Pours to a deeply hazy yellowish straw colored body with a thin starch white head. Aroma of coriander and orange juice with straw and wit yeast. The flavor is wheaty with light orange and subtle coriander. The yeast is light too. Medium light body that is refreshing and nicely textured. Nice carbonation pop.

jinroh (268) - ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2014
330 ml bottle from Seijo Ishii. Pours white-pale, almost like apple juice with a small white top that is gone fast. Aroma is quite zesty, has also some coriander and fruits. Leaves quite spicy impression. First sip reveals some palate-cleansing thin carbonation that mixes well with the orange-peel and quite cold temperature I am drinking this beer at. There is some sweeter malt body with fruity yeast notes - but sweet citrus is a ruler. I understand there is also some orange juice inside, it is even possible to understand it from the taste. Taste itself is not long, after this snappy refreshing first bite, there is only some faint sweetness and fruitiness left in my mouth - and the aftertaste is perhaps a bit watery. A good beer.

Hazy amber with no head. Aroma is sweet and a little spicy. Flavour is sweet with a little citrus and spice. Canít detect the coriander but getting the nutmeg. Interesting, but certainly lacking a bit of bite.

Il gufo nipponico non conosce solo le rigide regole del bushido dei volatili, ma Ť in grado di imitare perfettamente il verso di una vera blanche come si deve. Morbida, dolce al punto giusto, con ampie note floreali e sentori soffusi di buccia díarancia. Trovata in un centro commerciale di Osaka, Ť stata una grande inattesa sorpresa!

From my backlog. Shared with andregoncalves. Hazy golden colour with a white head and medium lasting. Aroma has herbal notes, slightly yeast abd light maltiness. Flavor is light, with herbal notes, maybe tea traces, very light maltiness and slightly sweet in the final.

minutemat (890) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
330ml bottle from Glug, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. A strange wit with what tastes like aniseed, nutmeg and cardamon coming through amongst the usual light wit flavours. Not sure Iím diggin this to be honest.

330ml bottle, Yamamori Dublin. Hazy pale gold, brilliant white head, lasting. Belgian yeast nose. Sweet up front, dry toward the finish. Light body, fizzy. Short flowery finish. Nice.
