3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty good stuff with soft spice and citrus and rounded sweet fruit (baked apple, pear.) I kept the bottle in the cellar so it’s clear and dark amber with minimal head. Has developed some interesting wax candy flavors.

Nice hazy amber colour with a white head. Smell is spices and the taste has an orange peel feeling.

Bottle from Humulus et Fermentum, Heisdorf, Lux. Pours bright amber with a big white head - as one would expect from the description. Medium high carb, Lots of wit character and fruit to the aroma, herbs and cream soda. Medium mouthfeel, lots of fizz. Herbal coriander flavour, with some orange, lemon, and classic wit yeast character. Very drinkable for all that too.

Erg lekker witbier. Heeft een volle romige schuimkraag. Ruikt licht naar sinasappels en bitter. Volle smaak. Jammer dat het zo moeilijk te krijgen is !

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a blonde color and a large white head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma is fruity, with tones of citrus and a lot of herbs are also noticable, like coriander and pepper. A little spring blossom is also recognizable. The taste starts a little dry and bitter to end in a spicy and refreshing end. A nice blanche, not comparable to the others. I liked it.

Light amber hazy with medium bubbly off-white head. Wit taste with some floverly notess, some overall sweetness, carbonation and touch of remaining bitterness. A bit watery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from St. Veronus. Deep brown/orange body with a thick frothy head. Yeast character is present with some coriander on the aroma. The bottle says Ginger is used in the process, but I can’t find it in the tasting. Medium bodied with a nice smooth lingering finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pours a cloudy beige color which is darker than other witbiers I’ve had. Head is big and creamy when poured. The retention is good. Never disappears completely. No lacings left
S: Smell is spicy (pepper and coriander mainly), sweet and citric. The Belgian yeasts are quite present (which is a "Des Rocs" trademark for me). When shook in the nose, you can also feel wheat, fruits, herbs and honey
T: Wheat. A bit sweet. Dry citric hops. Yeasts. Spices (pepper and coriander). The end is dry, citric and bitter
M: Medium and creamy body. Reasonable carbonation. Dry bitter aftertaste
O: Great beer. No (bad) surprise

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Yeasty nose, fruity, bread, citrus, and orange zest. Hazy light straw color, thin head, and good lacing. Light lemony initial, creamy wheat, a bit of spice, and some alc. warmth. Thin-medium body, very smooth. Very nice. A wit with more depth and punch than usual.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Noses of subtle wheat, cereal, light coriander whilst offering a soft fluffy white head and a golden opalescent colour. Fresh, light carbonated, good lacing and offers nice flavours of cereal, light spices. Very harmonic with a light-medium body with some sweetness to it. The finish is soft. A very interesting blanche taking on the task of bridgeing between belgian blanche and german Hefeweizen.
