In combination with the specific mixture of grains, hops and water a very original taste is created that makes it completely different from any other beer on the market.
The fruitiness does not come by the addition of fruit juices or syrups artificial yeasts but only by the combination of fruity and hopping. This makes this beer pure and natural taste.
