tmzl (82) - SLOVENIA - JAN 1, 2014

Look: Large fizzy, big bubbles white head, very fast retention, mostly diminishing. Leaves a very thin thick layer for the whole ride. Color is cloudy - darker straw yellow - wheat! what a surprise. Some carbonation visible.

Smell: Wheat, yeast, spicy - peppers, cloves. Hint of banana and some honey. All light, goes with the style I guess. Comes off as fresh and easy going.

Taste: A bit more honey to detect. There is some grapefruit, lemon zest. This goes to light sweet wheat middle, banana, yeast and ends in light bitterness and sour with spicy/earthy honey notes. Some hop to detect. Everything is very gentle.

Mouthfeel: No surprises here too, fresh, crisp carbonation, light-med body, very drinkable, goes down easy.

Overall: Typical witbier, does down like nothing and not too much taste to stop you from drinking it like a mad man. Easy, gentle, fresh, simple but enjoyable.

zenkis (537) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 13, 2013
Very decent wit beer; pale yellow, minimal lasing, medium intense flavor; I’would not call it well balanced in flavor. Aroma also like weak wheat-citrusy. Not worth it from this style.
