Pours a hazy, pale yellow color with a weak carbonation and two fingers of white foamy head.
The aroma is wheaty, slighty yeasty (not nice) along with some fruits to improve the situation.
The taste starts sweet and spicy and continues with a bit of yeastiness. Finish is bitter, but another reminder why I don't really like wheat beers. Not a bad one, just not my style.

Served on-tap at Cafe t'Molentje in Amsterdam. Served in its own branded glass. On to the beer:

This witbier is paler yellow in color with a haziness and whisps of lace sticking around the glass. The nose is spicy; big spicy coriander note with pepper, and a kiss of tart lemon. That will perk you up in the late morning. Still quite spicy to taste, though there's a little more fruitiness to stand up. Lemon comes first, then quick pepper and coriander notes. The beer gaines a fruitiness similar to orchard fruits with more sips. The beer is lighter medium, with a pleasant crispness.

Pleasant enough wit, although its spiciness takes some getting used to.

On-tap at Het Konings Huis, Delft, Netherlands

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving some lacing down the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat and orange citrus are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of wheat and orange citrus along with faint hints of coriander.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, thirst quenching and refreshing. It really hits the spot drinking this outside in a square in the sunshine on a nice spring day.

Bottle of 300 ml, at home. ABV 5%.
One finger of white head with average activity in the glass. Colour is pale golden, hazy and semi-transparent body. Foam has an average retention, leabing a thin line lingering around once gone.
Smell of citrus fruits, oranges.
Taste is not as sweet as I expected, with the orange peel quite notable.The korinader gives it some spicy notes, mostly on the aftertaste.
Medium body, very light carbonation. Very drinkable and a very good choice for a hot summer day.
