A- Pours a golden champagne color with a white head.

S- A WHISP of spice notes and citrus.

T- Refreshing and clean tasting with hints of coriander and grapefruit, it's basically a wheat beer though. It's nothing overpowering, if anything, it's a little underwhelming. It tastes more like watered down white wine but this beer would be good on a warm summer night.

Food Pairing- The makers of this beer say that this beer is meant for dining and I can see why, it's very light and has low alcohol. I could see this pairing well with some fish and root vegetables.

The brewers bill this as a beer designed specifically to go with food, and I see where they are coming from. This is not a beer you sit and sip by itself (an anti-session beer?). It does have a white wine-like character to it.

Pours cloudy golden with a huge fluffy head. Malty, wheaty aroma, slight citrus and spice. Nice lacing. The flavor is sour wheaty, astringint, with a hint of spice, apricot and citrus. The mouthfeel is thin with a little sourness in the back. White wine like. Light. As it warms, apple notes become quite pronounced.

Bottle stamped 07/11 L190216 poured to tulip glass. The beer pours a golden yellow with a small 1 finger white cap with little retention and little lacing. The aroma is faint but provides a floral light citrus fruitiness flavor. Heavy wheat influence here. Just like the nose the flavor is wheat heavy, too much so, in my opinion. The crisp fruity sweetness is very much subdued. Lighter bodied and decently carbonated. Overall, not much going on here. The little booklet suggests the beer is made to be paired with food. I paired mine with a baked chicken. The beer did nothing for the food nor me. Not sure it's worth close to the asking price. Not bad, not great.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1B adapted). Bottle 75 cl - Batch L080201. AROMA: sweet grainy lager profile background with faint orange and spicy notes and very faint coriander. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: pale yellow color and translucent. thin white head with low retention. TASTE: coriander and orange flavours with a grainy sweet profile. low bitterness. finishes semi-sweet. PALATE: thin body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a watered down pale lager aromatized with some wit notes and nothing more.

A- Body is a completely transparent golder yellow hue with bubbles seen steadily rising to the top. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy white head which fades to about 1/2 finger and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.

S- Nose is very mild. Grain, wheat, pale malt. Not really much to offer.

T- Taste is much the same. Bready grain. All the way through-no color or complexity to it.

M- Medium to high carbonation and somewhat bready light body.

D- This is a very simple wheat beer. It is certainly no witbier as there are no spices, herbs, or citrus. Just wheat and grain. This beer is not bad, its just bland and very boring. I can't write much more about it because there isn't anything else to it.

Split with some friends and paired with many different types of sushi.

A- golden yellow almost perfectly clear. A bit of head but it quickly disappears.

S- very little nose. Just kind or crisp and clean. Maybe a spot of sparkling cider.

T- simple and clean. Wheat and a bit sweet and dry.

M- very effervescent really works well to clean the palate between bites.

D- its a rather tame beer but super drinkable. Pairs well with lots of stuff but I guess that's what they were going for. Easy drinking here.

A - Orange pour with a high white foam that settles quickly. Some cabonation is noted.

S - Scents or fresh oranges, light grains, and some funky yeast. All are very subtle however.

T - I found this to be a generally weak witbier. The citrus sweet flavors came across kind of mild. There is some flavor of fresh wheat bread, and a dash of spice. But overall I'd like to see this a bit more robust.

M - Certianly easy drinking. While a bit thin, it does seem generally balanced well and would be quite sessionable.

O - A novely beer from Spain and honestly, I prefer Mahou better. Worth trying but givren the price and packaging I expected more.

Appearance: light pale gold, cloudy, thin white head.

Smell: very nice at first, but disipates quickly. Initial aroma is muscat grapes.

Taste: light malt and wheat, some coriander, and orange. I found it lacking in the flavor department, I needed more.

Mouthfeel: thin and slick.

Drinkability: refreshing on a hot day, but I would choose one of the many other witbiers first.

Hazy straw color with a strong amount of activity. Slightly frothy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 to 15 minutes, with a good amount of legs.

Flavors of citrus lemon and lime, sweet grains, fresh floral feel, some herbal hops. The flavors are a little faint with high sweetness. A little roasted and grassy.

Slick light body with champagne like carbonation. Light and short finish, ending with a sharp zesty feel of citrus and flowers with a faint hoppy grassy feel.

Overall average quality craft. Decent flavors that are too faint, a weak body and low freshness from a flat feel. Highly acidic and overly sugary.

Courtesy Paul B, thanks amigo. Decent enough. Poured with a small off white head and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a cloudy amber. Aroma is quite a mild spicey, citrus, yeast, and malt. Flavors the same only bolder. Body is a bit thin but good carbonation. Finish is like flavor and fairly short. Could be a session for the right mood.

Clear straw gold with puffy white head that doesn't hang around. Vague lemon peel and creamed wheat nose.
Cream cracker and light lemon barley with herbal end and some spice tingle.
Thin but creamy and lively.

Feeble. In designing a food beer that is all things to all people, this has been dumbed down by committee to lack any real character. Inoffensive in the worst way.

330ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.19):
This one was a little bit of a let down for me after I'd waited so long to get my hands on a bottle, the beer was definitely a light one and there was nothing truly noteworthy of it but it was an easy enough beer to drink in spite of this. The taste, and smell for that matter were both good but didn't seem especially strong meaning it was a bit of a struggle to pick anything up from this one sadly.

Good looking bottle; like a Champagne bottle. Pale yellow color with a thin white head. Minimal wheat aroma. Taste is like a bland impression of a good Belgian witbier. Very little of the coriander/citrusy flavor I expect from the class. Fairly light bodied, and quite easy drinking. Not something I'd go out of my way to buy again.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a pint glass

A- white foamy head which quickly dissipates, light amber color, slightly cloudy.

S- Odd buttery aroma with slight citrus and hop notes, some spice in the back round, almost anise... Hard to pin down.

T- Light... TOO light and quite sweet. Hints of orange peel bitterness come through with a slight spice kick.

M- Feels almost flat in the mouth, actually, watery is a better way of putting it. Odd as the head was impressive before it faded.

High praise for the concept, but the execution leaves A LOT to be desired. This beer would rock in an imperial version but as it is, it's like that Eric Idle comment on American beer (something about a canoe...). I wanted to love this beer and after reading the mini booklet that came with the bottle, I was expecting so much more
