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

Drunk it as well from draft as wel from bottle. First look is more like a pils. A taste of soure still medium bodied,, makes this beer an unusual white beer

The 15.4 ounce bottle poured a slightly hazy straw colored beverage with a snowy white creamy smooth head that was completely lasting and left great lacing on the glass. The aroma was true to the style with dry sour fruity aromas. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a dry texture. The flavor starts out lightly sour and stays that way through the medium-long finish, mellowing as it ages on the tongue. The finish is dry, tart and refreshing with slight alcohol warmth.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2007
Pale cloudy lightyellow beer. Aromas of citrus-zest, coriander, oranges and yeast. Lots of coriander, sweetish, slightly acidic, citrussy taste and a bit bitter in the finish. Decent witbier, but a bit too spicy. Brewer, take it easy on the coriander!!

TheDog (525) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with fast disapearing head. Aroma of coriander and oranges. Too ordinary and boring.

hotstuff (4093) - Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2007
Corked bottle with a date of 08/08/09. Small white fizzy head that mostly diminished, fair amount of lacing, visible carbonation, cloudy, and a straw yellow hue. Nose was coriander, sweet, fruity, spicy, and oranges. Flavor was smooth, sweet, ornages and coriander. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel was mostly smooth with a slight tingliness and dry. Medium body. Decent brew, but there are better ones out there of this style.

Blanche de Namur 750ml bottle Brewed spring 06, whitened 04/07 Medium pour in a chalice. Poured a hazy golden yellow, with floaties, with a moderate fizzy somewhat diminishing white head. Smelt of moderate coriander, flowery wheat, lemons and light anise Taste was upfront moderate sour sweet and bitter lemon and white doughiness followed by a moderate yeasty dough and bitter spices on an average finish. Palate was light bodied, lively carbonated, slightly dry. Overall, a very refreshing Belgian white that satisfied very well. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2007
Yellow/orange body with creamy frothy white head. Big yeast nose. Must say how nice the lacing was. Taste is all fruit-yeast blend. Lots of carbination. This would have been great on a hot summer day. Thanks for the Mystery trade!

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2007
Strong fruity aroma shows big hints of lemon and maybe orange. Nice and hazy in the glass. In the mouth I found it refreshing and smooth, but slightly one shallow in flavor: the fruit seemed to have disappeared. The finish is somewhat ho-hum, this nothing really to say. A nice little white that shouldn’t be turned donw, but truly just another average beer in the bunch.
