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.

ogivlado (6428) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Cloudy lemon yellow coloured, medium sized creamy white head, acidic fruity nose. Spicy (more nutmeg than coriander), notes of fruits and yeast with sweetish spicy finish. Not bad but to be honest expected better one.

Dermi (788) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2015
33 cl, bottled (BB 08.2016). Pours cloudy slightly palish yellow with a one finger head. Aroma: Pale malt, wheat tones. Tones of fruitiness and spices. Taste: Medium sweet, fruity flavours with some malt. Some mild spiciness, even hints of pepper. Orange tones, a bit dry. I cannot pinpoint the coriander (at least as in fresh one, most often a distinct soapy flavour to me). Palate: Light body, crisp carbonation. Witbier, indeed. Good, nothing special.

Marko (4328) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 26, 2015
Courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who got it at Pivoteka Zagreb. Chalky murky dark yellow with a tiny white head. Sweetish aroma, slightly tangy, citric, lactic. Nice, mild, fruity soft lactic yeasty (in a good way) aroma, light herbal sourish aroma, creamy notes, big coriander, creamy. Nice light, refreshing, tasty.

RexTalionis (3109) - FINLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Spicyness, some wheat and floral notes in aroma. Taste has some wheat and floral notes as well. Bit spicy in finish. Thin though and seems like all the flavours are very weak.

chrisko82 (283) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Piwo słomkowe, opalizujące. Piana średniopęcherzykowa. Średniotrwała. Nie lepi szkła. W aromacie kolendra, cytrusy, skórka pomarańczową. W smaku podobnie. Z ostawym posmakiem. Wysycenie niskie. Rześkie.
