Pours a beautiful golden-straw with a creamy off white head. Complex aroma of lemon, grass, spice, ginger, and a huge floral bouquet. Taste does not disappoint! Begins sweet with lightly toasted malts that mix with orange and lemon. The finish is dry and spicy. Very smooth on the palate and I definitely want to keep drinking more. Maybe the best Wit I’ve ever had and it comes from Japan.

budedou (760) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUN 27, 2016
Cloudy yellow color, minimal white head. Spicy aroma, herbs and parsley. Taste is spicy as hell, pepper, mint, which i didn’t like. Could be better.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2016 Hapokas, jopa etikkainen olut. Lonkero tulee mieleen, ja lambic. Kyllä tätä voisi pullon ostaa.

Fullpintofbeer (114) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle from Brew Bristol. Medium head which disappears quickly, yellow colour, hazy. Aroma: bananas mixed with citrus and herbs and grass. Taste: sour mixed with sweet. What a strange taste, but good. Palate: medium to full, lively. Very interesting beer.

LazyPyro (439) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale cloudy orange/yellow colour with a one finger white head, dissipating fairly quickly. Aroma of loads of orange peel, coriander, nutmeg, wheat, yeast. Taste matches the aroma, lots of orange flavour, coriander, spiciness from the nutmeg, wheat. Some citrus bitterness and sourness from the orange. Medium-heavy carbonation. An ok wit, not as good as Belgian ones.

Echon (310) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2016
Pale yellow and medium-bodied. Very light aroma and flavour, with fruity and spicy notes. Mild and dry taste, with little bitterness. Overall, not my favourite type of beer, and the belgians do it better.

tomer (2788) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 11, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Bottle, smallish creamy head, light cloudy lightish orange color, aroma and flavor of citrus, mainly lemony, and some spice notes, medium citrus bitterness, prickly carbonation. Nice and enjoyable.

rdixon77 (2153) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Average wit. Maybe a little more dusty tasting and creamier body. But other than that what you'd expect - orange peel and coriander.

undercurrent25 (1840) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a quickly dissapating head. Taste is very bland, possibly one of the worst wit biers I’ve had

330ml bottle from M&S. Thin white head, nice little lacing. Hazy golden body. Nose is wheat, bread, a little spice. Flavour is bready yeast, oats, spiced orange. Creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Good but seems to be missing something.
