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.

Dry and herbal taste with gentle sweetness. Flavors of wheat, lemon, herbs, grass. Clean aftertaste of coriander, banana and white bread. A really nice wit.

alex_leit (503) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle 0.5 l. White, frothy, highly carbonated just like champagne. Aroma: orange, spices (coriander), too sparkling, a bit of bitterness more orange peel than hops.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas & Max. Cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is citric, zesty, wheaty, with coriander. Citric and spicy flavor, quite classic for the style. Finishes with a bitterish note. Light to medium-bodied, lively carbonation.

tbonde (181) - 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.
