mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2004
Bottle. White and hazy in appearance with a large white fluffy head (mainly because I poured it half-assed). spicy, lemony aroma. Different from than the other whites I’ve tried, but not necessarily in a bad way. Mouthfeel is acidic and a very dry finish. Not entirely flavourful, most of the aspects of this beer are fairly subtle.

Boutip (5588) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2004
Bottle: Poured a quite clear golden beer with a huge thick foamy head with good retention. Aroma was midly sweet probably from orange peels that were added to this beer. Taste was quite refreshing with again some sweetness (apricot?) and some wheat. Carbonation was OK and body a bit thinner then expected. Overall, this is not a bad wit but could be a bit more balanced with less of the wheat taste.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Big thick head, nice and cloudy. Lightly spiced aromawith a hint of wheat. Orange comes through just enough to be noticed in the body. A nicely balanced wit.

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2004
330ml bottle thanks yo frink. Hazy effervescent pale yellow. Spectacular huge rocky, frothy white head, mountainous and very long-lasting. Very expressive wheat invades the nostrils, more lemon than most, mild coriander. Palate is moderately tart containing generous lemony peaks, tart appleskin tones, herbal lemongrass, creamy orange zest. Dry finish, lively carbonation, airy body. Different witbier, quite interesting.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2004
Bottled - bought at Evening Star Brighton. A very light golden colour but not particularly hazy. The aroma is very floral and perfumy. The taste is sweet and almost medicinal. A nice beer.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2004
750ml bottle, 11/2002 vintage. Malty, lightly honeyish and fruity aroma, prominent notes of citrus including lemon and orange, very faint spiciness. Light-medium cloudy yellow color, with a hugely frothy, settling head. Tart, citric and fruity flavor profile, lots of yeast character, some light tropical fruitiness and slight sweetness late, with a spicy, gently acidic finish. Very effervescent. Body is light and airy, the palate bubbly and refreshing. Not a bad example of the style.

PhillyBeer2112 (2710) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Light hazy yellow. Spice in the nose, tiny amounts of clove and pepper. Lighter in the mouth, with clean wheaty malts. Dry finish. Overall one of the cleaner versions of a wit but nice enough and drinkable.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Quite drinkable, but thin even with the yeast pour. Nothing too much going on in the flavor beyond some anise spiciness, vaguely sweet. No fullness of flavor or body, but still OK. Good for a Wit fix.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Hazy light gold. Nose weizen-ish, banana, fruit, wheatiness. Flavor is off, possibly infected? Is a mite funky and sour, not particularly yeasty. Carbonation shot. May have to retry later.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2004
750 ML bottle: Hazy golden straw w/ a lasting white head, laces well. Floral, plum, clove aromas @ first: wheat malt, some orange peel; coriander gets stronger as it warms, lightly peppery. Flavor is spicy yeast, wheat malt, well balanced; cloves and lightly tart acidity, some plum fruit, seems to have no orange or coriander in the flavor. Finish is dry w/ a plum aftertaste. Dry prickly m/f, highly carbonated as it should be. A lot of complexity for a Wit, probably more than I expected, but this is a very good beer! Great for summer time heat.
