htnicholas (50) - California, USA - SEP 14, 2013
From a bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a rapidly disappearing white head and no lacing. Smells of spices, coriander, lemon, and wheat. Taste is the same as the aroma but with a slightly metallic off-flavor. Finish is crisp but without any hoppiness but with a faint lingering grapefruit skin bitterness and a disquieting metallic tinge to it. The palate is very thin, relatively over carbonated, and has an absence of any substantive malt or wheat body. There is none of the inviting citrus overtones that I would normally expect from this style to provide balance. A very disappointing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice! It has more body and a somewhat fuller flavor than a Belgian white. Flavor has malts, yeast and some funkiness.The coriander and orange peel have a clear presence as well.

heavy (2662) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 17, 2016
May ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a pale yellow body with smaller head. Fine orange peel and herbal aroma along with some coriander and chalk (wheat). Flavor was neutral, between sweet, sour and bitter. Lemon, honey, tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), coriander, sweetish towards the end. Some vegetable off notes, too. Thinner in body, but not extremely, like some other wits. Nice chalky finish. A decent wit, pleasant.

Bottle at Toso. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma and taste of wheat, herbs, spice and citrus. Light and a little bit odd.

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

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.
