330 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours cloudy peach with white head. Smells tart, citrus, funky yeast some banana. Same notes on the taste with some spice thrown in. Really refreshing, this is a winner for me.

Pours a hazy golden body with a medium head. Nice yeasty aroma with a hint of malts. Disappointing taste that is rather flat and grassy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mateuszk (873) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow, big white head. Aroma of coriander, sweet orange, citrus and wheat. In taste citrusy with coriander note, not overpowered by it. Low body, dry, citrusy and low bitter finish. Very drinkable and tasty wit.

MarkoNm (1511) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours a hazy and very pale yellow color, topped with a frothy white head, rather small. Typical and very pleasant citrusy aroma with some spices (coriander, though I’m not an expert). Taste is sweet and wheaty, citric with some mild yeasty presnece. All in all a real nice wit.

Pale orange and cloudy with smallish head. Orange, peach and curacao aroma. Pleasantly spicy and flavourful, is that seville orange peels which are so obvious? Medium dry and really well balanced with a touch of bitterish spices in the finish. A top wit!

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.

Bottle at home. Hazy yellow colour. A spicy coriander flavour mixed with citrus, floral, a little lemony. Very nice.

RafeAU (395) - 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 (580) - 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.
