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.

Cloudy beige,medium dense froth, smells like a belgian witbier, the typical spicy citrus notes, but on the palate there’s more of the Weißbier banana aroma. It’s not bad, but I prefer the crisp belgian style without the bavarian Weißbier yeasts.

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.

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.

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 (1752) - 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.

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 ]
