A sweet apple and honey character and a "chewy" body.

In my opinion, Dentergems is among the finest of all ’witbieren’. It’s soft, fresh, mild-sour taste is easy to recognise by hints of orange and coriander. This is easily my favourite, only Hoegaarden, Weihenstephan and Pauwels come close. And also, they designed the most pleasant beer glass ever.

Probably the best Wit bier I have ever tried. VEry pale almost white like a Weizen BIer, but it has its BElgian features. Was not bitter and sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2003 Draught. My favourite whitebeer.It has a lovely citrus taste, smells of citrus and hops and to my taste is never boring, not even in the winter.

This is the same beer as Blanche de Chambly from Unibroue (Québec). Same yeast, same apparent spice, malt and hop bill, same carbonation. I drink alot of wits and I would be tricked 100% of the time between these two.

330 ml bottle. White beer that looks like a blond (yellow). Not too cloudy (compared to Hoegaarden). A light citrus aroma. A good citrus taste. Really light beer. Low carbonation. I would buy again.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draft glass
Consumed at In de Wildeman, Amsterdam, May 2006

Cloudy wheat/wit appearance, downright perfect lookingg. Sweet up front, very good overall, solid tartness, with some bitter yeast flavors. Impressive, but I believe I may have been a tad drunk at the time. Notes are still readable.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2006
Straw and hazy with a large head to start which quickly fades. Aroma is wheaty, clove and red apple. Crisp texture, lots of clove, banana and sweetness. A little tarter on the finish but still carries the sweetness through.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - SEP 8, 2001
Orange to yellow color, with a white head. Very light and smooth, not as ’in your face’ as Hoegaarden or others. Very pleasant, and subdued. Not as spicy as others but there is a distinct banana taste. Pleasant and easy to drink.
