gegwilson (1773) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle from a Geneva Coop. Pours a pretty murky amber colour with a good white frothy head. Spice and citrus aroma. Same in the taste. Quite lemony, verging on washing up liquid notes. Still quite light and refreshing. OK.

Bottled 330ml. -from Coop (near) Verbier, Switzerland. Hazy yellow/golden coloured, medium sized white head, mild wheaty nose whit whiff of coriander. Moderate malty, wheaty, light spicy and orange with notes of coriander and citrus. Some yeast in the finish.

PaulW (105) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
An unremarkable beer of this style. There are hints of other similar wit beer types here. A whisper of cloves and bananas, a crisp dry finish but nothing lingers. All too light bodied for me and there are better beers like this, which accentuate all the good bits of this style.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Blonde pâle, opaque. Mousse peu persistante, qqs dépôts. Au nez sucrée, blé et levures dominant l’aromatique. Bien dans son style, mais peu complexe ou caractérisée. En bouche similaire, avec en plus une petite acidité. Peu complexe, peu de longueur. Petite carbonatation. Bien buvable, mais c’est tout.

Kita (1336) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of Yoo. Clear deep golden color with small creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of wheat, lemon and yeast. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy malt, quickly dominated by citric, wheaty and yeasty acidity, spicy mouthfeel ad moderate grassy bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Good, but a bit too sour...

Drank as a draught. Quite nice and fresh. The taste is fruity and the look is cloudy.

eduardovl (1021) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
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 (7623) - Tel Aviv, - 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 (120) - 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!
