0.33 l bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Vi?nja, thanks! Opaque pale creamy yellow, small white head. Spicy, hoppy, fruity, citrus. Pale ale like character, no real wit in taste. Neutral. Some banana. Low carbonation. No finish.

Vestergaard (1293) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium sized White head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, dry and sweet, wheat, some hops, pepper, not very prominent nutmeg, but some spicyness. Taste is sweet and wheaty. Actually the wheat provides some dry texture to this. Spicy, and more nutmeg in the taste, although i probably wouldn't have guessed it if i didn't know it was there. Average carb and a wheaty full body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thellgren (601) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2015
0.33 l bottle from Alko (Arkadia Special Collection). Cloudy, grapefruit juice like colour. Taste is mainly citrus fruit. A bit different from the Belgian witbier.

TorbenJensen (1406) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2015
Short term foaming at the pouring of this beautiful straw yellow Witbier from the Japanese brewery Kiuchi. Lovely wheat aroma of fresh cereal with some fresh fruit like a little shade. The taste is almost like a Witbier should be: with coriander, fresh grain taste and a small taste of yeast which together with discrete hops form the fine end. But between these flavors will also find a sweet fruit flavors of pineapple and apricot, and it does not hang perfectly with my standard view of a Belgian wit. It moves more on the border of blonde Belgian and German hefeweizen, but with slightly more against the Belgian. Lovely and different interpretation of a Witbier.

blackradioboy (136) - SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose. (£1.80 offer). Very odd this. The first thing that hits you is cardboard, followed by a tiny, minuscule bit of fruit. Hmm... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (5539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2015
330ml bottle. Cloudy to milky, yellow-ish pale golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Spicy aroma, notes of nutmeg, coriander, orange zest. Taste is minimally soapy spicy, notes of coriander, nutmeg, a touch of orange zest. Definitely overspiced, and if it wasn’t for the nutmeg...
