Bottle @ De Tolly Joogipood. Pours hazy yellow with small fluffy white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, wheat, light citrus. Taste is yeasty sour, paper, some spicyness. A bit watery and strange taste. Thin to medium body. Drinkable but rather bad than good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330mL bottle BB 06/2016
Pours a hazy pale blonde body, white foam flairs up by dissipates.
Mild aroma; some spicy phenolic yeasty notes, dried orange peel, earthy spice & hay.
Medium bodied, drying texture, prickly carbonation.
Much the same on the body - nothing really stands out - faintly spicy, peppery, light fruitiness. Mild finish, lingering spice and breadiness.
Run of the mill sort of Wit, not bad, but the flavours don’t really pop.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden colour with a smaller than expected head for the style. Strong coriander and clove aromas, along with the wheat and dank yeast. The taste is quite pleasant but a little sweeter than expected - wheat grains, lemon zest, coriander and lots of honey. Light in body and spicy on the tongue. Quite refreshing on a warm day and enjoyable. Not as clean and crisp as some others of the style though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle at home. Hazy golden with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate to high carbonation. Nice sweetness with some sour and bitter tones. Wheat, citrus, yeast, some hops and herbs. A nice and refreshing witbier, which was not too synthetic as are the most mass produced Belgian whites.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Scheldebrouwerij’s witbier, with off-white, creamy, not too stable head and golden blonde colour with a certain haze. Aroma of unripe peach, orange peel, cardboard, dry cider, coriander, wheat. Soft applish fruitiness in the mouth, honeyish barley and sourish wheat but in a mild and subtle way, touch of caramel, more tart and dry towards the finish with more hop bitterness than expected from the style. Has a certain amount of body you won’t find in the Hoegaarden clones, but still doesn’t add much to the style.
