From cask at Bon Accord. Pours slight cloudy orange with a small off-white head and creamy. Citrusy, yeasty and apple fruity aroma. Fruity flavoured with a light yeasty note and a light malt base. Medium dry and with a little bitterness coming through. Surely has some Belgian character to it.

omhper (23725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Pale yellow. Vanilla and citrus aroma. Light bodied, rather sweet with orangey finish. Very refreshing. Seems like they have something similar to summer in Scotland too...

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2005
Cask at Bohemian, Deal, Kent. I kind of agree with Gazza in that English wheat beers just do not bear any relation to their continental cousins. However, I don’t have a problem with that as the citrus fruit and american hops in this hit all of the right buttons for me. Simply gorgeous.

imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2007
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest 07. Cloudy lemon with little head. Hefty dose of caramel in the body with some spice, clove, maybe corriander. Thin and bitter on the finish with a touch of lemon. I was not sure, it was drinkable but uninteresting.

Aromas are both sweet and sour. This gold-yellow beer is typical of an English wheat and NOT a Belgian Wit. This is more like a standard bitter with more sourness. Still a decent beer but why not have an English Wheat? Its a separate style.

Cask Handpump at the Star Inn, Huddersfield 11/03/2006 Golden coloured with fruit and floral aromas. Very fruity bubble gum flavour. Bitter and slightly dry on the palate in the finish.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2008 Cask, Out of The Vaults, Leicester. Clearish yellowy haze blanketed with froth. Estery banana, ripe orange peel, leafy citrus hop, and faint seaweed on the snout. Dusty restrained Swedish biscuit spice, citrus and biscuity malt. Smells a bit Bavarian, drinks more Belgian spiced, with a tang of US hops. Like Everards Hazy Daze, another pretty tasty UK take on the style.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2005
Cask: Jan Primus, Utrecht. Clear golden color, small off-white head. Aroma of english hops, bit sour, some grains and spices. Taste is sweet and sour, some wheat and grain, very bitter. Thick body. Bitter palate. It’s not a belgian white, but it’s ok.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2007
This isnt really what i expect from a belgiun wit. Aroma was white chocolate and caramel with floural hops. Taste was similar touch of citrus, not really too sure what style this should be.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 3, 2006
Cask@The Market Porter, Borough, London. I was pretty dissapointed. This doesn’t taste like a Belgian Wit at all, more like bitter, with some subtle clovey wheat characters, and i mean really subtle. Very thin mouthfeel. Hard to go on too much about this beer, it was slightly above aerage and quite drinkable, but there just simple wasn’t much going on.
