look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I had a bottle at Posterie in Ieper.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden with a thick, ecru head that fades to a thin film leaving heavy lace.

Smell: Sweet and fruity with bananas, tart orange, some sweet malt, pepper and coriander.

Taste: Sweet bananas, some orangey tartness, with a light spiciness and a light graininess in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, low carbonation, dry graininess and warming alcohol.

Drinkability: Too sweet.

The pour is a nice "Chill Hazed" golden orange, the head modest in size and frothy in its consistency with the lace a fine covering sheet. Light aroma of coriander, orange peel, sweet and fresh, crisp is also a term to apply to this beer’s fine nose. Mostly malt at the start, lightly sweet, top a bit on the skinny side and the finish spitefully acidic, modestly hopped, aftertaste almost a grapefruit tart, drinkable, but not a “Major League” beer in my humble opinion.

It pours a cloudy, light golden with a long lasting head. It is a bit darker than expected, but still looks like a wit. The aroma has corriander and some citrus. It is slightly sweet up front with a creamy orangeness and yeasty notes in the light body. It finishes dry and spicy. It is nice and refreshing and goes down very easily.

Colour typic of a wit, with the classic turbidity.
The head is very little persistent, and scarce.
Even the smell is quite typical, but is a little unpleasant.
The taste is too citric, and it left something dry in mouth.
It's a beer not to retaste...
