Appearance: muddy, lemon juice yellow body, with fine white head that trails thick lace; looks like real-deal lemonade

Aroma: coriander, clover, cinnamon, bitter citrus, lemon

Taste & Mouthfeel: herbal, lightly spice and a blend of orange/lemon juice that isn't tart or too sweet; flavour is subdued in general, but strongly satisfying somehow; medium body and proper carbonation with a pleasant, dry finish of lingering citrus and herbal notes; none of the vegetal/tinny aftertaste I sometimes find with a wit; the finish is incredibly clean and clear, fresh - everything is just getting better as I drink

Overall: at first thought it was too light all around, but after several sips flavour builds and it all comes together as a subtle brew not trying too hard - simple and highly drinkable, pure and clean

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

330 ml bottle with best before date 06 05 16

A light straw colour and so hazy that it is opaque. Huge 3 inches of fine white head that never went away. Lots of carbonation. Thick globs of lacing with great retention.

An aroma that is tangy at first. Nice Belgian yeast smell. Wheaty. Cloves come out as it warms.

A great smooth taste. Again it's tangy - cloves, orangy, lemony. Lots of subtle spiciness.

A chewy creamy feel with nice carbonation.

Excellent overall.

It's late, so I'm doing an Overall portion on this review. The appearance is world class. Hazy as hell and unfiltered, just how I like it! The aroma has that straw and wheat sweetness with bold spices and subtle fruity yeast notes. The taste is of unfiltered wheat grains and spices (coriander/peppercorns). Faint metallic with a great nobel hop finish. Dry and semi-sweet with lingering peppercorns in the aftertaste.the body is light and refreshing. I can crush this all day long. This brew is recommended.
