look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Poured from can into a wilibecher glass. Pours a hazy, very pale straw color with a finger-and-a-half head of fine foam that dissipates relatively quickly to a half-finger foamy cap.

Aroma: Belgian yeast and spiciness, orange peel, coriander. Slight metallic-y twinge?

Taste: Sweet, wheat-y malt flavors transition into slight spiciness with a mild citrus tang in there as well.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, lively carbonation.

Overall: Very nice, drinkable witbier. Nothing too exciting, but certainly nothing offensive

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pours with 2 thumb thick white bulky foam, fast retention, stays on top till the end. Yellow wheat, cloudy color. Moderate carbonation. Some spices float around. Moderate lacing.

Smell: Not much, but pleasant, fresh. Wheat, some banana, slightly spicy, pilsnerish hops.

Taste: Easy. Some fruits and banana at start, light sweet wheat middle and ends in mild hop bitterness. Missing some middle, a bit watery.

Mouthfeel: Crisp carbonation, light-med body. Fresh and simple.

Overall: Easy, fresh and simple. Nothing too exciting, random, but does it's job.

Pours a pale straw color with small foamy head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of fruit, some coriander, wheat, spice and touch of yeast. Taste of citrus, fruit and spice with some wheat. Mild bitterness with a tart finish. Fairly light body, quite smooth with a bit of a grainy texture. Decent beer for the style but nothing special.

I don't usually like witbier and to be honest I bought this thinking it was a sour because of the name. Still, turned out to be quite refreshing. I really love the smell but it dissipates quickly and the head as well. Flavor wise this is pretty good.

Milky light yellow color with a two finger head with good retention.
Nice aroma of banana, oranges, coriander, Curacao liquor (likely combination of laraha and alcohol)
Original flavor, wheaty with notes of oranges (probably laraha peel), lots of bubblegum, pineapple, coriander, pear and lemongrass. Dry aftertaste, slightly acid.
Medium body with medium carbonation.
Tasty Witbier, good for a change even if you have a preferred brand given its originality.
