lokis333 (374) - Bir˛ai, LITHUANIA - AUG 24, 2016
Cloudy champagne yellow color with small white foam. Aromas of fruits, slight hints of cider followed by notes of citrus, lemonade and light hops (strange but interesting?) Palate, medium body with thicker texture that turns lighter as it goes down leaving champagne-y finish. Taste is slwwet and light of sparkling wine/cider with notes of orange and citrus. Overall, definatly interesting, even thoguh heavier body and texture still rather easy flowing, just rather simple in taste but not usual either.

Bottle shared (shameful country tick). Refreshing but heading in orange radler territory, viking’s bluemoon :)

Aus der Flasche getrunken (aus einer Händlerlieferung). Sehr dünn im Geschmack und der gesamten Erscheinung. Zuviel Gletscherwasser drin?

nimbleprop (7354) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 11, 2016
12oz goblet at Olstofa pours a hazy gold with some soft, sticky white head. Nose is lightly estery, mild banana and bubblegum, some straw, lemon, curacao orange. Flavor is sweet with orange and light chewed bubblegum, wheat chaff, some straw, a little lemon, mild coriander seed. Finishes dry. Not bad for the style.

Pours hazy faint yellow with minimal head. Aroma is coriander, light lemon zest. Light bitter, high carbonation. Somewhat refreshing, but far from stellar.

Finhead (1602) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Hazy yellow pour with a thin white head and good lacing. The aroma has some spice and mild citrus. It has a light body with slightly watery texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a tingly, quick finish.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 3, 2016
On draft at the Goat. Pours the usual color with a normal head, subsides a bit on the quick side for a Wit. Aroma more of spices, coriander especially, then some citrus. Flavor with spices at the front then the wheaty and orangey flavors, touch of herbal and lemony flavors in the finish. Thin on body and moderate on carbonation. Refreshing summer brew, but not a star of the White Ale class. Decent.

Alberello (17) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2016
Strong aromas of coriander and orange, generally citrus and herbs. Pleasant mouthfeel, rather light. Very smooth taste, easy to drink, refreshing. Very interesting!
