MoritzF (9360) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2012
(bottle, 75cl) Clear, pale golden colour with an unstable frothy white head. Mildly sweet and slightly sour wheat-malty aroma with notes of white bread, citrus and a bearable touch of coriander spice. Delicately sour flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Present wheat-character with mildly fruity and spicy notes; the latter getting slightly stronger towards the finish. 10.X.12

750 ml bottle. HHOKX. From France.
Hazy yellow golden colour with small white head. Sweet candy, bubblegum and sour lactic acidity in aroma. Flavour is tart with mild sourness, mild fruitiness and mild wheat. Thinnish. Not quite similar to Belgian Witbiers.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle, courtesy harrisoni. Hazy straw colour with a fluffy white head. Unimpressed with the aroma - more cereal than I’d expect from a wit and some cardboardy notes. Not very clean. Better on the palate with some peppery, spicy notes and a touch of citrus. Quite tart finish. Drinkable but nothing special.

Bottle at Chris_O’s, courtesy of Harrisoni. Opaque pale gold with a thin white head. Fresh soapy, citrus nose. Fruity citrus and wheat flavour with a slightly bitter finish. Quite gassy and generic.
