COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2011
Bottled, thanks Wim & Els! Cloudy yellow, small head. Aroma of coriander, lemon and boiled vegetables. Sweetish with clean, hard mouthfeel. Wheat malt and orange peels. Edgy with surprisingly low drinkability.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 6/II/13 - 33cl bottle @ Het Verdronken Land (Gent) - BB: n/a (2013-139)

Cloudy pale yellow beer, creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: spicy, coriander, little metallic, grassy, hay, bit of grains. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: pretty sour, lemony, some vinegar, wheat sourness, grains, grassy, bit sugary (strange enough). Aftertaste: sour, lemony, vinegar, overripe fruits, bit sweet, mainly sour, some vomit, unpleasant.

Countbeer (4397) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle: Medium to bigger vast white head, disappears slow on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Smell wheat, light lemon, hints of dishwater, hint of vanilla, light sweaty and some corn. Taste lemon, light citrus, wheat, corn, hint of hops, malts, light bitter and lighter sweets, some herbs, hint of vanilla. Soft, smooth and light creamy. Aftertaste is light and disappears fairly quick; wheat, grass, some light forest herbs, a light bitterness, and some floral herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Decent beer.

77ships (3737) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2013
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.

erickok (3514) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 10, 2013
Hazy light yellow body and white head. Citric, dry and white bread. Acidic taste, dry, hopless, metallic. Not sure if it’s supposed to be so metallic. I don’t like it much. Texture is okay though. (Tasted from Pau’s liter pint, on tap at Académie de la Bière)

Grzesiek79 (3182) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Dobre jak na belgijski wit. Piana mocna i do końca picia pozostaje w szklanicy. Lekko zmętnione jasne piwo. Skórka pomarańczy wyczuwalna wyraźnie. Piwo idealnie pasowało do piersi kurczaka w śmietanowym sosie
