KyotoLefty (7339) - Kyoto, - APR 26, 2009
Cloudy golden color with a tall white head. Spicy, yeasty aroma, wheat-like with spices, citrus, a bit of banana. Sweet, spicy flavor of rich golden malt and honey. Rich and flavorful, though rather simple and un-challenging. Good balance, though.

Vighals (1816) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
Brun tåkete med fingerhøyt hvitt tykt skum. Lukter frukt, aprikos, belgisk gjær og noe fudge. Syrlig bitter smak, noe salt og fyldig alkoholsmak. Medium lang ettersmak. Mye kullsyre. Noe oljete

TheCametron (2014) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours Orange with a White head. Very yeasty. Banana and sourish wheat with a pleasant level of sweetness. Fruity citrus. IT’s very nice

thirstyrabbit (1361) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Opaque light golden body, medium to small head. Mildly yeasty aroma with cloves etc. Basic sweet malty/yeasty Belgian ale taste with more cloves and dry spiciness. Tastes like an unfiltered Leffe Blonde probably would, yet, despite this and the higher ABV, feels more watery. Airy and rather empty finish. Straightforward table beer, has no discernible complexity. The "Grand Cru" label is obviously a joke here.

huineman (323) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2015
Hazy pale golden. Pure white long-lasting head. Aroma is intense: bread dough, brioche, porridge, lemon zest. Fills the mouth with a powerful and full body. Persistent, yeast-reminiscent, long finish. Grand.

Alusmamuts (838) - LATVIA - MAY 1, 2015
Amber hazy with medium white head. Intenese taste, quite biiter with some sweetness, remarkable sourness. Spicy notes, incl. coriander.

biirusaikou (981) - - APR 25, 2015
Coriander, yeast, green banana. Orange cake, quite bready, dry apricot, salt and pepper, gentle sweet finish. Alcohol is quite well hidden but somehow not that flavorful compared to the original.

Haterd (54) - NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2015
Lekkere smaak, volgens de fles zou het een perziktint moeten zijn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Much better than the original witbier, although still not very great beer for me
