Tåkete gyllengult med fint hvitt skum. Pære veldig fremtredende i duften sammen med litt moden banan og krydder. pære også smaken sammen med mer tradisjonelle smaker for en wit. Litt tørr avslutning.

Can, best before 15.4.2017, from cogo, drunk 8/9/16, thanks, Christer!
A small, white head tops a lightly hazy, bright, tangerine-golden body. Retention is moderate.
With a bit of age on it, the spices/herbs have faded leaving more Belgian esters (light lemon, tangerine, apple and a hint of banana) and balanced maltiness (cookies, vanilla, biscuit, wheat). It’s exceptionally clean, as Aegir has proven to be 100% of the time now, through 6 or 7 of their beers. It’s nice they leave some yeast behind, which no doubts aids in this. Light bubble gum, juicy citrus and soft honey lingering on the finish, with very gentle acidity and pepper phenols and no alcohol.
In the mouth there’s light herbal dryness and pepper, balancing a touch of honey, lots of dry wheat and a soft, moderately carbonated texture. Very mild flavors all around, but the malt and wheat is highly enjoyable, and complements the phenols in keeping the beer dry. Again, nothing flashy, but just solid and very well-executed to-style.

Tölkki @ Viking Gabriella. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on sitruunaisen ja pippurisen mausteista belgihiivaa, yrttiä, viljaa ja greippiä. Maku on edelleen sitruunainen ja pippurinen, nyt hiivaisuus on tuntuvampaa ja viljaakin tuntuu enemmän. Suutuntuma on raikas, yllättävän napakasti humaloitu ja kuivahko. Hyvin tehty, hieman humaloidumpi witbier, johon saatu hyvin makua raikkauden kärsimättä.

Yellow color. Medium carbonation. Aromas of coriander, oranges, and yeast. A bit more of everything than traditional wits. A tad more body. A tad sweeter, More coriander. More hops. Finishes dry, with the coriander and hops sticking for a while. Nice break from the usual, but won’t blow you away.
