bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
75cl bottle from source, Mariembourg 05/2014, bb07/2015. Pours an extremely yeast-murky brackish peach orange. Immediate yeast and coriander forward fragrancies of a heavily spiced, amped Blanche in the 6% tradition of Blanche des Honelles rather than Blanche de Namur. Ripe peach, coriander, banana distract the course of this BE-Wit into a De-Weizen with some extras. Pappy palate. Strangely not on tap at source, asking price for a bottle is nearly twice that of superior Blanche de Namur.

16/IV/13 - 75cl bottle from Comptoir des Fagnes (Couvin, BE) @ home - BB: XII/2013 (2013-332)

Cloudy beige beer, irregular off-white head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: very floral, honey, lots of coriander, citrus, bit lemony. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: coriander, bit sweet, very floral, citric, lemony. Aftertaste: citrus, soapy touch, coriander, very refreshing, little metallic. Pretty decent witbier!

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2012
75cl bottle bought at 8ième fête de la bière Namuroise. BB 03/2013. Dorée, col épais blanc. Arôme d’agrumes, grains bien présent avec en retrait une fine note épicée. Palais garde un profile sec mais surtout axé sur le grains/froment voire même un côté épeautre qui sort cette dernière du lot pour un style de ’blanche belge’. Pointe d’écorce d’orange et de levure. Alcool est plus élevé et se ressent un peu, le tout fini sur une pointe d’épice avec en fin de bouche un profile allant presque sur le grains/tourbe et une légère épice.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2009
Light hazy yellow coloured beer with lots of carbonation and an average white head. Herby aroma, light dry malty near the end with some peppery touches. Medium to full dry palate. FInish is bitter, light herby and dry hoppy touched. Hints of koriander and orange peel. Rather dry but decent white beer.

Jerre (3235) - Waregem, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle, 75 cl. It’s weeks ago taste this beer. Now found my notes. Hazy yellow color, with white head. Aroma yeast, citrus, fruity. Medium body. Taste lemon, fruity, bitterness, dry end. Not so great.

Bosskie (766) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2007
6% 75cl bottle from the brewery. Typical white beer: hazy, cloudy hay colour with an enthousiastic head. Smells fruity, citric, like lemon peels... has a peculiar salty, irony, vinegary taste which reminds me of a terribly bitter fruit beer I had once. Dry and watery, it doesn;t leave much of an aftertaste.

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2006
Bottled. Cloudy pale yellow. Strong citiric aroma. Sweetish and rather light-medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel and a short, but intense blast of orange flavour. Lightly salty finish. On the fuller, more flavourful side of witbiers.
