Thisis12ptfont (1225) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Aroma of vanilla and coriander. Color is yellow/gold with a two-finger foam. Very nicely blended flavors of biscuit, coriander, orange and wheat. Lingering sugary caramel on the finish. Overall, this is a delicious and full flavored brew from Japan. Well done!

Turtles (3016) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2017
Bottled @ Lokal, Stockholm. Hazy straw golden, small white head, poor lacing. Citrus and orange aroma a lot of bread, not too much else going on. Fairly crisp feel, light and smooth. Wheat malty taste, citrus, orange and mild herbal. Dry finish.

Benters (100) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Pours a hazy light golden colour with average carbonation. Aroma is of oranges, orange juice and spices including coriander. Taste is crisp, zesty, fruity and refreshing with hints of spice. Orange and citrus flavours dominate. A nice, refreshing Belgian-style witbier with a twist.

Davros IX (534) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Can at home in Beer Hawk advent calendar. It looked good in the glass and the flavour was crisp and sharp, with an inherent spiciness as it went down. It was very pleasant with a pizza.

sam_uk93 (72) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Pours a murky pale amber. Aroma is very subtle, some banana, cinnamon. Taste is cinnamon sweetness up front, leading to a subtle malty middle with some banana, spice, finishes with a long, lingering typical belgian yeast flavour with some very slight bitterness. Medium to high carbonation, medium bodied. Good.

Hazy pale yellow colour with massive white foam. Aromas are sweet of milk candy, rice, banana peel and rice crispies. Palate, medium to full body with smooth texture leaving slight sweet finish. Taste, sweet of milky oats, slight notes of orange and cereals. Overall, not bad, nice easy going round bodied smooth milky beer.

VueltaBirrista (156) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2017
Pajiza y algo turbia y con partículas de levadura en suspensión, genera una abundante corona de espuma blanca, conforme a las tradicionales White belgas.

Es difícil explicar lo suave y rica que está… y lo bien que entra. Así que os haréis una idea más aproximada sobre ella si os digo que está elaborada con trigo en copos, cilantro, nuez moscada y jugo y corteza de naranja.
Huele a frutas tropicales y trigo y lógicamente a pura naranja. En boca tiene cuerpo medio, está bien carbonatada y es amable y refrescante. Mezcla muy sutilmente las especias, el cítrico y el ácido de la levadura, además de un ligero toque floral y amargo del lúpulo. En resumen, una experiencia que merece la pena vivir.

Surprisingly pleasant. Never had this beer before but at our recent sushi night out I gave it a try, not expecting much. Quite pleasant in the neighborhood of Blue Moon but a touch drier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
