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.

Appearance - Anyone who rated the looks badly doesnt know what a wit looks like because this is on point. It poured a hazy straw color with 3 fingers of bubbly white head, Carbonation seems pretty lively too.

Aroma - Lemon seems to be the most prominent smell here, then I get orange peel, coriander, some light mango, and a pale malt that I wouldnt call bready, more crackery, average smelling wit, its alright but nothing special.

Taste - Lemon and a very light orange peel are the most up front flavors here, it is a lemonade type lemon not overly sour. then theres some mango and melon, lots or coriander spicing up the back end, and some light pale malts.

Feel - This beer has a superlight watery body with sharp carbonation which gives it a real soda water feel to it. light and fizzy is where I think wits should be however I think it should have just a little less sharpness.

Overall - This is a very light beer with a sweet upfront taste and light spice on the end, I Think the sweet fruity flavors and light body give it a nice summertime appeal. I would enjoy this while sitting on a terasse on a sunny day in the middle of the city. Cheers!
