COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate ale brewed with wheat and pilsner malt then lightly hopped to provide a low bitterness which allows the yeast flavours and spices to shine. Brewed with traditional coriander and sweet orange peel.

Poured very lively, bubbly straw with a huge white head which gives no sign of ever diminishing. Aroma of spicy citrus. Light, watery body, flavour of weak coriander, some citrus sweetness. Poor.

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy light straw colour with a huge frothy white head, which probably had more to do with the server than the beer. The aroma is not surprisingly of crushed bananas, leading to a slightly hoppy, very weak bitter flavour and not what I expected at all. Yes the banana is still there on the palate, but this is a rather zesty, refreshing slightly acidic beer and much more to my taste than a more traditional Witbier.

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold, with a large white head, which lasts very well and leaves decent lacing. Coriander is the most prominent aroma, with orange and light biscuit malt notes playing supporting roles. Slightly sweet orange peel up front combines with banana and faint biscuit malt leading through into the mid-palate. Spicy yeast notes come in leading into coriander in the finish, which leaves a sweetly spicy aftertaste. There’s nothing too complex or groundbreaking going on here, this is simply a clean, refreshing interpretation of the style.

330ml bottle. Fruit, spice and yeast on the nose. Lovely yeast and spice flavours . A refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 330ml from Swords Victoria Market. Nice and malty. Aromas of banana, grain, caramel, and citrus. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Yellow, cloudy, with a thin head.

Good size head that hung around on a orangey golden body. Orange in the aroma and a touch of coriander which comes through more in the taste, orange still there though, great drinking.

Huge head poured from this beer, i had to let it settle for a few minutes to be able to pur the rest of the glass. There were quite a lot of ester aromas present in this beer, very fruity and a little spicy too. Mouthfeel is medium body, fizzy, moderate bitterness. I think this was a well brewed beer that captured the style well, very resfreshing on a warm spring day. the only negative was the overly high carbonation. I know these beers should be well carbonated but this was too much for me.

Hazy honey gold with moderate carbonation. Nice wheaty aroma, but not that overwhelming bready, cereal aroma that can accompany some witbiers. Wheat flavour (as you would expect), and a nice spicy touch to it. Nice beer.

Davros (1943) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2011
Pours gold with a massive head fed by lively carbonation. Nose shows orange peel, vegetal-like coriander, doughy wheat and some spicy phenols. Perhaps a bit heavy-handed with the orange peel. Flavours instead focus on the coriander, with the doughy wheat showing soon afterward. The finish is slightly metallic. Carbonation is much too high.

330ml bottle. This one is all head initially with a big billowing cloud of deep white foam which settles eventually. Underneath the foam is a cloudy amber beer that gives off pleasing aromas of citrus and coriander with some banana and bubblegum thrown in. Very clean on the palate and light in the mouth. The flavour is mild with a sweet aftertaste.
