yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with lacing white head. Aroma is wheaty and bubblegum. Flavour holds the classic germen hefeweizen flavours and some belgian wit notes like coriander. Yeasty, spiced and overly banana fruity, goes into a more coriander and orange peel dominated flavour as the beer heats up. Ends lingering banana fruity finish. More German than Belgian, I’ve never been impressed by US imitations of these two styles (not that I am a big fan of the German Hefeweizen style), this one doesn’t change that.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2005
A hazy pale yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of wheat and citrus - especially lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemon and wheat. This reminds me a lot of drinking lemonade - very refreshing.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2007

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2008
Bottled. Hazy yellowish colour, mediumsized white lacing head. Aroma is yeast, wheat, sourness as well as spices. Flavour is spices, wheat, yeast and flowery hops. For being US-made witbier, it’s a very good one.

omhper (18954) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Cloudy golden. Lactic acid aroma. Nicely rounded mlat character, with pleasant notes of oraneg and curacao. Citric finish. While I’ve never been a huge fan of the witbier-on-steroids category I do appreciate this one.

anders37 (15535) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2008

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
Draught at d.b.a., NYC
Cloudy blond color. The aroma is initially with citrus fruits, shows some dirty water smell, later, and plastic. Ordinary flavor, poor wheat, some sweetness, some citrus fruits, and a light sourness that I think is unwanted.
