Bottle. Poured a cloudy bright yellow with a tasty-looking medium head. Beautiful aromas of orange peel and coriander, with a tough of nutmeg just as advertised. Super elegant body- refined and balanced, yet quite juicy and refreshing. These guys really know their stuff. Classy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Typical for its style, Hitachino Nest White Ale pours pale, hazy yellow with a frothy white head of medium-long retention. The bouquet is rather simple but ripe with orange peel and coriander notes, whereas faint notes of cloves, banana and nutmeg appear only after taking a mouthful. An even fainter note of cinnamon is also perceivable. The flavor profile straightforwardly matches the nose. With the bitterness being this faint, the finish consists mainly of wheaty-yeasty acidity. As expected, the body is very light and features fine and smooth carbonation. A very pleasant beverage when served chilled on a hot summer day.

Kita (1596) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 10, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Saska. Pours hazy golden color with thin totally diminishing white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, wheat, herbs, coriander and flowers. Taste starts light sweet grainy, following is citric and herbal, mouthfeel is mild spicy, crisp and rather dry, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Fresh and gentle thirst killer...

Saw this in the store a bunch of times, but never pulled the trigger. 11.2oz bottle from a mixed six gifted by my sis-in-law. Thanks, Erin! Pours pale yellow gold with an off white head. Aroma is wheat, orange, mild pepper. Flavor is lemon, wheat, orange peel. A bit of pepper and a slight sourness in the finish.

Aromat: po otwarciu atakuje niestety siarka. Dopiero po chwili zanika i pojawiają się cytrusy oraz trochę kolendry. Jest on jednak bardzo słaby i po chwili zanika, pozostawiając jedynie kwaskowość i trochę pszenicy. Słabiutko.

Wygląd: barwa słomkowa, wyraźnie zamglona. Piana białą, średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, niewielka i szybko zanikająca. Po chwili pozostaje jedynie niewielka obwódka przy brzegach szklanki. Znowu słabo.

Smak: na pierwszym planie niestety szczypiące w język wysycenie, które zapycha. Lekka słodycz, lekka kwaskowość, nuta alkoholowa, nieco przypraw i pszenicy. Nuda i wszystko to jakieś przytłumione. Widać, że piwo nie jest świeże, choć według daty przydatności powinno być zdatne do spożycia minimum do sierpnia 2016. Goryczki praktycznie brak. Pełnia niewielka, ale uczucie pełności wzmaga się z powodu wysycenia. Trudno jest wypić nawet butelkę 033 l. Jeden ze słabszych witów , jakie próbowałem.

Dorata pallida, opalescente, schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aroma di coriandolo, frumento, scorza e succo d'arancia, leggerissima noce moscata. Al palato frumento, sempre scorza e succo di arancia, noce moscata e coriandolo più presenti che al naso, coda amaricante erbacea data dai luppoli utilizzati, generalmente non presenti in una witbier classica. Corpo leggero, non molto carbonata, acquosa.
