Swaroga (1247) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2012
33cl bottle. Light amber/orange with a medium white head. Nose : Orange and lemon lemonade like. Little hay and lightly caramelized malts. Sip : Creamy and oily, easy to drink. It has a little sweet beginning but it’s really brief. It develops a refreshing bitter taste and lasts. hay malts are well maried with hops. I’m really enjoying it. Extra points for a refreshing taste that goes well with this warm spring weather. I guess the taste changes, I drink different beer the winter and different at the summertime.

AshtonMcCobb (2308) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with steady bubbles and ample yeast! The head holds nicely throughout the drink. The nose has crystallised orange and lemon peel with sweet but delicate spice, almost like a sweet white pepper sensation. It’s CARDOMON! The taste has more tangy orange notes with cake mixture and spice to follow. The palate has a medium to full body, with an excellent thick, creamy but in a lot of ways, elegant texture, then the finish, drops off not to fast, to give excellent length. Overall, I think this is excellent, with so much going on for what is probably in Belgian terms a very lightly alcoholed beer.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2002
Sampled draught at Stockholm Beer Festival.
Pale yellow. Coriander and curacao aroma. Light bodied, sweet and very drinkable. Very interesting experiment to brew a non-wheat beer with witbier spices.

Refreshing and tasty at the same time. Interesting and complex spicy aroma and flavour with a pleasant touch of acidity.

Bottle, pours light orange to yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is wonderful, light candied sugar, malt, and citric hop notes. Flavor is dangerously top notch. This is on another plane than Westy blond, which I also love. The flavors are on the other end of the spectrum, very fresh hop bitterness, light malt sweetness and the bitter orange/coriander flavors prevalent in a Wit. Never-the-less, tastes extremely fresh, and is a beer I would love to have on more than one occasion.

Looks like a normal blond beer, but tastes very good. Has a smooth taste of yeast and notes of different fruits and some coriander. Pretty good.

JorisPPattyn (7771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2004
Orange-gold beer, very carbonated to irregular, slightly cream-coloured head. Great fruity nose - like mandarine peels, general impression as Mandarine Napoléon, but without the alcohol attack. Citrussy and spicey taste, grains of Paradise, Laosroot, touch of ginger, Curaçao peel. If there’s coriander, it remains hidden. Retronasal, there’s a bit phenolic flavour. Medium-bodied, bit dry-out effect, slightly slick. Very nicely spiced beer, no spice overreaching itself: excellent balance.
