BenWesthof (195) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2016
A decent strong tasting beer, that in spite of that still doesn’t have enough "body" in my opinion.

caribou43 (237) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 2, 2016
It is a nice beer. The foam is weak and white. The color is like a hefe-weizen brown-orange. The taste in the mouth is pleasant malty with maybe some wheat and a banana side. The taste is a bit like a franziskaner hefe-weizen, there is some coriandre and something like ginger bread.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle at home. Poors slightly hazy dark blonde with white head. Lots of cloves, yeast, gumball coatings. Overall sweet, with hoppy bitter finish. Body is quite full. Taste is average Belgian, not really interesting but not bad either.

mrjez (245) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 17, 2015
Pours a hazy darkish-gold with a nice creamy finger of head. Aroma is a mix of wheat of herbal qualities, some orange coming though, spices. A malty wheats flavour with hints of fruit, spice, some sugar sweetness, a little alcohol at the end. The body is quite full, a lingering mix of flavours, with a notable fizz and bitter finish, accentuated by spice. Lovely.

Demens (56) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 11, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 0,33 bottle. Long lasting but small white head. Aroma: little, citrus and sweetnes. Taste: Now that is a different cup of tea. Almost like witbier but suddenly a lot of sweetnes, citrus, herbs. Medium body and carbonization. Sweet happiness and some bitterness in the finish. One of my favourite beers.

Clear golden liquid, with little bits at the bottom. Average head. Fruity aroma of hops. Light body, average carbonation. Taste is bitter and a bit sweet.
