The beer looks nice. The looks are typical for a witbier. The color is a light orange. The beer is very cloudy, caused by the unfiltered aspect. It has a nice look, almost satin like. Its the appearance a witbier should have. On top of the beer a nice layer of white soft foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses rather quickly, to leave a thin drape behind. The smell of the beer is nice. Itís not wolds best witbier smell though. It could use a bit more complexity. I smell some coriander and sweet orange. There is also a nice zesty bitterness. I also smell alcohol and some doughy yeasts. The balance is nice, although I believe there is missing something. I wished the lovely fruity sweetness was a bit stronger. The taste of the beer is nice. There is a lovely bitter zesty flavor. I also taste coriander, orange, yeasts and alcohol. Its the same as the smell, but a bit stronger. Itís easy drinkable and must be lovely to drink on a terrace in the summer.

Lore (1942) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 22, 2016
hazy golden colour, some off-white head, which disappears quickly; aroma of coriander, bread, floral and fruity notes; taste is quite sweet with fruitiness, hints of honey and coriander as well as bitter orange notes; not among the best witbiers, but refreshing

Raistlin (256) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2016
Pours hazy orange, almost like orange juice texture. It has pretty thick texture, and looks cloudy and heavy. White head dissipates right away. Really low on flavor, barely can taste any hops and bit of orange peel. Pretty bland, and no carbonation to speak of but drinkable.

GrooveDaddy (21) - Bham, Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Both bottles and cans; this is a fairly popular brew down here in Alabama - it has a nice, citrusy tone with a pleasant aftertaste; generally, you canít go wrong with this easy-drinking beer.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
