UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 Nice beer, quite refreshing as a white beer should be even if flavour remains limited.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces an initially three finger thick, pale, off-white colored head that continues to rise above the rim of the glass and makes me have to suck a couple layers of foam lest it overflow my glass. The beer is a pale, honey-gold color, but shows a hint of haze, and a pale-gold / sun-bright-straw hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of orange zest, earthy coriander notes (but clean), this is backed by an earthy, musty, phenolic yeast character, as well as hay like grain notes and a chewy, pale-grain cracker like malt character.
The foam tastes characteristic of the Dupont yeast. The beer is quite light bodied, very effervescent, but not watery. There is a soft tartness to this beer that is a combination of the yeast character, the citrus zest, and perhaps the wheat. The coriander contributes to the citrus character up front, and contributes a sort of earthy, grassy, herbal note towards the middle and finish. The beer has some carbonic bite to it, and a bit of a phenolic bite to the finish that is a mix of musty spicy notes, and a touch of clove. There is a light grain character here that plays a supporting role, light hay like notes, a touch of pale malt saltine crackers, and perhaps just a hint of fresh grain nuttiness.
This is a nice example of a Wit, it has just a suggestion of the Dupont character (or am I imagining it). The soft tartness and citrus character make for a nicely refreshing beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/13/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, white pepper, coriander, wheat, hay, straw, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, coriander, white pepper, lightly tart wheat, hay, straw, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Some light bready tartness/spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, hay, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/funky yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice witbier style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flasche (25 cl) von Belgianbeerz.com. - Goldgelb, trüb. - In der Nase leicht säuerlich-fruchtige Note wie unreife Aprikose, dazu ein zarter Hauch von Essig, der aber bald verschwindet. - Im Antrunk die unverkennbare erdig-scharfe Dupont-Note, dann huscht für einen Moment herbe unreife Frucht über die Zunge, bis sich eine warme Kandissüße einstellt. Dezente Gewürze (Koriander, Orangenschale). Spritzig rezent, recht dünnes Mundgefühl, was hier aber sehr erfrischend wirkt. Im Abgang für einen kurzen Moment krautig-herber Hopfen und zarte Frucht. Leicht trockener, schwach bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr angenehmes Bier, das innerhalb kurzer Zeit eine Fülle von verschiedenen Eindrücken - von erdig über zitronig bis krautig - über die Zunge huschen läßt und dabei doch spritzig und leicht bleibt. Große Klasse! Schade nur, daß die Flaschen so klein sind ...

Een witbier type Hoegaarden. Ik vond er niets aan, maar ben dan ook geen fan van witbieren.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dupont’s contribution to the style, organic witbier with cream white, moussy, stable head and pure golden blonde colour, misty. Typical wheaty nose with sweetish barley, citrus and coriander, but also an apply sweetness. Taste begins with this apply accent, citrussy as well, then a very fresh lightly sourish wheat character and refinded, subtle pale maltiness, after the middle spicier (coriander) and in the end a subtle hint of aromatic hops. Gentle and extremely elegant, as any good witbier should be.
