COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloïdal by cold). The cloudy appearance is created at low temperature but disappears when the beer gets warmer or when it is kept too long in the cold. Fine fruity with a scent of the used spice, coriander and bitter orange. Smooth beer, thirst-quenching but mild, slightly acidulous, powdery consistency on the tongue, not bitter

Cloudy yellow pour with light white head that quickly disappears. Citrus notes are the overwhelming note in the aroma, taste and palate. Nothing really special here...just a very drinkable beer.

Pale yellow color with nice white head. Fruity aroma. Every time you can feel different taste, different spices. Also can feel yeast. Nice finish. Good!

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 28, 2009
Pours with a crazy head, even into a chalice, Though it’s a nice bright yellow. Aromas of citrus, a little bitterness. Need to wait for the head to settle down to actually take a sip. Nice mouthfeel, some tastes of wheat, citrus, a slight hint of detergent in there too. Some other spices that make the taste almost....festive. I guess it’s alright, it’s almost like drinking perfume though.

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2009
Hazy pale yellow with a lasting white head. Aroma has fruity orange, wheat and a hint of spice. Dry and grainy wheat flavour with orange and spices mostly in the finish. An alright wit, but nothing special.

Pinball (11055) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
25cl bottle from den belgiske ølbutik, helsinge. cloudy yellow, small thick smooth white head. very nice spicy, citrussy, slight peachy refreshing aroma, also some sweetness in there (powdered sugar). flavor is quite dry, a bit yeasty, peachy, slight citrus, slight spices, stronger coriander note. palate is well carbonated, a little too bubbly i think. overall a nice dry one, but a little too sweet and skunky, as well as a little too agressively carbonated/ too bubbly.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2009
Pours with a large white frothy lasting head and a cloudy straw yellow colour. Coriander and orange peel and floral notes evident in the taste. Carbonation gives a pleasant mouthfeel. Delightful.

JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 Fruity aroma, lovely whitey/yellow colour, fine head. More bitter than Hoegarden, orangy, fruity. Refreshing palate, sparkling, thin. Great beer. Wife still prefers Hoegarden for refreshment, since Namur is a more complex beer, with a little more bitterness. Purchased in New York

Bottle. Purchased as ’Tesco’s Finest Belgian Wheat’ but ratebeer says this is the brewer. Cloudy straw apperance, bright white head that stays around for a bit and gives some nice lace. Aroma is coriander with a bit of an artificial tinge. Body is medium thin. Overall, not quite the complexity I like in a Wit,but nearly there.

Bosskie (509) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Fine white beer with a good balance between sweet and sour. The typical white beer wheat/koriander taste is a little bit chemical; hints of blood oranges. Leaves a bit of a nasty taste behind. Quite smooth. OK beer as long as you don’t have too many.
