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

Wonderfully tart and bombastic Belgian witbier. The taste is looong and the bitterness very well balanced with acidity and sweetness. Recommended for those who like wheat beer.

As far as wits are concerned, it doesn’t get much better than this. It is light, refreshingly tart, beautifully spiced with more than just coriander and bitter orange peels - i think nutmeg for sure and maybe some cardimum. The spices linger in the background as the lightly bittered beer flows easily with wheat and bitter oranges being the prominent flavors. This is my favorite wit, it is extemely hard to find in North America - in fact this is the only beer that I’ll import a couple of cases yearly. Just lovely.

Wineguru (5) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2014 does not count
Some may cringe at the score, but it is the best in its class by far and simply my favourite sessional beer on the planet. It is refreshing, great mouth feel, easy drinking, still flavourful and has a great citrusy finish that does not pretend to be anything else. For me the best wit bier I’ve tasted and I have tasted many. I too like massive complex beers that exited the senses, but when I want a sit back and just drink sessional beer (or palate cleanser between), I can’t go past this. If you want a "big beer" then drink something else as it is not meant to be over complex, but it is made very well and delivers on what it should be.

Espuma: Blanca, jabonosa, abundante. Color: Paja pálido, turbia. Apenas ascienden burbujas y son de tamańo medio. Intensidad aromática: alta Aroma: Principalmente flores (rosas), trigo, cítricos (limón). Entrada en boca/amargor: Dulce, suave como el terciopelo. Nada de amargor ni de acidez. De trago fácil. Sabor: Trigo, cítricos, floral. Anotaciones: WBA Best Wheat Beer. Cuando te la acercas a la boca tienes la sensación de que vas a beber rosas.

My favourite witbier just ahead of Weihenstephaner. It is the slightly less fruitiness and that hint of extra acidity that makes this so good.
