Pours a yellowy kind of opaque color that looks way darker than I'm used to for wits. Head bubbled up a lot, settled very quickly, repoured to fill the glass, and almost completely gone by the time I started to write.
Like the smell a lot. Strong, fruity, sweet.
Taste is really interesting. Complex is about the first word that comes to mind - I can't pick anything out immediately. Hits the front of the mouth, then a significant bitter aftertaste. Really carbonated. Taste is unusual and not really pleasant but I also can't point out why. I think it may be the higher alcohol content coming through.

550ml bottle brought back from South Africa by my mum. Shared with @LaitueGonflable.
Pours a very cloudy pale (but perhaps not pale enough) golden hue. Frothy, bubbly white head. Light body. Head doesn't stay strong consistently, by the end it's a thin film. No lace. The haze is solid, otherwise it's a bit flat.
Nose is relatively bland and flat, but with a pleasant light sweet citrus from the peel. There's a bit of greenery, and an estery character that reminds me more of a German hef than a Belgian wit. Slight phenols and a touch of spice on the back. Not bad, but not great.
Taste is thin and reed, some spice, a bit of Belgian phenolic characters coming through on the back. There's a hint of apricot or peach to the aftertaste, which melds into a smooth, clean and peppery finish all up. It's not bad.
Feel is a little too thin: with the phenols it starts to feel a bit astringent.
Drinkable enough. To be honest, it's a bit bland, but it's not bad.
