Bottle. Aroma like rotting citrus. This an is excellent description provided by a non-beer drinker. Having owned several citrus trees myself, this description is dead on. It is not an unpleasant aroma, but distinctive. Appearance similar grapefruit juice. Foamy head that dissipates within two minutes. Taste is typical but watery. Feel is creamy and a little oily. Aftertaste is a flat and unpleasant. I really wanted to like this beer because it is readily available in this area. With each bottle over several sittings I liked it less.

750ml bottle from Tesco - Cloudy, pale yellow body, white medium-sized head, that slowly fades away. Nose of white bread, a lot of fruit, banana, orange and coriander. Very sweet and fruity taste with banana, some coriander and some orange peel. This is decent enough for a mass produced witbier. and great for the summer.

From a can. The classic. A rather milky looking pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is a lively mix of citrus, banana, coriander, yeast, wheat. The flavour is lemon, lightly sour, wheat. I left this in the freezer for a while so it’s ice cold. It is very refreshing. A friend told me today that "witbier’s are a mistake".

Ljusgul grumlig med stort vit skum. Inte mycket doft eller smak men weissbier karaktär

Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Smells wheaty with a hint of bubblegum. Taste is sweet, but of banana with a wheat finish.

Just perfect! Best wheat beer. Strong taste. Heavy to drink too much, but very good taste.

Lukasmh (75) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Can. Pours hazy light yellow, dense fluffy two finger head. Aroma is a bit bubblegum, some pepper end citrusy. Taste is medium sweet, oranges. Bit parfume. Finish with notes of coriander and then nothing. Shame there’s nothing in the finish and feel.

Bottle. One finger fast white head, minimal lacing. Hazy yellow. Floral aroma. Crispy palate. Well balaced, delicious taste with citrus, spicies, tropical fruits and nice hops. My favourite for hot summer days.
