This is a light and smooth belgian witbier style, made in Strasbourg, France. It pours a fine yellow liquid with a little foamy head. Orange taste is very present, with some subtle spicy notes. It goes down easy. I recommend it for those who cannot take Franziskaner or Hoegaarden, but still would like to enjoy some beer in that style. 3.85/5

Pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head and also has some lacing. Fruity and skunky on the smell. Taste and feel are both good, light body and lemon lime flavor. Not bad on a hot day.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy golden amber with a nice, fluffy head. Citrus and spice in the nose. The mouth enjoys the light malt and then lightly citrus flavor. Easy to drink! Enjoyable!

It is a lighter beer that has a skunky smell and is sweeter. A very different taste than I was expecting. First couple of sips I didn't like at all but it is growing on me.

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Cloudy pale yellow color with almost one finger of foamy white head that stays for a short while and collapses to only some bubble sheet along with not much amount of lace.

Wheat grain, lime, lemon rind, sweet honey, and some spice in a nose.

Grain forwards in the taste while lime and lemon peel provide their zesty tang shortly thereafter. Some spice closely follows while the end is all those aforesaid flavors mixed up together.

The body is light to medium with some crisp and lively carbonation generated semi-smooth mouthfeel through the palate, dry finish.

Not that bad, refreshing and easy to drink Wit but still a bit flat by overall.

Very nice appearance, with a pineapple juice colored body, and a fluffy white head of 2 fingers. Leaves wonderful skirted lace as it recedes.

Aroma is just heavenly. Canned peaches, with some apple and pear notes. A few tropical notes as well.

Flavor is a bit on the thin side, but the aftertaste is great. It goes some light wheat and grain notes, followed with fruit cocktail and peach. Some circus peanut on the finish, too.

Super, super carbonated...but you know what, it drinks so easy it's hard to knock it. I like it a lot.

Overall, I will probably be buying this often. I really enjoyed this, it's better than most people make it seem. A sleeper hit.
