Cloudy golden yellow pour with a nice thick, fluffy white head. The perfect looking Witbier. Aroma is light and pleasant. Lemon zest, sweet dough, white pepper. Very refreshing taste. Slightly spicy on the front end, followed by oranges, honey, and coriander. Finish is dry and clean. Flavor is slightly more subdued than I expected but its still very delicious. Overall, this beer is great. The biggest drawback for me is the price and availability. Ive only come across the beer a handful of times and when I do its usually around $5 a bottle. Delicious, but not worth the $5 price tag to buy regularly.

JaKeAFC (1109) - ITALY - MAY 6, 2017
On tap @ il vecio portego. Pale yellow color light haze, short white head quickly dissipating, no lacing. Aroma is citrusy, lemon, orange, light spice, wheat, yeast. Taste sweetish, mild sour. Very strong carbonation, light body, short spiced finish. Quite disappointing honestly, maybe not served well though.

Echon (515) - rhus, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2017
Pale, cloudy amber. Wheat, citrus, and lightly spicy and fruity notes, on top of a dry, somewhat tart and refreshing taste, that finishes with low bitterness. Medium body. Overall, a fine witbier. Refreshing and thirst quenching.

Just realized this is a witbier. Therfore, likely one of the best in the world, from these nice abbey clergymen.
