Bov (9630) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2010
from crackedkettle.com - cloudy orange colour with a decent head retention; estery, perfumy and very spicy aroma; sharp and with a solid carbonation; tart and acidic; some residual sweetness and a moderate bitterness in a long spicy (coriander) and fruity estery finish - interesting

10/IV/2012 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: I/14 (2012-341)

Little cloudy dark blond beer, big creamy off-white head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, sweet peaches, some citrus fruits, touch of exotic fruits (it’s no USA hops, but the yeast, similar as in the Heerenbeer I had at De Heeren recently). MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus fruits, bit of sweet malts, fruity, little sugary sweetness, grassy bitter hops. Aftertaste: bit sweet, bitter hops, citrus fruits, some alcohol noticeable. WTF is with the low ratings? Guess my bottle is from a newer batch, and it’s pretty decent now. No defects or weird smells.

Countbeer (4561) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle: 5,5% alc. A head which is medium sized, creamy colored and pretty vast in texture, on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Smell hops, citrus, pine, resin, some orange peel, grains, sweet grains, corn, malts, something light stingy and a good floral touch. Taste hops, fruit, citrus, mango and red oranges, a hint of normal oranges, earth, malts, floral, hop herbs, hint of yeast, bread ish, dusty, some bitterness and a light warmth towards the aftertaste. Pretty nice crispy with a good hop fruit and yeast fruit character and a fine bitterness. Aftertaste is hop fruits, earthy, bitter and some yeasty fruit notes. Medium carbo, soft spicy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Pretty nice and balanced brew!

77ships (4164) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. Label looks like a kid’s drawing. Text on the back on the bottle seems to state that this is actually a witbeer. BBF 20/01/2014. Pours orange with a creamy white head. Nose is full citrus, touch dishwashing liquid like but not heavily, hoppy, some wheat, smells not badly, expected something terrible given the score on here. Taste is bitter floral, citrus, bitter hops, EU ones but agreeable, light medicinal / EU hops taste, bitter citrus peel, heavy esters, grass, quite bitter, herbal, touch booze. Something synthetic about it but not too heavy / quite weird but definitely not as bad as the score suggests here. Increases greatly once warmed up and you get quite used to it. It is quite nice actually. Maybe the recipe for this was recently improved or some issues fixed or something. Lots of carb, almost sparkling.

Een lekker biertje dat vlot wegdrinkt maar toch nog goed wat smaak heeft. Een aanrader

omhper (19698) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2008
Bottled. Muddy golden, airy head. Perfumy orangey nose. Sweet and soapy. Medium bodied, fairly soft and chewy. Lotts of orange and some grassy hops that gives a bit of bitterness.

thewolf (11193) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle.
Pours muddy yellow with a big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, wheaty, malty, apple and lots of citrus. Medium carbonation, fair and rather light mouthfeel. Flavour has a powerful note of citrus, some graininess, apple, wheat and softly vinious. As a wit-beer it is rather nice.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2006
Clear gold blond colour, white head. Sweet hoppy aroma, light fruity with a full body and some carbonation. Finish is herby; rather strong for only 5 %. Very good

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Hazy orange color with a small but tight head. Fresh aroma of hop flowers and hints of honey. Acidic, moderately hoppy flavor with hints of wheat and sour apple. Medium-bodied palate with a bit high, but quite smooth carbonation. A decent summer drink.
