A witbier from Japan, purchased in a Waitrose supermarket. A hazy golden colour with a white head that disappeared very quickly. Aromas of orange and cloves. The taste was a little disappointing and without the citrussy zestiness and ripe banana flavours that I usually associate with a good witbier. I found the taste a little creamy and dull, with a rather short finish. Not a bad effort, but not as good the typical Belgian witbiers, or indeed as our own local Camden Gentleman’s Wit, which I have sampled on draught but not reviewed yet.

Calisky (1028) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 14, 2014
Couleur jaune un peu trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez fruité, agrumes, houblonné frais (on pourrais croire à une IPA légère) avec notes de gingembre confit et levures.. Gout fruité (fruits jaunes), citron confit, levures, note mangue, gingenbre, coriandre, voir meme menthe épicée. Superbe! De loin la meilleure blanche que j’ai gouté., alors que c’est pas mon style. Elle se démarque beaucoup des blanche belges sur les saveurs.

dambor (65) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Pours straw coloured, not clear, medium head. Aroma: very nice orange, coriander and some grass aromas. Taste: similar to the aroma but not as intense as I was hoping. However, generally a great beer-especially for the summer.

Pours a cloudy straw gold with a short white head. It has a nice aroma of pale malt, orange and coriander, and some bread. The flavor is spice and some orange and malt up front with a slightly sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
