Nice blanche, not lambic. Unclear light yellow with white head. Nice aroma of coriander, gum and fruit. Light sweet and smoot but too drinkable and fresh.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2004
Draught at La Mort Subite Cafe, Brussels. Cloudy Wit beer - absolutely delicious! Perfectly balanced, refreshing lemony/chalky flavour, with an unusual but highly satisfying soured finish. Exceptionally good.

sarauckelman (420) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
Thick foamy head, smells (and tastes) like bananas (but in a good way). Palate is extremely creamy, unlike any beer I’ve had before. Not too sour even though it’s a lambic. Had this at the Bierfestival in the Martinikerk, Groningen; thumbs up!

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2004 Witte lambic holds the middle between a Belgian witbeer and a lambic, being a wheatbeer... It exists on draught only.Colour: pale-aleish. Thick white head. Nose of nutmeg, wheat, coriandre and some citrus. Taste is coriander, wheat, lactic acid and a lemony, perfumed flavour. Aftertaste is more lemonrind and coriander, the mouthfeel being prickly but not fizzy.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Draft. Golden pour with white head. Berry, peach, and light aromas. Flavor and body are light. Sweet but not overly. Nice wit.

bytemesis (6977) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Tap. Pours cloudy golden, small white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is sweet and fruity, with notes of yeast and wheat. Slightly sweet fruity flavor dominated by apple, Belgian yeast, and wheat. Light bodied and creamy on the palate. Overall a nice easy drinking beer; better in my opinion than its rating.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Tap flight at House of Beer. Mildly hazy light yellow-gold pour. Bright white foam head. Strong aroma of fresh cut peaches. Taste is peach, apricot, papaya, and spicy wheat malt. Hint if corriander remains in the mouth. Creamy mouthfeel for the style.

When in Brussels, do as the "Brusseleirs" do: go for a "blanchke" (a white) in "La Mort Subite" (Sudden Death). The café itself may attract more tourists than locals these days, but it has kept its authenticity despite this. Very accessible, a good introduction to lambics. Maybe not the best of this style, but that doesn’t mean thisn’t a good beer, far from it. Opaque golden-straw, you’ll have to be fast to catch any sight of a fast dwindling hald inch of foam (I really can’t call this a head). Lemony smell and taste, nice balance of sweet and sour, little of the bitters. Quite fruity even, but luckily there’s the yeasty tones to counter that sufficiently as to not make this an alcoholic lemonade. Very nice quick thirst quencher, very drinkable.

Pyobon (1315) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2008
Draught. Cloudy yellow with off-white head. Lemon aroma with pear drops. Light body with medium carbonation. Lemon dominates the flavour but with some reasonable bitterness and hints of pear drops, banana and yoghurt. Nice, balanced, unusual, refreshing beer that goes down easily.

7th March 2010. Hazy pale gold beer with a little soft white head that tastes liek cream soda. Lovely nose of pineapple cube sweets and mango. Light semi dry palate. Soft fruity beer with pineapple and mango following through from nose to taste. Some vanilla cream as well. Memorable and unusual beer.
