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, 0.75 l. Pale yellow with a clear white head. Aroma wasn’t very confident, but taste is good, typical for a wit, with a bit more lemon. Refreshing and easy to drink. No special finish. A very nice beer, although a little unbalanced.

DrGD (25) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Bottle. A very good witbier, with a nice cloudy golden colour, white creamy head, and spicy, yeasty aromas. The taste has fruits, spices, and wheat. A bit sweet, finishes a bit dry. Very pleasant!

alteregoo (213) - POLAND - APR 26, 2015
W szkle tworzy się potężna drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa biała piana, średnio trwała. Barwa jasno żółta, mocno mętna. Aromat kwaskowy, słodowy, melanoidynowy z minimalną ziołową kolendrą w tle. Nie pachnie za ładnie przez tą wyraźną kwaśność, natomiast smakuje wybornie. Niskie wysycenie, fajna słodowość, banany, nuty chlebowe, drożdżowe, kwiatowe i ziołowe. Goryczki prawie nie ma, za to w afterteasie delikatne owoce (pomarańcza?) i kolendra. Zarówno słodycz jak i kwaśność jest bardzo dobrze wyważona i pochodzi tylko od słodów, przez co przypomina troszkę kwas chlebowy. Świetnie zbalansowane, lekkie i odświeżające piwo. Pijalność astronomiczna - ze szklanki znika bardzo szybko! Idealne do ugaszenia pragnienia czy przepłukania kubków smakowych na festiwalach piwnych.

musehead (10) - Siena, ITALY - APR 20, 2015
Una blanche davvero molto buona, pallida e torbida come da scuola, cosě come lo sono le note speziate ed agrumate, con prevalenza delle seconde.Il cereale crudo si avverte appena, una maggiore presenza l’avrei gradita.

33 cl stubby bottle with a BB date stamp of 22 March 2016. Pours with a massive foamy head that dies down slowly and incompletely. Aroma: fruity and slightly funky Hints of floral soap. Flavor: largely follows the aroma. Mildly tart.

Bought at Meny Sarpsborg. Pours a nice, light yellow beer. The taste is of citrus , much like Kronenbourg. Not much wheat in this I?m afraid. Also a little too sour for my liking.

PabloZab (321) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Tap (Academus, Wroclaw). Barwa slomkowa, piwo zmetnione, piana biala. Ladny lacing. Aromat witbierowy, swiezy, intensywny, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku przyprawowe, delikatnie slodkie i kwaskowe ale w minimalnym wydaniu. Piwo delikatnie wytrawne, orzezwiajace, lekkie, gladkie, swietnie pijalne. Klasyk jednym slowem.

JDBaker11058 (1446) - Maryland, USA - APR 13, 2015
Appearance: cloudy light gold, with a creamy, frothy white head that shrinks to a thick cap. Aroma: doesn’t smell all that great; there’s a pretty typical wit aroma of orange peel, coriander and cracked grains, but it was pretty musty and dusty. Taste: way better than it smelled, with bright citrus, toasty coriander, zesty yeast, cracked wheat, a hint of star anise and cloves. Finish: pleasantly zippy, with a bit of lemongrass coming out; palate is pitch perfect refreshing. Notes: Very nice witbier. The smell was a tad off-putting, but easily forgotten when the palate and flavors came into play. Bottle from Total Wine in Fairfax, Virginia.

Opaque very light gold, strong white head. Green apple yeasty aroma. Light body, cloves, yeast, some citrus zest. Finishes bit dry. Nice!
