Boudi (3) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JUN 9, 2015 does not count
color : blond, a wheat field in summer nose : light but pleasant enough ; wheat dryness ; a touch of hop (a kind of dusty apple) palate : thin mouthfeel, fizzy on the tongue. Same as the nose, at the beginning (dusty wheat, a hint of fruit), then... nothing more ! Just fizzy water. No sourness nor bitterness. Dry finish, but still tasteless Very desappointing

Light opaque yellow white with small white lacing foam head. Citrus aroma and taste, just another white beer. (Paris 201411)

Lubiere (11394) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
A hazed blonde wit with a thin white head. In aroma, smooth fruity malt with light acidulated character, not bad. In mouth, a refreshing light wit with faint fruity banana esters, light coriander, OK. Bottle at Le Quincampe. BB 19-11-2015.

brokensail (13761) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Very, very light yellow pour with a white head. Some spice notes of coriander and pepper. Lemony, grassy, and watery. Some honey a bit of straw, and light malt sweetness. The flavor is incredibly bland. Stale bread, water, coriander, and straw. Lemon, a bit of grass, and maybe a hint of honey. Needs more camel.

emacgee (4428) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Very interesting beer. My guess is there was way more yeast pitched in this beer than was necessary. The nose reminds me of a yeast starter or liquid yeast. Pours pale cloudy white with two fingers of white, loose, rocky, sticky head. Nose is very yeasty and bready, raw bread dough and a touch of acidity. Earthy, barny, slight ester content, and a touch of citrus. Smells like a yeast starter. Very light flavor with a touch of acidity. Kind of ’feety’ and bready. Strange. Lively carbonation and grassy finish.

altonbrownd (4376) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle in Paris resto. Golden yellow body with nice soapy head. Nose citrus, sprightly. Taste is also citrus and faint bananas. Pretty good but not overpowering enough for my tastes.

fiulijn (16659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from la Cave à Bulles, Paris
Cloudy pale blond color with medium sized, persistent head. It’s a light bodied beer, where the aroma and flavor show a strong character of cereals, bread and baking yeast; it’s dry with correct bitterness.
I had better low alcohol beers, but we can’t say this is too bad.

Quack-Duck (8862) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2012
bottle from Cave a Bulles Paris. Cloudy, extremely pale yellow, large white head, very persistent. Wheaty and yeasty, slightly fruity, very light-bodied indeed. Not over-carbonated, just right. Refreshing light beer that, in my opinion, is closer to a German Leichtweizen than to a witbier.
