FatPhil (13312) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2010 330ml bottle (Mallaskukko, Turku)
Cloudy wheaty yellow. Characteristic blanche aroma - wheat, citrus, coriander. Ditto taste. First taste is delicious, but the lack of details makes it become bland over time. Was much better a few decades back, I’m sure.
Rerate: Bottle. 2010 - took off 1 taste and 2 overall, as it was bland right from the start.

Draft. Poured a Milky amber with a medium white head that lasted. Aroma was a sweet with a citrus tone. Flavor was refreshing and light with a short finish. Drinkable as a brew lemonade.

Pleasant Wit. Sweet but not cloying. Much better as it warms up.

imdownthepub (12917) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2003
Draught at Vlissinghe, Brugge. Plenty of flavour still from the trendsetting Whitbeer. The corianer, citrus is a little overwhelming for m taste but nevertheless a decent afternoon sampler

Benzai (12776) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011
Overall still one of the best whitebeers I’ve tasted so far, though it’s quite an average taste. Very nice smell and good color for a white.

Lubiere (12702) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2005
250 mL bottle from Switzerland. Really hazy pale yellow Wit with thick creamy lacing white head. Nice lemon and light spices in aroma. Lemon comes out too in mouth, with fresh wheat and coriander notes. This is so classic! I like the 250 mL format. a good dieter’s portion...hehehe

Christian (12623) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Light, cloudy yellow beer with a very white head. Fruity, slightly smoked aroma, some spice, some lemon. Sweet and easy-to-drink with a hint of tartness.
