A: Has a cloudy straw like yellow colour, frothy white head that is about a finger thick and stays as a thin layer until the end, little lacing.
S: Citrusy, a very distinct wheat smell, a "typical" wheatbeer-smell, although very fresh and light.
T: As the smell suggests a rather citrusy hop flavour, a nice wheat flavour, not as strong as for example a german wheat. Little hop flavours, not very bitter, a small sour note, very fresh, a little bit spicey, but really just a tiny bit.
M: Very nice carbonation, thick and creamy mouthfeel.
O: A beautiful widely available Witbier, lacks some characteristics of the style, although very balanced taste which makes it very refreshing on a hot day. The lable on the bottle recommends drinking it at 2-3°C which I found a little cold, I let it warm up to about 10°C which really supports a broader flavour and brings out the citrusy-flavours more.
