Pours a cloudy pale gold with a minimal head. Some aromas of clove and lemon. Flavours of clove, lemon and digestives. Not as pronounced as a Wit would normally be.

Kavu (3011) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Taste from a bottle @ a friend’s place. Pours clear pale golden with a high head. Aroma is sour malts with some orange zest. A bit like a lambic. Flavor is sour malts, orange zest, some yeast and some hops. Strange wit, but not bad.

Hopmaestro (661) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2015
Aroma is soft spicy with the wheat shining through drenched in citrus like tones. Taste is at first that "hollow" wheat taste, but really soon the bitterness kicks in from the orange peels, which make this one somewhere between "good" and "great". Not that much of coriander in here, which is good in my book.

WillemsUrenkel (975) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2015
0,33 l bottle from Brause Syndikat, BI. Pale golden and a little bit unclear in the glass, small white steady head. Coriander, yeast and a little bit wheat on the nose. Taste starts with some citrus, coriander and malt in the second row. Smooth, little bit thin but refreshing. High carbonated.

Turtles (619) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
330ml bottle from Systembolaget, Hornstull. Stylish label on the bottle. Hazy pale yellow, large white long lasting head. leaving rich lacing. The aroma has spices, plastic and fart. Light and dry mouthfeel, gentle carbonated, light bodied. The taste is a bit simple, lemon, orange, wheat, grassy hops, sweet corn.

Bottle, Kef airport ticking. Loads of coriander and clove and citrus. Juicy and clean. This is pretty intense on the coriander but a good representation of Belgian history. I enjoyed it and don’t get the low rates. Can’t appease them all.

Mora2000 (6050) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2015
On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest. First beer from Iceland. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of wheat plus some light orange and coriander notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty much tastes like I expect Belgian whites to taste like.

Olo13 (7) - POLAND - AUG 14, 2015 does not count
Bardzo jasne i bardzo lekkie piwo. W aromacie lekka kolendra, trochę owocowo jest, taka pomarańcza, trochę drożdżowo. W smaku lekka kolendra, więcej skórki pomarańczowej niż w aromacie i drożdże. Piwo lekkie, goryczki wg mnie prawie brak, pozostawia lekki taki posmak owocowo-belgijski. Bardzo przyjemne piwo wg mnie. Jestem ciekawy tylko na ile wpływ na tą lekkość ma woda, bo się na etykiecie chwalą, że ta lekkość piwa właśnie jest trochę od Islandzkiej wody.

Enjoyed this in Iceland. Hazy body big had. Nose is fruity, sweet. Taste more subdued. But was nice to pound nonetheless.

chrisko82 (283) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 13, 2015
Piwo słomkowe. Niemal klarowne, opalizujące. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa szybko opada. Nie lepi szkła. Wysycenie wysokie. Słodkie, w tle ziołowe, goździki, cytrusy. W smaku słodkie z cytrynową kwaskową kontrą. Rześkie, Bardzo fajne na lato. Udany white ale.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3346) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2015
Light cloudy gold with a pils/lemon meringue pie aroma. Interesting. Raspy carbonation and light bodied. Refreshing lemon pie flavor and mild spiciness. An interesting take on a wheat ale. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
