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.

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.

Bottled. Poured a light golden yellow color with a medium sized head consisting of large bubbles which quickly dissipated and left no lacing. It smelled like bananas, tasted like bananas and was like every other Belgian beer I've ever had.
