Brown bottle; says ABV is 4.7%, rather than the 5.0% listed--but this could simply be a product of import/export laws and such nonsense.

Anyway. This stout lil' bottle pours into my plastic cup (in a cheap hotel--my bad) a hazy yellow, maybe with a hint of orange. Think dehydration. Not much head, not much lacing.

Smell is typical--but mild--wit. Clove, coriander, wheaty, some citrus peel. Peppercorns. But all quite muted. Comparing this to the Unibroue Blanche de Chambly I consumed earlier tonight, it's almost weak. Also some decent pale malt, maybe a bit of biscuit or cracker, and a touch of herbal. It's light, but there's something likeable here, almost combining a wit with a pilsner or pale lager. That state of affairs comes through on the taste, too, good body, fairly effervescent--but an interesting pale lager-meets-witbier flavour of biscuit/cracker/herbal with coriander/clove citrus.

A nice beer. Nothing earthshaking, but certainly I'm happy to have tried it, and would drink it again.

L: Hazy yellow with almost a clear or pale colour to it.

S: Crazy amount of citrus on the nose with a little bit of a spicy coriander smell to it as well.

T: Lime Lemon Orange And other citrus flavors I can't put my finger on has a very very mild coriander taste to it which makes it a little spicy.

F: Nicly carbinated which keeps the flavors on your young for a while.

O: A pretty good beer, probably wouldn't pick up another one just because of how simple it is.

Nice witbier, but kind of traditional. Not special at all.
Good for those who like spicy beers of course, taste and smell are made basically of coriander, citrus, wheat and soursop notes.

Very specific beer, amazing aroma and feel. Strong in my opinion. Hard to describe, you need to try this.

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.

Light and crisp with lots of floral refreshing nose. Chalky and cloudy feel, though.

Very light beer, but not boring like your typical adjunct lager.

This beer is very good for the summer, though it is disappointing when depth is sought out. I had this beer in some underground bar in Shanghai, where the beer culture is nowhere as vibrant as in the United States, so in the given situation, I was satisfied.

For a white beer, I prefer something with more clove/banana such as in the UFO White (to go basic). Allagash has a fantastic White beer. This one is drinkable. Very crisp to taste, but aroma was not memorable.

Fizzy & spicy. Color pours a pale yellow with a disappointing head.
