3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy golden with one of the biggest heads I’ve ever seen. The huge, frothy flower rose well above the glass and took its time diminishing. The aroma has strong citric fruity note with the promised orange peel and coriander. Seems fruitier and spicier than other wits. The taste has plenty of wheatish sourness, citric fruitiness and spiciness. No bitterness or other unwitbierlike elements. The palate is soft, medium bodied. Very refreshing, crisp and tasty, one of the best Wits I’ve had.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. for the Nøgne Ø event. Thanks to Kjetil Jikiun. Review from notes.
The beer is hazy and light yellow colored with a small, white head. The aroma brings citrus, light spice, wheat. It smells true to style. Nice, refreshing flavor. Light in body and well balanced. Smooth on the palate with some pleasant notes of citrus, wheat, floral hops, subtle spice. A good thirst quenching beer. I would have this again. Skål!

Poured a cloudy light yellow colour with a four-finger white foamy head that hung around for a while then diminished to a thin head that remained for the rest of the drink. Lacing was OK. Aroma of spice/coriander plus subtle sweet citrus and wheat. Taste initially sweet citrus followed by a soft spicy after-taste – quite nice. Medium body. Smooth on the palate and a finish with subtle spice.

Flaske fra ICA, batch 844A, bryggget 25.07.12: deilig aroma av krydder og appelsin og litt gjær. Smaken likeså, koriander og appelsin i skjønn harmoni med diskrete humler. En forfriskende øl! Mye smak med bare 4,5%.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear pale amber with a smallish white head. Getting spice, lemon and a sweet note on the nose. Taste is classic wit - orange, coriander and cloves - but ramped up. The spice and citrus are particularly intense, giving way to a taste similar to lemonade. Good wheat backing with a lingering palate. Would certainly have again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle. Pours slightly hazy pale straw with a gigantic fluffy white head that eventually collapses, leaving lots of thick lacing. The initial aroma is quite fruity and sweet with some yeast, once the head collapses it becomes more earthy, spicy and solventy, for which it loses a point. Mild sweetness and bitterness, wheat, yeasty, a little fruit, the citrus peel is not excessive. Light-medium body, lively carbonation, fairly short drying finish.
