It comes in an elegant bottle. There is a small booklet talking about the beer around the neck. I expected it to be fancy @ 9$ a bottle but it is Witbier, we will see how good of a witbier.
Pours darker than a normal witbier, but with the familiar giagantic foaming head. I like the darker color in comparison to most Hoegaarden-like Witbiers that are almost clear.
It smells more intense than a normal Wit, with orange and corriander being the obvious high points, but there is some other non orangey fruitiness too.
The taste is super fruity, tons of sugary orange in this one. There is also osme white peach in there too, it pairs nicely with food. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery but it finishes pretty dry.
This is an odd beer, it isn’t that bad, it isn’t worth the price but it isn’t a bad beer at all. I wasn’t expecting this high caliber brew for this brewery or this distinct of a brew.

Bottle. Golden/yellow hazy with a thin white head. Smells of banana, coriander and citrus. Taste is thin and watery with a lot of sweetness and a little to sour finish. Need some more balance. FlashParker (85) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011

Picked this up from the LCBO on a whim and have been converted to the cult of Spanish brew. Outstanding creamy head, gorgeous blonde pour. Coriander nose, orange peel. Sweet going down, very very smooth, fruity. Citrus, orange peel. Excellent bitterness on the backend. A shocker here; I love this one and would do it over and again. Nicely played!

Hedelmiä, appelsiinin kuorta, vehnää ja mausteita. Kevyt, kesäiseen käyttöön sopiva olut.

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a large white head. Decent lacing. Mild aroma of citrus, wheat and spice. Flavor is similar with a little bitterness. Nice easy to drink beer. For the cost it doesn’t deliver. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grainy and spicy, showing notes of hay, coriander, and apples. Flavor shows the same with hints of bread, orange peel, and a certain mineral quality. Overall body is moderate, creamy and finishes with light bitterness. bluejacket74 (1992) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2011
750 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden color with about an inch and a half frothy off-white head. Head retention is good and there’s a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells mostly like wheat/grain, along with some orange peel and a bit of coriander. The taste is just like the aroma, it tastes mostly like wheat/grain, along with some coriander and orange peel. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium and has high carbonation. Drinkability is OK, it’s not hard to drink. Not a bad brew overall, it was nice to try but I don’t think I would ever buy it again. RexTalionis (3752) - FINLAND - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Poured golden yellow in colour with white fluffy head.
Aroma is spices and citrus. Flavour is citrus and some sweet fruits and
in addition to that also some spices. Quite nice beer. ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 27, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Bottiglia. Classica blanche belga, molto aromatizzata, con nette note agrumate percepibili sia al naso che in bocca. Purtroppo la birra è assolutamente priva di personalità, moscia e davvero troppo troppo light.
