Aroma är rätt intressant. Fruktig och känner en hint av gummi. Typ kondom?! Smaken, sur och allmänt jävlig.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013

Cloudy golden colour; Small head and foam which fades in less than 1 minute; Light body, so-so lacing with weak to minimal carbonation; Strong and persisting aroma of grapefruit, peach and lemon; Taste is mild in line with Belgian white / witbier, muted sweetness with orange, trace of coriander, and a bubbly citric tartness finish. No hop bitterness. Slightly dry after taste.

Comments: compares to Hoegaarden, this one has a stronger aroma and taste; on the minus side, the appearance is disappointing, citrus aroma seems artificial, head and carbonation is very weak, and a watery body. Even though I am not a fan of Hoegaarden, this one is in no way to overtake the “standard”. If I really want something mindlessly strong, well this is it. Then again, this is not what witbier is about, right?

Fruity, orange flavour over the usual Kronenbourg 1664. Pours a misty beige, with a fruity beer aroma.

barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2013
Aroma has orange, touch of lemon, some mandarin notes, and even maybe a touch of apricot and peach. Appearance is a nice opaque yellow colour with a light large-bubbled white head. Taste is nice peach and orange peel notes, peach dominates, touch of apricot and lemon. Palate has a nice effervescence and touch of tartness and bitterness around mouth, on cheeks in particular. Overall, surprisingly good blanche for 1664.

Idiosynkrasie (5852) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2013
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy pale golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has an intense, minimally artificial, peach note. Taste is initially moderately sweet fruity with a peach note, later with a citrusy sherbet touch - slightly artificial throughout; a bit flat and watery overall.

Lore (1892) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 really attractive appearance with typical belgian white beer colour and correct head; sourish aroma - so far, it is ok, but the taste ruins the perfect experience; in fact it is quite bad...I would not call it as belgian whitebeer; it has some artificial sourish lemonade taste with some annoying sweetener taste.

Bygers (1122) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a light yellow color ale. Medium white foamy head that leaves a minimal lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt. Taste is dominated by lightly sweet malt, watery with hint of coriander and orange peel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Melker (247) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2012
Hazy yellow colour, huge head. Strong aroma of lemons and dishwater. Taste is artificial orange. Feels like a mix between a pale lager and a wit.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours very pale yellow, quite cloudy, 1-finger white head, great lacing. Nose is lemon, wheat, candy. Very simple. Flavours of spritzy lemon, fresh orange, very thin. Boring.
