Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color with white head. Banana, bread, and some light fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some biscuity notes.

Interesting witbier with a light herb taste. Very refreshing feeling while drinking it. Nice bottle design.

330ml bottle served in its own Weizen style glass.

A: Pours a cloudy yellow color forming a big and creamy white head. Good retention and some thin and lingering lacings in the glass

S: Very spice and herby in the nose. Strong notes of coriander, orange zest, sweet pale grains, wheat and flowery hops. Fruity and but at the same time, bready

T: Sweet upfront. Very spice taste as expected by the smell. Notes of oranges, pale malts and wheat. Very light bitterness. Quite close to a Witbier

M: Light body. Medium carbonation and a slightly sweet and spicy aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Great Weissbier/Witbier ;)

Pours hazy yellow with medium white head

Smells of fruits and spices.

Tastes fruity (pears and apples) with some strange. Spice. I compare it to the spices you would get from a Ricola cough drop but I'm a good way. Some bubblegum sweetness on the end.

Mouthfeel- Crisp and refreshing with some good carbonation.

Overall- Really good beer. I bought it because it was only 3.50 at the super market but man was I pleasantly surprised. Great summer beer which I will be coming back to when it gets hotter.

Poured into the Edelweiss glass, one finger of head on a hazy light straw colored body.
The aroma is faint lemon. Some more of something would have been nice.
The taste is wheat throughout with some mild lemon bitterness. Enjoyable.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable drink that tends towards a single wheat profile.
