boydmarq (52) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma is faint banana and clove. Taste is woody with a mildly sour aftertaste. Everything about this beer is subtle. Very drinkable, but not one I would knock myself out to try and find again.

King_Alex_II (624) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Orange-yellow color with fast decaying foam. Light yeasty smell. The taste is partially fresh and a little spicy, but also yeasty and with hints of cookie. Present bitterness and a lively carbonation. Smooth and calm aftertaste with still some cookie flavor.

Nonshaugen (40) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2015
Didn’t quite know what to expect from a beer mixed with orange juice. Not much aroma, but tasting it was a pleasant surprise. Very interesting mix of orange juice / zest and spices, well carbonated and refreshingly fruity, almost citrusy dry mouthfeel. You can easily have more than one of these at hot summer days. Recommended.

330ml Drunk from a Meantime tulip-pint . Ok the coolest fucking bottle in history .!!! Just look at the Japanese writing mixed with some owl that resembles a hallucination . This is actually a rerate and I got through one bottle in 3 mins and 17 seconds . Yes , this beer does what Witbiers should , it refreshes and goes down faster than a Japanese hooker on the wrong side of tokyo . Second bottle The nose suggested here ....brings fourth accents of coriander , rich orange zest that screams with zest , wheaty breakfast ceral ....Pours with a large foamy white head that dies too soon above banana murky colour . Spicy palate. Tart orage zest is bitter and refreshing . Dry finish almost cleans the fatty Salmon I ate before on my palate . A relaxing take on the style .

Ganz tolles Witbier aus Japan. Erfrischend, leicht, aber dennoch reich im Geschmack. Typische Wit Aromen von Orange und Koriander. Dazu etwas ungewöhnliches, interessantes, dies müsste die Muskatnuss sein. Sehr gut trinkbar und gerade für heiße Sommertage perfekt geeignet.

330ml bottle from Waitrose. Cloudy pale yellow with thin bubbles. Aroma of orange blossom with a slight sea salt tang. Flavour very light with sweet orange and very subtle cinnamon spice.

Bonster (181) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Honey color and hazy pour, little to no head. Smells like my Grandma’s attic and that’s the only reason I was generous with my Aroma rating, because my Grandma was awesome. Citronella candle taste (not that I’ve tasted those....), drain pour.
