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 (2177) - 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 (3054) - 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 (3846) - 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.

(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.

ekstedt (5992) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle, 75 cl. Pale cloudy yellow, with medium fluffy white head. Fruity and spicy aroma, with bananas, coriander and orange peels. Light to medium bodied, good carbonation. Well balanced and refrshing.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle, 75cl. Hazy, pale yellow colour with a large white head. Spicy aroma with notes of citrus, dark berries, rose pepper & cookies. Light fruity flavour with a finish of more dark berries, quite nice!

A smell of bread yeast and a taste of fruit beers make this beer a rather good white bier
