Livendadream (218) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Btl pours a cloudy light milky straw color. Big white head fades fast leaving no lace on glass. Aromas of ripe banana,orange,spice and wheat grains. Tastes of citrus,bread, and white pepper. Light body, soft yet watery mouthfeel, under carbonated, and a tart finish. I was really hoping this beer would be fantastic. Unfortunately it is just average. Hoegaarden and Celis white are much better. This beer was close to expiring. Maybe it was better when fresh.

Bottle. Hazy pale yellow with big white head with some lacing. Aroma of yeast, banana and some citrus. Watery texture and taste of citrus, yeast and hints of banana. Im not a big fan of the banana taste in this one.

17/X/16 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home, BB: 5/VI/18 (2016-1225)

Note: Im pretty sure my rating must either have been lost before I entered it, or was deleted by accident, as I have had this beer numerous times before. Anyway, a revisit of a good ol classic.
Pretty hazy pale yellowish beer, big creamy white head, very stable, bit adhesive, some lacing in the glass. Aroma: yeasty, dry, citrus, peppery, coriander, bit sweet, hint of banana. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: banana, bit yeasty, grains, soft acidity, some citrus, bit grassy, apples. Aftertaste: pretty bitter and hoppy touch, banana peel, quite dry, coriander, little peppery, very good witbier!
