Candy like Belgian White. Pez/ Fruit Loops like quality. Thin with sticky finish.

Senka (489) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2014
33cl bottle. Tastes like witbier shandy. Aroma of shampoo and the taste of a tutti-frutti shampoo as well. But this is somewhat good and intriguing. Beer is refreshing, interesting and fun. Not a witbier in its original meaning. I had it several years ago, and remembered it as being more "Hoegaarden with lemonade". Fitted well as a side to ham pizza.

Alors, Louis me reçoit chez lui pour l’anniversaire de sa petite. Il m’ouvre la porte du frigo et m’offre le choix. Je choisi celle-ci. Il est étonné et me traite de feu-fille. C’est ça les cotes... La bouteille est bleue? Alors, elle est belle cette Blanc. Blonde bien trouble à la mousse crémeuse, pratiquement comme une meringue. Le nez est bien étrange, ça sent l’ananas à plein nez, mais de façon artificielle. Il y a certes d’autre odeurs comme le citron et encore-là, ça ressemble à du dessert. C’est plus ou moins épouvantable en bouche. Un gâteau aux ananas renversé, poivré, minéral et citronné, mais tout ça est faux. Première et dernière fois. (1224-060614)

Beertobealive (245) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2014
Short White head with notes of light grapefruit. Clear opaque yellow body. Feels like white beer but tastes like grapefruit juice with less sugar.

chinchill (1894) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
330 ml blue bottle served in a snifter. Aroma: lihtly spicy with a pronounced note of ripe arpicot. Orange and apricot dominate the flavor, with some wheat underneath. Soft lively carbonation nicely complements the medium-light body. O: a soft, French vounterpart to Magic Hat #9

DwarfeD (991) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2014
330ml bottle from local Albert Heijn supermarket. Pale yellow with a full white soapy head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Very present synthetic sweetness with some small bitter tones. Citrus, metallic/acidic tones, yeast and some peach. Way too synthetic to be a good white beer.

Chuckaduck (645) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle. Poured 9/16/14. Cloudy gold with active carbonation and a thick, meringue-like, white head. Aroma is peaches, wheat, Belgian yeast, grass, some spice, very sweet; smells fun. Taste is sweet, tart, peach, slightly creamy, some bread, hay; finish is abruptly dry with a long peach finish. Lacing is dense and throughout. While initially very active, the carbonation is fairly low. Mouth feel is light-bodied. Surprising how enjoyable this is. Crank up the carbonation (maybe even champagne yeast?), get rid of the added caramel color, add coriander, orange peel, and a noticeable hop profile and this would be really nice.

Cimbasso (98) - - SEP 10, 2014
Sampled on draft in a Moscow restaurant. Cloudy light yellow appearance with a good white head. Zesty aromas of wheat, lemon and lime. Taste is rather sweet and uninspiring. Some citrus but also something rather harsh and slightly metallic, perhaps some artificial flavour? Not really enough bitterness, and completely lacking in the banana, coriander or cloves flavour that you would expect from a good wit beer. This beer is industrial, and whilst it is refreshing, it is a pretty poor example of a wit beer.

Steverus0 (181) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Not anything to write home about but refreshing nonetheless Pours hazy gold with light head. Citrus and wheat on the palate with high effervescence and light body, there's lots of carbonation and just no a whole lot of flavor. I'd take it any day over a domestic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Borresteijn (4731) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
33cl Bottle from AH. Thank God I didn’t have to buy a whole 6-pack. Hazy pale yellow colour, dense white head. Looks fine. Aroma is very sweet, artificial, aspartame, orange peel, lime. Flavour is sweet, aspartame, orange peel, coreander, some wheat, sweet finish. Light-bodied, creamy mouthfeel.

Can from French supermarket. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. The lemon and coriander combine to give a distinct grapefruit flavour. Light refreshing and not at all bad.
