COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Venloosch Wit (White) is a top-fermented beer with a hazy, slightly yellowish colour, brewed by a special recipe of our own, in which wheat is used as a basic ingredient, besides the usual barley malt. This refreshing beer has an alcohol content of 5% by volume. A beer for all seasons, but of course it is especially in demand in summer because of its refreshing lemon taste.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein zitrusgelbes Bier mit starker Trübung, und sehr langlebiger feinporiger Krone. Der Geruch ist spritzig hefig, dezent säuerlich. Das Wit startet dominant hefig säuerlich, sehr erfrischend und insgesamt doch sehr mild und süffig. Leider schwächt es im Verlauf ein wenig ab und wird leicht wässrig. Schade drum, denn eine gute Basis ist allemal vorhanden!

20110605 Home (30 cl bottle): A slightly cloude yeollow-coloured beer with od nic godd white head. The aroma is malty/wheat, some spicy, corinader-like sweetness and some yeast ("parfum-like"). The taste starts a little sweet, than an litter citrus-like sour and a small bitter in the aftertaste. Also some wheat and maybe coriander in the taste. A somewhat malty beer.

thewolf (11254) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Tap, someplace in Amsterdam.
Pours hazy pale yellow with a small, staying, creamy, white head. Becomes a thin film. Very soft aroma, sweet wheat and a hint of lemons. Highish carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit weak as well, but not bad. Light sweetness, a touch grainy with light spice and lemons. Okay, but a little too weak on all accounts.
