chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2009
Bottle, April 2008 tasting. Very cloudy appearance - obviously Iíd expect a Belgian style Wit to be hazy but this was more sludgy. Despite Phil Lís protestations, I didnít really find anything to suggest that this was over the hill. I would probably expect more spice and less farmyard funk from a Wit, but funk isnít a problem for me (even if it is not supposed to be there). Not as arresting or distinctive as some of Panilís other offerings but interesting, and certainly not unpleasant, nonetheless.

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2009
courtesy of fiulijn - pours a cloudy lactic-orange colour under a persistent white foam; fair but not overwhelming aroma of orange peels and coriander; robust but subtle carbonation, some sweetness balanced by a tart acidity, thin to medium malt backbone; very dry and fizzy finish with notes of coriander and citrus - subtle and refreshing

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2010 Handsome foiled bottle from Enoteca Bonatti. Uneven, snowdrift head over fully hazy apricot. Instant Belgian funk, farmyard and sweet manure aroma with cutting lemon and lily- more saison or Westy blond than witbier. Lemony edge, funk, encloaking lily, pig crap, lemon barley. Softening honey-dabbed biscuit and cereals, wheat, sickbowl floaties, barrels. Pleasant and characterful.

ricksivrea (11) - Ivrea, ITALY - JAN 17, 2009
Ottima birra bianca, con schiuma corposa, bianca e persistente. Aroma con sentori di limone e leggermente acidulo Great Yellow Blanche, with a thick creamy white head. Citrus aroma.

Lubiere (10467) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2008
A pale yellow blanche with a thick creamy white head. A pleasant citrus and catnip aroma, homebrew like, but good. In mouth, a crisp catnip wit with light banana notes, a bit muddy, light wild fermentation. Not bad. Bieropholie import, bottle is about 1 year old.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2008
Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet with citrusy and dusty notes of hops. The flavor is sweet citrusy with a light note of acidity, leading to a dry bitter and citrusy finish.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2008
Bottle at Chris_oís The Wolf tasting. Phil_l said it was probably too old to get a rating out of it. To me it had the same problem as some of the other Panil beers. Yes it has some decent sourness, but they really do have to stop putting several hundred yards of wooden fencing in the copper when they do their boil!!!! At least there wasnít any creosote on this one.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris_Oís Ha Ha Ha Ha Gimme the Cheese Tasting.
Phil claimed this wasnít rateable. I pointed out he obviously doesnít know us very well...
:)
Blanche appearance with a thin white head. Minty aroma with that usual hint of enjoyable Panil infected funk. Similar flavour and as Ian so rightly pointed out, "itís got a bit of fence in it."

From bottle, no 14 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy yellow with a lacing white head. Aroma is mild yeasty and slight citric. Flavour holds a dry grassy flavour leading into slight yeasty spiced note. Finish is mild and slight spiced. Decent.
