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

Pours a hazy yellow color with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma shows notes of citrus fruit, orange peel, coriander, and some lemon zest. The flavor is much the same with the lemon zest and spices coming through with some tart flavors on the back end. Medium bodied with good carbonation and a fruit and spice finish. Maybe a little thin on the body and a touch acidic. Pretty decent for a witbier, but not my favorite of this style.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 15, 2008
750 bottle from Whole Foods La Jolla. Pours hazy whitish golden with a large and foamy white head that diminished rather quickly. Aroma of grainy wheat, citrus, floral notes and bready yeasts and alfalfa. Very much tart wheat and citrusy flavor, hints of spice and hops. Light to medium body and aggressive carbonation. Meh...

750 ml bottle. Hazy pale yellow color with a moderate head that fizzles down rather quickly. Pretty simple, citrus orange and coriander flavors, yeast and some spices hit the palate towards the back end. I didn’t pick up the licorice. A little watery and thin with a mild acidic/spitzy mouthfeel. Refreshing on a hot day but nothing too outstanding.

tlind2 (1239) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2008
Draught @ Kallion Poirotti, Helsinki. Cloudy yellow color, expansive white head. Citric aroma with wheaty notes. The wheat goes on to the taste, with some additional fruity notes -- very little banana. A very pleasant witbier.

Boutip (5031) - 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.
