Appearance: Milky, frothy head. Cloudy, pale-yellow in colour, reminiscent of white grape juice.
Nose: very fruity and citrusy, with smells leaping at you, begging to be noticed and named. White grape, yuzu pomelo, tangerine, orange peel, banana even. Really engaging, lively and interesting nose. I even smelled musky pee!

Palate: Dry, fizzy, slight punch of alcohol, easy to drink. Refreshing. Unfortunately, the palate feels like a letdown, being nowhere as lively and engaging and complex as the nose. Still good-tasting though. Lemon, tropical fruits.

Finish: Reminds me of fizzy lemony champagne with a hint of pomelo.

A really unique beer that missed a step. This beer started really well but ended mediocre, which is a really pity. In a sense, it is a victim of its own success in delivering such a great aroma. At Kagua’s website, it is advised that its beers be enjoyed in wine glasses. It is not difficult to see why.

I would choose this over a Hoergaarden anytime, but till something is done to the depth of taste, it would always taste as if it could (obviously) be done better.
