En la decantación desarrolla una abundante espuma blanca, aireada y algo efímera, que termina por formar una delgada lámina de color blanco lechoso. La cerveza es turbia de color acerado ambarino. Carbónico de burbuja muy pequeña y desprendimiento regular y lento. Nariz muy fragante. Aparecen olores de cítricos como piel de naranja y pomelo, en primer término, y cereal crudo detrás. La boca es muy cremosa. El carbónico finísimo desarrolla una patina cosquilleante sobre la lengua. Fresca, de paso fácil, cuerpo leve y final corto, con recuerdos ácidos y amargos ligeros. Los aromas en boca son los de la nariz más algún matiz especiado. Se trata de una cerveza de abadía con algo de la acidez característica de las de trigo, con una nariz intensa y una boca leve pero equilibrada.

CaptainTilven (109) - Nancy, FRANCE - APR 15, 2016
Nice golden yellow, opaque, body headed by a very fine white foam, not abundant yet persistent. Aroma of coriander, fresh herb, sandwich bread. Taste of light agrums, coriander; a lot of soothness structured by a very delicate bitterness; wheat, vegetal. All that develops as temperature is rising. A hint of sourness.

Grisza77 (438) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 14, 2016
Złote, mętne piwo o średniej pianie, która po dłuższej chwili redukuje się do zera. Aromat owocowo-przyprawowy, słodki, czuć pomarańcze, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku owocowe, pomarańczowe, lekko słodkie i lekko kwaskowe oraz przyprawowe. Goryczka niby niska, ale wyraźnie zaznaczona. Ogólnie mistrzowskie piwo, mega owocowe z wyraźną nutą przypraw, orzeźwiające i pijalne, chyba najlepszy witbier jaki dotychczas piłem.

It pours murky ochre with golden highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: banana, bubblegum, and sourdough. The taste is medium sour that finishes medium dry; there are notes of: banana, cracked wheat, and sourdough starter. The palate is medium bodied with medium carbonation, and a creamy mouthfeel; it has a medium finish. Overall, it’s refreshing, yet complex.
