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.

Ritzn (373) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
Hazy yellow with little white head. Aroma is lots of herbs, coriander, some orange peel. Taste is some hoppy bitterness with lots of dry herbs and only a little sourness. Finish is rather long, like after a herbs candy. Rather bubbly mouthfeel. Very intersting.

Maakun (3566) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy light yellow with short lasting fizzy white head. Lemon, some nutmeg, coriander, olive oil, flowers, quite some wheat too. Loads of spices with some dusty wheat and citrus basically. Medium bitter and sweet. Medium bodied with a bit watery feel. Like a bad gin and tonic, way too much nutmeg too. Not my thing.
