This beer pours a pale yellow and is less cloudy than the other wits. It also has a more intense flowery, citrus aroma than other Witbieren and offers up a series of spicy, fruity, herbal tastes. It is hard to pin down exactly what specific citrus and fruit flavors are wandering around in this beer but they are there. There is not a lot of carbonation but the beer is refreshing, a touch dry and drinkable.

Pours orange with a quickly fading head.
Aroma of orange peel, herbal notes, soft farmhouse notes. Quite acidic.
Similar flavours, more tartness and some big mandarin notes. More orange peel, somewhat herbal.

750 ml bottle at Delirium Cafe in Brussels, no bottle date that I can find, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of white head, nice retention and spotty lacing.

S- Funky, lots of citrus peel with a nice herbal element to it.

T- Very fruity, lots of pear, orange peel, some lemon, a bit tart towards the finish, some wheat sweetness as well.

M- Light-bodied, smooth feel, nice carbonation.

O- A nice wheat beer, actually quite flavorful and obviously very drinkable at 4.00% ABV, it's too bad we don't get this one in the US or I would buy it more often.
