MarkoNm (2588) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 6, 2017
Very hazy orangey golden color, topped with a medium large white head, frothy and immediately gone. Fresh and spicy aroma with some ripe bananas in addition and some fruity presence. Sweet, juicy start, spicy presence later on, some bitterness present. Very sparkly body, slight peppery finish. Light. Not bad, a bit different. Fresh but has a bit too fluffy, juicy feel.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a clear bright gold color with a small white head. The aroma is mild and is mostly light hops and some fruit. The taste is a very nice blend of fruit and spice.

Mediocre Witbier, drinkable though. Nothing special, but no major flaws detected.

Cybion (170) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours mildly hazy yellow/straw No Visible carb, head dissipates quickly. Looks like pineapple juice. Nose is sweet and fruity/juicy, with orange, lemon, light pineapple, touch of coriander, lots of spice spice, almond/marzipan. Taste is spicy and sweet, starting out with citrus, orange, blood orange perhaps, grapefruit, spice (unsure which), leading on to some spicy bread in the middle with the long, dry finish comprising mild coriander, clove, and Belgian yeast. Traces of herbal hops and bitterness throughout. Body is light-medium, texture is somewhat thin but not too watery, carbonation is mild but noticeable. Interesting stuff, not quite what I expected from a wit.

Maris (1450) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 31/12/2016. Pours a milky straw colour with little head. Has a quite odd, slightly off, spicy aroma. Taste wise, its also unusual, with some sharp orange, coriander and nutmeg. Bugger all bitterness is present, which is not entirely surprising. Light bodies with moderate to average carbonation. Just didnt work for me on any level.
