COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloďdal by cold). The cloudy appearance is created at low temperature but disappears when the beer gets warmer or when it is kept too long in the cold. Fine fruity with a scent of the used spice, coriander and bitter orange. Smooth beer, thirst-quenching but mild, slightly acidulous, powdery consistency on the tongue, not bitter

Bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat, mild coriander, bit of licorice. Taste is mild but pleasant enough. Light on the tongue - good carbonation, but maybe a touch watery at the same time. Not bad, though - easy drinker.

Pale refreshing witbeer. A bit too much carbonation, but lovely citrus aromas. The wheat taste comes in the finish and the aftertaste. Surprisingly good beer.

According to the bottle it won an award for being the best beer of its sort in the world. I wouldn’t go that far but it’s a good one. And it doesn’t have that sickly-sweet aftertaste that some wheat beers have.

Gedronken @ delirium. Troebel bier. Ruikt fris, smaak heeft wat weg van kuyt bier. Mooi met slechts 4,5%

Cloudy(well? This is a wheat beer after all.) Citrus and quite refreshing beer to drink. Good head retention. Nice to have cold one in hot summer day. Nicer than Hoegaarden in my opinion.

patricks110 (1780) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
A better than average Belgian wit. Midl sweetness and toasty, crisp wheat malts. The pour is a hazy yellow with a thick mess of white head. Pillowy, dense and cavernous. The nose is bright and floral with subtle spiced notes and a hint of orange rind or lemon zest. Mild malts with a bit of sweet fruit notes. The finish is crisp and clean with a hint of hop. Overall a nice, well balanced wit.

Good beer. I can see why win the Worlds Best Beer award for best wheat beer. Not a huge wheat beer fan but can appreciate it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
