tmrmwel (1138) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2015
Old rating. Pours hazy, very light yellow, with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and sweet citrus with orange peel, as well as bubblegum and coriander. Full body, with quite fizzy carbonation. Flavour is sweet fruity yeast, as well as some light, grainy malts.

beer_rookie (40) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Aroma is full of the coriander spice. Spice spice baby!!...Appearance, I love unfiltered beers! This one is pretty. It pours an applesauce color, and being cloudy like it is, it looks like applesauce. Pours a super foamy head, wouldn’t call it thick though. It didn’t last long...Taste is not so good. The description above calls it "sweet and sour" and my thought is it leans more toward the sour. After the head goes away it’s better, I’m still not impressed. The orange peel comes through more so now....Mouthfeel, it’s quite carbonated, and it’s soft, and still sour....Overall, at first I thought I had a skunk, it was very sour. But my thoughts changed a little after the head went away, but my ratings reflect my average reaction to it. EXPIRATION DATE IS 20 MONTHS AWAY!! What’s up with that?

Classica blanche di ottima fattura. Sia al naso che al gusto la scorza di arancia prevale e il coriandolo ne fa da ottimo compagno. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Cloudy straw-orange body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Orange zest, light coriander, soft wheat, light cracker. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, gentle sweetness through, clean, refreshing finish. Not overly complex, but well executed and enjoyable.

floydslip (226) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Cloudy straw colored beer with a thick foamy bright white head that lasts. Nose of orange, coriander, and pepper. Bracing citrus flavor hits immediately before subsiding into layers of spice and sugar with virtually no bitterness at all--it comes across as a really good shandy with some added spice. Crisp and refreshing, this is pretty delicious and about the easiest drinking beer out there (I finished the whole glass while writing this), but I’m not in the mood for another.

Cokemonkey11 (92) - - MAR 20, 2015
Dark Bottle, Tesco, Edinburgh City. Pours light amber with a thick, foamy head, subsiding slowly. Scent is medium wheat, but simple. Taste is a dense wheat and weizen yeast with a little hint of citrus, maybe coriander. Palette is light and simple, but not detracting. A good beer.

MMJL (168) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Zapach z butelki to przede wszystkim słód pszeniczny i drożdże. Kolor piwa to ciemna słomka, jest ono całkowicie mętne. Piana wysoka, idealnie biała, w miarę drobna, powoli opada do niskiej. Aromat ze szkła niby jest dosyć „witowy”, bo są drożdże, jest słód, ale ze skórką pomarańczy jest już tam gorzej, nie mówiąc już o kolendrze, której nie wyczuwam prawie w ogóle. W smaku ponownie w miarę wyraźnie czuć skórkę pomarańczy. Kolendra jest, ale bardzo nikła. W samym piwnym ciele nie ma niczego ciekawego – wygląda na to, że jest ono dosyć wysoko odfermentowane, a przez to puste i nieco wodniste. Wysycenie wysokie, ale typowe dla stylu. Trudno się zachwycić tym piwem, choć nie jest ono złe. Biorąc pod uwagę, że jest ono koncerniakiem, to można się wręcz pokusić o stwierdzenie, że jest wybitne. Uważa się je za ikonę stylu, niemniej jak to w koncerniakach, zostało mocno uładzone na potrzeby masowego odbiorcy.
