Has a sharp, piney smell and a cloudy look with lots of carbonation. Has a nice bready, fruity taste with a spicy finish...pretty tasty beer...I like it because its different from the American beers I usually drink...

My first review here...
Have to say, many reviewers have better language skills than I and described the complexities better than I could, and accurately.
I piked this beer up today because, as an old school typographer and ad man, I found the packaging to be beautifully done. I bought it with the expectation, based on the description, that my wife would really like it.
I was correct... and surprised. I love it, this stuff is beautiful!
Very clean and light feeling, nice blend of citrus flavors with high notes of peach, but real peach. No lingering aftertaste, no bitterness, very PLEASANT to quaff, refreshing to say the least. Great flavor, not "beery" or bitter (and I like IPA's).
I'm off to buy a case...

My neighbor who is a witbier fan loves this bier and donated a bottle. It is a good witbier, heavily flavored with fruit. There is abundant apricot and lemon which overpower any hop or yeast flavors. My wife, also a witbier fan, also loved this beer. Personally, I prefer the U.S. version, Blue Moon, to this heavily flavored concoction.

A fairly good French witbier. Widely available in the European Union. This is one of my regular during hot summer days and evening... plus it's cheap in France a la votre !

Poured from the tap into a 20 OZ mug. The appearance is a hazy light yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is heavy citrus with some spice and a slight maybe yeast smell. The taste is all citrus and a wee bit sour. A real good. beer.

From notes taken 05/11/16:

A nice, milky pale yellow, just barely clear. Head is fine, foamy, and off-white. It retains fairly well and as it dissipates leaves attractive ringlets of lace. Grain, honey, floral hops, and of course, orange peel and spices, these last two soon the strongest. Very citrus forward, both orange and lemon, but also quite perfumey. But different from the hop perfuminess you get in certain American craft selections. Could be more cucumber-like or grassy hops. Could be the spices. More distinct spiciness in aftertaste, though still light compared to everything else. Light- to medium-bodied, though hard to tell with how creamy and sloshy this carbonation is, though prickly as well. Delicious and refreshing. From a fun blue bottle to a sort of stunted weiss glass.
