yngwie (13844) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. A dense, finger-thick white head forms over a hazy pale yellow body. The aroma has quite a lot of coriander, some lemon and grass, and pale malts in the back. Itís rather thin on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Quite dry, with flavors of coriander seeds, hay, lemon, some orange zest hints and pale malts. A little bitterness towards the finish. Nothing extraordinary going on here, but itís a decent beer anyway. 141025

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Murky sandy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is pretty nice, orange, vanilla, lemons, coriander. Flavour is a bit thin for me, lemon, orange, banana, sherbert. Itís ok but mouthfeel is almost watery.

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2013
From Crosspoint. Pale yellowy haze topped with a subsiding billow of suds. Huge perfumed coriander, orange peel, lemon curd and citrus herb aroma. Slick and lively with a juicy lemon sherbet and lemongrass-like citrus character. Coriandered to death. Nose slightly hop-like. Just my kind of thing.

johndoughty (4004) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, Slightly cloudy with a small head. Lovely spicey flavour with a fruity finnish. Much more complex than most wheat beers. In fact its quite a gem.

Hanoi (425) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Nose is bubblegum, some banana and sherbert. Taste is banana, cloves a touch of pepper to finish. The finish leaves a papery dry taste in the mouth which is not appealing. An OK beer, typically bland from huygenbrewery

SarkyNorthener (2141) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle. Pale gold colour, hazy with no head. Aroma of herbs. Taste is mild orange and herbs. Not a bad belgian wheat beer, just weak compared to others.
