VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - AUG 31, 2013
Presentation: 330mL brown bottle, served in an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Two finger, fluffy white head, with a cloudy, deep gold color. Smell: The stronger aromas are of malt, banana, coriander and a faint anise scent in the background. Taste: Very balanced sweet and sour taste. The more prominent notes are of malt, yeast, anise and clove. Mouthfeel: Itís very smooth and creamy. It goes down easily and has medium carbonation. Overall: Very well balanced, a great beer all around. Itís a very filling and satisfying. so not something you want to have two or three of. Itís a beer to sit down with for a while, enjoy the nuances in it and have a good time.

ForlornHope (206) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
33 CL bottle at home. Pours like a good wheat beer, a swirl of the sediment gives it the requisite cloudiness. Aroma: musty, zesty, slightly sour. Taste is slightly sweet, them moves to a dryness. Zesty, sharp, lemony palate. Tasted on a hot day and really enjoyed this - sharp and the slight sourness makes it very refreshing.

Pours a hazy golden body with a medium head. Nice yeasty aroma with a hint of malts. Disappointing taste that is rather flat and grassy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy yellow, big white head. Aroma of coriander, sweet orange, citrus and wheat. In taste citrusy with coriander note, not overpowered by it. Low body, dry, citrusy and low bitter finish. Very drinkable and tasty wit.

MarkoNm (1744) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours a hazy and very pale yellow color, topped with a frothy white head, rather small. Typical and very pleasant citrusy aroma with some spices (coriander, though Iím not an expert). Taste is sweet and wheaty, citric with some mild yeasty presnece. All in all a real nice wit.
