Benzai (10613) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle @ Brugs Beertje, Brugge. Hazy yellow to light orange color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell and taste wheat, lightly herbs or spices, a little sweet. Average body and carbonation. Hmm pretty average and not really what I think a Belgian White should be.

JorisPPattyn (8570) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012
Good snowwhite head over yellowish beer with a green sheen. Coriander, fake citrus overpowering the nose. Soapy flavour, perfumed in an artificial-liek way, citrussy, but no longer coriander - no doubt the chamomille. Light, bit wheatslickness. Worse than average perfume, sorry, witbier.

sebletitje (7887) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle sample @ 5de Brugs Bier festival. Dorée brumeuse, col blanc. Arôme reste assez doux avec une pointe de crudité et de malt biscuité. En bouche, Un houblon sec allant vers Hallertau et une épice anisé dont je n’avais pas prévu être de la camomille. Malté blé donne ce côté biscuité que je trouve agréable et est suivi par ce profile de malt pils dans un style plus allemand.

4/II/2012 on tap @ Brugs Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2012-86)

Cloudy beige muddy beer, nice off-white creamy head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty malty, grains, bit metallic, some citrus. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, some honey, flowers, spices (aniseed). Aftertaste: citrus, bitter touch, more spices. Not as original as hoped for.

77ships (5534) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012
bottle sampled @ Bruges Beer Festival 2012: hazy citrus yellow, touch orange with a small white head, smells like doughy yeast, sweet wheat & slightly fake citrus hops, taste is sweet upfront, tastes like cookies & raw cookie dough, plenty of yeast poured into this one, taste more yeasty than wheat to me, tad watery, some wheat, slightly bitter in the finish with some tad fake citrus hops – camomile? didn’t pick it up but might be just me, didn’t get coriander either, maybe touch unspecific herbs in smell – obviously this need more cookies

BlackHaddock (4984) - 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!

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2012
(Bottled) Opaque yellow with a small head. Very spicy coriander nose with strong lemon notes and wheaty sourness. Flavor is lemony-spicy, pale-malty, lightly sour and soapy with meadowsweet, chamomile and honey. Light to medium body, refreshing, lowish CO2. A nice wit with character. 4244
