Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 22, 2013
THOUGHTS: A true classic. The inspiration for countless beers. A wonderful thirst quencher. Lots of flavor in a little beer. Nice session beer from long before the term was popular. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a murky, light, milky yellow with an average, white head that kept a nice sheet and left fair lacing. The aroma contained moderate wheat; plenty of coriander; lemon and oranges. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, slightly sour, and heavily acidic. There was wheat, oranges, and coriander. The light to medium body was creamy with rather fizzy carbonation and dry and lightly astringent finish.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 Butelka 750ml z datą ważności do14.02.2017 temperatura degustacji 12 stopni+, szkło teku. Aromat: podbudowa słodowa delikatnie miodowa, nuty skňrki pomarańczy z delikatnym bananem w tle który wraz z ogrzewaniem się piwa zyskuje na mocy, delikatna ziołowość trochę pieprzowa, kolendry brak. Piana: biała, średnia, drobno pęcherzykowa, zbita, średnio trwała. Barwa: słomkowo-mleczna , równomiernie mętne. Smak: cytrusowy,wytrawny z kwaskowatym finiszem,delikatna ziołowość, goryczki praktyczne brak. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego,średnia pełnia, pijalne, orzeźwiające. Trochę paradoks,człowiek który wskrzesił styl robi całkiem dobre piwo jak na konceniaka niestety w stylu średnie ( wg mnie bliżej mu do Hefeweizen),nie łapie się nawet w pierwszej pięćdziesiątce na ratebeer w stylu gdzie aż dwa Polskie piwa są w pierwszej dziesiątce, a aż osiem w pierwszej pięćdziesiątce.Póki co mój nr 1 to Wit z Kormorana .

UXO (1255) - CANADA - APR 30, 2016
Appearance: cloudy opaque pale gold with one finger of fine off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin cap, minimal patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: orange peel, coriander, yeasty wheat, floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart, light peppery spice. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, short duration lightly tart and spicy finish. (4/5) A classic that I’ve had many times, yet somehow never reviewed. And they served it in a bucket-sized glass so what’s not to like? (Honestly, it was a jug without a handle! It almost took two hands for me to drink from it when it was full! Ok, ok, I know it’s just thick glass - but it’s still impressive.) Serving size aside, it’s a pretty reliable mass-market standard. Light, easy to drink (though you might need to use both hands!) and probably the standard against which witbiers are measured. No complaints here. (16/20)

commonmac (901) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2016
UPDATED: APR 27, 2016 Bottle at Kitty Kat Klub on the U of M campus before Frightened Rabbit show at Varsity. Cloudy yellow/orange appearance. Aroma has wheaty characteristics with some light coriander and citrus. Taste is pretty mild with a citrus quality running throughout. Refreshing in general. Bready characteristics and flavor present. Easy to drink. One of the first "go-to" beers I can remember and still tastes very approachable. People should steer towards this instead of Blue Moon for this style.

AdolfoCC (97) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 21, 2016
Servida en vaso Hoegaarden. APARIENCIA: de color pajizo, se observa ligeramente turbia y moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma blanca de buena retención, de burbuja muy compacta. AROMA: notas a pan y plátano del trigo es lo que predomina, además de ligeras notas cítricas y algo de dulzor. SABOR: el paladar sigue al aroma; notas a pan y plátano del trigo, ligero dulzor atrás de eso, notas cítricas muy leves y cierto gusto a agua mineral; el retrogusto queda con un amargor muy ligero, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero, carbonatación media alta y que se siente el crispar en lengua. RESUMEN: una buena cerbeza refrescante y ligera de acuerdo al estilo.
