330 ml chilled bottle - Belgium Beer Factory. Hazy yellow pour with small white head which disappears quickly. Low carbonation and lacing. Medium spicy smell. Light fruity, sweet taste. Okay but no great shakes.

Hazy yellow color with a one finger head with low retention.
Light aroma of bread, lemon and pineapples.
Flavor of pineapples, spices, green apples, wheat, pear and just a light touch of spices, including coriander. Aftertaste with a medium acidity.
Light to watery body with low carbonation.
A very light and refreshing beer. In my opinion, far from bad, but still on the lower range of Witbier. Too bland, though I liked the fruity profile.

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoyed on agt´11. Pale straw in color. Chill haze. White, close crown ,fairly well retention. Yeasty –fresh bread-, floral & slightly spiced aromas. Lemon zest at first sip, mildy spicy. Lemon overwhelms all flavors. Watery in the middle. Medium body, high carbonation. Fruity dry finish. Quite refreshing.

A: Pale looking with a withe head as it should, carbonation is rich as should also and it is cloudy but must be old because there are a lot of solid particulates floating inside of the beer. Retention was not so good and head was not so big.

S: Smell is clear it has the main ingredients of a witbier such as wheat and a citrus or herbal character some maybe not as intense as could but there they are.

T: Flavors are good, the yeast, wheat, maybe some orange peel and or some other herbs.

M: Nice sensation since the beginning just with a little bitter sensation at the end not expected.

Silver paper wrapped neck on a 330ml brown bottle (4.9%ABV), best before Dec 2013: poured into my Berliner Kindl 0.4 Litre tumbler in Mar 2012.

The pour was slow, allowing the beer to leave the sediment in the bottle (I prefer it that way).

Very, very pale straw body, slight haze and with bubble trails rising up towards a good deep head of white.

The smell was citrusy, mild lemon and grapefruit mostly, very summery.

Thirst quenching with a tangy bite of citrus flavours, better than I expected: I'm not a huge fan of this style, but this was OK.

This carried the flavours well, light and easy to drink.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: No head, some rising microcarbonation, slightly cloudy urine in color.
S: Peach, pear. With the tinge of alcohol, it smells just like pear juice gone bad.
T: Really tastes more like a strange pear cider than beer. Certainly not like a witbier. Closest beer it resembles is a belgian sour. Tangy. Sweet and sour.
M: Barely any carbonation. Slightly mouthpuckering due to the sourness.
D: Barely. I won't dump it but, it's almost there.
