Burrobuns (83) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2007
Aroma is mediocre spice. Gorgeous golden color with bits of crap floating in it (have to love the Belgian brew that do that). Taste struck me as a little odd at first, but settled into a nice yeasty flavor that tasted almost of biscuits in the aftertaste. I thought I would not like it, but enjoyed it quite a bit by the end of the bottle.

Bottle from Shigadeyo! Nose very yeasty with citrus and light spices; hazy copper gold with a medium white head; flavor is lactic acidwith grainy yeast and a little cloves. Quite different.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 21, 2007
11.2oz bottle from Kingdom Liquors Brandon, Fl. Pours a hazy golden with a large white head that fades to a thin ring and leaves good lacing. Aroma of of soft white wheat, citrus, yeast, and spice. The taste is the same with a mild tartness. Spices are light and well balanced. A very refreshing beer.

Bottle from Party Source. Poured hazy yellow with a minimal frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate yeasty sour citrus aroma. Light to medium body. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where not met.

JoeinDahlem (1366) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 17, 2007
This is simply the best blanche I’ve had in Belgium. It tastes as if it leaves out the spices and fruits, sticking with classic purity. Cloudy, whitish yellow. Aroma leans heavily toward grain and bread instead of citrus. Seriously wheaty flavor, refreshing without relying on lots of lemon or orange peel. Light, lively and bready. Some hops come through on the back-tongue and finish. No surprise that one of the country’s best breweries makes one its best wheats.

mkofron (155) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 Best Witbier I’ve had thus far. thick off white head.. foamy... taste and palate screams the high quality of St. Bernardus. Hints of coriander and citrus.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2007
The color was a foggy peach. The head was creamy, foamy, and off-white. The aroma was tart, citrisy, yeasty, and hoppy. The flavor was citris, clean, and sour. The flavor was really refreshing. The palate was very smooth. The finish was clean.
