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

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Pours a bubbly hazy light straw golden color, with a medium white head. Definate spice, with the corriander very present, as well as some of the anise, citrus peel, and a light biscuity sweet malt. Heavily carbonated, and very heavily spiced. I understand using the Corriander and licorice, but this is a little extreme. It’s like when you go to use a salt shaker and dump way too much on your food. The food might be fantastic, but the salt covers most of it up.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle -- Probably my least favourite beer style in the world, but here goes... A slightly cloudy weak yellow with abundant carbonation and a huge sudsy white head with incredible retention that actually gets in the way of the beer. Crisp aroma of citrus. Quite creamy palate. Flavour has banana and more sour citrus. Perhaps there’s a bit of coriander in there too, but not nearly as prominant as in other brands. Nice fruity aftertaste. Not a bad beer, considering, but ridiculously expensive in Oz.

Botttle. Have had several of these with moderate to medium expectations, which it exceeded. Pours a cloudy gold, can taste the coraiander but a good balance. Recommended.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUL 6, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 buona blanche anche se - a quanto pare - disdegnata dai più; comprata da Ciobì, pagata 3.50, ma già bevuta al Corsaro Nero un paio di sere prima, accompagnata a panino con bresaola grana e olio. Bevuta anche alla spina come aperitivo a Camogli di recente, eccellente per combattere la calura.

The pour reveals a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium white head that leaves average lacing on the glass. The aroma is dominated by the adequate fruity esters, banana and citrus, there are mild spices in there but the yeast is not present. The flavor has a competent blend of banana, citrus and coriander, again the yeast isn’t detected, also the tart freshness of wheat is present but mild. The body has a light to medium thickness with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation. A competent and adequate witbier but not one that I would buy again.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Hazy off-yellow pour with 1-finger white head. Aroma is orange zesty, spicy, with coriander and white pepper notes. The palate is medium to light, spritzy, with flavors of wheaty malt, spicy hops, coriander, orange zest, and white pepper.

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Sampled as Tesco ’Finest’ Belgian Wheat Beer. Pale, unmalted haze with a thick creamy collar of froth that persists well. Perfumey nose with a sickly waft of orange, honey and coriander sweetness. There’s some serious poetic license being taken here. This tastes like flat low cal Lilt, with an added tang of molten plastic and alcohol. If you’ve ever accidentally frozen a Wit and tried to drink the liquid left swilling around the ice (surely we’ve all been there??), it sort of reminds me of that. Flat, stale, tropically fruity and nastily alcoholic. Not a Wit I’ll be returning to in a hurry.

Very perfumed, highly corriander flavour and aroma. Unmalted wheaty body, but floral side dominates.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2007
750ml bottle. Definite coriander in the aroma with a bitterish citrus taste. Cloudy and milky with some tan chunks. Refreshing with a lemony finish.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 29, 2007
Bottled 25cl. It pours a hazy very pale yellow beer with a rather big beautiful snow white head. Quite similar resemblance to Hoegaarden, but with less carbonation. Dominating citrussy aromas. Orange peel, coriander. Acidic, citric taste. Sour. The taste is clearly inferior to the taste, the aromas suggested a better beer. Watery, weak body. Slightly spicy, yeasty. This beer doesn’ t have much depth, weak finish.
