BlackHaddock (3185) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Brugge Beer Festival 2014: a beer with ’chamomile’ (a daisy tea?) and Pilsner Malts with the brew kettle. No wonder I didn’t really take to it! Golden orange with a slight haze, on top a white crown of bubbles. The nose is of mild wheat/grains and yeast esters, maybe a citrus hint if you sniff long and hard enough. Taste followed the smell to the letter, wheat, other grains and yeasty: a typical Belgian Witbier but without the spiciness or fruitiness you’d expect. I’m not huge fan of the style anyway, so this wasn’t my cup of tea. My only mistake of the day!

blackisle (463) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2014
Very hazy orange color, small off-white head, dissipates quickly, only meagre rim remains; yeasty grain nose, dough, citrus and lemon notes, some coriander, camomile, soapy; mild sweetsour taste with bitter undertones; bit watery kinda thin mouthfeel, low carbonation, light to medium body; slightly more bitterness in the finish.

bartlebier (1196) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Shared Pour @BBF 02/2014, ZA (M). Fluffy & fragrant wit, slightly over-aromatised either by adjuncts or an overachieving yeast?, switches between wheat wateriness and fine hop armatics, slightly unbalanced maybe, but ultimately pleasant drinking.

altonbrownd (4618) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle from Beer Planet. Citrus orange body with medium head. Nose is citrus, fruits, oranges. Taste is also quite fruity, watery, with nice prickly texture to it. Okay in my book.

EddyBeer1 (765) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2013
Dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne-légère, col blanc moyen. Les malts annoncés (dont un de froment) sont bien présents, tout comme la camomille en arrière-goût ainsi qu’une petite amertume houblonnée. Par contre, pas de nouvelles du miel indiqué!

Holmen1 (2018) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
Flaske på Brugs Beertje, kanskje den koseligste ølkneipen i Brugge: De witte zwan var forslaget fra "Around Brugge in 80 Beers", men det var ikke et heldig valg. Masse skum og lite smak, med en noe ufrisk dominans av kamille og et snev av citrus, men ikke nok til å gjøre denne til en god forfriskning i sommerværet.

suprchunk (1955) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Hazy gold pour. Small white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of earth and malt. Sweet malty taste. Some earthy notes. Not bad. A little thin but quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Although inoffensive this white beer has little depth of flavour and serves well only for refreshment. Overall, bland.
