Le nez est très herbal ! On sent bien l?odeur typique des blanches belges qui vient du froment qui annonce un corps tout à fait alléchant.La bouche ne déçoit pas : un corps très rond, aromatique et agréable. Sans doute la meilleure "wit" que j?ai bue jusqu?ici.

RafeAU (420) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Plonk. Pale hazy straw with thin bubbly head. Coriander aroma. Flavour is mostly coriander, a bit of a tang on the finish I’m not keen on. High carbonation, spritzy. Decent witbier, but a bit one-dimensional on the coriander (in this imported bottle I’m drinking in Australia, at least).

McGarnigle (585) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle. This is a nice wit, quite hazy and bit dark for the style (more gold than yellow). Fairly aggressive fizz. A bit on the tart side, which helps with the refreshment. Of course low hop, low malt flavor.

jawlo (155) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Aromat: przyjemny, kolendra, delikatna skórka od pomarańczy, przyprawy. Barwa: biało-żótła, mętne. Piana: średnio-obfita. Wysycenie: wysokie. W smaku głównie kolendra, wychodzi trochę przeniczność, goryczka niska, na finiszus trochę kwaśne. Piwo wytrawne, średnio treściwe. Bardzo dobry wit, orzeźwiający i mocno aromatyczny.

GlassBrass440 (295) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 2, 2015
Pours a hazy gold with a large, dense, everlasting, white, merengue-like head. Aromas are soft and of wheat, and sweet confections. Flavours are again soft with a light sweetness, vanilla, cream, and herbal notes. Effervescent carbonation and medium bodied. My sample is nearly a year past the best by date, but was still enjoyable. I’d love to try one fresh.
