Grumlig, aprikosfärgad, litet skum. Doftar svagt av honung. Smaken fyllig maltsötma. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång och söt. Långtifrån belgare, men OK.

KeefOz (1401) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2016
BB 10.09.16. Poured a clouded yellow straw colour with a white collar that didn’t lace. Carbonation high with medium sized bubbles that gave a soft mouthfeel. Aroma subtly of coriander/spice along with sweet citrus. Taste of sweet orange with very subtle spice/cloves and a slight bitterness. Light body. Soft with an orange sweetness and light bitterness on the finish. Not up to the standards of a Belgian wheat beer. Disappointed as was expecting better.

It pours cloudy copper with golden highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: banana, orange zest, and pepper. The taste is light bitter; the aforementioned aroma notes carry through. The palate is medium light bodied with medium carbonation and a medium short finish. Overall, it’s a great when there’s nothing else on tap.

brewtalita (174) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 17, 2016
Light amber, hazy, fizzy with lots of bubbles, pillowy foam. Aroma honey, soap, orange peel. Mouthfeel medium, high carbonation. Taste sourish, some citrus fruit and cloves with coriander in finish. Finish dry, something unpleasant creeps in there - basement aromas and musk. Not overly keen of this one although I anticipated worse

Hidden_Pooch (488) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Pours a hazy gold with very fast dissipating head. Aroma is of coors lights almost with some slight citrus and spice added, and a little musty. Taste almost the same, a macro lager with a squeeze of orange juice. Has a medium light body with high carbonation, making it slightly refreshing. I would drink this at a bbq, but would never buy it myself.

Lubiere (12284) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
A hazed golden wit with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light corn adjunct notes, faint bananas, faint cloves, so-so. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light banana, light cloves, light mineral notes, memory of a wit. Bottle at United Lounge ORD.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured slightly hazy, golden, with a nice white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of yeast and spices, and some malts. Taste is some spices (coriander and orange peel), some malts, slightly hoppy. Honestly not bad, easy to drink.

Tap to pint. Pours clouded yellow-orange, white head. Aroma of orange gummy candy and coriander. Taste of orange peel, spice and wheat mash. Standard American style wit.
