COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloďdal 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

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2007
In short: Average witbier going in the too-clean lemonade direction
How: Bottle 750ml drank relatively fresh a few months back (backlog)
The look: Cloudy straw-yellow body with a small and quickly disappearing white head.
In long: Hay and straw. Lemon skin. Slightly watery with soft drink carbonation. Lemon skin flavour with a light bubblegum yeast presence. A little annoying flavour resembling paper. Salty and tart. Not much in the way of usual witbier spices such as coriander. Too light and too clean to amount to anything. Nothing bad really but this beer will stick to my memory like a post-it on an ice-cube.

I love Belgians (the people as well as the brew). White beers are my LEAST favorite however. Still better than 75% of white beers in the states. Nose of spice and citrus fruit.

Jerre (2800) - Waregem, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle, 25 cl. Cloudy pale yellow color, with a white head. Aroma fruity, spice, citrus. Thin to medium body. Taste is refreshing, citrus, coriander, malts. A very normal white beer.

downender (6722) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2007
750 ml bottle from ASDA. Pale yellow with a big off-white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus and grain. Flavour had plenty of lemon with more coriander and a slightly sour finish. Good.

Tejas (909) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Plenty drinkable. Looks good. Could use more flavor. Don’t pick up the advertised spices though. Ehhh, not bad but probably one and done.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Bottle. Hazy dark yellow with a thick foamy head. Looks like a good wit. Nose-soapy, heather, coriander, moldy, fusty. Taste-prickly CO2, thin, watery, coriander, light lemon juice, salt, good use the usual wit spices, light grapefruit, low esters, low phenols, does a good job of keeping the phenols and esters usually found in wits in check. Not as nasty as most wits.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Crystal clear and very pale with an active but quickly lost head. Herbal and fruity corriander aroma with notes of bubblegum, blueberry, lavender, wheat. Very light bodied, to the point of being watery. Effervescent and crisp on the palate. Mild and stale in flavor of washed out blueberry and corriander.

demitriustown (1112) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2007
750 ml bottle: Aroma is orange, coriander, clove, light wheat notes, lemon, and a tart sour aroma too. Appearance is almost grapefruit juice like cloudy straw color with a carbonated white head that diminishes into a soapy white film. Taste is quite carbonated on the tongue. Somewhat of a sour lemon taste, a cardboard taste to it. Somewhat of a flat tasting wit in my opinion. Palate has a lingering heavy dry cardboard taste sitting in your mouth. Overall, I didn’t this brew was any good at all. Did not like this. Boo.

Beerdedone (2877) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white fluffy head. Aroma of lemon, orange peel, coriander, and some spices. Flavor of wheat, lemon, some banana, citrus, and notes of spices with a crisp and dry finish

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Hazy straw color with decent head. Lemon on the nose, wheat and other citrus too. Flavor is much the same with some coriander as well. Nice on a warm fall day.
