Osprey87 (1182) - London via, - MAR 24, 2013
Cold bottle. Very pale - like a white wine. Smells like bubblegum, lemon, medicinal. Taste is very watery with a bit of citrus, fair amount of carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste like a lager. Very refreshing - would be nice in the height of summer. Nothing exciting though.

Nice Summer beer. Not hugely flavorful, but a refreshing beer for the hot weather with a clean finish.

Nice and smooth. Not got the sharpness of other 'white' ales in my opinion.

DuffMan (6168) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Lemony yellow, pillowy white head. Aroma is sweaty at first, wet hair, a touch of beta-mercaptoethanol. As the head settled, more orange and spice came through. The palate is heavy on perfumey cardamom, some citrus. Quick dry finish. Decent.

visionthing (2402) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2014
33cl bottle from Drink Shop, Tallinn. Pours hazy pale yellow with a small, white head. Light wheaty aroma with citrus and spices. Medium sweet with light sourness and a lightly citrusy and spicy finish. Fairly light body, a bit watery, but quite refreshing. Okay stuff.

jjsint (502) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, bought from Ocado. Straw, almost beige. Hazy with no head but decent carbonation. Aroma of honey and lemon pie. Mostly sweet with a bit of citrus sourness. Long bitter finish. Very watery palette. This is pretty good, but unusual.

beerfest5 (1067) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 3, 2014
Pours a bright yellow, very clear for a Belgian white, weak aroma of orange, pine, bready malts. Flavor resembles the aroma, large orange zest character. Weak, bland, less interesting interpretation of the style.

Koskela (233) - Marysville, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Malty sweetness and yeast with a hint of citrus come from this pale slightly cloudy ale with almost no head. Very sweet and almost fruitloop like taste. Its crisp and light bodied. Theres not really any bitterness and the carb is good. For a witbier its a bit too light bodied and not yeasty enough, however its a decent summer brew.

Grumbo (493) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a cloudy yellow colour, with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and peach. Tastes quite sweet, medium carbonation, light body. Peach becomes a little too overpowering.

NikkTwist (1395) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle at Moriartys. Hazy silvery gold with some slight soft white foam. Wheaty nose. Clementines. Fresh oak. Yellow plums. Papier-mache. Bamboo shoots. Ultimately a plump golden wittebier. Nice though.
