Akatyzja (73) - POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Mętne, o slomkowym kolorze. Piana biala, gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa. W zapachu cytryna, skórka pomarańczy, chleba, banan, kolendra, trawa, na końcu minimalnie wyczuwalna końska derka. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie: banan, cytryna, pomarańcza, kolendra i trawa. Na finishu lekka goryczka. Wysycenie małe. Rewelacyjne na upały, przepyszne piwo.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2002
Snow-white foam over hazy blond brew with a steady lazy stream of bubbles. That’s the correct type for witbier. Refreshing slightly lemony with some yeasty aromas. Refreshing nice mouth-foam, slightly yeasty, medium-bodied and quite satisfying. The standard for the witbeer I know, good but not outstanding, best in summer, drunk cold... Pretty low in alcohol, too, an advantage for ’quaffing’

Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Smells of sweet citrus, some wheat, and spices. The taste follows up on the aroma, but with more of a punch on the tastebuds. One can taste all the flavors in this beer. The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Not too much carbonation, but enough. Overall an awesome witbier and anytime beer.

Very refreshing; light but interesting; orange peel with clean finish. Bottle conditioned, unfiltered, benefits from pour into a glass. Very nice wit.

I poured an 11.2 oz bottle into a glass tulip... The beer was a light hazy yellow with a bubbly white head that receded quickly. The smell has banana/ bubblegum aroma, with lemon and wheat. The taste is similar with the banana and bubblegum, I also tasted orange peel, wheat and grassy hops. The feel is light with soft carbonation and a dry finish. I really enjoyed this beer, I could drink this on any occasion.

one of the best white beers around. Demonstrates the clear superiority of belgian white beers over german weissbier. Very refreshing though interesting aromas.

I must say I was almost not taking this one serious due to the extreme hype that it was made for me about it. Fortunatly, me foolness passed: what a pleasant surprise! Poured opaque light orange with a pretty white foam. The aroma got me with a lot of hop herbs, some yeastiness and even some citrus: pinapple and some orange; some sourness. The flavor came with little sourness coming with little sweetness as well, very well balanced. Some orange peel, little malty and mainly hoppy flavor, refreshing mouthfeel and aftertaste, that lacked a little more taste in it. Quite nice introduction to the witbiers for me! / Devo dizer que tinha algum preconceito com essa cerveja, dado o tanto que falavam pra mim dela. Felizmente, deixei de ser bobo: que surpresa agradável! Derrama laranja claro opaco com uma boa espuma branca. O aroma veio com bastante lúpulo (ervas), algo de levedura e ainda um pouco cítrico: abacaxi e laranja; algum azedume. O sabor trouxe um pouco de azedo e um pouco de doce, muito bem balanceado. Trouxe também algo de raspas de laranja, pouco malte e bastante sabor de lúpulo. A sensação na boca e no retrogosto é bem refrescante, mas faltou um pouco de sabor no final. Uma introdução muito boa das witbiers pra mim!

A great introduction to the style because of its accessibility. Still quite good but not great. Orange and lemon carry this beer and it is much better when served in the cool hexagonal glass and poured correctly. Heed the instructions. The body leaves something to be desired but nobody’s perfect. One of the finest widely available brews and one I go back to when nothing piques my curiosity.
