JorisPPattyn (9086) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2007
Fully hazy yellow with a slight greenish shine, and a small, white, dense & fine head. Another coriander onslaught, wheat discernible, and I seem to get some diacetyl too, even DMS (celery, cooked corn). Diacetyl-filled coriandersoup. Disgusting, even despite the lemony ending that cannot save it. Light bodied, slight wheat slickness. Horrible witbier; Huyghe at its... [sorry].

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 bottled. I don’t recall how, but I ended up with a Blanche des Neiges weizen glass. It seemed only right to pick up a bottle. I was a little disappointed. Lemon, yeast and coriander nose. Taste is a bit muted - citrus and spice with some fruit hints. Finish was short lived, but as lemony as Hoegaarden. Shame.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Zesty lemon aroma, but a bit pale in color even for white. Flavor is what you would expect for this style, smooth and easy-drinking. The lemon flavor was all I noticed, but the finish was very tasty. By no means a great beer, but a beer I could probably pound all night with out remorse. Cheers

Beer5000 (5650) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2007
A sweet and soft version of a witbier. The coriander and the flowers are all there, but it’s still a bit undefined. Somehow this is somewhere in between a blonde and a wit. Refreshing and nice but not typical.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle at Delirium Cafe. Notes just say spicy and tea. Fairly anonymous wit whose rating might suffer from fairly rough company.

madsberg (11255) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2006
Bottled. Pale yellow. Unclear. Dense white head. Light sour nose (no its not out of date), coriander, fruits and light yeast. Flavour is light spiced and has some sweet and fruity notes. Is quite bland. Medium to light bodied. Is quite spiced in the end. Refreshing, but a bit to bland for my likings.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 Zesty, lemony and creamily smooth witbier with a mellow wheatiness. Well maintained fluffy white head. Losing its fizz a bit now but that’s probably my dirty mouth. Mostly wheat and subtle spice, but more in the nose than any concluding tartness. A fine specimen.

harrisoni (16596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2006
Bottle. Hazy green gold colour with lasting white head. This is more like it. Beats the Haacht Wit (which I had before it) into a 3 cornered hat. Lemon/wheat/cereal aroma. Pleasant and attractive. Cold and refreshing. Excellent smooth wheat beer with lemon kicker on the finish

TBone (15542) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 2, 2006
Bottled (BB 12/2006)
Pale yellow, a bt hazy color, small white head. Strange rubbery, wheaty aroma. Light. Flavor par to aroma, light touch of coriander. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Bland witbier.
