Extremely pale yellowish color with an ok whitey foam.
Smell is sweet and buttery. Same for the taste with more malty tones and banana tones. Spices arrives in the end.
Body is light, cabonation at good level.
Nice witbier but it should have a big personality.

Served cold from 330ml bottle bought from Morrisons supermarket for £1.79, into saison glass. The only Belgian wit bier I have had before is Hoegaarden, which I do like, so looking forward to this one.

A) Very cloudy pale lemony yellow, with thick white head. Looks great, very different to most styles of beers.

S) Reminiscent of Hoegaarden; very spritzy Belgian yeast, with citrus overtones. Can't wait to try this one now.

T) I am expecting a lot of flavour from the smell, but the first thing that hits you is a watery refreshment, the flavour is all carried in the aftertaste. Lemony Belgian yeast flavour, hint of bitterness.

M) Light and refreshing, not as fizzy as you would expect from the head. No nasty aftertastes.

O) At 4.5% this is a light and refreshing beer. My main complaint is that it comes in a 330ml serving. At this ABV it does not compete with other Belgian styles for a satisfying slow drink, and it doesn't compete with refreshing German styles (Pilsner, Helles, Kolsch) served in 500ml bottles. Anyhoo I am glad to have tried it and would recommend anyone give it a go at this price.
