SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
June, 2005. Catford Beer Fest. Full and juicy with a good wheaty flavour and a gentle hint of passion fruit and honey.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2005
Cask@Catford Beer Festival. A bit dissapoiting, especially seeing that it comes from one of my favourite English brewers. Quite a thin, spritzy mouthfeel, with subtle hints of coriander and lemon. Some light eggy/sulfuric notes in the aroma, which werenít too pleasant. Not really up there as far as witbiers go.

omhper (19324) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2005
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Pale yellow. Citric, lemony hop aroma. Light bodied with medium sweetness and soapy hoppiness. The mouthfeel is light and rounded and thereís lingering bitterness in the finish. Much more of a blond ale than a witbier.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2005
(sampled cask-conditioned at Akkurat, Stockholm) Light yellow, low firm white head. Vague lemony aroma. Lemon and pale malts in flavour. Notes of grapefruit in the aftertaste. This is not a Wit!

DanielBrown (3782) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2005
Gravity at Banbury Beer Festival. Sampled with Maeib. Hazed yellow, no head. A bit of a pork inspired Wit. Hints at the requisite chalkiness, and is lemony, but seems like more of a Golden ale to me. Nice dryness in the finish. Very citric, with a lemon smell. Ok.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Banbury BF. A light haze to this yellow-green coloured attempt at a Belgian Wit. The aroma has a tiny amount of spice and some lemony notes. The taste is a bit medicinal with hints of lemon. It is a reasonable beer but not really true to its style.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Presumably intended to be in a Belgian wit bier style, but I donít think its one of Dark Starís more successful efforts. Very pale straw colour, only slightly hazy. There some citric edge here - even a little sharpness. However, I didnít pick up too much in the way of spicing and, overall, I found this a bit dull. Cask (handpump), Head of Steam, Euston.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2004
(Cask conditioned) Slightly hazy golden color with a medium, white head. Quite mild, flowery-hoppy aroma. Sweetish, very flowery and somewhat fruity flavor. Would like even more hopping, though. Medium-bodied, sticky, very soft and smooth, low-carbonated palate. Itís interesting to see a British, cask conditioned wheat beer. Itís just way too mild and flat to be interesting as a witbier.

imdownthepub (10140) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2003
Cask Conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival. A reasonable attempt at a Witbier, but the spice is a litle over the top, no subtlety. Lemon with a corriander flavour.
