rumore (868) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 16, 2017
From 33cl bottle, at Nud e Crud, Rimini, Italy. Pours pale yellow with white fine head. Aroma is citrus/orange, esters from typical Belgian beer quite noticeable. Body is light and medium carbonation. Taste is tendentially sweet, with some citrusy feeling evident. Finish is short and pleasant.

Hazy, very pale yellow pour with white head. Light aroma of wheat malts, fruity. Taste is same, light citrus; medium sweet and little bitter. Very low carbonation. This combination makes it actually somewhat like Seven-Up. I miss CO2, bitterness.

Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is sweetish wheat malt, spicy yeast, spices, citrussy notes with lemon. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and only lightly bitter. Body is light and a bit weak. Okay spicy Wit, though nothing to write home about.

Bottle @ Thomas W. thanks. Lasting but small white head. Very clowdy yellow color. Fine aroma of fresh cut dandelions. Typical belgian Witt taste and no sweetness. Refreshing summer beer.
