2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Not a bad beer, but not particularly tasty either. Pretty average in my opinion. Probably good for hot weather.

Good beer at any time. Easy to drink and tasty, especially with an orange in it. Yummy with wings, pizza, and other finger foods

Bottle@Bistro Niko, Atlanta. Blonde beer with a light head. The aroma is citric and dry, and the flavour is dry with some citrusy and yeastiness. Overall a nice witbier style beer.

Under blue Moon I saw you
So soon you'll take me
Up in your arms
Too late to beg you or cancel it
Though I know it must be the killing time.

Very pleasant. Not too sure about the added orange. Made a particularly delicious après drink.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Vynl, Manhattan, NY. Cloudy orange color, short sustained white head, came with an orange slice on the edge of the glass. Looks almost like a weizen... Aroma of witbier, wheat, spices and orange. Palate feels very astringent and dusty, iper dry. Aroma however is very light. Taste is flat. Short spicy finish. Served very cold, ultra refreshing, not the best thing ever but for sure good for summer.

Hazy yellow pour, quick white head. Nose is yeast and light wheat. Slightly sweet. Middle is muted orange and spice, followed by slick grain. Finish is a bit more dry, not very distinctive.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle 0,355L - gift from Gregor. Murky, ocra colour with small, frothy, white head that dissipate fast. Aroma of coriander, parsley, some other vegetable and spices. Taste is really weird, like drinking beer made of vegetable instead of using malt. Light sweet, weird taste. Hard to drink. Kinda soapy finish. I like Belgian wit beers, but this one is awful.
