Keg at the Beavertown Lervig tap takeover. Aroma is mineral orange, hop leaf, wheat doughy grains. Flavour is crisp dougyy grains, orange hop matter. Hazed orange golden coloured pour with a thick lasting white head. Palate is light and grainy, wheat, highish carbonation. OK. Nothing special.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Keg at the Beavertown tap takeover, 25/04/15. Lightly hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is yeast, banana, straw, light citric rinds, grassy, peach. Taste comprises caramel, banana, candyfloss, bubblegum, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, more a Belgian Ale hybrid than a witbier for me.

Uklart ferskenfarget med kort hvitt skum. Lukt av brøddeig, banan og noe sur frukt. Søt banan i smaken med en sur avslutning. Utvannet smak og noe høyt på kullsyre.

tbonde (139) - DENMARK - MAR 20, 2015
33cl bottle@home in large tulip glass at aprox. 8 degrees. Pours hazy off yellow with nice white head. Primary aroma seems to be of American hops, though there is none in there, and citrus with a hint of coriander. All this is reflected in the taste which is not as exotic as eg. a Hoegaarden but still nicely spiced. A nice beer though it veers more and more towards a, mind you tastey, pilsner as I drink it. Perhaps the ideal beginners Wit as the yeast is also very subdued. I like it and will try it colder come summer.

DruncanVeasey (7551) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
October 2014. 27 NOK bottle in Bergen from Rimi supermarket. Pours fully opaque witbier orange with a slim white foam. Aroma mellow citrus spice with perfumed hints of coriander, curry leaf, mustard and dill. Low condition with orange barley squash, watery coriander and pineapple impressions; empty and slightly soapy finish. Throwaway but pleasant budget supermarket offering for impoverished Englishmen in Bergen.
