The first thing I noticed in this beer is the lack of any yeasty flavor/aroma which is a huge plus in my book. Lovely bright color and a faint aroma of orange peel. Couldn't quite taste the coriander but it didn't bother me too much. Overall, a very refreshing beer.

33 cl bottle (bb 18062015) into a tulip. Hazy straw color, three finger white head, light lacing and ok retention.

Mild, fresh smell of tart wheat, orange peel and a hint of coriander.

Taste begins with orange and a little sugar, followed by lightly tart wheat and spices, ending with a slightly dry hop bitterness. The aftertaste is spicy, coriander and perhaps clove, and a little orange.

Light body, high carbonation. Overall a refreshing, flavorful witbier. A good summer drink that I would gladly have again, especially on a hot day.

Too wheaty and citrusy for me.
