The_Osprey (2580) - Richmond, Greater London, - MAR 24, 2013
Cold bottle. Very pale - like a white wine. Smells like bubblegum, lemon, medicinal. Taste is very watery with a bit of citrus, fair amount of carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste like a lager. Very refreshing - would be nice in the height of summer. Nothing exciting though.

Bamsen78 (3753) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy pale straw with airy white head. Faint aroma of malt, hops and juniper, with notes of fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweetish, fruity notes and pronounced touches of juniper and coriander and orange peel. Slightly acetic aftertaste with mildly bitter notes. Not bad.

MiP (13995) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle, 5.2%. Distinct coriander and clove aroma, nicely citric. Hazy pale yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is mildly lemony with a bit of teaish coriander. Isotonic mouthfeel, quite mineraly and good.

Vestergaard (634) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to my mom! Pours a cloudy, very light yellow. Head is big, frothy ans short lasting. Aroma is very light, but the coriander and citrus peel comes through. Wheat, slight malt, hint of hops and a bit of soap. Taste is very light as well. Slight grape fruit peely bitterness, some spices and a hint of wheat malty sweetness. Not too bad, although pretty weak in general. Medium high carb and again light body.

PapaVillum (576) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2015
330 ml, flaske, 5.2 % ABV, BB 11/06/15, købt i Kokkens Vinhus på Peter Bangsvej på Frederiksberg, 25. marts 2015. Flot gul og ufiltreret islandsk witbier med stor hvid skumtop på ungefär 4 cm, som svinder til gardiner og 1 cm’s penge efter en halv snes minutter. Let syrlig aroma af appelsin og mild aroma af hvedemalt. Næsten intet andet. Meget lækker mild og elegant smag, men med klar karakter. Opleves, som om aromaen og de tilsatte elementer folder sig ud i smagen, hvor der mere klart fornemmes appelsin og lette krydderi-noter af koriander. Smagen er let bitter med lettere og fin sødme. Kroppen er let til middel fyldig med en fin perlende karbonering, som nok er på et medium niveau, men føles en sjat finere. Konsistensen er let olieret, og eftersmagen fin og let bitter. Kort til medium af længde. Dejlig frisk øl, som bør prøves af på altanen til sommer. Samt et elegant etiket-design, der hiver øllet og præsentationen af denne op på et æstetisk niveau og er mindst et procentpoint værd i udseende.

Opaque light gold, medium white head. Hay, coriander and some citrus on nose. Medium body, bit dry, sweet and a bit sour. Finishes dry and yeasty. Decent wit.

I split an 11.2oz bottle with two friends. We each poured it into sampler glasses. It was bottled on 4/2/14 and was sent to me by a friend in Florida (thanks, Mike!).

Appearance: Slightly bright, banana-yellow hue. Quite clear with plenty of visible carbonation. Pours to a standard, white, foamy head which laces and retains well.

Smell: Lightly sweet lemony scent; some spices. Clean overall.

Taste: Most witbiers tend to have a strong orange flavor to them due to the use of orangepeel in the brew, though in this case it’s more of a lemon flavor. Much more of lemon pith or peel than fruit, though. A fairly sweet beer overall with a lovely spice character akin to licorice root (though probably just the coriander). Not nearly as robust or complex as some of the better examples of the style; this is a little closer to an American summer ale. Regardless, it works pretty well.

Drinkability: The mouthfeel is thin and crisp, though the beer is very refreshing while in the mouth. It finishes clean and dry. At 5.2% ABV it probably should have a little more body as it feels like a more overt session beer, though I can let it slide due to the bottle’s age. I could see this being fantastic in the summer.
