Bottle @home. Pours a beautiful deep gold, with a thin, clingy white head, no carbonation visible. A very nice nose of wheat, sweet malt, and a very deep floral blossom hint, touch of honey there aswell. For a white beer it’s well hopped, with a beautiful bitterness, together with sweet malt and some fruity (orange or citrus) notes, slight hint of sweet chestnut, lovely doughy taste in the middle region, going to the yeasty aftertaste with a nice citric or metallic edge in the end, where it finds the hop again too. Lovely dry finish, nice thin oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation. All in all a well balanced, highly enjoyable wheatbeer, luckily not your average whitebeer, very palatable indeed!

Bottle from Bezoekerscentrum De Lambiek in Alsemberg. Herberg’s wheat beer, but it does not look like just another Hoegaarden epigone: instead of the standard hazy ’white’ colour, it pours a warm and clear ’old gold’ colour, with lively fizz, turning hazy with deposit; the head is thin, loose and egg-white in colour and breaks open quickly, but retains (thinly) on the edges. Sweet and fruity aroma of pineapple, mandarin, cider, bread, honey, orange peel, iron, something faintly cooked vegetable-like (DMS), floral hops, but I do not get coriander. Restrainedly fruity in the mouth, gooseberries, hints of apple and peach, soft carbo, smooth and slick mouthfeel, pleasant bready malt flavour with a light caramelly edge as well as an equally bready and somewhat grainy wheat presence - a bit sourish, but clearly not raw wheat, as indeed this one appears to be made with malted wheat, like a German Weissbier. Ends with this same maltiness, bready and lightly sourish, paired with some deep, leafy hop bitterishness with a subtle floral aroma retronasally; the hops provide drought and balance. This is not your stereotypical Belgian wit, this is a Belgian blonde made with malted wheat, and in that sense even a fairly enjoyable one; the sourish wheat brings freshness and has a quenching effect and there is enough hop presence to achieve balance. Nothing extraordinary, but likeable for sure.

from Schoentjes - pours a cloudy dark blond beer with a firm and persistent white head; perfumy nose with aroma of coriander, corns and lavender; a decent malt backbone and a fair carbonation; decently dry, light tart and sourish and with a long aftertaste of coriander and citrus; earthy

Sampled @ Gents Bierfestival 2014. 330 ml. bottle. Hazy orange, creamy white head. Smells f soap, lemonade wheat, touch chemicals,.. Taste is sweet white sugar, chemical, soapy, lemonade wheat toffee, yeasty citrus,… Muddled wheat / lemonade / yeast body. Nope this didn’t seem entirely kosher, still drinks though.

Een heel lekker bier met een bijzondere smaak. Redelijk complex, maar echt een aanrader om eens te proberen.
