Not much for aroma, nothing really impressive from this beer but overall not too bad. Would drink again.

tfredvik (1355) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
Cloudy, quite pale yellow body with a rather large, white, long-lived head that laces the glass well. Sweet and strong aroma of oranges, lots of oranges, Belgian yeast, and spices. The oranges are also very obvious in the strong flavour. In addition I get spices, Belgian yeast and hints of perfume and soap. Mid-bodied, dry and lively carbonated. Feels a bit sweeter than many wits of lower ABV, vague traces of acidity but hardly any bitterness. A nice one!

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order ( bu). Slightly hazy golden color- plenty of foam and high carbonation. Medium/ high aroma intensity; fruity, banana , citrus and nice yeast influence. Medium/ full body & complexity. Some immediate sweetness, well balanced with high bitterness. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste is a little triple like with caramel and honey notes, leading to wheat, marzipan, almonds,spice, corriander, orange notes, lots of banana and bubblegum, peppery in a dry lemony finish. Mouthfeel is good A very nice wit, which manages to be sweet in body and quite dry in finish.

rdb84 (300) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Bottled november 2013. Yellow pour with orange hue, soapy foam head. Aroma: there is a difference between the foam aromas, and the aroma from the beer. The latter is: typical Glazen Toren yeast, hint of white wine, faint notes of (exotic) fruit, some dried apricots. The former (foam): citrus / lemon zest, vinegar, quite astringent (hint of chlorine even). Very interesting. Taste resembles white wine. Some fresh grain notes, lemon, but this is definitely more like wine than beer (in taste). Development is quite bitter, sour, with a touch of Saison. Aftertaste is a bit dry, walnuts, hint of white wine.
