whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2003
Straw body with heavy carbonation and rolling chunks of sediment that look like paint chips. Head faded fast and completely due to the high effervescence. Sweet buttery and nutty beer, with a hint of apples and coriander spice. Fizzy body. The palate is like a gin and tonic. Disappointing.

Laugesen (5) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2003 does not count
A different, but nice wheat which is a bit smoked and spiced, whit a flavour of wheat, corriander and fruit.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2003
Wheat, yeast and spice aromas. Hazy yellow, nice sized white head, a few floaties, some lace. Flavours are; wheat, yeast and corriander. Crisp, clean, light bodied with a delightful mouthfeel. Terrific!

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 1, 2003
Very aromatic and elegant wit. Long symphony of spicy, coriander, yeasty, wheaty and fruity flavors. Superdry peppery finish.

jonas (6141) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2003
Opening of the bottle releases a whiff of yeasty tartness. Citric, sweet banana and a bit bitter nose. Hazy white-yellow, creamy white head is not as impressive as with other wit. Subtle fruity flavors (citrus, banana). Pleasant velvet mouthfeel. Crisp aftertaste.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2003
Hazy and yellow. Aroma of sweet malt, spices, orange-peels and apple. Taste: a great wit; smooth, crispy and dry at the same time. Not much seetnes with some yeastiness. Fresh fruity notes of orange, lemon and apple. Dry finish.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 17, 2003
At the Palace Hotel in Poperinge - hazy and yellow. Looks right. Spices and citrur in aroma. Slight tang, light body. Good for the hot day.

mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2003
Had this in a french café, served too cold with a slice of lemon )-: Had to buy some bottles to sample it again. A very nice wheat beer.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Typical light hazy yellow color. Inspiring lemon, oranges and spices aroma. You feel refreshed already after the first sip from the well balanced sweetness with a little tart taste towards the end that leaves you all ready for a new adventure: Best white beer I ever tried.

I had the chance to revisit. This was a rating from my first week on the site. Still enjoyable and a classic example, but nothing really sets it apart from other wits.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Bright hazy yellow hue. Pours with a frothy, white head. Markedly fruity,lemon and peach-scented aromas. Crisp, tangy flavors with a suggestion of fruit sweetness. Somewhat dry and sour on the finish.
