Golden coloured beer, with a decent side head. Mostly sweet, wheat, grain. A sweet touch to the beer. A bit watery.

jmgreenuk (4011) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle from the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light yeast, light banana. The flavour is light sour with a crispy citrus light grapefruit sour palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation. It’s one of those beers for a BBQ.

Good to drink on a hot day. Otherwise it’s a bit plain and unoriginal. Had it all before I guess.

bonkiedeaap (239) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Bottle from the Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a hazy yellow color and a nice white head with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma are tones noticable of wheat, yeast, spices and is a little fruity. The taste is light sweet in the beginning to a little bitter end. Further taste is a little hoppy, herbal and is a little watery. The finish is a dry/sour and a little bitter. A standard white, which I will forget soon, but it’s refreshing and not the worst in his sort.

McWorta (544) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 2, 2014
Lovely frothy medium sized white head, fading after a while. Clear with light haziness in its straw yellow colour. Noses of floral hops, bit hay and herbs. On the palate a lively, tangy texture offers a medium body with a light sweetness and some bitterness showing flavours of grass, hops, malt and herbs with coriander sticking out of that bunch. The finish is a little bit dry and well balanced.

Idiosynkrasie (3586) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2014
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average to huge, foamy, diminishing, white head. Fruity, wheaty aroma, hints of apple, clove. Taste is minimally tart, slightly spicy, wheaty, a touch of apple, orange, subtle sweetness; lively carbonation.

Desverger (1667) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2014
tap@The Black Swan, CPH - pours a slightly fuzzy golden colour, with medium white head. Sweet wheaty and yeasty, lemon fruity notes, some herbal and floral nuances.

Shark_Pants (146) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a cloudy light gold colour with 2 finger head that doesn't last very long or leave any lacing of note. Aromas of lemon, cereal grains, some light spicing. Taste is the same with a very surprising drop off of flavour in the finish, amplified by the thin body. Not a bad Wit but not one of the best in the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Jaune trouble, effervescence moyenne-forte, mousse blanche abondante. Céréales bien présentes, tout comme le citronné ainsi que la coriandre, assez de corps, un rien de houblon. Une bonne blanche.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1590) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle from Rakuten, it poured a cloudy gold with a white head. A typical witbier aroma and flavor profile nice enough but it’s not all that memorable-average for the style.
