nephirem (121) - CROATIA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours a hazy pale golden color with small white head. Very fruity and herbal smell with notes of coriander. Medium body with somewhat watery texture. Very tingly carbonation. Taste is mostly sour with very subtle bitternes kicking in towards the finish. Aroma of malts, wheat, grass, herbs, spices and fruits; mostly pineapple, a bit banana. Floral, herbal and very refreshing. Very nice brew, recommended.

DraftDodger (882) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Copenhagen 12/3 2016. 75 cl bottle from Fakta. The beginning of March should be the right time to drink the King of Belgian Wit. Spring awaits. Pours hazy pale yellow with white head. Settles as flimsy thin layer of foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Lemonadelike wheat with notes of oranges and banana. Some yeast in there as well. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is rather sweet - close to sugary - followed by a more sour fruityness with citrus and a little banana. Aftertaste is mostly sweet. Overall a bit watery. Nice summerbeer. Easy to drink, extremely refreshing on the verge of reminding you of a shandy and utterly forgettable.

MGantzel (183) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2016
Denne hvedeøl har et uklart gyldent udseende med et medium hvidt skum. Øllen har en frisk og hvedet aroma og smager både af hvede, frisk og med en anelse bitterhed. Medium karbonering.

Hazy light yellow-white robe, soft delicate micro foam, but a little light in taste and taste a bit flat and short on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice white head on a cloudy yellow body. Really nice citrus aroma. Easy drinking and gentle carbonation. Sweet and not bitter. Not terribly complex but really pleasant
