Botella. Copa Túlipa. Saboreada en agt´11. Color pajizo pálido. Corona blanca, túpida, de burbuja pequeña. Buena retención. Aromas de levadura, cítrico fresco, notas de vainilla,especias y matices de corteza de pan. Entrada de naranja chispeante. Dulce y especiada con limón en el intermedio. Cuerpo y carbonatación medios. Final de amargo seco con toques de melón. Notas de naranja y frutas en el retrogusto. Refrescante y bien equilibrada tanto en aromas como sabores. Buen ejemplo del Estilo Belga de Trigo. Comentario: servir el último trago con los sedimentos de levadura y mostrará un intenso sabor a naranja y mandarina. Bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoye don agt´11.Pale straw color. Foggy. White, small sized bubbled, dense crown. Retention is good. Yeast & fresh citric, vanilla notes, bready crust hues & spices to the nose. Funny orange zest upfront. Sweet & peppery.Lemony in the middle. Medium body, medium carbonation. Melon touch & dry bitter finish. Orange hint & fruity aftertaste. Refreshing. Nice spot of the Wit style. Well balanced both flavors & aromas.Comment: last drop served with yeast sediments will show an intense orange flavor.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle, 75cl at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. It pours a yellowish golden, hazy body, topped by a nice white head. Fruity and spiced aroma, with some pale malt blending in. Really pleasant. The flavor was even more inviting, with the same fruit and spice found in the aroma, as well as a citrusy flavor. Malty as well. Medium full mouthfeel and a citrusy finish. Easy to drink, refreshing and just lovely. (080410)

eManu (441) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2009
Wow this beer came out strong, that beer was still alive and kicking, lots of foam. Pours a hazy amber with a huge white head that did not stay long. Aroma of citrus fruits and malts. Flavors is hoppy with lots of citrus with lemons and some peach. Some yeast and spices. Lots of carbonation and with a creamy texture in mouth. Lost of complex nice flavors and refreshing, easy and nice to drink.

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.

thewolf (11114) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Randers Vinhus.
Hazy pale yellow with a smallish, firm, frothy, white head. Aroma has banana sweetness, lemony zest and a fair sweet malty background. Highish carbonation, fine light grainy mouthfeel. Flavour is malty sweet, some wheat character, fine grassy bitterness and a very pronounced lemon zest feel to the finish. Very refreshing wit - actually very good.
