COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
El alto contenido de trigo en combinación con cepas de levadura especiales da a esta cerveza una turbidez pálida con un distintivo carácter lechoso, casi blanco (wit). Esta cerveza es muy refrescante y ligera con un sutil aroma a cítricos y pan de trigo, mientras que el coriandro le imparte un delicioso aroma floral. Quizá el lugar ideal para degustar esta cerveza es un atardecer junto a un canal en Brujas, mientras se disfruta de unos mejillones Belgas. Esta cerveza la hacemos todo el año y consideramos que una witbier presenta un poco más de acidez que otras cervezas por lo cual es una buena elección para platillos ligeros de mariscos, pescados y ceviches, y es genial para sushi y maki.

Bottle: Friend brought it back from Mexico to El Salvador. Good to see craft beers being produced south of the border and offer more variety. Taste is light, with notes of orange and hints of coriander over a malt base. Is a bit off-style, food pairing: anything this beer won’t compete.

HuskerTan (982) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle. A- Banana, spices, slight funk, wheat. A- Yellow color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Funky, barnyard, banana, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, funky finish. O- I love my wits and being on vacation and finally seeing something other than pale lagers I got really excited. And then I got really depressed after tasting this. It was awful. Very unbalanced and weird flavors. The first time I’ve actually almost puked after drinking a beer.

Oakes (13599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Hazy light tan. Lots of yeast, light fruity, wheaty character, light body and maybe too much tartness. A bit muddled.

Percy0103 (297) - MEXICO - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A golden opaque beer with a foamy head and a lot of sediments floating around. It has a fruty aroma, most noticeable banana, that goes somewhat sour. Taste is also sour and watery. Not much going on.

omhper (21414) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2013
Bottled at Elvira, Mexico City. Cloudy pale golden, small head. Plenty of coriander and some citrus in the nose. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity with some boiled vegetables, lime juice and lots of coriander. Low bitterness. The boiled vegetable flavour is sadly reminiscent of poor industrial lagers, and pretty much ruins the experience.

sseb69 (1664) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
Bouteilel 500 ml. 4.8% Couleur jaune or voilée. Arpome d’agrume. En bouche, agrumes et levure mais assez faible comme blanche...donc pour moi, pas un amateur de blanche, elle passe bien

dresden (1172) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
I don’t really have any notes for this either, just the numbers. It’s a pretty standard but weak witbier. Very cloudy. Yeast, citrus and coriander aroma. Dry beer with some spice and citrus. Not bad, but not overly inspiring either.

Sdaniel90 (538) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 21, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2014 Bottle, 355ml. Pours a hazy light golden colour with a frothy offwhite head that fades away quickly. Musky, sour aroma: basement aromas, grapes, pepper, honey and sour apples. Watery and sour, without much character to be honest, but still some citrus feel. Poor to average.

Bottled. Pale yellow coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Aroma of sweetness, yeast and fruits. Flavour of yeast, spice and fruits. Thin bodied. Dry yeasty end.
