Hazy yellow beer, big fluffy white head. Citric and wheaty notes in the aroma with coriander, mild yeast. Flavor is spice, oranges, wheat and yeast notes. Finish is lemony, some acidity with more oranges, mild bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel, very drinkable and refreshing. Nice one.

gorkogrlo (289) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 25, 2015
Bottle. Poured at temp 5-7°c. Pours medium white head. Hazy dark yellow color. At first, when bottle is opened it smelled bad ( some kind of vinegar) but after one minute or so this unpleasant smell is gone. After that here is pleasant smell of coriander, bread and yeast. Flavor is also based on coriander and orange without any hop flavor. Maybe some apples Again some sourness in flavor. Some sweetness and dryness in finish. Light-medium body. Maybe too heavy for wit, more like hefeweizen. Overall: different wit with fuller body than I expected, also too agressive notes of alcohol. Anyway still good beer, but expected more

One of the best white beers I’ve had. A nice balance of sourness and fruitiness. Lots of subtle flavors. Refreshing amount of carbonation. Would def drink again.

AGCostaNeves (72) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - NOV 15, 2015
It has a straw yellow color with cloudy body. A white foam of flimsy and low average training duration. Small bubbles. Its aroma brings a first very characteristic yeast print with citrus fruit notes and subtle. Predominant yeast flavor marks the taste in most of the tasting. It is clear the presence of well spicy notes of herbs, cloves and coriander a light at the end Bitter a light bitterness. With a high acidity mark by a very characteristic end, strong, denoting a character marked by a beer yeast. Its texture is velvety and with a medium-high carbonation in a lightweight body. Very refreshing and high drinkability. The striking presence of yeast almost steals almost entirely your taste buds, however your final show is full flavored. A few striking beer for style enthusiasts who can find it bitter, but in fact express its complexity. A Acidity a bit steep, but does not go beyond the measure. A striking and also spicy aftertaste. A beautiful representative of style!

Aromas of coriander and zesty orange peel, some banana. Hazy straw with a mostly lasting white head. Slight initial sweetness, citrusy, with crackery malts. Light bodied.

coriander, some esters, citruses- orange, wheat. golden, hazy, white foam, quite big head, good retention. light sweetness, lightly bitter. medium body, creamy, lively, long finish, slightly sweet, slighty bitter. quite nice. the palate does not live up to the aroma though, and there is too much of orange tartnes in the taste.
