abemorsten (3650) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2017
Bottle from a small supermaket in Paddington, London. Misty golden body, small fizzy white head. Sweet caramel and banana smell and flavor. Whatever wit character it was brewed with is long gone. Not a great beer.

Some of the ’hard’ raters should really try this one from the tap. Just the right amount of citrus, not overbearing. Topped with an orange slice to enhance the aroma. Definitely a crafted ale. Smooth, Effective, and a personal go to favorite at local bars. Highly recommended.

tfontana (1039) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Hannaford. Appearance is cloudy dark yellow/orange with greenish tinge, fair sparkle, quickly disappearing ring of fizzy white head and no lacing. Aroma is wheat, coriander and mix of champagne- and cheesy yeast. Taste is wheat, coriander. Palate is smooth, medium bodied with thick texture, average-to-lively carbonation and finish as taste with a pasty mouthfeel. Overall, not a strong flavor and not very complex. Ho hum.

2.9
beskid (194) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2017
Had to try it as it was omnipresent in Sacramento. Sweet aroma with oranges, but not very pleasant. Taste is malts, orange, coriander, somehow artificial. Still better than expected.

2.4
Acaro (296) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 26, 2017
Aroma: Hay and cereals. Appearance: Gold color with hazy sparkling liquid and white frothy head. Taste: Medium bitterness with light sour notes. Palate: Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Long bitter finish. Overall: Not refreshing. No citrust touches or refreshing. Very strong features for a witbier.

1.8
jann3 (395) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Hazy golden with a small head. Aroma is malty and grainy with a hint of citrus and spices. Taste is sweetish and malty too with some fruits and faint touch of sourness at finish. Soft carbonation. Not among the best witbier I’ve tasted. (330ml bottle, BB 28.12.17)
