2.4/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2
Overtly sweet and skewed wheat ale, with an overwhelming character of fizzy artificial sugars.
Presentation: 25 cl brown capped bottle. Front label with a vertical design with the name of the brew and side bars with images of sliced mandarins. Back label offers a small description, best by date (25/03/11), and Alc. by Vol. (3,1%) Served in a tulip glass.
A - Lightly hazy deep yellow to amber. Tremendous frothy head, average retention, with some surface memory and a couple of touches of lacing.
S - Sweet, fruity, citrus/mandarin, sugary and artificial.
T - Taste follows and amplifies an artificial sense, in particular industrial sweetener, over a sweet and fruity, mandarin/orange sense, faint wheat touch in the background.
M - Light body with very aggressive carbonation, fizzy feel coating the sugary feel.
D - Overwhelming to the finish... Not unattractive in the the approach but it is a difficult one to crack.
Notes: Seemingly part of a fancy distribution push by a couple of retailers in Spain. And from what I am gathering it seems to be disappointing across the board... Maybe attractive to someone keen of sweet fizzy tablets cause other than that this is completely forgettable.

2.48/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
An extremely fruity fruit syrup, a touch of wheat is felt to be savored and gives the mouth a little touch milk is not unpleasant to think about milk & fruit. The course is very fruity and very sweet beer, but the body is not too syrupy. A fruity beer for less demanding throats.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
