This beer clearly has its fans -- just take a look at some of the reviews here -- but I don't get it. Pours a dark golden yellow which isn't unappealing by itself, but doesn't seem to suit the style (which is presumably a Belgian Wit, which is presumably lighter.) The head vanishes very quickly. Nose of cooked grain, a little citrus, a little corn/fritos, maybe a touch of spice but that's stretching it -- really not much more than say a Yuengling with some lemon juice in it. Mouthfeel is odd, rather thick and gummy to my taste. Not much by way of flavor, does have a sharp finish that isn't unpleasant but I can't taste much of anything in the beer itself, certainly nothing I'd normally associate with a Belgian White. Best described as a Belgian Wit made by a company that never actually tried one -- just read a little bit about them in other books. Like if the Cold War was going on and Romania tried to brew one, based soley on reputation and what they could discover in libraries. It's kiinndda in the style, but it's a really bad stab at it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Een poging om Hoegaarden na te maken. Degelijk niet gelukt, fletse smaak en niet te drinken.

Cloudy yellow big white head and loads of carbon dioxide. Very wheat like and some orange peel. Very watery and some metallic edge to it. Cheap.

Alaranjada com pouca formação de espuma. Notas cítricas de laranja com pouco coentro. Corpo super leve, muito refrescante e quase nenhum amargor

gorkogrlo (236) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 30, 2015
Bottle. Small-medium white head. Hazy. Aroma of wheat, yeast, some coriander and spices. In taste wheat and spiciness. Missing citrus and coriander character. Some kind of sour finish. Lightly body. Overall: wheat beer without wit character (citrus fruits and coriander). Really boring wit.

andriesradu (605) - ROMANIA - SEP 28, 2015
Pours hazy dark yellow with a moderate, fast diminishing white head. Wheat, dusty aroma with notes of coriander and lemon. Flavor is sweet, quite dry with notes of wheat, coriander, soap (probably from the coriander). Decent.

veceo (910) - CROATIA - SEP 26, 2015
Hazy light orange color, average sized white head. Malty and spicy aroma. Taste of malt, coriander and orange juice. Light to medium body, very high carbonation. Overcarbonated but drinkable.

La mousse disparaît subitement. Le liquide est blond voilé, pas très beau. Un nez de soufre et de pelures d’orange avec des élans vinaigrés et acidulés. C’est mieux au fil des gorgées . On goûte le blé et les agrumes et par moment c’est poivré. Même si ça ressemble à un brassin amateur, c’est buvable. Merci à mon frère. (1584-140915)

ogivlado (6467) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2015
Bottled 355ml. -at Pivana Zagreb. Hazy orange coloured, small white head, coriander in the nose. Quite wheaty, sweetish fruity, light yeasty and plenty of coriander with touch of vegetables (celery for sure) and mild spicy finish. Not bad but a bit messy brew.
