Pours a light hazy yellow. Aroma is of orange peel and other citrus fruits. Taste is watery with hint of citrus and very slight alcohol taste. After taste is strong coriander. Overall not my favorite pick.

On tap, at Belgian Beer Cafe in Riga. Hazy, light golden colour, as expected. The nose is also as expected, with the classic citrus-coriander complex and additional sweet wheat notes (although a classic Hoegaarden glass isn’t the optimal vessel for nosing). In the mouth it has the same medium to medium light body as the bottled version, but it has definitely more Brett (hay, leather, touch of farmyard) than the bottled version. This makes it more complex and interesting, while still being the nice, refreshing summer drink which is it’s strength.

Opaque, cloudy yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Very pleasing to the eye! No lacing. Sweet and sour comes through in the aroma. Lots of yeast and bread too. Coriander really comes out as the beer approaches room temperature. Spicy and crisp at the start. Lots of coriander in the middle. With a nice tart and spicy finish. Very highly carbonated like a sparkling wine. Could use a bit more in the body and mouthfeel but theflavors more than compensate.

Flaske. Lys gulaktig, uklar farge. Moderat karbonert med tynn skumtopp. Smaker hvete,sitrus, koriander,appelsinskall,hint av banan og kardemomme . En helt grei wit

Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Very pale straw-white coloured with a thick white head. It has a floral lemon, vanilla and yeasty flavour followed by earthy notes and orange on the smooth fruity finish. Very good.

Well, is not a bad beer, but it’s the ground zero of witbiers. No special flavours, easy to drink. So many better beers on the style
