sicuramente la migliore wit beer mai assaggiata..non ne ho assaggiate moltissime è vero però questa è veramente speciale (come mi aspettavo da san bernardus del resto)..bellissimo colore pallido/biondo e schiuma fine e vellutata..profumatissima,si avverte l’aspro del coriandolo nel naso..in bocca sprigiona frutta,banana,finale amaro e secco..veramente buona

Troebelig geel bier met witte schuimkraag. Citrus in de neus met koriandertoets. Tarwe in de mond met droge afdronk. Verfrissend witbier!

BVery (6838) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Murky deep yellow pour with a smaller white head. Orange, mild pepper, coriander, bit of lemon. Medium to light mouthfeel with some lively carbonation. This is one of my favorite wit beers.

Padchenko (89) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 13, 2014
330ml bottle, 5.5%. Cloudy with a limited white head. Refreshing and fairly light for a wit beer. Limited aroma. Goes down easy, but not an abundance of tones in the falvour

OOKPIKABLE (105) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Pours cloudy with thick white head. Aroma of orange peel, cilantro and bananas. Tastes of the same with, unfortunately, a bit of an aspartamey taste in the mix, as well.

Bork (318) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Nicely citrusy with a hint of coriander. Lots of wheat at the base. Palate is a little bit foamy, but this is about as refreshing as it gets.

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
una delle migliori wit assaggiate. Profumi molto fruttati, corpo medio, briosa al punto giusto, risulta molto beverina e gradevole

ametras (481) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
330ml bottle. Milky yellow with a frothy white head. Flavors are wheat, dough, lemon, orange peel and coriander with herbal and floral notes. Light to medium body, high carbonation, smooth texture.

gregorymconway (127) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
330ml bottle from the LCBO.Beautiful hazy golden body with a white head which dissipated quite quickly. Bready and has a very present yeast character on the nose. Some spice, coriander, white pepper, lemon zest, unripened tropical fruit. Soft carbonation and bitterness. Quite sessionable. One of the best.

lesifflebiere (1328) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Une nuageuse wit qui semble avoir toutes les caractéristiques de référence : couleur paille, petite mousse blanche, nez à la fois fruité et doucereux, avec des oranges confites qui dominent. Une bouche dans les mêmes tons, avec de la poire en plus, une buvabilité haute mais pas à travers le plafond, des saveurs bien balancées et étonnamment franches pour ce style. Une wit superbe, parmi les meilleures du monde, pratiquement sans défaut. Un délice.
