Gurthnar (4451) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Hazy orange colour, stable white head. Aroma betrays fruitiness, yeasty notes as well as typical subtle Belgian spices. All of that is present in flavour as well, in appropriate balance. This is no wit anymore, but a true characterful Belgian strong. Rich and complex, with full mouthfeel, and high carbonation to make it easy drinking. Very good.

fdomig (691) - München, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2015
330ml bottle in "The Drunken Clam" Sanremo, Italy. Aroma is light citrus, light yeast. Appearance is cloudy yellow with a medium entire foam. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. A light dryness. Very nice.

LazyPyro (326) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
330ml bottle. Hazy orange colour with a creamy white head. Lovely aroma of orange, spices, yeast. Smooth feel with a flavour of orange, yeast, malts and mildly spiced, probably with coriander, similar to a standard Hoegaarden. Really love this one, hard to choose which I prefer between this and normal Hoegaarden.

Excelente cerveja. Muit saborosa. Me lembra um pouco a delirium tremens. Tomei em Bruxelas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kajser27 (1062) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 30, 2015
Cloudy, orange colored, medium strong white creamy head. Nice and intense aroma of oranges, spices, bit coriander, brewing sugar and Belgian yeast. Taste is medium sweet wheat, brewing sugar, spice, coriander, again strong orange notes. Medium bodied and carbonation. Low+ spicey bitterness. Lasting aftertaste. Surprisingly good!

DutchMark (323) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2015
Nice strong Belgian. Maybe lacks some depth but I like the vinous flavor with some yeast, cilantro and floral hops. Not excellent but tasty and very drinkable.

llucmaduell (127) - barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 21, 2015
Balance, subtlety, evolution, nuanced without excesses or fanfare but with an incredible quality. A great beer to enjoy it calmly and without haste. Just do not abuse it to enjoy it fully and if you can, let it evolve in the bottle.

Lekker fruitig, beetje kruidig. Iets sterker in aroma dan in smaak, maar al met al een erg lekker bier.
