3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from 3-14-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a hazy orange-yellow colored brew with a tiny white head that fades very rapidly. Upon fading almost no lace is left on the sides of the glass
Smell – The nose is quite sweet and citrus with heavy aromas of orange and lemon. Mixed with these smells are aromas of wheat bread as well as some aromas of some spice of coriander and nutmeg.
Taste – The taste begins with a good dose of wheat and a more lemon citrus taste that gives is a sour sweet flavor upfront. As the taste advances some flavors of orange sweeten it up some with other spice flavors of a coriander flavor as well as some yeast flavors coming to the tongue. While these sweeten the flavor, it is only temporary as soon more bitter/sour comes to the tongue in the form of lemon and some grapefruit hop flavors. These take the taste to the end where they are joined by a bit more spice of both nutmeg and coriander, leaving a sweet and sour citrus flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average to actually slightly chewier side for the lower abv and the style with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly above average side. The slightly chewiness takes away from the easy drinking character of the brew in some ways, but actually is not too bad for the wheaty and citrus flavors of the brew. With the higher carbonation making up for the chewier body (in terms of taking away its crispness), it is surprisingly a good combination for the tastes of the brew.
Overall – A fairly decent wit. A little more bitter and sour then most, which I actually like, and with the slightly chewier body it makes for a quite nice drink.

Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Semiclear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of coriander, pear, banana. Taste is wheaty with grass, missing the good yeasty notes of a wit as they are very subtle, some light spicyness. Clean grassy aftertaste with malt notes.

I asked for the most strange beer they got; the bartender gave me this. Below average beer, I can't rate this one without prejudice !

355ml bottle, many thanks to OleR. Pours a pearl white head to a hazy golden body. Spiced fruity aroma. Perfumed taste of coriander, wheat and citrus, rather sweet. Mid-dry fruity endnotes. Medium to thin bodied. Soft in the mouth. So and so (hotel room, Oslo 21.06.2014)
