Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde/blanche, petite mousse très grosse effervescence, une bière avec un goût très froment banane en début de bouche et une fin fleur d’oranger, juste agréable...

I had this at Global Brew. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Taste coriander, orange, crisp. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

agent_persik (395) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 1, 2014
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus and spice. Dry taste has similar notes with light hops in gently bitter finish. Thin body and lively carbonation. Very refreshing beer.

tmoreau (2424) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. as a 12oz. serving, dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, showing a hazed, light orangey gold/straw color, with a frothy layer of white head foam, and wavy spray to the lacing. The nose was light yeast, grass & greenery, ripened fruit, and light lemon & peach. Light bodied, and a little watery textured, light spice as coriander was more noticeable in the taste, along with light carbonation that offered a little spritz to the tongue, and a touch of silkiness to the mouthfeel. Not bad, light & refreshing, but pricey.

0,33L bottle, BB 04.2015. Pours hazy straw with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, wheat, spices, flowers, and perfumy. Flavor is sweet, wheat, spices, citrus, orange, coriander, and soapy. Finish is orange and bitter. Overall: very nice juicy wit.

MunBro (354) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Pale yellow pour with a fizzy white head that left no lacing. Aroma had a big blast of wheat right off the bat with subtle spice notes after. Tastes really light and refreshing, spices, coriander, wheat, etc. Not getting any malt notes which is perfectly fine!

First reaction was, this is interesting. Very fresh, easy drinking. Floral notes, modest soureness.

HuskerTan (497) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. A- Baby powder, coriander, orange, spices. A- Golden orange color, slightly hazy liquid, minimal white head. T- Strong notes of coriander and nutmeg, slight orange, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- Not your usual Belgian Wit. A ton of spices, especially the nutmeg and coriander. I’m not sure how much age was on this bottle, but I don’t think it was too fresh, hence the lack of citrus notes and more of the spices. An odd aroma of baby powder when really wasn’t too bad. Not my favorite Belgian White but a worthwhile beer at the least.

Smells like sour Sapporo. Tastes like oak and vanilla. A little sour. Strange. I'm not sure what style of beer this is trying to be. Unique and weird. Strong nose.
