Pours an orange color with white head. Smells of citrus and malt. Flavor is a mix of bitter and sweet and a crisp finish. Overall a very drinkable beer but poor for the style

Cloudy, bit homebrew style, yeasty, fairly strong alc %, something different, the flavour to me is like drinking a lager that you have spiked with a liquer or spiced Scandinavian white spirit... not that I have done that. often.

Bottle. Hazy gold. Aroma and taste are wheat, citrus, floral and biscuit. Medium mouthfeel and light carb. Definitely on the good end of the spectrum for a macro.

Wonderful taste, hint of orange. Pours foggy yellow and goes down smooth. A definite buy

Bought a bottle from a supermarket in Sofia. Hazy golden colour with minimal head and medium to low carbonation. Lightly sour and sweet - you can certainly feel the orange, and the coriander gives it a bit of an exotic taste. Medium body with slick texture.

It is what they say, a good looking beer with good smell and good taste if you like that kind of beer.

TET (1573) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
A dark yellow beer with a medium and blond head. The nose has wheat, spices, coriander, some lemon and sweetness. Taste has spices, wheat, some sweetness but would be better without that, hint of lemon and orange peel. Almost medium bodied, medium carbonation. Not so refreshning as the most of witbiers, also some spices would be nice. Anyway, no faults there.
