It’s a nice and sweet white beer. More strong then the regular one and more tasty too. Enjoyed it :)

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2015
0.33 l bottle from Firma Bier. Golden-orange color with frothy head. The aromas of herbal orange peel and restrained clovey spiciness. Sweetish orangey taste with herbal and peppery notes. The alcohol warmth is firm yet soft. Slightly dryer finish with bitter orange aftertaste. There is musty yeast taste in the background, I’m not sure whether it is part of the character or an sign of a bottle past its prime. Still, fairly good beer with powerful warmth and a pleasant herbal-orangey-bitter character.

Wow! Nice orange color,thin white head. Aroma is full of spice, orange, cloves and yeast. Taste is full mouth, high carbonation with malts, spices and little bit acid. Very complex beer and balanced. Nice beer!

Loved this beer. What is interesting is that I find a bit of eucaliptus in the nose and flavor. Also pronounced 4-vinyl guaiacol (clove), caramel. It reminds me a bit on Kwak in caramel notes. Not overly sweet, just right. Great, interesting beer.

Ysok02 (525) - 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 (3813) - 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.

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.

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.
