A-Poured a hazy golden color w/frothy white head, but retention was short-lived.

S-Smooth and slightly sweet fruity/spicy bouquet. Bits of coriander, pear, orange and citrus.

T&M-Prickly carbonation w/smooth light body. Delicate fruit and spice w/wheat upfront. Light clove. Finish sticks and leaves aftertaste which is not altogether unpleasant. Carbonation carries through well and perks up other aspects of its character.

D-Sessionable and lively...excellent summer sipper. Not very distinguishable from other beers of this style.

I just picked up a 6 pack of this beer in 25 cl bottles at the Auchan supermarket in Luxembourg.

The beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a medium thickness white head, nice bubbles. The aroma is a bit of citrus and wheaty and yeast. The taste is more of the same. There is a nice refreshing taste to the beer, yeast and citrus. Not overly complex. The beer is easy drinking and not very filling.

Hazy yellow color with almost no head. Really spice heavy on the aroma. Lots of orange peel. Taste is also really orange forward but in a good way. Light body with a good amount of carbonation. Really good witbier overall.

L: gives of a cloudy straw yellow color. Small top of head that disolves quickly. Decent lacings on the glass.

S: citrus fruits,corriander,gloves and yeast.

T&F: much as the nose. Fruity and fresh start, citrus fruits with different spices like gloves,corriander and peppercorns. In the finish I sense more sweet dryness. The aftertaste last for a good while. I just don't think the taste ever get very exiting.

O: a easy drinking and good witbier. Is just exiting enough in the taste compared to other witbiers
