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

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy yellow color ale with some white haze and a small foamy head with good retention but no lacing. Aroma of medium wheat malt with some light coriander. Taste is also dominated by some nice wheat malt notes with some coriander and orange notes. Body is too thin and watery and carbonation is a bit low for the style. More spices and a bigger malt profile would have increase flavour profile. I guess this is OK for the style but I have definitely tasted better.

thewolf (11234) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Bjergtrolden, Roskilde.
Pours very pale, hazy yellow with a medium, frithy, white head. Aroma is wonderfully spicy, lots of fresh coriander, light citric and good graininess. A bit light mouthfeel. Flavour is again based more on the spices than the yeast - unlike many other wits. A bit milky with a light graininess. LIght sweetness.

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle... Hazy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. Yeasty, breadsy aroma with a soapy essence and equal dashes of spices and herbs. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Tart, with low sweetness and low bitterness. Terrifically balanced and refreshing. Short, crisp, lightly acidic finish.

bleeng (1543) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2008
750 bottle. Hazy yellow at first, then very milky and cloudy on the last pour with the yeast. Small head. Nose of citrus, lemon, tartness. Fluffy, carbonated body. Light body and flavors. A bit tart, tangy, lemony but nothing that really stands out. A good summer beer but a bit lacking overall on flavor.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Very floral, citrusy, with a heavy dose of corriander on the nose. Pours a very cloudy white with a thick white head. Lots of corriander with citrus, wheaty, with a slight sour citrus finish. A lot of sweet citrus flavor which i like in a wit. Very refreshing here in the Fl heat!
