Bottle 750ml in Tolosa. Very nice in the nose. Aromas of caramel, with hints of dough, and citrus. Taste is sweet, with a touch of sourness. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head. mcnealc31 (255) - Elida, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2011
The beer itself looks like a standard Witbier, pale gold color, astonishingly clear, with a fluffy white head. It’s actually kind of fun to watch the bubbles race to the top. Smells of tangerine and wheat.The flavor is quite complex. Sweet grapes and lots of straw at first, leading to apricots and coriander. Very smooth. A tinge of anise in the finish.
As a witbier, it’s very good, but not quite great. Admittedly, I am not enjoying this as suggested; with food.
However, I think the concept is a bit too pretentious for me. Developed by sommeliers and a chef? It should be served in wine glasses and kept in a chilled bucket? Here’s how I’m interpreting all this. "Beer isn’t as good as classy and refined as wine, so we’re going to make one that’s a close to a wine as possible, but still technically a beer." kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2011
Light color, bit unclear, has no head but bubbles are big. Smells fresh and fruity. First taste has citrus. Tiny bit sourness comes later. There is a bit of grass & flower aromas. Strange beer, tastes a bit like wheat without being it, looks like trippel but isn’t that strong and disappointing as many lagers what comes to richness of aroma. At least this is easy to drink due the flatness. I guess that is a good thing. laiti (8481) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2011
75 cl bottle, rated on 21.09.2009jonas (7588) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2011
Murky yellow colour. Aroma is close to home-made mead and rather thin. Flavour is light, but one can still detect the familiar wit elements: coriander, citrus and some spices.
Bottle, uuuuuh fancy. Perfumed light dusty aroma. Cloudy pale yellow, lacing white head. Citric and light spicy (clove,coriander) notes on a light body. Sparkly mouthfeel, fresh, summery. Pleasant

A hazy orange beer with a frothy white head. Aroma is yeasty, citrus notes. Taste is malty, grainy ann wheat, notes of spices. Sweet finish crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Poured a nice clear golden color with a thin white head. Head had no retention and lace was minimal. Carbonation was moderate to heavy. Aroma had mild notes of citrus, spice, and some light banana. Flavor had good spice notes and the banana notes came out more then the aroma let on. A nice crisp finish. Very refreshing. Slightly disappointed with the appearance, but overall a decent beer.

Had a bottle to myself. Typically, I am not a fan of witbiers. This was surprisingly pleasant, albeit too light of a mouthfeel for my taste. ElDesmadre (3627) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 26, 2011
Bottle. The packaging couldn’t be more elegant. The head though is scarce and unusually weak for a witbier. The aroma is of white grapes, coriander, lemon, yeast and orange, mixed with a lagerish barley maltiness. Refreshing spicy-fruity taste with some liquorice in the finish that makes it interesting and worthwhile. As this should accompany food, it is not overbearingly aromatic but everything in it is in the right place. JoePeesie (925) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Pours a golden yellow with a fizzy white head that fades fast leaving a nice lacing. Nose is of hay and barn yard. Taste is crisp, dry, citrus and floral. Enjoying this beer more than I expected I would. Would definitely drink again.
