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

Marko (4327) - 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 (3106) - 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.

Piwo słomkowe, opalizujące. Piana średniopęcherzykowa. Średniotrwała. Nie lepi szkła. W aromacie kolendra, cytrusy, skórka pomarańczową. W smaku podobnie. Z ostawym posmakiem. Wysycenie niskie. Rześkie.

King_Alex_II (671) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Orange-yellow color with fast decaying foam. Light yeasty smell. The taste is partially fresh and a little spicy, but also yeasty and with hints of cookie. Present bitterness and a lively carbonation. Smooth and calm aftertaste with still some cookie flavor.

Didn’t quite know what to expect from a beer mixed with orange juice. Not much aroma, but tasting it was a pleasant surprise. Very interesting mix of orange juice / zest and spices, well carbonated and refreshingly fruity, almost citrusy dry mouthfeel. You can easily have more than one of these at hot summer days. Recommended.

330ml Drunk from a Meantime tulip-pint . Ok the coolest fucking bottle in history .!!! Just look at the Japanese writing mixed with some owl that resembles a hallucination . This is actually a rerate and I got through one bottle in 3 mins and 17 seconds . Yes , this beer does what Witbiers should , it refreshes and goes down faster than a Japanese hooker on the wrong side of tokyo . Second bottle The nose suggested here ....brings fourth accents of coriander , rich orange zest that screams with zest , wheaty breakfast ceral ....Pours with a large foamy white head that dies too soon above banana murky colour . Spicy palate. Tart orage zest is bitter and refreshing . Dry finish almost cleans the fatty Salmon I ate before on my palate . A relaxing take on the style .
