COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
750ml bottles - filtered.
Note: Although the brewery website lists the beer at 5.6%, the label clearly states 5.5%.

A Belgian Wit beer, brewed with a proportion of unmalted wheat, and spiced with coriander, kiwi fruit & honey
A hugely refreshing beer with a charm that is easy to grasp. Attractive with a pale hazy glowing gold, capped by a rocky white head formed from the wheat proteins and high carbonation.This beer will remind you of: Bright summers days; poolside; al fresco; Turner paintings; a cool wind off the sea. This beer is as bright and sunny as Icarus himself.

oh6gdx (22640) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some mild wooden notes as well as some wheat and mild acidicness. Flavour is fruity, floral, some citrus,zest nad mild spiced notes. Refreshing, and actually a quite ok Witbier for being from outside of Belgium.

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
33cl fancy bottle split at The Rake, London. It pours a clean straw color with a minimal white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet, with notes of wheat, hay, bubble-gum, honey melon. Taste is sweet and fruity, with notes of peaches, honey melon, caramel, starch. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, doesn’t really hit the mark as a witbier given the sweetness

olliejobbins (1324) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
375ml bottle. contrary to the note in the description, my bottle is 6%. pours completely clear yellow with thin soapy white head. seems to have changed slightly after having read other peoples’ reviews with the change in ABV. aroma wheaty, yeasty and fruity but you can tell it’ll be sweet. the taste is hugely sweet. sort of cream soda mixed with pineapple. undoubtedly a witbier but way too sweet.

Leighton (14043) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London. Thanks to Colin. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a fine, white foam head. White bread aroma with light lemon notes. Medium sweet flavor, some dry dough, faint bitter straw. Light to medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, some dryish white bread, light yeast. Decent beer overall but doesn’t quite hit the bullseye, stylistically speaking.

FatPhil (10893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2013
500ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Fruity aroma - kiwi, and sharp pineapple. Smooth in the mouth, nice carbonation. Over fruity for me, and a bit sharp.

Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Theydon_Bois. It pours clear pale yellow with a medium white head. The nose is fresh kiwi, spice, perfume, dough and wheat. The taste is wheat, light spice, soap, kiwi, herbal accent and some zesty citrus with a dry, lightly spiced finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Well-rounded and very drinkable.
