3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
THOUGHTS: A true classic. The inspiration for countless beers. A wonderful thirst quencher. Lots of flavor in a little beer. Nice session beer from long before the term was popular.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a murky, light, milky yellow with an average, white head that kept a nice sheet and left fair lacing. The aroma contained moderate wheat; plenty of coriander; lemon and oranges. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, slightly sour, and heavily acidic. There was wheat, oranges, and coriander. The light to medium body was creamy with rather fizzy carbonation and dry and lightly astringent finish.

Botella. Color pomelo totalmente turbio. Muchísima espuma de color blanco. Aroma a plátano, lúpulo y cítricos.
En boca predomina el plátano. Entra muy refrescante con una carbonatación media. Tira un poco a acuosa, pero es bastante agradable.

Alla spina. Colore giallo paglierino velato con una schiuma bianca e fine, aroma di banana, limone e una leggera speziatura, al palato impressiona per la facilitŕ di bevuta, qui il limone si fa sentire un po di piů insieme a una buona nota dolce. Birra ideale per combattere il caldo e la sete.

From 12oz bottle, purchased at Trader Joe’s about $1.25 for bottle
Aroma: sweet, oranges, banana
Appearance: golden, cloudy, white head
Taste: light sweet, light bitter
Palate: light, thin, average carbonation
Overall: Feels very thin/watery to very light bodied to me. Definitely easy to drink. The orange is present, but I can’t taste or smell the coriander. Nice dry finish, really like the dry finish. A little more banana aroma than I thought it should have. Looking for a bit more body. Not tasting the ’sour’ taste, but the body/thin is throwing me off quite a bit.

Dobry witbier. W tym piwie podoba mi się to, że słodowość pszeniczna jest dobrze wyczuwalna. Wiele witów jej nie ma - dla mnie duży plus dla tego piwa właśnie za to.

750ml bottle pours a hazy light yellow with a good, white, lasting head. Nose is mild yeast, fresh citrus and zingy, gingery spice.taste follows, mild oranges, slight lemon kick and a bit of rounded, mild spice. Mouth feel is great, quite watery but really refreshing and the flavours carry all the way through. Long fruity finish with a nice touch of spicey warmth. Wow, not had this in a while and it is better than I remember.

Pours straw colour with no head. Hazy stucture, fast rising bubbles-high carbonation. Aroma without presence of alcohol, only fruity-floral aroma, with notes of bread and pine. Similar is taste: without presence of alcohol, little citrusy, tropical...hop bitterness is medium. Hop bitterness is well balanced with malt sweetness; malt sweetness, with notes of wheat, is medium. Body is dry, bitterness is low-medium, also bitterness in finish. Drinkable and appropriate beer for its style.

A class act. Looks great - cloudy with a snowy white head. Low carbonation, easy to drink and very smooth. As easy to session as it is to savour the flavour. A hit of fruit, then some bitterness. Although fruity, it’s like the Erdinger Weissbrau type beers in that the fruit is not overpowering and they deliver it in an almonst mellow way, unlike English ales which can be much less refined with the delivery of fruity flavours. Very well balanced between fruitiness and bitterness. Almost a smoky taste to it too. I much prefer this to English type ales. If you don’t really like English type ales, don’t be put off trying this, as it’s very different.
