Beautiful white persistent foam. This wit is inviting aroma of lime, wheat malt and other citrus. The taste is something peculiar to the type for which most wit has barely citrus like fruit flavor, featuring this wit also a delicate touch of honey and melon. Fruity overtone which imparts it with a lovely sweet filling. Incidentally it does not differ significantly from other Belgian wit, but the unexpected touch of fruit bearing it on a slightly higher level anyway. A lovely summer beer.

330 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with a dense off-white head. Nice, not very strong aroma of citric fruit, yeast and wheat. Flavor is nice and refreshing, Wheat, citric fruit, spices, yeast and rather light on the typical banana and coriander flavors. Medium body and OK aftertaste. A bit more citric fruity than expected, but very refreshing and pleasant.

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Dorada clara, bastante menos espuma que en lo habitual del estilo. Nada que ver con el estilo, en general. Aroma a sidra. Sabor realmente diferente, para educar al paladar. El mío no lo está y me parece desagradable, con un sabor agrio y rancio nada aprovechable y un tono acuoso. Realmente mala para mi gusto.

rdb84 (325) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2015
Typical Belgian White pour, hazy, lasting head. Refreshing aroma that reminds of Hoegaarden: fresh grains, hay, hint of lemon, yeast / cheese notes. Nice. First taste is slightly soapy, artificial, watery. Subsequently the fresh grains come through. However, a slightly artificial sweetness (white bread) remains in the development. Light body. Aftertaste is sweet, grains and lemon zest notes.

SkillsFactory (179) - ITALY - MAY 13, 2015
Dorata opalescente, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca non molto fine ma di buona persistenza. Aroma di limone, leggeri chiodi di garofano, leggermente acre. Stesse note al palato, molto carbonata, corpo leggerissimo, somiglia molto più ad un lambic che ad una blanche.
