Fatehunter (2206) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a Belgium "satan" glass. It almost looked white during the pour, but then as it settled down it became a light yellow color but still not transparent. An inch and a half head of bigger foam bubbles formed. After a couple minutes the head broke down to just some lace around the edge. It smells like a toned down wiezenbier. Ripe banana, peach and a hint of lemon. Very noticeable but by no means overpowering. Tastes almost like it smells. But there is a sparkling water taste, which does not really have a taste to it. Moderate Carbonation, crisp, light and refreshing. A nice drink for the hot days. Subtle flavors. It is not a personal favorite of mine, but it is supposedly the "original Belgian Witbier". How can you not like the original?

Cerveja suave com toque refrescante no fundo. O aroma é pouco trabalhado mas o paladar compensa. Vale a pena provar.

Banksiz (89) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Light coriander-orange nose, spritzy, fizzy with a wheat snap. Dry, light body. Bitterness just right--no harshness or bitter aftertaste. A nicely balanced, refreshing summer beer. Pierre Celis got this style just right.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Samea, vaaleankeltainen olut kohtalaisella, valkoisella pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Hiivainen, aavistuksen mausteinen ja sitruksinen tuoksu. Maussa ennen kaikkea sitruunaa ja viljaisuutta. Raikas janonsammuttaja, mutta ei juuri muuta.
