From the can. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin layer of foam. Big orange and coriander nose with some floral notes. Flavor is heavy on the coriander with a backing component of orange juice. Off sweet with spritzy carbonation. A bit too much coriander for my taste, but a very nice wit.

(Bottle) Good beer. Cloudy yellow colour, no head? Banana and coriander in the aroma. Lightly sweet with plesant and resfreshing lemon sourness in the finish. Full body and high carbonation. Refreshing wheat with touch of belgian wit.

Bottle, a gift from the great Travlr. Interesting to try a local Witbier, as it has been suggested (my friend Bartlebier) that my scepticism about the style could be due to the poor tolerance of these beers to long-distance travel. Well, this one is from Christchurch, right in my backyard, from one fantastic brewing house. And I still don’t like it that much. There’s a guy below who says that if you don’t like you shouldn’t rate, but I don’t think that is the rationale of this site, is it? The beer has that pale unhealthy look, with a tremendous white head, lasting for quite a while. I hate the word “retention”, as it sounds more to me as an obstetric term. This interesting beer is evidently spicy, with the aroma of my family’s chicken & pork marinade: red wine vinegar, garlic, chillies, lemon, olive oil and bay leaves. Later the aroma breaks up and a nicer lychee nose comes out. Very zesty on the taste, spicy, with a strange perfumed flavour of sour lemon cordial. Interesting, and not much different from the other whites I have tried before.

Draft at the Twisted Hop. Hazy pale yellow color. Aroma of lemon, banana. Taste has citrus and tropical bubblegum, scant spice. Decent.

I love traditional german wheat beers, but this tasted quite different, which is not a bad thing at all. This was citrussy & fruity which reminded of NZ hops with only a nod towards the banana style wheat bears. My summer beer cuppa ;)
