Bottle. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus peel, yeast. Flavour has coriander, wheat, citrus, malt, yeast, citrus peel and light peppery spiciness. It’s a good wit!

nearbeer (4782) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 31, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2016 33 cl. bb 10 03 2017. Translucent golden pear colored body supports a lasting disc of creamy foam. Nose is spicy yeast, lemon zest, honey and resin. Tastes of lemon-lime SweeTart candy, citrus zest, mineral water, a bit of bubblegum, pear and spicy yeast. Light body has high carbonation, a mild astringency and a decent balance. OK, but overrated and I will not purchase knowingly again; definitely shouldn’t be in the top 50 Witbiers.

Very nice witte poured into a rochefort chalice. Appearance is a cloudy yellow straw with some carbonation and a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is lemon peel with bread and cereal overtones. The taste is somewhat zesty and tart. Lemon peel and yeast in the forefront with the traditional wheat in the background. Definitely a slightly bitter finish but it’s actually very nice and bubbly with the carbonation on the tongue. Overall, a very good wheat beer.

Hopverdju (553) - BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2016
Troebel blond bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: overvloedig koriander, wat sinaasappel en een pepertje. Smaak: citrus en een bittertje. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: citrus. Ik ben niet zo ’n fan van witbier, maar deze is ok.

Beardbeerman (335) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle from Marc, thanks man. Pours a hazy straw topped by a coarse off-white head showing average retention, but lacing properties. Highly carbonated brew. The nose is fruity, doughy. Fresh white bread, hint of citrus, some peppercorn and a strong vegetal backbone. The taste is bready with citrus notes and that same vegetal backbone. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice little tartness. Good, light and refreshing. Cheers!

This is a solid fruity wit. The coriander gets a bit vegetal but that is my only complaint. It’s lightly tart, zesty and creamy with a nice orange night. Very refreshing and makes you burp a lot.
