Fresh, sweet-sour beer. Easy drinkable and especially nice on a sunny day, but not the best in it’s kind.

Fris geurend met citrus hinten, weinig diepgang. Schuimkraag trekt snel weg en is dun. Fris zoet lichte bitters met citrus ook in smaak weinig diepgang maar verfrissend en warm in afdronk. Aangenaam zomers.

31/VIII/14 - 25cl bottle @ Stella Maris, parish community house (Knokke-Heist) - BB: 1/XI/14 (2014-960)

Cloudy light beige beer, big solid creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: spicy, dry, coriander, yeasty, some banana peel, bit of citrus. MF: ok carbon, medium body, smooth creamy texture. Taste: spicy, little sourish, coriander, soft bitterness, yeast, little sweet. Aftertaste: dry, some banana, spicy, coriander, sour notes. Apparently they haven’t been fucking around with this recipe too much, nice!

Light blond, hazy, nice white foam. Aromas of lemon and coriander. Taste is quite sweet but well balanced. Very refreshing.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Full of wheat and a citrus backdrop, really nice Appearance- A bright yellow color with a hint of murkiness that has a nice white head. Taste- A sweet medium flavored beer with a light bitterness, very refreshing Palate- A great medium bodied beer with a creamy texture and a light amount of carbonation Overall- Excellent Witbier, becoming very popular where I live in Georgia. I would definitely drink this where available.

Bottled. Pale golden color. Aroma is wheat and banana. Flavor is bananas and cloves. Nice. This is my main beer I recommend to people who are unused to beer. So easy to drink.

Cerveja de trigo leve, aveluda e levíssimo amargor, malte acentuado no início. Năo é a melhor deste estilo mas é uma boa pedida.

Pierwsza testowana butelka była wyśmienita, wszystko na swoim miejscu w witbierze. Druga charakteryzowała się zbyt mocną kolendrą przykrywającą resztę smaku i czyniącą piwo nieciekawym.

Transfer from BA review on 5-17-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a hazy straw colored brew with a two finger white head. The head had a moderately good level of retention, fading over time to give decent lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of wheat and citrus with the citrus being of lemon and grapefruit. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter spicier aromas of a coriander and some lemongrass, producing overall a classic wit aroma Taste –The taste begins with a wheaty and lemon flavor upfront. The taste sweetens quickly as flavors of tangerine and banana come to the tongue. Along with these sweeter flavors, so to comes a light spice flavor of coriander. These tastes take the taste to its end, leaving a sweet citrus flavor of orange and sweet white grapefruit as well as some wheat flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly lighter side with a carbonation level that is a tad on the higher side. The overall feel is rather nice of the style as it makes it quite easy to drink and suits the sweeter and citrus flavors quite well. Overall – Quite an easy drinking and refreshing wheat and sweet citrus brew.

Birra fruttata. Molto delicata e somigliante alle chimay . Poco aggressiva al palato. Se versata bene sprigiona ottimu retrogusti.
