Can. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Citrus, spice, and pretty much a standard Wit.

350ml can bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Clear light golden yellow colour with no yeast sediments; Three-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Good sticky lacing with active carbonation; Aroma of light lager malt, with strong coriander, fair orange peels, wheat, floral, sugar, fair spices, strong bread, citrus and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of light malt, with strong wheat, light tartness, grain spirit, light coriander, light orange peels, light wet paper, floral, very light molasses, light spices, strong bread, light lemon and very light bitter grassy hops; Mid to light body. Slick and smooth palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness in a thick, slightly soapy background. Notable grain spirit presence, quite wheaty but not tart. Fair amount of coriander and spice but lesser orange peels. Fair sweetness, bready with thin lemon to round. Kinda okay… Hoppiness is floral, fair spices, citrus and light grass in nose. Floral, light spices, light lemon and very light grass in taste; Bitterness is light for an abrupt, low astringent bready finish; Quite dry after taste. Grainy boozy and quite easy to mouth.

Comments: Another Happoshu Witbier, with fairly decent spicy aroma, but taste is marred by wet paper and obvious garin spirits. Feels a bit too gooey and bready, more a lager than witbier. Okay to drink but fell far short of a decent Witbier. Once is enough.

Can. Decent aroma of coriander spice and orange citrus. Surprisingly well put together flavour of the same notes. Light-bodied and fizzy but with no detectable off flavours. A little lemon tang came through late. The peppery and spice finish gives it some wit-like authenticity. I had a few in a row offered to me at a party, quite refreshing and crushable.

Ritzn (1412) - GERMANY - AUG 11, 2016
Clear golden with fluffy white head. Aroma is some dust, melon, grassy stuff, the dust is quite subtle and doesnt ruin it. Taste is more dust, some sour paper and the normal lager bitterness. Finish is the same as the taste. Too little carbonation, not very fresh, not really drinkable due to the dusty character. Well it is not completely bad but not good either...

JaKeAFC (1127) - ITALY - JUL 24, 2016
35cl can. Light golden color, clear, disappointing enough! Big soapy white head, reducing. Aroma of grains, wheat, spices (coriander, orange peel), starch/chemical, light grass. Light body, watery texture. Sweetish taste. Seems to be a flavored lagher. Not bad itself but not really fitting the style.

pictoman (1129) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2016
Poured from 500mL can. Light citrus, wheat, and coriander. A little bit sweeter and perfumey. Not bad for a macro.

thellgren (1062) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2016
0.33 l can from a food store in Tokyo. Appearance is pale and clear with a big head. Taste is sweetish and malty. I can’t taste any of the usual spices. This tastes like session blond bier and not a very good one.

Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
Has the sweetness of a wit, light orangey taste, touch of coriander. Well, if there’s one style a macrobrewer can make decently it’s wit.

HuskerTan (2203) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Can. A- Coriander, cloves, subtle citrus, strong spice, wheat. A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Strong spice, coriander, clove, black pepper, subtle lemon, orange peel. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, unbalanced finish. O- Could have been worse but the spice was way too strong. Almost blocked out any citrus and made it too much to handle.

ekstedt (6786) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2015
