schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2004
25 cl bottle, bbe July 2006. Dark blond, slightly turbid, a rich head that holds well. Fruity and herbal in the nose with a very pleasant sweetish component. Sweet-sourish on the tongue with a fruity aftertaste which flows out in light hop bitterness. Some spiciness in the flavour. Not bad, but a bit too sour for my taste.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2004
(Bottled) Hazy yellow-orange color with a smallish head. Spicy, crisp and lemony witbier aroma. Pleasant and fresh, demi-dry, spicy and wheaty, peppery and lemony flavor. Medium-bodied, crisp and carbonated, dryish palate. A quality witbier, and a very refreshing summer drink (it’s mid-winter now, though :P)!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
Bottle. Lightly spicy, wheaty wit. Has a similiar peppery, dry character that other beers from Dupont have, lightly sticky, but finishes dry.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 19, 2004
cloudy dark orange colour, the initial big creamy head quickly reduces to a fine foam, wheaty and perfumy, orangezest and coriander, medium-bodied, tart and slightly acidic, dry citrusy, wheaty finish - balance and character

jonas (5477) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2004
Citrus, spice and yeast, but unfortunately also a slight vegetable aroma. Orange-yellow, cloudy, clumps of yeast hard to avoid. Spicy tastenotes dominate (coriander, salt, pepper) together with minerals. A bit citrus in the middle - spicy finish. Relatively light body, sparkly mouthfeel. Not very harmonic brew.

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2004
Dull n dusty orange color with small dissapearing head. Aroma is dominated by a whift of oranges and malt. Watery flavor with dominant citrus/orange taste and some yeast. Also spices (coreander) and some caramelly sweetness. Im not extremely impressed, but it was very drinkable...

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2004
Darker, but clear gold; good fluffy head with yellowish shine, dissipating. Initial yeasty, very meaty aroma's go over in citrussy & peppery nose. Tart, citrussy taste with wheat obvious. Palate has a strange, chaff or oatmeal-like flavour. Initially quite some acidity, even adstringency, very lemon-like in character. Finish hints at a sweeter stickiness, without reaching it. Aftertaste seems really peppery. A decent wit, with a good dose of citrus. From Dupont, however, I'd expected some more hops to kick *ss.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2004
This is a rather atypical Belgian wit, First of all, at 5.5% it is a little stronger than most others (apart from Abbaye des Rocs' Blanches des Honelles). Secondly, it is rather less hazy than many of its peers. However, it compensates for that by being packed with big flaky yeast particles, most of which reached the bottom of the glass before I did. The colour is mid gold and carbonation is modest. The aroma is grassy, with less wheat influence than expected. However, the real surprise is in the flavour, which is entirely dominated by intense lemon tartness. The finish is acidic and distinctly sour. This is an interesting and unusual witbier that retains a refreshing character, but I'm not convinced it is 100% successful. For me, the lemon rush is just too strident to be hugely enjoyable. Bottled (25cl).

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2004
Hazy light yellow color, white head. Strange aroma: Hay, undefined fruit and some alcohol. Fresh though somewhat watery and thin. Citrus, spices, coriander and hops. Nice taste but too light.
