COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Vibrant yellowy golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is very citrusy and bitter, and the flavour is yeasty and citrus with some fruity dryness and bitterness. Overall a nice witbier like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.
