Cloudy yellow. Citrusy aroma. Youghurt notes in the flavour. Not a very interesting beer.

Nice & smooth - however, this is a girl's drink, which is perhaps why it's called "troublette;" because girls are so much trouble.

Cloudy yellow in color with a huge head that took quite a while to disappear. Sweet citrus aroma, wheaty and dry taste with a slightly hoppy finish. Nothing special. Kept me burping for a while.

The label didn't say wit, but the aroma spoke volumes. Nice tart, fruity aroma. Cool label, contemplative after a few beers. Solid, fizzy wit flavor -- fruit, zest and mild spices along with lots of musty yeast. Good fizz. Nice slug of sediment on the side of the bottle. Medium-light mouth, medium finish with mild tartness and a lot of CO2.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Contents under pressure! The cork flew off this bottle and nearly caused me a mild stroke. Cloudy honey colored with a big snow white head(not the Disney character). This brew had a terrific aroma of orange, coriander and possibly lemon. Flavor was a bit of a let down though and really didn't match the nice aroma I was getting. A bit sour maybe and the wheat malts weren't as fresh tasting as say the Allagash that I love so much. Overall, not a bad Wit. Just not outstanding.

This Belgian White really reminded me of the Witkap Pater Singel I tried over the summer. Biting, lemony aroma. Body is very cloudy banana orange-yellow, with plenty of yeast sediment. Flavor is lemony, sour, and tangy. Decidedly different for a Witbier. Refreshing.

hazy light golden, no lacing, but there was a little sheeting. aroma mainly of spice(coriander and cardamom) and cardboard, maybe a hair of yeast and citrus, but hardly worth mentioning. flavor has more depth and body than i expected, at least more full a mouthfeel than the average wit. definitely more citrus in the flavor...thought this a pretty fine wit myself.

This soft yellow beer is cloudy, and sprots a thin white head. Orange peels and corriander are evident in the nose. While a tingling corriander/lemon flavor hits the tounge. The end of this beer is a bit astringent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Soft cloudy yellow. Yeast particles visible. Aroma has some clove, lemon, banana, spices, and a big coriander presence. Thick citrus juice taste and flavor, washes over the tongue and erodes and tingles the tastebuds, finally leaving you a little bland, but the finish is quite nice, coasting your mouth with citrus syrup. Lost to Vuuve in tonights tasting, but beat St. Bernardus.

Very nice. I normally would not be turned on by a Belgian Wheat, but htis one was quite delicate, which is saying something considering that I know that it could not have been handled "delicately" on its way to Texas.
