Ysok02 (755) - MOns, BELGIUM - OCT 29, 2015
Robe blonde, mousse peu abondante. Nez sur les agrumes, la levure, le houblon, le malt, pointe de farine. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, fruitée, une note acidulée, et une finale amère et équilibrée. Une bière classique, bien équilibrée, agréable.

Gurthnar (4537) - 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 (712) - 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 (370) - Cheltenham, 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.

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!
