For Pater Lieven Wit, wheat and oats are used during the brewing process, which give the beer its pale color and cloudy appearance. Pater Lieven Wit is unfiltered. Therefore, it remains cloudy and contains living yeast cells. It is flavored with coriander and orange peel, which provide pleasant fruity and thirst-quenching characters.

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

330ml bottle bought at ICBeer in Kwun Tong.

Looks: Clear light blonde with a thin crust of yeastsediments; Explosive two and a half finger head with long lasting crumpety white foam; Excellent sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant fair malt, with strong wheaty tartness, banana, strong orange peels, strong coriander, floral, strong cinnamon, spices, strong Bel yeast, strong lemon and grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet light malt, with strong wheat, fair tartness, very strong orange peels, strong coriander, light floral, molasses, spices, light bread, strong Bel yeast, light lemon peels, fair to light bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Very smooth and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Light maltyness in an oat-filled smooth background. Slick and quite creamy. Strong wheaty presence but tartness is rather light. Lots of orange peels and coriander which shame other Witbiers easily. Sweetness is also fairly strong but still restrained. Quite spicy and yeasty with light lemon to round. Nice!

Hoppiness: Floral, cinnamon, strong lemon and grass in nose. Light floral, spices, light lemon peels and grass in taste; Bitterness is mid to light for an abrupt, light astringent lemony wheaty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Smooth, spicy and fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one got a gusher-like head, loads of oats for a very smooth body, bliitz of orange peels and corianders, and pretty sharp light lemon hoppiness. Refreshing and tasty, a standout from packs. Will buy again!

Pours honey golden, white thick foam, very good retention. Nose is fruity, elderflower, apricots, orange. Taste is very carbonated and faintly tart / acid plus some faint bitterness. Apples, orange and melon faint bread. Aftertaste is too bitter a some faint off taste.

Hopverdju (710) - BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2016
Troebelbond bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: koriander, citrus en wat sinaasappel. Smaak: fris, wat citrus en iets zoetig. Ik zal waarschijnlijk nooit een witbier fan worden, maar deze behoort bij de betere door de goede balans.

vinivini (1324) - BELARUS - APR 1, 2016
Bottle with 4.5% ABV. Pale yellow, hazy, huge dense rocky white head. Excellent retention. Thick lacing. Nose is wheaty, yeasty, spicy, phenolic. Light body. Oily texture. The taste is similar to the aroma. Semi-dry, light bitterness, moderate spiciness. Medium long hoppy & wheaty finish. Pleasant indeed.

Good appearance thanks to the rich and lasting foam. Smells as one would expect, certainly appealing scent. The taste us by refreshing enough for my likings. Although the used spices seem in order, they are overruled too early by a slightly unpleasant bitterness.

Donkergeel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is fris frutig, koriander en iets van citrus. Heeft een volle diepe smaak.

ciocanelu (1425) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 30, 2015
Hazy yellow with fluffy head. Specific spicy witbier aroma. Taste is very balanced, a bit sweet and fruity at the start and a bit of bitterness in the end. Aftertaste lingers with spicy and wheat flavors. Carbonation is quite high. Overall this is a good example for the style.
