3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden yellow, with a small creamy white head. Finally a beer from these guys apart from the Java coffee stout that doesn’t smell like hair products! Atleast not that much. Heavy fruity, banana and lemons, apricots, slight bubblegum, slightly herbal. Pretty much what a hefe should smell like, only a bit watered down. A nice fruity sweetness kicks it off tastewise. The spiciness is a bit harsh in the relativitely short finish. Makes it a bit soapy. Light bodied. Liked it.

Taster, 5.6% ABV, on tap at the brewpub. Solid amount of lacework. Unclear golden body. Smell of wheat and spices. Dry fruits in flavour along with notes of banana and spices. Fruity tartness to the ending. Worth drinking (Oslo, 01.04.2011).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy yellow colour with an average white head foam. Good aroma with strong spiced notes and citric hints. Refreshing taste with a lightly sour touch and a very light bitterness. Subtle spiced and herbal but overall a bit flat in the flavour. Light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, short finish. Average wheat beer.

From [email protected]
Cloudy straw colored, topped by thin greyish head with spotty lacings. Dry lemony and zesty fruit aroma. Some dry pale malts too. Fairly crisp and lemony fruit flavor. A touch of sour-accented, light sweet malts. Some spice tones. Body is light plus. A certain sharpness on the palate. Fruity and light soapy endnotes. Overall a decent and easy drinkable wheat beer.
