COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En dejlig frisk øl brygget på bygmalt og hvede, humle og krydderier. Wit fra Hornbeer er en let øl med kun 4,2 pct alkohol. Wit er med højt kulsyreindhold der er med til at lave det flotte hvide skum. Wit er øllet der erstatter hvidvinen til de lette forretter med skaldyr, fisk, kylling og andre lette sager. Wit er den idelle øl som tørstslukker efter at græsplænen er slået, hækken klippet, opvasken klaret eller sengen er redt eller avisen er halvt læst. Man kan vel strengt taget sige, at Wit stort set kan drikkes altid ...

Japalo (1173) - DENMARK - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle@Præstemosen. exp 2009 Golden clear. One finger foam. Plenty of carbonation left. Phenol coriander clove notes. Fresh after all these years. Not bad.

laiti (5694) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2013
50 cl bottle (4,3%) @ home. Rated on 11.10.2009
Lots and lots of foaming after the bottle was opened – and even more foam when pouring. Aroma feels a bit messy with wheaty notes and some citron. Palate is surprisingly too high on CO2. Flavour has soapy citrus, some spices and wheaty notes. Also a vichy‐like feeling typical to beers too high on CO2. Too messy but not hopeless.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2012
Spicy aroma of citrus and yeast. violent foam shower and immediately disappears almost completely. The carbonation destroys the flavor. Again one must wonder how the beer got through quality control ... (almost as sour as gousse)

jonas (5642) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2010
Århus Ølfestival 2008. Hazy pale yellow, creamy white head. Papery, spicy, perfumed aroma. Light body. A bit worty, straw base flavor. Lemon, grass aftertaste.

Forsberg_dk (258) - DENMARK - AUG 26, 2010
50 cl bottle, total gusher, pours reddish with a huge white head, aroma is spices and wheat, taste is slightly sour with spices and wheat malt, weak finish, thin body, not my kind of beer and borderline drainpour.

rosenbergh (6828) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2010
500 ml bottle. 4.3%. Finland.
Hazy darkish yellow orange colour with massive fluffy foamy white head. Foams out of the bottle and it’s hard to pour because it foams like hell. BB is 16.07.2012. Yeast, wheat and spices in aroma. Yeast, malt, wheat and spices in flavour. Mild metallic notes. Thin and watery.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 25, 2010
Bottled. Hazy yellowish orange colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is wheat, coriander, spices, some slight fruity as well as acidic notes. Flavour is coriander, zest, some wheat, mild acidic wooden notes as well. OK Witbier, but a rather "mainstream" beer by Hornbeer...

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2009
Bottled (BB 07/2012), alc. 4.3%
Hazy orange color, huge foamy white head. Coriander, orange peels and herbs in the nose. Very active carbonation. Flavor has wheat, coriander and vegetables. Too crisp, slightly odd. Not the best of Hornbeers.

courtesy of Antonio Ruiz - fully cloudy lactic orange colour with a little persistent white foam; aroma of banana, tangerines and undefined spices; medium-bodied and acidic; a weird salty/bitter finish and a long spicy and fruity aftertaste

tlind2 (1132) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2009
500 ml bottle. Straw color, insane white head that just goes everywhere. Slight, spicy aroma. Watery flavor with some wheat and spices. Desperately needs more body. High carbonation.
