Bought in a supermarket in Kazakhstan. A Carlsberg Kazakhstan beer. I had high hopes for this but was let down. It was my first white beer of my taste testing and it may turn out that I won’t like the taste of white beers in general. It had a clear citrus taste but I thought the taste of it was rather sickly. I appreciate that the taste is completely different to the standard variety of beers produced by Carlsberg Kazakhstan but still despite that I failed to enjoy this beer at all. Also it should be noted that the Kazakh version of this has an ABV of 4.5%

Blue bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, lemony citrus, mild spice, watery, thin, not very interesting.

Egy nagyon átlagon aluli sör. A jellegzetes kenyér íz, ami minden sörre kell, hogy jellemz? legyen, még nyomokban sem fedezhet? fel. A küls? nem minden. Egy ilyen palackba min?ségibb italt illik tölteni.

Aroma of coriander, orange and a touch of sulphur. Hazy, pale gold colour and a foamy white cap. The flavour is unripe oranges and coriander. The body is quite light and there isn’t much of an after taste with this one. A beer to serve to guests who want to try something new, but don’t want to be challenged in any way.

Oh boy. Already losing points before I open the (blue) bottle. Label says "flavored" white beer and "caramel coloring added"...don’t add crap to your beer to color it. Let it freaking be OR, crazy thought, color it with malts. Cloudy nearly opaque dark straw hue under a bubbly/rocky white head. Smells sulphuric and leafy with wheat toast and an admittedly pleasant orange rind bite. Flavor has a bit of tangerine fruitiness and a little orange zest flavor with some light passion fruit tones with a yeasty wheaty body. Light and crisp and admittedly refreshing. Not in of itself bad, but the marketing and the sulphuric aroma cost big points.

Reimer96 (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big frothy white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus and light spices. Taste is orange, coriander and wheat. Excellent crisp and light refreshing wit just a little too light for the style.

greenclansman (734) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUN 27, 2014
watery, lemon-ish, session able, citrus-y, light. nothing special, and for sure not even close to a good wit beer. although before you know you will finish it.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Bottle. Funny enough I had an Allagash White immediately before this and I consider it Americas best wheat beer - but this beer blows it out of the water. Fruity and juicy fot a witbier yet hits all the right notes of being authentic and not some mass homogenized brew. Not the second coming - but well over what I expected. Had a cloudy pale gold pour with a fizzy white head. UPDATE: Having a few days later. Does not seem as extraordinary. Muat have have been drunk before :p

Limonada color with bubbly white head. Not so good taste. Overall a poor white beer

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Clear golden coloured body with a straw white head and a slightly cloudy golden glow. Aroma of grass, light hops, yeast, wheat and a nice curacao and orange scent - not bad at all. Medium-bodied; Strong wheat and yeast flavours with some light orange flavours, straw, hay, grass, hops and a mild sweet note. Aftertaste shows some nice complexity with the malt and wheat coming through the most, but some subdued barnyardie flavours coupled with a nice yeast and hay flavour make this actually nice! Perhaps i’ve been in Asia for too long or the hot weather of Hong Kong has got to me, but this beer is actually refreshing and complex - I"m happy to be drinking it! I sampled this 50 cL can purchased a few minutes ago at 7-11 in Wan Chai on 21-June-2014 for HK$12,90 sampled here in my hotel room in Wan Chai on the Island of Hong Kong.

330 ml bottle from Systembolaget, BB 04/15 A sweet smell of peaches, citrusy and sweet taste with distict wheat maltiness. Good and fizzy carbonated. Has a ale yellow color. Pours off with a frothy white head which dissapears quite quick. Overall: A nice easy drinking wit, but a bit too sweet and artifical taste for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
