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

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
