330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Beige cloudy color forms a medium fizzy bubbled head when poured. Retention is small but a small layer remains forever. Very few lacings are left S: Smell is very mild. Smells mainly wheat and yeasts. A bit sweet and a bit spicy too. Not remarkable but not bad at all too T: Taste is also quite soft. Again, wheat and yeasts. A bit of coriander. Watery and neutral, I mean, not sweet and not bitter too M: Very light body. Medium to low carbonation O: Very drinkable beer. Pleasant too [ BA Review @ 2/4/2012 ]

DSG (6106) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Rotem. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of bread, yeast, banana and a bit of cardboard hints. Sweetish flavor with banana, a bit of bubblegum, yeast and a slightly spicy finish. Rather light-bodied. Not great, but quite refreshing. Feels more like a Hefeweizen than a Belgian Wit.

Pindoc (103) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Der schöne kompackte grossblasige Schaum krönt das dunkelgelbe trübe Bier. Ein satter Weizenduft steigt in die Nase. Der erste Schluck umspühlt den Gaume leich bittersüss. Dies zieht sich, jetzt aber immer leicht bitterer zu werden, weiter die Kehle hinunter. Der Abgang ist demnach auch leicht bitter, aber sehr schmackhaft. Der Nachhall klingt noch eine Weile nach. Ein sehr gutes Weizenbier!

Yeast on the inside of the crown and the neck of the bottle, never seen this before. Head disappears fast, especially for a white. Little bit of a soar smell. Soar and bitter taste but not enough body to balance. Like most other Swiss beer I tasted, I have the impression than the quality of the barley is not what it should be. Is all the organic barley in Swiss from the same origin?

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelgelbe Farbe, ist leicht trüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist hefig, säuerlich, grüner Apfel mit einer dumpfen Note. Der Geschmack ist sehr schlank, samtig sonst wie das Aroma. Bittere gibt es keine.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
Ehm, not really for me. Its all very the farmers kitchen sink type stuff. Feels lime it was plugged with hay and matured in a thick paper bag. Bit of a flowery hop and matls character of sett by a flavour of boiled cabbage? Didn’t like it, but boy, what a pretty label.

Slightly hazy very pale yellow colour. Smells of a wheat beer.Tastes like a wheat beer. Bet it’s a wheat beer. Bit pappy. Bit of pappy lemon rind. But I did buy it in Switzerland so hey, winner.
