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: It’s very smooth and creamy. It goes down easily and has medium carbonation. Overall: Very well balanced, a great beer all around. It’s a very filling and satisfying. so not something you want to have two or three of. It’s a beer to sit down with for a while, enjoy the nuances in it and have a good time.

tricksta_p (3254) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is wheat, spicy yeast, fruity notes, lightly bready, touch of citrus. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and slightly bitter. Body is medium. Okay Wit but nothing special.

Bottle in wine glass. This is a great wit and I am not surprised, coming from such a respectable brewery.

daje (3782) - NORWAY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle, april 1th 2016. Hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma is citric with spicy and banana yeast esters. Taste of orange, choriander, yeast and wheat. Fresh citric finish, with a lasting yeasty aftertaste, nice.

AntonyWilson (97) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 15, 2016
330ml bottle: Pours a cloudy straw colour, with a persistent white head. Interesting notes of yeast, citrus and spice on the nose. It keeps one guessing on the taste with hints of lemon, orange, coriander and slight bubblegum. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a very close second to Pierre Celis’ witbier.

JFF (113) - - JUL 14, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl. Au nez, un peu fade. Bonne mousse blanche. Robe dorée claire si on verse tranquillement sans la lie, mais trouble ŕ souhait pour le style en versant tout. En bouche, légers arômes de bananes, levures et pain. Tout est dans la subtilité pour cette bičre, malgré le taux d’alcool un peu élevé pour le style et qui, pour le coup, est bien balancé.

Fules (652) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 10, 2016
Gyönyörű átlátszatlan borostyánsárga, habja kb. másfél centi, és tartós. Citrusos, komlós illat. Íze enyhén citrusos, komlós, pici élesztős beütéssel a korty végén. Iszonyúan jól csúszik, utóíze nagyon gyenge, enyhén komlós kesernyés. Szénsavas sör. Kissé jellegtelennek találom.

Not the best beer from this brewery! Still quite drinkable and refreshing when it is cold. I can taste some similarities with Weizen-Bier! Overall - not bad!
