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.

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.

aleksander9 (1226) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2014
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.

Holmen2 (2703) - NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Pale and greyish pineapple juice colour. Receding white head. Green apples in aroma. Fine wit-taste, but still with a hint of green apples. A bit waterish mouthfeel.

Hazy straw color, thick white head. Fruit and citrus nose, Belgian yeast, banana, coriander. Sweet citrus taste, wheat, light coriander and pepper, fruity notes, slightly dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Great beer considering the low abv.

Classic white with typical coriander and oranges. Some spices combined with a bit if hops. Easy to drink and really refreshing.

bbertels (310) - NORWAY - JUL 27, 2014
Overall, this beer is a nice variety of a low-alcohol wit; perhaps on the fresh side of spectrum. However, not too much of a mouthfeel and a bit too hoppy for this type of beer to make it really to the top.

McTapps (6395) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from trade with Cunningham - many thanks, Henrik! The beer pours out in a hazy light golden colour with airy head and medium body. Aroma of yeast, wheat and flowers. Taste of wheat, mild yeast, flowers, coriander, herbs, oranges and thyme. Refreshing and easy drinkable. Enjoyed it.
