Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light coriander notes with some wheat cereal notes. Taste is also dominated by some medium coriander notes with some wheat malt and light dry orange peel notes. Body is a bit light with medium carbonation. Definitely not the best beers from this brewery with not enough wheat malt presence.

341ml Bottle - from the Broue Haha for around 3$

Appearance - Hazy yellow/amber colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Lemon, grains, yeast, coriander/cloves, floral

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste lemons, yeast, and grains/bread. There is also some clove and coriander and some light fruit esters. It ends with a zesty and lightly tart aftertaste.

Overall - As others have mentioned, it needs a little bit more from the wheat department, but it's still a fairly decent brew. I wouldn't buy it again but it was worth a shot.

341mL bottle bought at the brewery. Served into a tulip glass. No freshness date.

A - Pours a very bright yellow color with a 1-finger white head which leaves a ring after a couple of minutes. Rather clear for the style, though some yeast has been poured into the glass. Moderate lacing.

S - Complex smell, very close to what I was expecting: yeast, citrus, spices. The whole blend makes something powderish and very pleasant.

T - Orange and lemon dominate the taste. The spices are missing a bit and the hop adds a bitterness slightly overpowering to my taste.

M - Medium bodied, this beer has an excellent carbonation.

O - Without featuring the complexity of some Witbiers, this beer is good and refreshing. I would drink it again in hot summer days!

Not sure if I will ever get to drink it. Mega carbonation as the beer exploded on opening with foam pouring out. I have poured some out and it is still snaking out the top of the bottle minutes later. Faint Belgian aroma. Very light with hints of citrus, but only hints. Based on the pour, mark will be lower.
