Bontus (625) - Flanders, - JUN 23, 2012
33cl bottle, dranken Geers. Pours clear pale golden/yellow. Dense egg white head. Yeasty nose, dough, aroma’s are grain & yeast dominant, wheat, hay, ... Head has the rusty nail aroma. This will be better once they brew it somewhere else. Bitter aftertaste, but no hop aroma. Spritzy body. A good brew, but I would like it a bit more ’dirty’ & hazy, if they pretend to use an historic recipe.

DrSilverworm (6033) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Taste from an 11.2oz bottle. Hazy golden orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Smooth and easy-drinking. Nice texture. Light bitter. Good zest. Light sweet, kind of spicy. Some orange citrus. Light hint of banana. Belgian type fruitiness, and an interesting graininess in the finish. Solid, interesting stuff to try.

b3shine (5210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a somewhat cloudy maize with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells like Belgianyeast, orange, and a touch of clove. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but forgettable.

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Tap at an Antwerp restaurant. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is light acid citrus banana. The flavour is light sour with a wheaty citrus palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

cmc619 (386) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Nice Belgian wheat beer - a bit bigger and sturdier than a wit. First had after 2014 DVV Antwerp 5k. Brewed by ex-Duvel guy apparently - same bottle anyway.

Maakun (519) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2014

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Yeasty, floral nose. Hazy pale straw color, thin flimy white head. Light wheaty initial, mild hopping, some very ripe frutiness (even a touch phenolic!). Alc. is rather noticeable. Thin-medium body. Thin body. Overall, quite fruity, but flavors are sort of distressed and don’t stand out at any point.
