This Belgian Ale is what you could call a wit with an attitude. We are generous with all our ingredients - including both orange peel and coriander. This does not stop this ale from being a good companion with seafood dishes.

Recommended serving temperature 8°C/45°F.

11P 20 IBU 4,5% ABV.

Nonshaugen (398) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2016
50 cl, bottle conditioned, batch #1548-C. Hazy, lemon-yellow, rich carbonation, thin head. Aromas of wheat and fruity yeast esters. Sparkling mouthfeel, very refreshing and citrusy. Orange peel and spicy coriander. Very nice indeed. With yeast sediments added and a more aggressive pour, it becomes even more hazy, with a two-finger off-white head. It make quite a difference in the aftertaste, and make it last longer.

McWorta (1413) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 13, 2016
Orange-amber light hazy with a frothy off white head. Aromas of wheat, coriander and orange zest predominates. Pretty effervescent, bright texture with a lively-tangy body. Some light wheat sweetness with a subtle bitterness and faint astringency develops. Short finish.

Aroma of malt, citrus and yeast. Taste is much of the same but also hops and coriander. A little bit to much of them both I think, at least og the coriander. Ok for a supermarkedbeer, but not much more.

bottle from bp trade. pretty flavorful wit - assertive on both the orange and coriander. Nice yeasty brew underneath as well. Heavy for 4.5%, but nice.

Foffern (1623) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle. Has a hazy yellow color with an off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, hay, soap and coriander. The flavor is quite similar. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, medium body, and a light bitterness. A great wit. Well balanced and fresh.

Bottle at home. Pours a pale, hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, grass and hay, some earthy marks. Medium carbonation, taste is a bit plain for me. Overall a nice, light, refreshing beer with no surprise, could be a great drink for a hot summer day.
