Fatehunter (2243) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
One finger of head on a clear, light straw colored body. The aroma is light and airy. Smells like sweet corn and candy. I actually like it though. The taste is mildly sweet with a nice dryness and a touch of fruit. The texture is light and bubbly with moderate carbonation. It packs some great flavor into a lighter beer. I like it.

Pours with a an ample frothy head, pale yellow. Taste has very much citrus and lemon, little bit of honey and spices. Very tasty, enjoyable to drink, nicely balanced.

Hermod (6414) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Draught @ Ųlhus Kųbenhavn. Poured deep golden color with a thick white head. White pepper, coriander, orange peel in aroma. Seldom do I get this much pepper notes in witbiers as in this. Flavor has orange, floral notes, peppery spiciness. Round, smooth palate. Pleasant.

Lemke10 (969) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2016
This pours a hazy yellow color with a small head. Mild orange and coriander aroma. Taste has a nice orange and wheat flavor. Texture is smooth yet fairly thick on the tongue. Well made easy drinking imported craft beer. Like a Blue Moon on steroids.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2016 From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. At dinner, with omelete + cheese + sausages sandwich. Watery lemonade, not what I expect in a wit. Soapy. Nice aspect though

Poured from a bottle at a pizza shop in Iceland. Very smooth, pleasant citrus aroma with hints of coriander. Incredible lacing, satisfying medium body. Balanced just right. Best white ale I have tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
