rlgk (10044) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2007
75 cl bottle. Pale yellow color, nice lasting white head. Citric aroma, some yeast, some fruit and with spicy notes. Fruity flavor, citric, some dough and yeast, quite fresh and quite alot of beer to be only ABV 4.5. Maild fruity finish.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2007
Bottled. Clear golden, rocky head. Citric aroma heavy on coriander. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Fruity and rather intense in flavour for such a light beer - coriander, yeast and lemon peels. This and the sweetness reduces the refreshing qualities, making it more of a low sipper, or something in between the two. No bitterness.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is very big coriander, zest, a lot of other citrusfruits, wheat and some more spices involved. Flavour is coriander, wheat, slight yeast and some grass. A very pleasant thing, that at the same time is very refreshing and full of stuff. One of the better Witbiers I have had.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2007
Aroma: nice, citrus, vaguely smoky, yeasty, hot cloves & allspicelike aroma, sourish, slightly soapy. Nice.
Appearance: plae, amlost opaque icy lemon yellow. Frothy, white head.
Flavour: sourish with a corny sweetness. Nice, light sweet malt aftertaste. Drinkable but very tame.
Palate: wuite ok. Nothing special here. Simple, thin fizzy wit body.

An ok summer beer really. Quite drinkable. I’m not sure whether I like the almost fudgy sweetness though.

Gr0ve (2127) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2007
750 ml bottle. Yellowish white colour. Weakly cloudy, but get much cloudier when pouring the remainings of the bottle. Rich sweet bready citrus aroma. Not that much coriander that one can find in other witbiers. Full flavoured with lots of character. High carbonation level makes it very lively, but still has a rich texture with yeast and bread. A very nice witbier.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2007
Bottle, 75 cl. Pours a perfect wit. I found this to be slightly weak in constitution and lacking body, even for a thirst quenching wit. Wouldn’t mind having it again though.

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2007
(Bottle) Pours golden yellow with green hints. Yeasty, doughy, perfume aroma with spicy notes of coriander and some orange peel and lemon. Other subtle citrus fruits are also present. Tiny floral and maybe a touch of ripe bueberries. The flavour is also yeasty with a citrusy and spicy backdrop of coriander and oranges. Round, soft mouthfeel but a bit to light bodied. Maybe a bit too yeasty overall.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2007
Bottled. Light hazy, golden colour with creamy/cottony head. Yeasty aroma with vague citric tones, where yeast dominates. Flavour is very much of dough and yeast with light citric tones. Body is greater than the role model Hoegaarden. Smooth mouthfeel and no detectable bitterness.

gnoff (7663) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2007
(75 cl bottle from Systembolaget) Shady yellow color with yeast particles, big lasting fluffy white head. Belgian wit mixed with Belgian ale scent, spicy coriander as well. Acidic spicy and some citrus taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
