Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Surprisingly nuanced for a double witbier. The aroma is quite mellow and nice; citrus peel and funky wheaty tanginess. The flavor is slightly bitter, slightly-to-moderately sour, with slight sweetness. Easy to drink. Lovely very light yellow color. Head is retained fairly well. On tap.

CanCrusher (596) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Hazy golden colour with small, creamy, white head. Aroma of wheat, orange peel, coriander and citruses. Taste starts light bitter and fruity with apple and orange, while finish is moderate bitter. There is also some acidity inbetween, but only for sample. Medium to full body and soft carbonation. Different and unusual witbier...

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of ElDesmadre, shared with CanCrusher. Hazy pale golden color with small creamy white head with floating yeast traces. Aroma of wheat, coriander, orange peel, lemon and yeast. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, follows by fruity, vinous and herbal acidity with medium bitter finish, which is welcoming benefit to common witbier. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Unusual, but certainly improved witbier...

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2014
courtesy of Julien Allen - cloudy dark blond beer with a solid white foam; aroma of cardamom, wheat and oranges; full-bodied, pretty sweet and lively palate; residual sugars in a very fruity and light estery finish

Ladybirri (17) - - JUN 20, 2014
Sin duda sobreestimada cerveza, una cerveza de trigo con un aroma a oxidación, se hace pesada en el paladar. Demasiados ésteres, poca presencia de lúpulo y nada refrescante. Mediocre.

beleggor (50) - Wrocław, POLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Pite zarówno w wersji lanej jak i butelkowej. Kolor złoty, delikatnie zmętniony, piana średniowysoka, trwała, ładnie oblepia szkło. W aromacie bardzo bogato - przyjemne aromaty cytrusów od amerykańskiego chmielu mieszają się z aromatem skórki pomarańczowej oraz kolendry, do tego lekka słodowa ciasteczkowość. W smaku słodycz kontrowana jest bardzo przyjemną, wyraźną ale nie zalegającą cytrusową goryczką. Wysycenie optymalne. Piwo bardzo orzeżwiające, gaszące pragnienie, ekstremalnie pijalne.

Some may consider it a bit too much of everything - I don’t, I like it that way, but be vary of that it is a far cry from regular witbier. It is sweeter, spicier, hoppier, perhaps also more aromatic than most of the wits I tried. I find the taste very agreeable, although its intensity makes it somewhat difficult to get used to.

Bogata biała piana, barwa złota, przymglona. W smaku wyczuwalne aromaty pomarańczy, kolendry, po kilku łykach pojawiają się nuty pszeniczne. Orzeźwiające, słodkie w smaku. Goryczka delikatna. Bardzo dobre piwo na upalne letnie dni.

Pinta znowu stanęła na wysokości zadania – oszałamiający zapach cytrusów, pomarańczy, kolendry, pszenicy po prostu obłęd. Barwa jasno złota z śnieżno biała pianą, która delikatnie zdobi szklankę. Jak przystało na Wita piwo jest mocno nagazowane, szczypiące. W smaku jak dla mnie zbyt mało orzeźwienia, za dużo nut słodowych powodujących, że ten Wit jest zbyt słodki.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2014
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a beige head. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, wheat, barley, and lemons. The flavor is sweet notes of straw, wheat, and lemons, leading to a dry finish.
