Nice beer for a summer quaff. This beer's description says it's a winter beer, could be true, but it definitely has the feeling and taste of a warm weather beer, IMO. Good tasting beer though!

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.
