Green stumpy 33cl bottle with loads of life left according to the best before date. Poured into an old Berliner Kindl 0.4 litre straight sided glass.

Pale, cloudy yellow body with a pure white head, just about clear enough to see bubbles rising through and up to the head.

Thought there would be more of a nose, some yeast and grapefruit, but nothing very strong.

Weak flavours of watered down fizzy lemon juice, not overly impressed.

Strange feel to the beer, I am no expert on the Witbier style but this is the 13th I've reviewed on BA and this is one of the worst to date.

Not even the sharp, refreshing tang you normally get from Witbiers, a poor effort from a well respected brewery. I'll not be seeking this out again.

A good head. The nose, slightly bitter, slightly reminiscent of the smell of lager, one feels also the wheat, and fairly strong. The entry on the palate is a little spicy but the beer quickly becomes acidic. Unfortunately, we pin too fast a flagrant lack of taste.

Bottle of 330 ml, at home. Poured into a weizen glass. ABV is 4,7%. Medium head for the style, about one and a half fingers, white in colour and soapy in texture. Left some light lacing as it went down, in a short period of time.Only a slighty hazybess on the body, looks pretty clear. Average activity in the glass. Banana, clove and citrus aromas on the nose. Sweet taste with a very faint sourness on the finish. Quite boring, also some citrus fruits on the taste, but that’s pretty mush it. Overall, below than your average wit beer, it lacks lots on the taste.

Poured from a 330 mL shorty into a wine glass in Sao Paulo, BR. It says 4.7% ABV, not 5%. Pours light golden, pretty clear but with a slight haze, foamy head. Very strong aromas of banana and coriander, other spices, wheat, typical witbier. Its light body somehow allows the fermented cereal malts and milled corn to feature prominently in the taste, which is not a plus. I could pass on this one.

Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with white hue and a large enough white head with OK retention. Aroma of light wheat malt and citrus notes is OK. Taste of weak wheat malt and light zesty undertone sis a bit weak. Body is light with good carbonation. Short on complexity and drinkability is just not high enough to compensate.

From Hipercor, last units. In Weiss Damm glass. Watching Breaking Bad 1x07. Average wit. A bit more citric than I would like. Avg 3.59.

24 Jun 2017. In Teku glass. At lunch, with rice soup + turkey steaks. Carbonation hides its wateryness except at the end of the sip. The usual spicyness of the style is a bit high than desiderable.

won this in a lif, poured into my duvel tulip glass, poured a cloudy yellowish white color with a head for days, the smell is sour with a hint of spices. the taste in this one a bland sour in the begining the middle is ciniman =, safron, some light malt at the start, then the end is sour with a bitter finish, this is an ok vershion of a witbier but one is enough for me

A- had this on tap at popeye's in Tokyo. A very pretty golden blond. A bit cloudy. Nice pour.

S- very light smell. A little spice. Not much else other than clean.

T - more spice than the nose. Some bitter citrus notes.

M - flavorful without being too overwhelming. Par for the style.

O- would definately drink again in Tokyo since it's a bit more drinkable than hitachino white. will come back for one in the summer.

Very pale colour, interesting, and a archetypical witbier smell of corainder, orange and lemon. The taste and feel explain the extremely pale appearance though: they are both way too watery for my liking. There is also a quite dominating lemon flavour in the taste. There are far better (more balanced and complex) witbiers out there.

330ml bottle bought from GapWines, Belfast...

Poured a hazy straw yellow colour... White head poured quite foamy then faded quickly to very thin layer....quite a lot of big carbonation bubbles punch the surface... some light patchy lacing...

Aroma - Very light spicy fruitiness (lemons, pears, some grapefruits), salty notes, some yeastiness, some light hops just coming through, grassy, light honey notes...

Taste - Light lemon fruitiness, also some spicy apples, grassy, floral, barely any malts, some light spicy hops, very light sugary sweetness, some coriander notes...

Feel - Pretty sharp and dry. Light body. Fairly drinkable but just a bit boring to have me coming back for more...

Overall - A bog standard witbier... not something i'd be rushing back to as there are much better examples out there...
