Golden in colour and clear with good carbonation for a head that remains long into the drink. As with all of the Løwlander range, this is brewed with 'added extras', which they call botanicals. In this case, mango, cardamom and orange peel, the last of which really comes through on the nose and remains into the start of the drink. There is also an immediate but short hit of mango, which disappears to leave a hoppy finish, which combines with the cardamom, although we got hints of basil instead.
Sometimes when such ingredients go into a beer it feels unbalanced, but no so with this. It presents a really fresh, light orange taste which the cardamom balances out nicely. It is a just a superbly well-balanced, refreshing beer and tastes much less sweet than the ingredients might suggest.
For those that love the original Wit, this is a great follow-up. For those that didn’t, this is a more traditional beer.
