Pours a hazy golden yellow with small white head. Smell is very unique; predominantly floral and spicy (most notably coriander) with a bit of citrus (presumably from the orange). As it warms, a bit of honey comes out. Taste follows smell with an additional peppery flavor. Light body with medium carbonation. JaBier (8112) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a huge white head. Aroma is coriander, malt and light hops with a bit of a citrus note. Orange and coriander flavor with some malty sweetness and a crisp finish. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2010
This hazy gold pour has a very fruity aroma. Notes of wheat, sugar, and sweet fruit with a tangy finish. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Appearance: hazy blood orange with an off-white head which hangs around as a decent blanket. Swirls with bubbly blotches with a nice ring around the collar.

Nose: whoa. Orange and zesty with lots of zing in the back; take orange peel, twist, add spice, twist some more. Ginger, cumin, and cardamom. Hay and must/dust. Bit tropical with an exotic essence of tropical fruits hanging from trees just out of hands reach. Kiwi skins.
Palate: spiced, tart, and tingly in the back; tickles and teases while bringing an instant smile to my face. Spice abounds, infusing each quaff with ginger, cumin, and a dash of cardamom. Ginger is most prevalent as raw fresh ginger root shaved. Orange rind, pineapple and kiwi. Lemon ice. The spice lingers long in my breath after each quaff. Lemon adds to the tart tingles along sides of cheeks.
Final Thoughts: tasteful and intriguing, I really dug this Japanese take on a classic Belgian wit beer. A merging of two worlds I was more than happy to sup and would happily sup again.
pours hazy golden to orange. sour and acidic. bitter lemon. too much citrus for my taste.

Draft at Beer Belly (Osaka). Coriander is there, but also something that is savoury but I cant quite finger. After some contemptation, I like it! Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2010
