Cloudy golden yellow pour with a nice thick, fluffy white head. The perfect looking Witbier. Aroma is light and pleasant. Lemon zest, sweet dough, white pepper. Very refreshing taste. Slightly spicy on the front end, followed by oranges, honey, and coriander. Finish is dry and clean. Flavor is slightly more subdued than I expected but it’s still very delicious. Overall, this beer is great. The biggest drawback for me is the price and availability. I’ve only come across the beer a handful of times and when I do it’s usually around $5 a bottle. Delicious, but not worth the $5 price tag to buy regularly.

Bottle. Hazy golden with lasting foam. Aroma is malt, banana and coriander. Taste is bitter with spices, malt, citrus and a fruits. Tart. A quite good witbier. Not like "the rest of them" and its mostly the bitterness and tartness witch is the difference.

Bijl (274) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2016
Goudgeel, troebel, volle witte schuimkraag, veel koolzuur zichtbaar. Aroma:  Tarwe, koriander, kruidig, banaan. Smaak: Tarwemouten, een citrus zuurtje, maar toch ook een zoete hint, koriander, kruidnagel, Belgische gist, banaan. Lichte bitter, lichte body, tikkeltje waterig. Afdronk is kruidig, licht zuur, fris en makkelijk drinkbaar. Helemaal niet gek hoor in dit najaarszonnetje.

The aroma is of wheat, some moisture and grass. Good taste of orange, some seasoning and sweetness. Wonderful bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Really good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle 0.33l. Hazy yellow body, medium white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander. Taste is slightly bitter, lightly sour, very slightly sweet. Coriander, wheat, citruses, lime, hint of flowers. Medium body, high carbonation.
Clear, but not so good as many craft witbiers.

Rating #2104- 2015.10.08 - Bottle for Beer School @7degrees. Beautiful foggy yellow unfiltered beer with a distinct and sweet citrus aroma. Taste is crisp, pleasant and refreshing. World Class.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
Deep cloudy straw color with a strong amount of activity. Extra frothy white 4 finger sparkling island head, lasting around 10 minutes, with a good amount of legs. Aromas of fresh flowers, yeasty spices, and lemony citrus. Flavors of lemon, roasted sweet grains, with a hint of honey and floral spices. Pleasant salivating sweetness with a strong sharp end. Slick medium body with a perfect amount of zesty carbonation. Light and short finish that lingers a little, ending with a coriander and citrus tongue feel, and faint banana yeast. Overall great quality craft. Quite delicious flavors with good balance and well intensified. Nice complexity and interpretation. Strong sharpness, well bodied, and super fresh.

Probablemente la mejor cerveza de trigo que he probado hasta ahora. El color es único, parece un zumo de piña turbio con capa de espuma blanca y persistente de más de dos dedos de grosor. Carbonatación a tope (las burbujas se pegan a las paredes y al fondo de la copa). El olor es punzante y super fresco. Plátano, levadura, trigo... Similar al de muchas cervezas de trigo pero con una frescura propia (no sé expresarlo de otra manera) y una pegada única en la nariz. El sabor es muy similar, pero según entra en boca hay una explosión de sabor que no se produce en la mayoría de cervezas de trigo. Cuerpo acuoso (con mucha presencia de la carbonatación) y final super limpio, fresco (una vez mas, no sé como expresarlo). Única y maravillosa.

Piwo metne w kolorze zoltym z obfita biala grubopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie cytryny, kolendra i banany. W smaku dodatkowo sa przyprawy, kwiaty i drozdze. Polslodkie z kwaskowa kontra, wysyceniem na srednim poziomie i minimalna goryczka na finiszu. Lekkie i orzezwiajace jak przystalo na piwo w tym stylu.
