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 (294) - 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
