COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloïdal by cold). The cloudy appearance is created at low temperature but disappears when the beer gets warmer or when it is kept too long in the cold. Fine fruity with a scent of the used spice, coriander and bitter orange. Smooth beer, thirst-quenching but mild, slightly acidulous, powdery consistency on the tongue, not bitter

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2017 Aroma is citrus, lemon, a little note of tropical fruit(lychee, mango)but flavor is even more flat than i expected. Aftertaste is very clean. Good for summer.

25/08/2017 - bottle @ La Reine Blanche. Hazy pale yellow with nice creamy white head. Nose is grainy, fruity, spices, some yeast. Taste is refreshing, grains, low sourness, citrus, spices. One of the best witbiers I had lately. Nicely balanced but tempting enough.

Mild, yet tasty, almost sweet but with a hint of lemon (thus no lemon needs to be added, like some witbeers are served with). The rich taste and aroma make it my favorite Belgian style wheat beer (witbier). It tastes much better from the larger bottles with cork.

Pleasant fruity aroma with tangerine notes, apricot and tropical fruit; Light mineral note. The palate is light and fresh with a lively carbonation. Good blanche to drink in the hot summer afternoons.

330ml bottle from Home Bargains shop:
This one was a beer that got off to quite a bad start with far too much foam when I slowly started to pour it, there was a lot of visible carbonation in the body of the beer as it sat there too. Once I started getting into the beer there wasn’t a whole lot going on really, the nose in particular was quite light & the taste wasn’t much better with only some faint citrus coming through with the usual wheat & coriander; a poor effort & a witbier to avoid.

Barwa jasnosłomkowo-mleczna, zmętniona. Piana obfita, wysoka na dwa palce, drobnopęcherzykowa, koloru białego. Opadając zdobi szkło, do końca pozostaje cienkim, poszarpanym kożuszkiem. Lacing niski. Aromat delikatny - cytrusowy, dość wyraźny zapach kolendry, lekkie nuty maślane, a w tle nuty kwiatowo-miodowe i korzenne (imbir). Smak słodko-kwaśny, lekko słonawy, lekko szczypie w język, w tle majaczy lekkie masełko. Na finiszu lekka goryczka cytrusowo-pestkowa. Warka 25.05.2017

Pours murky blond from the bottle. The big foamy white head slowly settles. Aroma of clove, orange juice, coriander. Taste is lightly sweet with an underlying tartness that strengthens in the finish. Body stays lightish, carbonation is prickly. Overall a nice example of the style. Refreshing.

Wow. Appearance reminds me a lemonade "Buratino" - Fanta lemon colour. Fluffy, very stable and quite high foam, opaque enough. Strange, not typical for Weizen taste - coriander, lemon, orange maybe some lemonade. Light flower taste and coriander in the finish, average carbonation in palate, creamy texture. Nice to try, especially in summer.

Hazy light yellow. Coriander, cumin, wheat, citrus, dust. Watery with wheat, citrus and week herbs. Light body and wheaty finish.. Ok for hot summer days.
