It’s closer to tasteless than taste. Reminds me of not eating or not drinking. However, there is something attractive about it. Is it the simple notion that this enclosure contains alcohol? Is it an unconscious attraction, one I might never truly understand, but one that keeps me drinking. It is strange when a beer is easy to drink on the first sip. I understand the ones that startle in the beginning. A harsh IPA or even a miller lite. These beers surprise a drinker in the early stages and for different reasons, the IPA smacks your tongue out of your mouth and the miller lite simply disturbs. It is quite common, on the first sip of a miller lite for a drinker to question the ripeness of his or her beverage. Did this beer go bad? Will this drink kill me? But both these beers, over time, drift into the realm of drinkability. We get used to their thorns and begin to recognize their charm. This beer instead has no grit, none at all. Can we really hope to ever find its bright-notes? Perhaps these 12ounces will bring me an answer. kerenmk (5038) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle, bbotmc. Hazy amber with white head. Floral and soft tropical fruit aroma - pineapple. Tastes bitter and hoppy, a little floral and the slightest, quickly diminishing soapy aftertaste. Full body, bitter, hoppy finish. zvikar (6349) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - SEP 20, 2014

4 oz sample pour from bottle. Pours a bubbly golden color with a white head. Aromas of pear, champagne, slight floral hint. Flavors dominated by champagne, mild yeast, and white grapes. Light in body and high in carbonation with a crisp finish. ThreeCats (1000) - ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2014
Hazy honey color with a nice sticky head. Aroma nice and hoppy, but not overwhelming, floral and citrus. Taste solid and bitter, but again restrained. If an IPA is an APA dialed up to eleven, than this beer is an IPA dial back to basic pleasantness.

Aroma is fruit, caramel/toffee, citrus and very slightly dirty. The flavor is citrus, fruit, light toffee, mild sweetness and a dryish/tart/slightly bitter finish. beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - SEP 13, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Cloudy rustic light amber color with a nice off white head and lots of tiny bubbles rising up.
Fruity nose of sweet orange and mandarin, with some floral notes and faint light caramel.
Pleasant fruity flavor, some sweet malt, citrus and faint yeast.
Light bodied, lacks some interest but very drinkable. OK.
