stouby (3717) - Holbćk, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2005
Draught, at Delirium Cafe. Light amber with white head, mostly diminishing, good lacings. Aroma light/moderate malty, light hoppy and yeasty (citrus). Flavor light/moderate sweet and acidic, short duration. Light body, watery, soft carbonated. To light!

ALLOVATE (2384) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2005
Tasted this from the bottle on the first warm day that we’ve had this spring. Poured into a stumpy tulip, palest pastel yellow body, misty, with ultra fine carbonation raising up a decent sized, soapy white lather of foam that lasted and left some legs. Yeasty, breadcrumbs, sweet pineapple and vinegar nose; not what I expected of a wit. Summery and fresh, fruity and quite delicate on the tongue. Subtle flavours of pineapple, grapefruit and white wine mixed with a little bready, sourdough mid-palate and some sour lemons in the back. Finish was quite crisp with only the slightest hint of citric acid lingering between mouthfuls. Quite light on, but well made for a thirst quencher. Easy drinking!!! (33cL, BBE 12/06)

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2005
Misty pale yellow. Flowery, spicy, clove, pine needles nose. Complex flavour. Lots of spicyness. Some hints of bananas. A little grassy. Sweet finish.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2005
On draught at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Hazy pale golden. Big fruity(banana, canned fruits) nose. Butter/Diacetyl lurks behind. The flavour is immensely big. Mouthfeel is light. Taste is smallish notes of choriander with that curacao touch and an underlying sourish tone. I found this very estery, although "it is not supposed to be so". This very tasty Wit very well held up to the expectations of the opening of Delirium Café in Göteborg!

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2005
Bottle. Light cloudy orange with a disappearing head. Aromas are sweet and floral with wheat and some citrus zest. Flavours are soft wheat, quite dry followed by sweet lemon. The finish is dry and very floral. Has a good sparkle and is refreshing.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2005
(Draught@Delirium Cafe, Brussels) Opaque yellow with a small, firm, white head and lace. Wheaty, flowery, slightly sweet aroma. Quite plain, lemony and slightly papery flavor. Light-bodied palate with foamy carbonation. A plain and quite taste-/characterless wit.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) 4,5% ABV in my version. I have a sneaking suspicion, that this beer is off - if not it’s the most unusual witbier I’ve had to this date. No head, almost no colour but nonetheless it’s not flat at all. Paradoxically this has a flavour reminding me of single malt whisky - which also the nose indicates. Everything is wrong about this as a witbier, but it does have some weird attraction. 100699

(Bottle 33 cl) Pale, hazy, yellow beer. Very fruity and citrusy -almost perfumy. No bitterness. An excellent and very typical Witbier. 171197

DanielBrown (3782) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 On tap at the Jaguar Cafe, Montpellier. Looks like Hoegaarden, and is served in one of that brewer’s glasses. Quite a hard, crispy edge to the flavour (a sneaky bit of bitterness). Smooth and shiny mouthfeel. Good lemon and wheat, good balance. Great Wit, served in good nick.

madquacker (1036) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2005
Cloudy appearance. Aromas of grapefruit. A robust full bottld wheat beer without much subtleness. Very goof value for the price.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Aroma is exactly that of a dish of canned apricots. Fruity and sweet, very nice, though just a bit buttery. Hazy golden yellow with thin white head. Watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts mildly fruity, with apricot and citrus, and some spicy character. Chalky yeasty bitterness toward finish and into the after. Overall, it’s rather watery and not that colorful. Mild acidity. Disappointing taste after that nice aroma.
