This was in a bottle aboard the Carnvial Liberty. It pours a hazy yellow. It has orange with other hops and citrus in the aroma. The taste was okay, with hints of orange and other citrus.

Marcius (204) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Appearance with golden / amber color, cloudy liquid and medium head. Smooth citrus aroma, with wheat and oats. Citric flavor with honey and oats and little bitterness. A good witbier, I really liked it!

Moebbels (308) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a hazy light yellow body with almos no head to speak of. Nose has aromas of citrus fruits, spicy black pepper, yeast and hay. Taste is mild with smooth peppery flavors and a mildly dry, smooth finish. Carbonation is fairly lively and the mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Overall a decent drink although a little bland.

Barwa: złocista, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa,umiarkowanej wielkości, dość szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: cytrusy, kolendra, początkowo nieco anyżu i lekka kwaskowość. Smak: względnie lekki, umiarkowanie słodki, pomarańczowy. nieco cierpki z niewielka goryczką. Początkowo orzeźwiający, ale po chwili trochę męczący. Kolejne piwo zakupione podczas niedawnego festiwalu w Żywcu. Jednocześnie jest to pozycja "książkowa" z wielokrotnie przytaczanej pozycji 1001 piw , które warto spróbować. Piwo praktycznie niedostępne w Polsce, z którym wiązałem większe nadzieje. Ostatecznie na tym się skończyło, bowiem mam wrażenie, że nie jest ono pierwszej świeżości.

Hazy yellow pour with a 2 finger head. Very light banana aroma. Taste is a light touch of spice up front (coriander?) with some lemon and grassy flavor afterwards. Thin mouth feel. Overall this is a decent bridge between light lagers and the craft ales this is supposed to mimic.

scoth (493) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours cloudy orange-yellow with a rapidly diminishing beige head, fine lacing. Aromas of caramel, coriander, dough, orange, and grass. Light body, velvety smooth. Mildly sweet, slightly tart, low bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and sessionable but not particularly interesting.
