dutchbeerpages (1557) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2014
your typical belgian wit, but not as taste as most other wits. Doesn’t smell very nice and the coriander and orange peel don’t really add significantly better taste. from the m&s Amsterdam

500ml bottle. Pale straw. Plenty of fizz. Slight hint of orange, with spicy finish. Not impressed, but may go well with crisps or nuts.

Bottle at home, from M&S Camberley, 25/12/13. Pale golden with a thin off white covering that dissipates to pondwork. Nose is lemon rind, corriander, citric fruit zest, spice, faint caramel notes. Taste comprises orang peel, lemon zest, corriander, spice, straw. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, crisp refreshing finish with sweet notes. Absolutely fine for the style!

minutemat (1349) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml bottle drunk on a train. Straight after popping you can smell the familiar orange / coriander Huyghe aroma. Not as strong as Delirium at 4.5% but still packed with a fair amount of taste. The orange peel here is kind of tangy and really lingers on the tongue but still, compared to the beer M&S used to put out this is impressive.
