Idiosynkrasie (5146) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2015
330ml bottle. Cloudy to milky, yellow-ish pale golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Spicy aroma, notes of nutmeg, coriander, orange zest. Taste is minimally soapy spicy, notes of coriander, nutmeg, a touch of orange zest. Definitely overspiced, and if it wasn’t for the nutmeg...

Turboninja (237) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle@home. Medium, fresh bit sweet aroma of wheat and coriander, with hint of sourness. Light yellow color with minimal white head. Hazy liquid. Medium taste with sweet wheat, coriander and some orange in nice balance. Medium/wide taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with wheat. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall refreshing and high quality product that has succeeded with its experimental aspects.

Hikeg (95) - - SEP 3, 2015
Pours flat light yellow with minimal white head. Aroma is light straw, dough, orange, sweat, soap. Flavor is medium malty, light to medium bitter. Body is medium, palate is watery, carbonation is average. Not much character but decent thirst-quencher.

ogivlado (6466) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Cloudy lemon yellow coloured, medium sized creamy white head, acidic fruity nose. Spicy (more nutmeg than coriander), notes of fruits and yeast with sweetish spicy finish. Not bad but to be honest expected better one.

Dermi (826) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2015
33 cl, bottled (BB 08.2016). Pours cloudy slightly palish yellow with a one finger head. Aroma: Pale malt, wheat tones. Tones of fruitiness and spices. Taste: Medium sweet, fruity flavours with some malt. Some mild spiciness, even hints of pepper. Orange tones, a bit dry. I cannot pinpoint the coriander (at least as in fresh one, most often a distinct soapy flavour to me). Palate: Light body, crisp carbonation. Witbier, indeed. Good, nothing special.
