Swiss wit, yeah why not. Fine balance between acid, yeast, coriander and orange peel, resulting in a refreshing brew.

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!

Brought back from my wife while in Geneva, Switzerland... Best before 7/3/06 Appears a hazy, light gold with a small white cap that quickly fizzles out into a tiny collar. Tiny spots of lace seem to slide back into the collar. Smell is of mild citrus, crisp wheat, black pepper, cream, dough, light coriander, and clove. Taste is of the same aromas with a doughy yeast. Mouthfeel is light bodied, smooth, lightly carbonated, semi-sweet of candy, and mildly dry. Drinkability is refreshing with citrus and light doughy yeast smacking around.

Nice bitter edge to this one. Not as good as the Calvinus Noire, about level with the Ambree. Middling in terms of body and carbonation. Yeasty aroma, nice hazy golden appearance. I like it.

Esta cerveza que encontramos en un supermercado de Ginebra mientras visitábamos a nuestro amigo el Guerra ha resultado ser una de las witbier más correctas que hemos tomado. Sigue las enseñanzas del maestro Celis dentro del estilo. Se percibe un olor a levadura agradable, las notas de plátano muy marcadas. Es más dulce que ácida , de sabor suave, sútil y agradable. Es una pena que aquí no se encuentre porque nos pareció una buena witbier

On pour a dark yellow colour shows with a very nice creamy frothy head, all of which looks pretty good. The head is damn good, very bubbly, but it does die a little after, with not much lacing. Beer turns to a murky cloudy colour after a while when it settles The smell is strong, a lot of sweet smells, mainly wheat and yeast, and some citrus. A very strong taste, full of sweet grains at the start. This is a very tasty beer, full of taste. A taste of cream, wheat and yeast, with each mouthful nice and smooth, and very light. Even if it was very sweet you do get used to it, and this beer is a bit of a slow burner. In the end I did enjoy drinking a couple of these beers. Wide tasting and pretty refreshing. Not bad.

Bottle, purchased in Geneva. Pours hazy, light golden color with a small white head. Yeasty, sour-sweet aroma with light wheaty-malty notes, coriander and citrus as well. Sweet and tart flavor, lemon and lime, sourdough bread, pepper and spice with a lingering biscuity finish. Medium body, unfiltered and smooth with gentle carbonation.
