Hazy yellow with fluffy head. Specific spicy witbier aroma. Taste is very balanced, a bit sweet and fruity at the start and a bit of bitterness in the end. Aftertaste lingers with spicy and wheat flavors. Carbonation is quite high. Overall this is a good example for the style.

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoyed on agtĀ“11. Pale straw color. Foggy. White, small sized bubbled, dense crown. Retention is good. Yeast & fresh citric, vanilla notes, bready crust hues & spices to the nose. Funny orange zest upfront. Sweet & peppery.Lemony in the middle. Medium body, medium carbonation. Melon touch & dry bitter finish. Orange hint & fruity aftertaste. Refreshing. Nice spot of the Wit style. Well balanced both flavors & aromas.Comment: last drop served with yeast sediments will show an intense orange flavor.

OK wit bier from Belgium. Hazy yellow, just a bit transparent color and a whitey foam that vanishes without leaving lace after one minute.
Aroma and taste are characterized by wheat. Some spicy tones can be seen, like a bit of cloves and coriander. Banana tones are the most easy to distinguish. Aftertaste is completely neutral, every taste vanishes after some seconds.
Body is average, carbonation is low, the beer is also somewhat dry.

Recently arrived from belgium, date code not legible but appears to end in 07.

Pours with a huge head, cloudly yellow beer. I have not had their other beers in a couple of years but the nose immediately reminds me of their triple and blond. Spicy hoppy nose with some wit-bier character thrown in.

Taste is somewhat confused. Not much wheat-beer notes but they are present, it is somewhat sweet and floral as well. I would describe this as a floral blond with wit-taste added in as a secoindary element. Fades into a mildly floral wheaty aftertaste, slightly bitter and underwhelming.

Pleasant beer, low alcohol so makes a nice session item, very refreshing.

Appearance : yellow color, with nice white foam head (not persistent).
Smell : Fruity and wheat aromas.
Taste and mouthfeel : yeast, citrus, coriander, fruity, well balanced.
Drinkability : a good and refreshing beer in the Belgian Witbier.

Pours hazy golden/amber beer with good white head, nice retention.
Smell is clear, lemon, coriander, biscuity belgian yeasts.
Taste flows out the smell - citrus, banana, wheat. There are some characteristics of belgian pale ale, owing to yeasts. Therefore, classic wit body wasn't reached. Non-classic, but refreshing and good.
