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

yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2007
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. Citrus/lime fruity aroma with a minor spice note. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Wheaty flavoured with a mild spicyness and a refreshing citrus/lime note. Ends soft wheaty and fresh without any bitterness. Overall an extremely smooth beer which lacks some more flavour to be really good.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2002
An unclear very yellow beer with a good head. It tastes a lot of lemon/citrus and is very acidic but at the same time very fresh. The overpowering taste of lemon - makes me choose another witbier when that is what I want.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 75 cl) One of the first Belgian whites to enter the market after the succesful relaunch of Hoegaarden by Pierre Celis. Paler than Hoegaarden, but with a smaller head. All the typical perfumy coriander and orange peel notes that make witbiers such a wonderful and quenching experience. This is one of the best. 040993

Hazy light yellow with fine white head and some good lacings. Coriander, citrus & wheat. Orange "wheatey" taste. Highly carbonated. Fresh’n’fruity! Nice and easy drinkable!

harrisoni (13734) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2006
75cl bottle from Tesco. Cloudy old gold colour with thick lasting white head. Yeasty, spicey, orange, coriander, orange peel aroma. Hoegaarden wannabe. Nice, attractive aroma, hit of wheat to start with and then lovely lemon/orange mix to finish with herb and more cereal. This is very refreshing and overall a nice beer of its style.
Earlier Rating: 3/24/2006 Total Score: 3.3
Bottle. Cloudy lemon/gold, disappearing white head. Good Belgian white beer aroma. Lemon, cereal, refreshing in mouth. Ticks all the boxes. Not exceptional, but no faults either. Nice tasting wit. I like this style of beer.
