this is the standard of all wit beers. smooth, taste is great, and no lingering bitterness. perfect. Its not extreem in flavor or alcohol content, so many will under rate this brew. If you want a witbeer that has drinkability unmatched, flavor so smooth, taste so perfect, this is the beer.

Very pale colour, really almost white. A good head that lives long enough.
Aroma is mainly citrus, with coriander and floral notes. Flavour has some acidity, but silky. Taste of citrus, floral notes, coriander, a bit hot.
One of the best anod more refreshing beers, wonderful as an aperitif or just alone in hot days.
