look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 75cl Bottle to an Erdinger glass.

A: The body is truly crystalline with a fainted yellow color. The head has good retention and leaves trails of lacing.
S: The smell is tricky, I've found notes of something tree-y, with a citrus & hops background profile.
T: Citrus, wheat but sweeter, not bitter as expected from witbiers.
M: Less consistent, less bready than the usual wheat beer but it's actually great.
O: I came here because of WBAs and I got surprised in a good way. Will search for more like this.

Poured into a regular glass from a 0,25 cl bottle.
-The regular look for a witbier. Pale yellow, very opaque. Lots of foam.
-Citric smell.
-A very nice taste. Not bitter at all, unlike other witbiers.
-The feel is really nice.
Overall I would describe it as a superb witbier.

From elcervecero. In Weiss Damm glass. After dinner. A standard witbier, with more lemon in its taste than I would like but not bad

Hazy, yellow, beer with a three finger high, white, head that leaves a lot of lacing.

Nose: Koriander, citrus, lemon, orange and Belgian yeast.
Taste: Citrus, coriander and orange zest. Tart.
Body: Medium to light. Soft carbonation. A light bitterness.

Great summer-beer!
