COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Belgisk/tysk inpireret hvedeøl, der har det bedste med fra begge landes hvedeølstraditioner. Den er brygget med både hvede-, bygmalt, rå hvede og havregryn, der er med til at give den en dejlig fylde. Gæren er fra Bayern og tilfører lette banannoter, der understreger frugtigheden fra korrianderfrø og appelsinskaller. Eftersmagen er en smule kraftigere humlet end normalt for begge landes hvedeøl. En frugtig og frisk øl med mild maltsmag og en silkeblød mundfornemmelse fra havre og rå hvede.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2012
from Erzbierschof - hazy pale blond beer with a persistent white foam; coriander festival in the nose leaving not much place for some citric and orange peels notes; sticky and thin-bodied; velvety yet slightly acidic on the end; more heavy coriander presence in the aftertaste - for coriander geeks only

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
Pale hazy orange, small tight head. Initially citrussy, then wheaty and yeasty aroma. Finally, bananaey and very perfumey. Lively carbonation, slightly watery palate, but refreshing. Really is about half way between wit and a hefe. Unfortunately that means it’s lacking the body of a good hefe and the crispness of a good wit. Despite that, it’s a tasty summer brew, with a decent range to its flavours, even if there’s nothing new. (6:4:6:3:12=3.1)
Rerate: 330ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi) as Vaarwit - wtf - stop doing dodgy rebadges! That’s put me in a bad mood when drinking this, as I wouldn’t splash out Scandinavian beer prices for such a mediocre brew voluntarily. Aroma was duller, flavour was duller, palate was a little fuller, and overall I’m a little less impressed. (5+:4:5+:3+:10). Brewdog seem to have spoilt this one.

Benzai (8226) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2012
50cl bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy pale yellow color, medium sized white to off-white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell wheat, soapy, lightl banana. Taste wheat, again some banana flavors, sweetish, pear. Low to medium body, medium carbo.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2009
220ml from tap at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Fluffy white tophead. Misty, pale yellow body. Fine glass-lacing. Zestful spiciness in aroma and taste. Coriander, wheat, noble hops and sweet fruits can be spotted. Fresh, dry and smooth in the mouth. Gets quite sweet, but still a well blended summer drink (13.05.2009).

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2011
Dirty off-white head over fully hazy yellow beer with an orange/greenish sheen. Very fruity nose, banana and citrus, wheat & lactic. Liquorice, mint, citrus and fresh garden herbs. Bit medicinal in the aftertaste. Extremely refreshing, titillating light MF. Excellent, out-of-the-way, unique wheatbeer. Kudos to Christian and txs to J & C!

As Beer Here Vår Wit
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget, BB 12-01-12. Sampled on September 4, 2011
Hazy copper color, frizzy white head. Phenolic, Belgian yeast, some tin can and electrical wires, smoke scent, also some orange peel and sort of sweet. Acidic, spicy, phenolic, thin taste. Also yeast. Dry finish. Thin mouthfeel, some alcohol warming. Thin dry bitterness.
A far cry from what I had as Tia Loca on tap, too bad.

rosenbergh (6818) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 500 ml bottle. As Tia Loca. Finland.
Hazy pale yellow colour with medium white head. Citrus, wheat, yeast and spices in aroma. Some sweetness, bitterness, citrusy, wheaty, spices and yeasty in flavour. As described this is somewhere between German Weizen and Belgian Wit. As I’m big fan of Witbier I like this but...

330 ml bottle. As Vårwit brewed by BrewDog. Finland.
Hazy dark golden colour with small white head. Intriguing wheaty, yeasty aroma with some caramel, mild hoppiness and mild spices. Wheat, yeast, mild hops and some spices in very dry flavour. Still somewhere between Weizen and Witbier.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2011
33cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Labelled VarWit. Orangée, blanche. Arôme fruité léger, levure un peu orange, note de coriandre, et houblons sec, reste un peu en dessous pour ce style de blanche belge. En bouche, bière malté, note épice, coriandre, pelure orange avec un beau profile de levure le tout sur une fine amertume. Palais phénols, léger malt et épice sur la fin. Un peu déçu.
