Bottled@The Chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011 "Donkey Dork Lord Edition". Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wheat, some grass and mild yeasty notes. Flavour is being quite similar. Quite standard Belgian Wit, with no big surprises.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with a small head. Hints of grass on the nose, light wheat. Mild spice flavor, some sugar. Kind of bland. Light bodied with average carbonation. Very faint yeast to finish, light sugar. Just alright.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2011
Aroma of flowers, orange and wheat. It looked cloudy yellow with a thin white head and had lacing on the glass. Tasted orangey with a hint of spice and it was fairly smooth.

Gethinbeer (2173) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2011
Hazy yellow colour. Lively carbonation which creates a frothy white head. Citrus coriander, yeast aroma. Thin body. Refreshing beer but lacks full flavour.

suprchunk (2266) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Cloudy light straw color. White head - small. Little to no lacing left behind. Citrusy. Little wheat aroma. Otherwise pretty muted. There is something there that is a bit hard to place, but unpleasant. Slight clove. Phenols. Wheaty. But the unpleasant aroma makes it appearance in the taste, and is not any better on the tongue. Smooth, but thin. A little sourness in the aftertaste. Not bad. But could be way better. I guess Huyghe saves the good brewing for their own beer.
