it could have been a beautiful and enduring match, this beer and me.

It pours golden with a white head. It has plenty of citrus flavor, grainy sweetness and an herbal quality to it with lemon.

Bottle. Commercial description is pretty accurate, this brew is balanced between wheat beer (lemon, wheat in aroma) and IPA (hops, bitterness, pine). Good one.

Easily one of my favourite beers. Easy drinking yet full bodied and powerful. Very tasty and pours well with pleasant aromas.

Pours pale golden colour with white foamy head. Some haze. Complex nose with citrus, herbs, tropical fruits, esters. Strong carbonation. Slightly sour taste and moderate lingering bitterness, doesn’t quite match the incredible aroma. Overall a very interesting beer.

3.6
BVery (10716) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Tap at MOA in Singapore. Light gold pour with a clingy white head. Coriander and citrus hop aroma. Similar taste. Quite good.
