Flesje thuis gedronken. Bleek gelig bier. Heftig schuimend. Geur van bloemen. Smaak is plat. Weinig nasmaak.

As Leireken Witte Spelt. Typical Belgian blanche pour, hazy, light yellow, lasting head. A: medium sweet malts, metal note, fresh grain note,citrus fruits, light cilantro, faint soapy note. T: nice malty grainy taste, light cilantro returns, some orange peel as well. Light to medium bitter development with notes of hay. Sweet malts in finish, towards biscuit even. Not bad.

Robe blonde claire, peu de mousse. Un nez assez discret sur des notes de céréales et une légère pointe d’agrumes. Bouche fraîche et élégante, courte mais très digeste et raffraîchissante. Une bière de soif, une bière d’été.

MrHangover (3935) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle @ tasting. Pours a hazy golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma of sweet nothing, mostly grainy stuff and not much else. Flavor is light sweet and watery. Incredibly boring, uninteresting and dull. Almost no finish and very undercarbonated. Just a tick.

kermis (9999) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to Deanso. Pours very hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of coriander, light spice, wheat, yeast and light fruit. Flavour is above light sweet and bitter. Light to light medium bodied with light carbonation.

33cl bottle from Natuur, Antwerp. Thin creamy white head. Hazy light golden pour. Ok. Not my favourite style of beer.

kajser27 (1357) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 8, 2015
Pale yellow colored, floaters, almost no white head, instantly gone. Aroma is like a very watery Wit, weak coriander, spice and orange peel, bit soury. Taste is low sweet wheat, coriander, some sugary notes, yeast, bit of orange peel, slight acidity. Light+ bodied, watery texture, fizzy. (bottle, Leireken Bistro, Steenhuffel, B)

Ook te verkrijgen in de Bio-planet, ook veel bezinksel op de bodem, maar wel lekker om te drinken.

Alengrin (4519) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Spelt beer in this series, intended to represent the ’witbier’ style but as a specialty grain, also tasted as Leireken Witte Spelt. Witbier-like with snow white, frothy head and golden blonde colour; fruity and yeasty, grainy, sweetish with the typical (but faint) spicy sourishness of spelt, weak citrussy touches. All in all a bit simple for this type of beer, but with a very high drinkability.
