boydmarq (63) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma is faint banana and clove. Taste is woody with a mildly sour aftertaste. Everything about this beer is subtle. Very drinkable, but not one I would knock myself out to try and find again.

Interesting.. especially as was told it was a lager! Pours pale hazy gold. Yeasty flavour, mild virus cutting through. Nice

dnicolaescu (2789) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 20, 2018
BOTTLE 33 CL. Cloudy straw, white head. Faint floral fruity aroma - roughly apricot and orange jam, some white bread too. Similar taste, no surprises. The regular witbier husky astringency instead of bitterness in the finish. Ok, not more.

beersandbass (34) - Saint-Amand-Montrond, FRANCE - JAN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Une bière blanche légère, avec de fines bulles et une mousse blanche et une mousse peu importante. Au nez on peu déceler des arômes fruitées d'agrumes et florales. En bouche, les saveurs d'agrumes et de houblons sont très présentes. Plutôt pas mal pour l'été.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 来自日本的白啤 带着明显的橘皮味 口感极清脆 小麦啤酒嘛 瓶底一如既往的酵母沉淀 国内经销的似乎是产自香港的版本 想去日本了 不知在当地水质下 口味会有怎样的变化

ladnewton (2075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2017
Bottle at home on 28th December 2017; received as a festive gift. Pours a dull hazy pale amber with any foam soon disappearing. Zesty fruits and spices in aroma, with orange peel dominant. Juicy, sweet and tangy fruits in-mouth, with fresh orange, touches of grassy hoppiness and a hint of black pepper. The orange dominates an otherwise hoppy and fruity finish. Full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. An interesting witbier.

3.4
anstei (2747) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 21, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Bottle at Nooch, Zurich. Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma is slight coriander and orange peel indeed, smooth spices. Body is medium, very smooth and softly oily, decent sweetness with herbs and spices, orange too. Not too extreme, rather balanced too, but also a bit low on flavours, still enjoyable to drink.

DijkBier (656) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2017
Bottle at home pours hazy pale yellow with small white head. Aroma is mainly wheaty malts and some spices. In the taste clear orange juice; medium sweet with citric elements. Rather strong carbo. It's an OK wheat beer, but not quite special and a little too much juice drink-like.

2.9
Turtles (3092) - 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.

3.7
Benters (143) - 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.

3.6
Davros IX (579) - 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.
