La CH’TI Blanche est une bière naturellement trouble, rafraîchissante et légère aux arômes fruités et épicés. Afin de profiter de toute sa saveur, nous vous conseillons de la tenir au frais et de la déguster à une température de +/- 5 °C dans son verre préalablement rincé et non essuyé.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Very hazed straw yellow as it sits in my chalice, with an assured, yet slim layer of snow white bubbles lay above. Looks like a wit. Aroma, sour and citric, but on first sniff, unremarkable. And that’s how I insist my wits smell...remarking of something, at least. No, none too pretty, wish I could state otherwise. Taste: Weird. Not terribly pleasant. Doesn’t have that uplifting zip and zing, that light, airy spirit a good wit should have. Feels laden down with something it shouldn’t be,...a bit plastic. Is this infected? Might be an old bottle, might be a bad one, but this is not a good wit in the least. Not a happy beer at all, at all.

leaparsons (9837) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle. Tesco Finest.. Cloudy orange (looks like apple juice) with a big disappearing white head. Aromas are crisp, fresh wheat with citrus, hints of banana, Not much coriander. Flavours are refreshing, wheat orange and lemon. Soft. Not the most multi-dimensional of beers. Not getting much coriander. Some wheat citrus sourness. Crisp and too bloating.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottled.from Sainsbury’s beer festival. Hazy washing-up water/weak tea looking, there goes the head, weak yeasty aroma, bit of zip to the flavour when it’s given a good swirl, subtle lemon, hint of light spice but its a pale excuse for a witbier

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2005
Bottled. A very hazy flat orangey looking beer with a short lived fluffy head. The aroma has butterscotch and caramel which I’d expect to find in an English bitter. The taste has some lemony wheaty flavours but again that diacetyl comes through. It’s not a bad drink but doesn’t really taste like it ought to.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Pours pale orange, cloudy; brief head. Aroma was dates and bananas. Felt a bit watery. Slight sourness and a hint of bitterness. Rather fizzy, but quite refreshing.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2007
750m Bottle. Cork couldn’t wait to get out of the bottle. Slightly hazy, straw coloured body with a decent head and rings of lacing. Soft spices on the nose and some lemon in the taste although it falls away pretty quickly, even a little watery. Easily drinkable though not very memorable or very refreshing.

25 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is floral and yeasty fruity. Sweet malty flavoured, rather floral note and perfumed. Sweet and light malty finish. Strange floral brew.

rosenbergh (10367) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
750 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with tiny white head. Yeast, caramel toffee, mild sourness and mild wheat in aroma. Sourish fruit, sweet toffee and dry wheat. Not that successful Witbier.

rauchbier (3800) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2004
Bottle, from Tesco (called Finest French Wheat Beer). Hazy lemon gold, poor shortlived fizzle of white foam, soft condition. Forced candy sweetness and lemon citrus in the nose, clumsy mix of low lemon, butterscotch and corriander in the mouth none of which seem in harmony with the other flavours. Gets a little too sweet before developing a chalky dryness in the finish with a lingering spicy corriander note. Messy.

I honestly don’t know if this breweries beers are getting worse or if my palate has just called in sick and spent the day on the couch. Not the worst by a long shot, but this one sits alongside them all in the thin, watery mess stakes to barely pass as beer. Poured into it’s own chalice, quite chilled. Appearance was impressive as it turned out to be more head than beer. Surged up the spout of the glass to settle a good two inches thick and retained well to web down the sides. The body of beer was opaque and a tawny yellow in colour with fine wispy carbonation. Initially pungent and spicy, coriander, lemon, vinegar and egg aroma that was lost quickly. Similarly spicy, but more vinous and tart in the mouth with prickly carbonation that was at odds to the pasty smooth back end. Finishes off with fresh herbs with little to no aftertaste. Lemons and dull wheat flavours become pronounced but lack bounce and it’s watery, even as it warms. Simple, not unpleasant but undemanding. Average. (25cL, 08/06/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)
