MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Smells of meat to me. Very slightly citric and VERY wheaty. The flavour is also wheaty, with all the grains very pronounced. The palate is quite full and impressive.

A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
No idea where this one popped up from and part of me wishes it had stayed wherever it was. A fruity, cardboardy white bier. Very pale yellow. Shite. Drain pour.

Bottled. Thanx oh6gdx! Hazy pale yellow in colour. Bubbly white head, lacings. The aroma is wheaty and white wine like. Coriander is present as well. The flavour is spicy and sweet. Some wheat, some herbs and together they makd a breath taking combination. There is a sweetness and a seed like sensation in the atertaste.

rlgk (13177) - Göteborg, 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 (20923) - 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 (22398) - 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.
