COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloïdal 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

33cl bottle, pale yellow colour, huge collapsing white head, fresh lime aroma with wheat and coriander notes, light citrus sweet flavor, light (but not watery) body, not interesting finish with some coriander aftertaste (translating this rate from english to italian with google is a mystical experience, it say: "the light of sweet citrus")

750 ML Bottle-Cloudy yellow color w/a slight white head. Spiced wheat aroma. Flavors of wheat, citrus & spice. A lot drier than many Witbiers, but very refreshing, light & easy to drink. Had some carbonation to it. Solid brew, not spectacular...but solid

Ron (3059) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2009
I wanted a decent Witbier on my 50th birthday, so I grabed this out of my beer cellar. It poured a beautiful hazy yellow color with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Flavor is lots of citrus, wheat and some coriander. Soft mouthfeel. A little tart, but a very refreshing Witbier.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2009
Bottle 25cl. Pours a murky light yellow colour with little carbonation and a good size head. Very fruity lemony aroma to it, has good notes of lime and raisins there too. Taste is rather dissappointing, was expecting a bit more from this. Has some nice lemon there, but nothing special.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Straw yellow body with a large, foamy white head that has no intention of leaving. Beautiful aroma of lemon and peach with a soft clove presence. Crisp and fairly light, diminishing after taste, the faintness of the whole mouth feel detracts from making this exceptionally refreshing. On the other hand the bottle could be enjoyed fairly quickly if one were very thirsty. Flavor is a tad dull compared to the wonderful aroma. Same fruitiness, but the spices are more subdued. A dry, grassy flavor comes forward as well as a hint of banana. Decent Witbier, but I’ve found better ones here in the states.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2009
1pt9.4oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a quick disapating white head. Smells of lemon, orange and wheat malt. Tastes of lemon, orange zest, corriander, wheat, and candy sugar. Body is a little thin and carbonation is a little light, but overall, its a great refreshing beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a white golden hazy body with a big white head. Citrus, coriander, wheat and lemon grass, a bit dusty and faded i suspect poor keeping conditions. Decent i guess.

CanIHave4Beers (3575) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 13, 2009
I’ve been drinking all kinds of witbier as of late, sheesh. This pours a hazy whiteish yellow with a big white head. Aroma is fruity pebbles with some orange and spicy yeasty notes. Flavor is nice and drier for the style, some lemon and a little bitter orange peel. Somewhat spicy, pretty good all together.
