Macís Great White is our interpretation of a classic Belgian Witbier, with its cloudy hue complemented by notes of coriander & orange peel. A Great White without the bite.

kidmartinek (4447) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Very good. Hazy gold with a white head. The white foamy head lasts the whole drink and even stay if you let the beer sit a long while. It has a corriander aroma and flavor and a smooth, dense foamy palate.

GoufCustom (1473) - HONG KONG - OCT 11, 2015


330ml pull-tap bottle bought at 7-Eleven in Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Cloudy hazy pale straw golden colour with thin trace of yeast sediments; Half finger head with white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Excellent sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Aroma of light malt, with very strong wheat and strong tartness, strong coriander, orange peels, citrus, light banana, spices, strong yeast and very light grass; Light sweet taste of light malt, with very strong wheat, light tartness, light coriander, thin orange peels, light spices, earth, yeast, thin lemon and very light bitter grassy hops; Close to light body. Fairly slick and crisp palate; Mouth feel is light maltyness in a light slick background. Very strong wheat presence but very light tartness. Crisp and dry. Not much fruit peels and coriander as aroma suggests, mostly yeasty earthy elements with some spices to round. OkayÖ Hoppiness is very light lemon and thin grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is barely testable for an abrupt, strong wheaty finish; Quite dry after taste. Very easy and wheaty to mouth.

Comments: Its has promising aroma of strong wheat and coriander, but low tartness and lack of fruityness in taste render this one more like a Wheat Ale than a Belgian White. Drinkable, but not classy by any means.

Erzengel (7324) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2015
On tap in Hongkong at PizzaExpress. Smooth and fresh beginning. Light and fresh. Nice Belgian Wit yeast on a tart and dry body. Fresh and smooth. Dry fruity clove aftertaste. Crisp, thirst quenching but still deep. Hints of coriander and lemon in the aftertaste, hints of bitterness. Nice.
