A-Poured a hazy golden color w/frothy white head, but retention was short-lived.

S-Smooth and slightly sweet fruity/spicy bouquet. Bits of coriander, pear, orange and citrus.

T&M-Prickly carbonation w/smooth light body. Delicate fruit and spice w/wheat upfront. Light clove. Finish sticks and leaves aftertaste which is not altogether unpleasant. Carbonation carries through well and perks up other aspects of its character.

D-Sessionable and lively...excellent summer sipper. Not very distinguishable from other beers of this style.

I just picked up a 6 pack of this beer in 25 cl bottles at the Auchan supermarket in Luxembourg.

The beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a medium thickness white head, nice bubbles. The aroma is a bit of citrus and wheaty and yeast. The taste is more of the same. There is a nice refreshing taste to the beer, yeast and citrus. Not overly complex. The beer is easy drinking and not very filling.

Hazy yellow color with almost no head. Really spice heavy on the aroma. Lots of orange peel. Taste is also really orange forward but in a good way. Light body with a good amount of carbonation. Really good witbier overall.

This brew produces big bright white and rocky head. The body is hazy with a white/gold colored body. The foam sticks around quite well.

Aromas of coriander, clove and bubblegum, along with yeasty esters are what I detect.

There is an orangey taste, with a sugary finish like Topps bubblegum.

This feels very smooth, and has a slight oily finish.

This brew is very refreshing and makes for a great session beer. This is somewhat complex and keeps the mind pondered, but not distracting. Even the non-beer drinker (i.e. my wife) can even appreciate this one.
