This poured a nice straw colour with a minimal head. It was hard getting much from the nose, maybe a very mild citrus but not much more. The taste was almost watery. Very little flavour wise a bit of honey sweetness near the finish but little else. I understand this is a light drink but a little too light for my tastes.

A witbier for New Year's....okay....

Extremely light gold and cloudy with very little head. Sweet citrus and corriander scent, with a mild, pleasing creamines to it...this apparently contains chamomile tea which might explain it.

The mild sweetness transfers into the taste. This is very light, almost too light. Witbier light? Very faint hoppiness and a light citrus bite. The carbonation saves this. Initially too fizzy, but let it breathe. It seems to hold a nice edge to it.

Okay, its light and probably wouldn't hold up to a hearty meal or even foods with strong flavour (unsalted crackers or plain popcorn might work), but the mildness and low ABV make this a good session beer.
