willisread (2940) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy, beautiful muddled orange gold. Lemon, star anise, bubblegum and orange peel dominate the nose with a nice underlying Belgian yeast character. Creamy on the palate with lemon and muscat and some light coriander. Bitter orange zest on the finish. Wonderful witbier.

Jesper86 (59) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Beautiful white beer. Good complexity. Very elegant. Long finish. Smooth. Not overly citrus-like like some other whites. Cardamom, lime, orange blossom, coriander, celery. Hint of white chocolate, but then dry. Nice balance between acids, subtle but enough bitterness and subtle flavours that do have enough depth though.

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - JUL 28, 2016
Yellow dark orange something shady. initially invaded by tireless bubbles are keeping a remnant of foam. Loaded smell of coriander and orange juice without sugar levels and malt gives tropical aromas of sweet and acid mixture with a soft spicy touch. The flavor division plays a different style reference. More pronounced, consistent and acid, with a sweet orange base and malt is interrupted by notes of lemon, tropical fruits and soft notes of grapefruit and grass.

GoufCustom (1767) - HONG KONG - JUL 27, 2016

330ml bottle bought at Good Stuff in Yuen Long.

Looks: Cloudy, hazy pale straw golden colour with a thick ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 1 minute; Fair sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant malt, with very strong wheaty tartness, banana, light apple, strong orange peels, coriander, vanilla, cream, floral, sugar, spices, dough, strong Bel yeast, very light lemon and thin grass.

Taste: Close to light sweet light malt, with strong wheat, very strong tartness on the verge of acidic, strong orange peels, light coriander, strong carbo, floral, light molasses, earth, spices, light bread, strong yeast, lemon, moderate bitter hops and light strawy grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Slick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Light maltyness in a thick background. Very smooth and creamy. Lots of wheat with screaming tartness. Good orange peels and floral but light on coriander and sweetness. Spicy and yeasty with mild lemon and notable bitterness to round. Good!

Hoppiness: Floral, spices, very light lemon and thin grass in nose. Floral, earth, spices, lemon and strawy grass in taste; Bitterness is moderate for an lasting, mid to light astringent wheaty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Smooth and very easy to mouth. <P>Comments: This one feels stronger and bolder than Van Steenberges Celis White - better estery aroma, a lot creamier, stronger wheaty tartness, stronger orange peels and spices. A bit more sweetness will be perfect to its hoppiness. Quite nice for Summer!
