La Houleuse est une bière blanche de froment. Sa légéreté et sa douceur sont accompagnées d'une saveur toute particulière générée par l' adjonction d'écorces d'oranges amères et de coriandre lors du brassage.

330 ml bottle. BB 21/05/2015. From a trade with CH-303. Thanks a lot Asbjørn!
Hazy golden brown colour with a huge foamy white head. Yeast, caramel sweetness, citrus, spices and wheat in the aroma. Yummy! The flavour is wheat, yeast, malt, paper and some spices. Would need a bit more freshness.

bartlebier (2410) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
33cl bottle bb03/2015 shared by bastarda. Perfumed white flower and chalky yeast give way too a shy flavour profile of organically tart, near-fruity wheat, finishing on a lavendar note. Higher than average abv, bit watery.

Hugi (438) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Thanks to bastarada for sharing this beer with bartlebier and me. Hazy-yellow, medium white head. A bit sour aroma, spices and some brettanomyces-aroma present. Slightly fruity taste, sour aftertaste, dry finish.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml botttle serbed in an ordinary glass. A: Pours a cloudy pale yellow to white color forming a big bubbled and aired white head. Good retention but only few lacings left in the glass. S: Standard Witbier: Sweet grains, wheat and spices. Strong notes of coriander and orange zest and some flowery hops. T: Slightly sweet upfront. Traditional notes of sweet pale malts, wheat and spices. Coriander and orange zest again. In overall, a dry taste with a nice hoppy bitterness in the end. Perhaps less sweet and more bitter than a classic Witbier. Bready yeasts, Belgian style M: Light body and good carbonation. Watery and refreshing in the mouth. Aftertaste is bready and spicy. O: Great drinkability. Smooth and pleasant as a Witbier should be. [ BA Review @ 8/13/2013 ]

Not the best attempt at a Witbier. No head. No smoothness. Instead unpleasant sharp aftertaste. Spices are underwhelming.

Nickls (1925) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a minimal white head; very hazy yellow/marigold. Some coriander, flowers, oranges, apples and banana in the aroma. Flavor mirrors the aroma very closely with some sweetness, but almost a fruity sourness as well. Body is thinner, but OK. Not bad.
