UDBeernut (2046) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2012
bottle poured into St. Bernadus Goblet a: straw yellow with a nice silky 1/2" head with excellent retention. Reduces to a cap. s: Lemon zest, orange, corriander, pepper, slight biscuit aroma t: clean taste, a slight yeast flavor. The pepper smell also transfers to taste. Don’t taste the citrus as much as I would have expected.

Cloudy golden yellow body, medium white head. Aroma of lemon, wheat, soap and spices. Dry sweet taste with gentle bitterness in finish and spicy aftertaste. Light body and average carbonation. Quite refreshing.

SkillsFactory (80) - ITALY - MAY 10, 2015
Dorata pallida, opalescente, schiuma bianca fine e cremosa di media persistenza. Aroma di limone, frumento, coriandolo e pepe. Molto carbonata, corpo leggero, limone, frumento, pepe e sul finale una discreta nota acida citrica. Retrolfatto speziato. Fresca e dissetante, una buona blanche.

Carlisle (195) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange-amber color with white head that dissipates immediately; no lacing. Large carbonation bubbles. Fragrant, strong tangerine aroma with coriander and faint grapefruit and orange-cream notes. Strong citrus flavor: primarily tangerine with some grapefruit. Dry finish has coriander and honey notes with faint pineapple along with pleasant bitterness. Mouthcoating but thinner body than expected. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1124) - Rome, ITALY - APR 23, 2015
330ml bottle @ Bir&Fud Bottega. Hzy light golden with a big white head. Aroma is lemon, weat, flower, lemon zest, some esters, so so... Flavour is fresh, citrus, bread, weat, a bit sweet at first. Light body, watery, high carbonation. Just an ordinary and boring wit, nothing special.

Bottle purchased from Four Firkins. Hazy light golden color with minimal white head. Citrus lemon grass wheat aroma. Carbonated medium body. Lemon wheat flavor with a little spice. Carbonation and medium body makes it an excellent wit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rdb84 (243) - NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Typical Blanche pour, slightly murky golden orange color with large soapy foam head. Inviting strong, fresh, and grainy aroma. The most accurate description would be: a Hoegaarden that has been lying in the cellar for a couple of years. Robust aroma of grains, dried lemon, basement smell / yeast. Taste is nicely balanced, although slightly under-carbonated in my opinion. Fresh grains nicely balanced with dried lemon, some yeast and cheese flavors. Slightly doughy aftertaste. Really nothing more to say, except that it is less of a drinking beer than Hoegaarden, more degustation.

Golden little muddy colour with tiny white head. Aroma and flavours of grapefuit, yeasts, wheat, orange, some spices and of course - Belgian hops. Taste is firstly hoppy - sour than it transforms to slightly sweet. Medium carbonation and bitterness. Good but not superlative.
