COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Witbier or White Beer is pale golden, tart, refreshing Belgian style wheat beer that is cloudy in appearance with a fine white head. It is a light flavoured beer with low bitterness. One of the world's oldest styles of beer, Hunter Witbier had classic coriander and bitter orange peel flavours with a clean dry finish. The crisp zing comes from the wheat and the lovely level of carbonation, making it the perfect summer beer. Although the brewer might not agree Witbier can also be served with a slice of fresh lemon to enhance the citrus character. Terrific with lightly spiced seafood and most Thai dished and heaven with cheese! Alcohol content of 4.6% Alc/Vol.

Muggus69 (1198) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
Draught at Brewery Hazy almost white straw body, creamy white head atop. Good intensity nose; sweet & savoury spice, citrus peel, phenolic spice. Light body, lively carbonation, some acidity, very dry. Delivers a good balance of coriander seed spice, orange, wheaty cereal malts, with a mild bitterness on a drying finish. Not usually my cup of tea, but tasty.

I had this on tap at the brewery. Pours very cloudy, like any decent Belgian white. Taste of orange peels comes through and the finish is nice and crisp.

750ml bottle bought direct from the brewery. I'm just updating my records. A decent version of a witbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Tasting sample poured hazy yellow with a small white head. Citrusy aroma and flavour with a touch of spice. Some sourness is coming through as well that let’s this one down.

kenbeer (46) - , AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2008
Nice white beer full of lemon, vanilla and spice. The head wasnt fantastic but otherwise it looked good in the glass. Tangy in the mouth but still had a creamy finish. Good beer but not cheap for a beer of this strength.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2008
Draught at potters. Arrived an extremely pale yellow with a creamy white head which lasted very well. Aroma was of wheat, cloves, vanilla and faint honey. Flavor was basic but well balanced with some wheat, dried bananas and hints of vanilla. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, watery texture, creamy mouthfeel and a short finish.

Another light malty backbone with a straightforward flavor profile. Coriander and Orange peel. Unexciting.
