COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (collodal 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

motthes (165) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Das Blanche de Namur Witbier der Brasserie Du Bocq aus Purnode in Belgien. 0,33L Flasche mit schlichtem Etikett. Zitronengelb im Glas, trb mit wuchtiger Schaumkrone. Zitronig frischer Antrunk, der wssrige Krper enthlt Orangen- und Koriandernoten, die sehr gut herausstechen, hefig wirkt es aber nicht. Hopfennoten sind minimal vorhanden. Ein gutes Sommergetrnk mit einem besonderen Geschmack, allerdings verstehe ich die Auszeichnungen nicht!

UPDATED: APR 22, 2017 Mętne, czuć pszenicę, dużo nut kolendrowych, goździka i gałki muszkatułowej, lekka kwaskowość pomarańczy i banan, oglnie czuć nuty i pszenicy belgijskiej i niemieckiem. Goryczka niska, bardzo lekkie i sesyjne piwo o fajnym aromacie. Mi osobiście smakuje.

Cristobal37 (1015) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 19, 2017
UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Textbook foggy ultra pale white yellow with perfect head. Big wheaty aroma with spicy yeast, coriander, citrus, really nice. Tart, wheaty, dry, light beer with a watery finish. Taste is not the best, too raw grain forward with little else. Too bad because it looks and smells awesome.

remerts2 (14) - LATVIA - APR 16, 2017
Blāvs, dzeltenīgā salmu krāsā. Aromāts kā kvieu aliem, ar banāniem un garvielām. Ķermenis vidējs, gara ļoti patīkama, ļoti dzerams alus. Jūtamas garvielas. Praktiski nav rūgtuma un nejūt arī apiņus. Ideāls vasaras dzēriens.

Acaro (120) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 9, 2017
Aroma: Citrus and herbs with hay notes. Appearance: Clear gold color with very cloudy liquid and rocky white head. Taste: Light sweet and sour notes and a medium bitter touch. Palate: Medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. Short astringent and bitter citrus finish. Overall: In general a good beer but it has a final astringent touch that kills a bit the mood. Short in the palate but leaves a pleasant memory. Very refreshing.
