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.

50 cL bottle, thanks to faroeviking. Pours hazy yellow with a diminished white head. Citrus fruity and yeasty. Dry flavour, spiced, banana and mild wheaty. Lingering citrus finish into a solid spiced finish.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2004
An unclear yellow beer with a small collapsing whtie head. The aroma contains notes of coriander, yeast, and wheat. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of coriander. A boring wit.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2008
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is wheat, mild coriander and other spices along with some yeast and fruits. Flavour is quite much the same along with some slight hints of eggyness. Still a quite nice witbier.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Aged sample. Unclear amber golden with a tall, dissipating head. Heavy carbonation. Lovely fruity esters - oddly I sense some banana, when the style is Belgian Wit. Lightly sweet malt with notes of coriander. Pleasant all right but comes closer to a Belgian Blond Ale (probably due to it’s age). Thanks to Yngvar for this rare gem. 271105

omhper (23713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2004
Bottled. Cloudy pale yellow. Orangey aroma. Medium sweet with some rounded papery malt, but still fairly thin. There’s som oraneg jam, but the flavour is quite short, and IMO this beer does not live up to the very high expectations I have on Nøgne Ø.

Hazy gold beer. Light semi crisp and dry palate. Citrus orange and lemon with a bitter edge. A hint of spice in the aftertaste. Finishes quite soft and frothy but also with a carbonated bite. Bitter aftertaste. Impressive flavour for it’s abv.
