Leighton (18711) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2011
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.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2010
500ml bottle from M&S at St Pancras. Hazy pale gold, thick white head. A little too soapy on the aroma, over a lemon and spicy nose. Soap takes it away from being a decent wit cos the rest is very good. Touch of mango and passion fruit on the finish.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at home, from M&S Camberley, 25/12/13. Pale golden with a thin off white covering that dissipates to pondwork. Nose is lemon rind, corriander, citric fruit zest, spice, faint caramel notes. Taste comprises orang peel, lemon zest, corriander, spice, straw. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, crisp refreshing finish with sweet notes. Absolutely fine for the style!

500ml bottle (M&S)
Slightly beeny aroma. Cloudy yellow. Quite full splicy wit. No sharpness from citrus, alas, but quite a tingle of spices. Passable.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from M&S Summertown, Oxon. Clouded pale yellow with white head. Certainly a pretty authentic Belgian Wit, spicy with banana, estery flavours, it’s like many of this type, initially flavoursome but becomes overbearing in the end.
