Yellow dark orange something shady. initially invaded by tireless bubbles are keeping a remnant of foam. Loaded smell of coriander and orange juice without sugar levels and malt gives tropical aromas of sweet and acid mixture with a soft spicy touch. The flavor division plays a different style reference. More pronounced, consistent and acid, with a sweet orange base and malt is interrupted by notes of lemon, tropical fruits and soft notes of grapefruit and grass.

330ml bottle bought at Good Stuff in Yuen Long.

Looks: Cloudy, hazy pale straw golden colour with a thick ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 1 minute; Fair sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant malt, with very strong wheaty tartness, banana, light apple, strong orange peels, coriander, vanilla, cream, floral, sugar, spices, dough, strong Bel yeast, very light lemon and thin grass.

Taste: Close to light sweet light malt, with strong wheat, very strong tartness on the verge of acidic, strong orange peels, light coriander, strong carbo, floral, light molasses, earth, spices, light bread, strong yeast, lemon, moderate bitter hops and light strawy grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Slick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Light maltyness in a thick background. Very smooth and creamy. Lots of wheat with screaming tartness. Good orange peels and floral but light on coriander and sweetness. Spicy and yeasty with mild lemon and notable bitterness to round. Good!

Hoppiness: Floral, spices, very light lemon and thin grass in nose. Floral, earth, spices, lemon and strawy grass in taste; Bitterness is moderate for an lasting, mid to light astringent wheaty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Smooth and very easy to mouth. <P>Comments: This one feels stronger and bolder than Van Steenberge’s Celis White - better estery aroma, a lot creamier, stronger wheaty tartness, stronger orange peels and spices. A bit more sweetness will be perfect to its hoppiness. Quite nice for Summer!

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.

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 (99) - 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.

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