Westkyoto77 (636) - Kyoto, - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle. Poured a cloudy bright yellow with a tasty-looking medium head. Beautiful aromas of orange peel and coriander, with a tough of nutmeg just as advertised. Super elegant body- refined and balanced, yet quite juicy and refreshing. These guys really know their stuff. Classy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle at home. First one got stole, so had to go back for a replacement. And glad I did this is good. Pour is hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Nice witbier nose with spices and fruit (oranges). A little more hops to it than some others - citrus peel, grass. Crisp, zesty finish. Nice.

(bottle) hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. strange aroma of green bell peppers, brown sugar and lime juice, slightly perfumed, with a touch of sourdough and thyme. flavour is mostly pale malts and stale black tea, rather leafy, with some more lemons, pizza dough, mouldy peaches and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation. just ok.

Cloudy lemon yellow with no head and a lot of particulate matter. Strong aroma of something I couldn't place, similarly strong flavor. And then my husband said "I can really taste the nutmeg" and I was like Ohhhh, yeah, that's definitely nutmeg. It's all you can taste, and it leaves a tingle in the mouth. It's an interesting beer.

Alebarasi (150) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - SEP 13, 2017
Hazy golden yellow color with a short lasting white head and a lot of yeast particles. Medium body, soft carbonation, no lacing. Floral aroma of citruses and their zest, coriander, honey, wheat, lychee, tropical fruits, bubblegum, yeast and cider-like aromas. Kind of a bland taste of oranges, sparkling wine, wheat, straw and herbs. Notable tartness. A bit watery - soda-alike brew. Easily drinkable and refreshing.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (203) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 22, 2017
intense, weird, experimental white beer. floral, fruity, almost perfumy on the nose, and a bizarre light citrus zing on the palate. texture is unusual and the taste is far more complex than i can construe using the descriptors available here lol. piles of belgian-looking yeast floating around which is almost impossible not to disturb. good luck not getting it in the glass! bizarre drink, glad i tried it, unsure if i would buy another but would be interested in seeing a draught version.

Smell is sort of like a solvent but light and not harsh....lemony I guess....quite pungent though...smooth and mostly malty taste...low carbonation....at flying saucer for trivia with crew....team welcome to thunderdome
