Very floral in both the noise and the taste. Comes off a little watery but still a good refreshing beer.

On tap at Brooks Place Tavern. Pale yellow-gold and hazy appearance with a white head. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, wheat malts, herbs, light spice and light Belgian yeast. Similar flavor, smooth, crisp and zesty with a nice balance. Light to medium body with a lingering orange finish. Refreshing and easy to drink.

Cimbasso (234) - - NOV 16, 2014
Sampled from the bottle at O’Leary’s at Oslo Gardermoen airport. The colour is a hazy gold with a dense white head. Pleasant aromas of lemon, orange, vanilla and spices. The taste is a mixture of sweet and sour, with the sweetness of the malt contrasted with sharper citrus flavours. There also flavours of ripe banana, bubble gum, coriander and vanilla. A long finish, dominated by banana and coriander flavours. A classic witbier, this is a very pleasant ale, but not as complex as some artisanal beers of this kind.
