minutemat (1373) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml bottle drunk on a train. Straight after popping you can smell the familiar orange / coriander Huyghe aroma. Not as strong as Delirium at 4.5% but still packed with a fair amount of taste. The orange peel here is kind of tangy and really lingers on the tongue but still, compared to the beer M&S used to put out this is impressive.

spacecube (760) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
500ml bottle from M&S, pours hazy golden orange with a foamy white head. It has solid belgian wit flavours of sweet malt, corainder and orange peel. Finish is crisp, carbonation lively. Decent wit, very solid.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle from Fosse. Typical pale haze with a tight collar. Creamy but alive with a light prickle of carbonation. Lemon sherbet and meringue aroma with a hint of metal; lemon barley dominates in the mouth, with a pleasing dose of pepper over the top. Standard issue, tasty wit.

DanielBrown (3717) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle from M&S, Thurmaston, Leics. Looks lovely - hazy banana colour, with creamed head. Smells slightly muted, with bananam raincoat and citrus. Rather sweet, with a jumble of flavours, some of which work better than others. The fruit is rather mushed and the sweet puddingness is a bit cloying. Very faint vomit notes. 7 or 8 years ago, the witbeer that M&S sold was a lot better than this.
