Bottle. Yellow color,with a good and lasting white head. Aromas of oranges, yeast, coriander. Same elements in the taste that ends with a slight sourness, adding freshness. Medium boy and very lively on the palate. This is sure one of the best belgian whites. I love ’m.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 Oh man, is this a little gem or what?! Peppery yeastyness and a nice whiff of coriander. Way to bitter for the witbier style and I love it! Favourite session beer at the moment. Thank god I ordered plenty.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Pours a hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1.5 finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Slightly spicy, earthy aroma with a nice balance of funky yeast, bread, alcohol, zesty spice and light fruit. Slight vegetal presence with hints of earthy and grass followed by some peppery coriander and citrus rind. Dupont makes this and the nose shows it. A nice blend of saison and witbier characteristics. Medium bodied with some soft carbonation up front that lingers over the funky, spicy and sweet notes into a slightly dry finish. Again, the saison yeast is very evident with a funky, musty character. Hints of grass and straw countered by some zesty coriander and pepper as well as some citrus/light fruit. Hints of apple, pear and lemon rind give it the perfect amount of sweetness on the back end. Incredibly complex, delicious and extremely quaffable, especially on this 96 degree day. Highly recommended!

One is never enough, on a hot summer day a large glass with two 25cl botles in it is superb, for me this is the best Blanche ever.

minutemat (1305) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
25cl bottle from Vanuxeem. A nice cheeky little witte here with all the banana-ry yeast you could wish for and a great hazy quality that borders into German Weisbier territory. Yum yum.

JDBaker11058 (1205) - Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2012
Appearance: cloudy orange butterscotch, thick white head, lots of lace. Aroma: cracked pepper, grass, hay, barnyard, light citrus, ritz crackers, honey, and coriander. Taste: toasted white bread, peppery hops, yeast, citrus, and coriander. Finish: crackery, dry, lingering spicy yeast. Notes: Fantastic wit. More peppery than the usual version in this style, but this was a nice twist. Extremely refreshing, with a creamy but light palate that is just plain outstanding.

Lukaduke (2000) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy blondish straw color with a big frothy rocky head. Bright aromas of earthy light malts with citrus and herbal & floral notes. On the palate there is a nice fruit mid palate of pear and apple mixed with a heap of herbal great spicy pepper notes on the dry finish.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2011 printed on the cork. Pours lightly hazy and cloudy golden straw color with a 2 finger fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap than lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big apple, pear, grape, lemon zest, coriander, orange peel, hay, grass, herbal, white pepper, wheat, and light funk. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of apple, pear, grape, lemon, orange peel, tangy wheat, bread, hay, grass, coriander, floral, light pepper, and light funkiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, lemon zest, wheat, bread, grass, floral, hay, coriander, light pepper, and light funk on the finish for a bit. Damn nice flavor balance with a high amount of complexity; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp and fairly prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very excellent witbier! There is a high amount of flavor complexity and balance; and it is extremely smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

brekeriet (139) - SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle at Schiphol. Aroma: Diacetyl, malty, spicy, cloves, a bit phenolic. Nice head, ab bit hazy. Sourish taste, nice balance, a bit umami. Soft, oily, perfect CO2-level, a bit light body. Very nice and balanced beer with a bit to much diacetyl for my taste.
