Hazy blond coloured beer with a little white head and almost no carbonation. Hoppy and fruity hinted aroma. Full palate. FInish is light herby and bitter sweet hinted.

Probably served this one too cold. Faint fruity yeast aroma. Hazy golden colour and good carbonation going on. Flavour is bitter, loads of hoppy bitterness. Not really special.

Bottle, bought @ Bier Tempel, Brussels.
Pale hazy golden with a medium, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma is fairly complex, roses, pepper, crisp malts, yeast, apple and peach. High carbonation, creamy yet somehow watery palate with some dryness. Flavour has mild maltiness, light nutty, some roses, white pepper. Fair lingering grassy bitterness in the end. Good beer overall.

jgb9348 (5124) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Hazy golden coloured body with a thin white head that fades fast. Aroma of nice yeast, honey, coriander seed, grass and a lot of flowers. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral taste with a good dose of malt to balance with a pleasant and surprisingly complex finish that shows alcohol, malt, sugars and a good yeastie note. Aftertaste shows a subdued finale with the coriander seed and yeast playing the largest parts, but the pleasantness of a floral finish with a touch of hops is nice. Overall, a very pleasant and enjoyable beer with good flavours throughout and a complexity to enjoy. To think that this is just a typical beer that you can find everyday and enjoy without question or savouring is amazing. I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle purchased at the Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 for €2,50 sampled at home in Washington on this side of the pond on 26-May-2011. Best by date of 16-June-2012 on cap.

Yellow coloured beer with a small white head. Not much aroma, slightly sweet. Sweet and yeasty flavour, very watery, no body. Drinkable (Bottle 33cl)

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2008
Pale yellowy Wit haze, white rim. Enticing sharp yeasty snout with an edge of sourness, banana esters, almost leafy coriander, biscuity pale malt, herbal hop, chick pea. Mouth silky, peppery, drying into a firm bittering hop finish. Yeasty, citrussy, hints of pine and antiseptic hop. Nice balance of spice, malt, hop and wheat like a hopped-up, more characterful Zot. Not bad.

yespr (36090) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy to cloudy orange with a diminishing white head. Aroma is mild yeasty and light caramel malty, classic Belgian. Medium sweet flavour yet dominated by yeast and caramel in a light way. Mild spice note into the finish. Lingering smooth yeasty and slight caramelish too.
