Appearance: The head is a beautiful frothy white head but it disappears fairly quickly. The body is a nice cloudy lemon-aid color. Nose: strong lemon notes; slight hefe-weizen yeast/banana notes; Taste: lemony and hops; mild banana and hefe-weizen yeast notes; carbonated bite; Finishes with a creamy balance of bitterness and lemon and hefe-weizen yeast. Mouthfeel: carbonated, creamy. Overall: It may not have the prominent delicious flavors of certain other wheat beers, but it is still very refreshing, a great summer beer, and one of my favorite go-to session beers because it is cheap, delicious, and widely available. It goes down incredibly fast and I often drink 4-5 bottles without even realizing it.

Cloudy pale yellow, small white head. Sour banana and yeast aroma. Kind of watery, thin body, average/lively carbonation. Expected so much more.

Zapach z butelki: Kolendra, wanilia, goździki. Piana: Biała, drobnopęcherzykowa. Dość sztywna, opada powoli, ostatecznie redukując się do warstwy około 5 mm. Kolor: Słomkowe, bardzo mocno zmętnione. Zapach: Goździki, gruszki, banany. W tle delikatna kolendra i nieco wyraźniejsza wanilia. Smak: Spora kwaskowość, banan z cytryną. Skontrowane pszeniczną słodowością. Bardzo cytrusowe. Tekstura: Lekkie, ale lepkie. Pozostawia osad na języku. Nasycenie Wysokie, perliste. Goryczka: Nisko-średnia, z komponentą cytrusową. Pijalność: Średnia. Tego słynnego wita szukałem nawet dłuższy czas w warszawskich sklepach - w sumie zaskoczyło mnie, że nie jest wcale taki łatwy do kupienia. Kiedy już wpadł w moje ręce, oczekiwałem wiele. Może zbyt wiele, bo pośladków mi nie urwał. Aromat bardziej przypominał mi weizena, a nie tego oczekiwałem. W smaku już było lepiej - uderza cytrusowe orzeźwienie, jednak piwo jest zbyt przyprawowe w aromacie, by piło się lekko i przyjemnie. Bukiet fenoli jednak skłania do refleksji, a nie do żłopania - a mając w ręku wita nastawiam się na sporą pijalność. Niemniej cieszę się, że spróbowałem legendy - chociaż wątpię, żebym do tego piwa powrócił - no chyba, że nie będzie wyboru. Piwo nabyłem w jednym z warszawskich delikatesów Alma za około 6,50 zł.

A nice refreshing summer beer that has pleasant citrus aroma without any notable bitterness in aftertaste. Perfect when drunk ice cold in hot weather with sour food.

Mainuh_man (96) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy pale with a small, fluffy white head. Aromas of citrus, coriander, yeast. Flavor is mild sweet at the beginning, with both citrus and coriander coming through. Becomes more sweet in the middle, finishing with a chalky, yeasty flavor. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, this beer stands as a prototype in this category, with nice aromas and a refreshing flavor. Great on a warm day!
