Very citrusy and very smooth. Aroma has a distinct fruity, tangerine almost smell to it. Taste is unlike many beers i’ve tasted probably due to the distinct citrus flavor. The aftertaste, however, is one of the best i’ve ever experienced as it is very subtle yet hangs around for a while. I drank this out of the bottle poured into a pint glass.

Rhombic (62) - SPAIN - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. Pours cloudy yellow, not too much head and mostly diminishing. Some banana in the aroma, sweet hay, mostly unremarkable. Flavour develops the hints of banana much better, crisp, wheat, citrus quite present too. Very refreshing feel. Texture is somewhat watery, finish is somewhat sour and of average duration, body is medium. OK witbier.

Bottle 330 ml. Little dull in taste and watery body, but overall pretty allright for a witbier.

Beer from bottle in local pub. No glass. I was hoping this would be comparable to Hoegaarden (which I had been told it was) and I was sooo wrong. OK beer, but the flavour mix with orange and coriander just doesn’t work as well. Can’t tell you why - just doesn’t. I have been back to pub many times and just can’t take the plunge to order this again (about $9 a bottle here). I actually order a local macro beer on tap - enough said.

chinchill (3355) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2015
On tap served in a pint glass. Appearance: hazy amber with a very durable white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma: average or better for style. This arrived with an orange clice on the glass, so the citrus coponent may be artificially raised Flavor: mild and tame even for style. Refreshing and lightly fruity. O: easy drinking with no significant flaws excepting mediocre aroma and the quantity of flavor.

hrabren (395) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 17, 2015
0.33 l bottle at Europa Cinema, Zagreb, Croatia. Pours cloudy orange to dark golden with a small off white head. Grain aroma along with some citrus, fruit candy, orange. Sweet, but empty. Aroma is present but seems fake. Medium carbonation, light to medium body. Some banana in the finish, fruits again. Fades quickly.

Bottle 0.33l form Konzum supermarket in Pula, Cro. Cloudy dark yellow color, small head. Very carbonated, medium body. Nice flowery aroma. Taste is ok, unbalanced sweetness and too carbonated. Could taste something like vodka in it. Vodka and cheapness in aftertaste.

Spab (2945) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
On tap at the Air Canada Centre (as Belgian Moon). Pours a cloudy dull golden colour with large white head. Aroma is artificial, sweet fruitiness, light spiciness and a bit of wheat. Flavour ditto with lots of sweet, artificial fruit character. Fizzy carbonation. Meh.
