This is a decent Belgian style wit that is more useful as an introduction to the general style for a newbie than as a good example of the style. It is mildly enjoyable, with citrus and wheat aromas and a sweet flavor. Hopefully this beer will lead some people to some much more interesting Belgian brews.

Buona birra, gusto leggero ma intenso. Dissetante come una blanche che si rispetti, senza perderci in aroma.

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smells very much like orange. Kind of foamy in the mouth. Tastes like wheat with a clear orange zesty aftertaste (although the final aftertaste is mostly wheat with a slight hint of orange).

RobertDale (4192) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Tall can. Pours a cloudy gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, spice, and grain. Taste is orange, lemon, coriander, and wheat. Nothing wrong with this mild wit.

35.5cl bottle on 14/06/2015 poured into a tall glass. Hazy light amber colour with a thick creamy white head which quickly dissipates. Sweet fruity and wheat aroma. Medium carbonation. Light body and flavour. Sweet; flavours of wheat, grain, citrus fruits (orange peel, lemon) and slightly spicy. Light, fruity and drinkable.

g_georgiou (364) - CYPRUS - JUN 9, 2015
Slightly hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma is coriander, orange, wheat. Taste is medium sweet with light bitterness. Although quite drinkable I wouldn’t say this is a Belgian white ale.

magpieken (122) - - JUN 2, 2015
355ml bottle. 11 May 15. Cloudy, deep gold colour with a creamy white head which reduced to a ring and left no lacing. Aroma of citrus, coriander, honey, wheat and yeast (tick, tick, tick). Light to medium sweetness, light bitterness and a little bit of spiciness. Light to medium body, creamy texture, some zestiness and lingering gentle bitterness in a semi-dry finish. A decent tip of the hat to Belgian Witbiers and very drinkable.
