750 ml. bottle from a friend and poured into a New Belgium globe glass. Pours a hazed lemon golden and somewhat clear in the light. Shows an inch or so of pretty sticky cap and lace.

Aroma leans to the sweet side and especially given yeast notes. Yet keeps it light on all fronts. Yeasty Tripel notes evident at times yet always contained by some wheat.

Taste is along the same lines. An interesting take on a wheat, offers a touch of sourness and a nice background funkiness. Slightly sweet and with a citric fruity character yet with an odd adjunct sense.

Quite different but good, nice yeast character on the aroma. I had limited expectations. They were exceeded easily. i will harvest this yeast, wow....

750 ml bottle poured into a small wine glass as suggested.

Many crazy, rushing bubbles originate from a globby white substance at the bottom of the glass, is it yeast? I've seen floatie bits of yeast but never one big chunk! It will remain a mystery until I finish the liquid! The color of pure golden bricks and a large, all-white head with decent retention from the crazy-ass bubbles. fine lacing in the wake of the flood.

Sweet and wild fruits greet the nose, raspberry and tart wild strawberries. Corriander and wheat malt, corn husks, herbal and zippy heat.

A light corn and wheat malt is a thin but effective flavor. Veery light bodied, zippy with a good amount of earthy goodness from the corriander and herbal hops. Slight spices and lemmon zest follow up with a not very complex range but very drinkable. It's light and herbal for summer.

Not exactly the holy grail of beers from the spainards but not bad at all.

750ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours a hazy straw colour with a white foamy head. Aromas of grains, lemon, yeast , light floral hops, banana, light pepper and coriander. Tastes is on the light side much of the former as well as sweet honey and caramel, citrus and a hint of spice. Aftertaste has a slightly dry fruity feel with a light bitter finish. Overall a very good effort of a blend of lager & wheat style beers.

It comes in an elegant bottle. There is a small booklet talking about the beer around the neck. I expected it to be fancy @ 9$ a bottle but it is Witbier, we will see how good of a witbier.

Pours darker than a normal witbier, but with the familiar giagantic foaming head. I like the darker color in comparison to most Hoegaarden-like Witbiers that are almost clear.

It smells more intense than a normal Wit, with orange and corriander being the obvious high points, but there is some other non orangey fruitiness too.

The taste is super fruity, tons of sugary orange in this one. There is also osme white peach in there too, it pairs nicely with food. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery but it finishes pretty dry.

This is an odd beer, it isn't that bad, it isn't worth the price but it isn't a bad beer at all. I wasn't expecting this high caliber brew for this brewery or this distinct of a brew.

Cool looking, up-scale bottle and packaging that I surmise is designed to sway the wine-favoring Spaniards to try this beer. It also says that it was specifically designed to pair with food, but doesn't mention what foods. On to the beer...

Hazy whitish-gold with orange highlights and adequate foamy, white head.

Nice spice blend in the aroma that follows to the palate along with lots of crackery wheat and drying, quenching tartness. Hops are pretty absent, which is in line with the style, and works well here as they let the beautiful spicing shine through.

Really a nice Wit. The spicing is just about perfect, noticeable, but not overwhelming, and the addition of licorice is a nice touch that sets this apart from most other Wits. Indeed, this would be a nice pairing with food, I'm thinking some mussels or other shellfish and/or a fresh leafy greens salad with vinaigrette. I'd take this over many American, and even a few Belgian versions of the style.

Tasted last night. Review from notes. Poured into a small glass at my Uncle Dave's House in Peninsula, Ohio.

A Kind of disappointing look of maybe an american lager with an off white bubbly head (although it was a 4 inch generous, long lasting head of about 3 minutes) over straw yellow translucent body with some carbonation rising up. Minimal amount of sediment (yeast, wheat?).

S Light wheat and spices of coriander, maybe cinnamon but none of it really strong. This smells a bit wimpy.

T Basic Witbier really. There is the nice texture of a Witbier and even some of the spices that come through in the last 1/3 of the taste spectrum but I was hoping for something "bigger" than what I got.

M Light to moderate with some grain feel and plenty of carbonation. Mouthfeel was a bit above average.

D Really quite good at reasonably low ABV and a pleasant enough beer.

Notes: Glad to have tried it but I will not likely buy it again. Just too boring.

The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a lightly hazed pale yellow color with a 1/4" ragged white head that recedes fairly soon leaving spotty lacing. Sipping leaves lots of small speckles of lacing. The ring around the glass and a very thin island of foam remain much longer.

The subtle aroma is full of coriander along with some wheat and orange zest.

The flavors show off a touch of malt sweetness along with the coriander and a bit of wheat. The herbal bitter hops are almost entirely hidden in the background

Mouthfeel is light and crisp and the light soft carbonation is refreshing. The finish is medium length and ends dry in a slight herbal bitterness.

Overall, an interesting beer with light clean flavors that should go well with food. Also this would be a a nice beer for a hot summer day. If you buy this expecting the full flavors of a Belgian wit you'll be disappointed, but this is a pleasant interpretation with many of the same flavors, but not as intense.

This isn't a stellar witbier, and I would have pegged it as a very bready, lemony, and fizzy lager, but witbier it is. This was a nice change up beer, quite light, a bit floral, very refreshing on a hot summer day. The beer isn't brilliant, but it was enjoyable at the time for what it was.

Poured from the 750ml capped bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. A big, lively, foamy white head forms but begins to dissipate almost immediately. Body is a bright golden color with active carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass.
Aroma is sweet, with heavy notes of vanilla and citrus. Lemon, grapefruit, banana, and clove all pop through. Palate is bright and airy up front, with a heavy lemon presence. A sweet vanilla flavor emerges mid-palate and builds all the way through the swallow, along with a good bit of banana flavor. Finish is heavy on the banana and also holds a touch of clove.
Body is light, bright, and airy, very refreshing and thirst-quenching. Although the flavor profile is a bit sweeter than I look for in a witbier, it's still quite pleasant, and the mouthfeel is lovely. A bit pricey, but a very enjoyable beer.
