Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2011
Pale hazy yellow with a rather small white head. Rather light aroma. Pronounced lemon, some wheat, some yeast. Flavour is light and tart. Quite lemony, rather dry. Rather thin, not the best white, but refreshing. (From tap)

imdownthepub (10243) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2007
Keg on tap, 330ml, pasteurised, sampled at Brasserie America, Valkenburg, NL Limburg. Cloudy pale yellow with little head. This was a sharp, citric Wit, quite dry in character and fairly light on the pallate. Nicely refreshing, lemony, with a brief metallic finish, enjoyed sitting and watching the world go by. Surprised to see it manufactured elsewhere than the local brewery.

DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2007 I like Belgian Whites. This one isn’t bad either although it’s the one I like the least. A decent, but bit of boring aroma and flavor. You won’t hear me complaining when a bar has only this witbier, but I prefer Hoegaarden or Witte Trappist.

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2006
On tap at Zwart, Amsterdam. Milky Witbier. Lightly flavoured, witha hint of water to the lemon. Smooth, with nice carbonation.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2005
(bottle) Hazy yellow colour with a foamy white medium head. Dusty and yeasty wheat malty flavour with lemon peel and shy spicy herbal notes. Malty and fruity taste, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Short and quite thin fruity finish, slightly herbal. Refreshing and clean Wit but unfortunately way too thin.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Greyish orange with a small, compact head. Rather dry without much bitterness. Light-bodied and quenching - a very classical witbier. 120501

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Draft at the LeKlas Grand Cafe Restaurant in the Amsterdam train station. Appearance wa a small milky smooth white head, fair lacing, cloudy, uncarbonated, and a straw yellow hue. Aroma was malty, spicy and mild banana notes. Sweet, malty, banana, and spicy flavor. Decent. Smooth palate. Worth a try.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 15, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 101. This draft brew poured a medium head of finely sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was cloudy and yellow white in color. Its aroma contained mild wit notes with a slight malty banana scent . Its mouth feel is initially tingly and bubbly with biting hops and a smooth hoppy aftertaste. Its flavor contained nice wit malty hoppy notes and was very tasty.

skortila (4511) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2004
Typical, average belgian white. Spicy, yeasty and citrus in the nose. Hazy/cloudy, yellow coloured with a lasting white head. Taste is spicy, citrus, yeasty and wheaty. Decent. But like I said quite average. Refreshing.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2004
Slightly sweet taste. Fresh beer for hot summers. Very nice white beer. Light gold colour.
