tbonde (192) - DENMARK - APR 8, 2015
50cl bottle@mexican food restaurant@approx 7 degrees C. Pours either almost clear or quite misty yellow depending on how you pour with regards to the yeast. Huge white head with good retention. Very clear wit aroma of coriander, citrus, yeast and a hint of bitter orange. Rounded, almost heavy, wit taste, bordering on hefeweissen as it gets warmer, but in a nicely balanced sense. Good wit. Nøgne Ø again show their craftmanship. Well tasting in itself and also a great companion to quite heavy, spized mexican food.

swieca (120) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Golden with nice white head. Aromas of orange, coriander and yeast. Too much carbonation for me. Taste is dry, lightly sour. Not bad but I’ve tried better witbiers.

Hazy pale orange beer with big white head. Aroma and flavor have coriander, pineapple, orange and raspberry. Palate is thin with strong carbonation and feel of bitterness. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Refreshing, a wit with a load of hops.

Hazy white orange with white head. Aroma is coriander, citrus and spicy belgian yeast. Aroma is on the sweet side. Round and fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, sweet, sour, hop bitterness and lingering malt finish. Overall: Well made.
