Haacht White is an unfiltered, top-fermented, light wheat beer. It is brewed with barley malt, wheat malt and unmalted wheat. The beer gains its spicy aroma from the addition of coriander and orange zest. The top-fermentation process produces brief fruity notes. The sensation in he mouth is somewhat fuller than one would suspect from its density. This is caused by the presence of yeast cells and protein that together create a slight cloudiness.

Nicely hazy yellow, white head. No aroma. Taste is very plain, a little citrus and some wheat graininess. Watery body, medium carbonation. Refreshing...like water.

250ml bottle at home. Pours hazy yellow, short lived white head. Bready, slightly sour aroma. Taste has light spice, bready malt. Faint citrus. Ok.

Bue en bouteille. Mauvaise bière blanche sans aucun intérêt... Certainement une des plus mauvaises bières que j’aie goutées.

Draught and the Bund brewery in Shanghai. Hazy yellow color. Thin white ring head. Decent banana aroma. Good bite. Good banana taste. Good beer. Not sure what the others aren’t seeing in this one.

Mild earthy banana aroma. Very sour green banana flavor, sweet lemon, dry finish. Weird artificial aftertaste, definitely not up to par with all the classic Belgian white brews.

Below average industrial witbeer. Very nice cloudy appearance is promising but tastes too short with hints of chemically produced lemons.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 bread, cereal, dough, banana, amber, hazy, white foam, lightly sour, light body, astringent. Smells rather lovely, like banana bread. Pleasing hazy amber color, but fairly dirty. Tastes astringent and artificial, not at all what you would expect from first inspection. Disappointing.

25 cl. bottle @ Derby in Ekeren. Ah the base beer for their craptastic line of fruit beers. Pours pretty hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Taste is heavy on sweet wheat, white sugar, white bread, fells rather fake with lots of sweet lemon but not like real lemons, sweet yeast & cornbread. Creamy wheat mouthfeel. Bit odd with the sweet lemon & artificial feel but not bad too drink actually. Definitely more enjoyable than the pretty bad “kriek” version or the reprehensibly horribly “lime” version. Industrial but not entirely off-putting. There are no offensive flavours in here at least.
