Christian (11423) - 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.

A wonderful white. Another example that even though you’re ’big’ doesn’t mean your beer sucks. A powerful fruity aroma with a very nice (white), though fast dissappearing head. The taste is not quite powerful enough, but has a banana flavour and a softness that even few wheat beers are blessed with.

Pinball (11025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2006
(bottle, Bilka Odense) A very good white , the alcohol did not steal the picture, and the taste is light, but with substance anyway. Very refreshing, probably one of the very best of its kind (white ) that i have tasted so far. In one word : refreshing. floral, citrus, herbs, very faint hint of something not totally dissimilar to banana, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness,

imdownthepub (10986) - 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

bierkoning (10800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2002
Strong aroma of honey, yeast, banana an d sweet oranges. Sweet, fruity and spicey taste. Slightly bitter and yeasty finish. Still a good beer, but not as good as 15-20 years ago, when teh brewery was still small and was owned by Celis. In those days the beer was only available irregularly in the Locus Publicus pub in Delft. At its peak, the beer was magic. When Interbrew took over, the beer got a more constant quality. But on the whole the quality diminished slightly, i’m afraid.

Lubiere (10700) - 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

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 Bottle: Cloudy pale yellow colour. Has a aroma of citrus and yeast. Flavour is citrus, banana and some notes of coriander. First time I tried this 3-4 years ago, i hated it. This time I find it quite tasty and refreshing. Nice summer beer.
