rosenbergh (8543) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2009 Draught at Kolme Kaisaa, Helsinki, Finland. Pale yellow colour with small white head. Sour (lactose/yoghurt) wheaty aroma with some spices. Flavour is very sour for a Witbier. Also wheat, citrus and some spices. Fizzy. Not bad but surprising. Interesting.

FatPhil (10867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 28, 2009
330ml bottle (, Helsinki)
Yellowy amber, brief fizzy head. Little aroma, touch of wheat, that’s all. Crisply carbonated, but a slightly soda-watery experience in the mouth. Gentle wheaty base, tiny touch of barky bitterness, or even liquorice-like dryness on the tongue. Some fruity spiciness too, quite interesting actually. I first thought this was just a slug-it-back summer thirst-quencher wit, but on gaining a couple of degrees the gruut comes through really nicely. Finish is liquoricey.

Light, hazy yellow colour, thin receding head. Intense herbal aroma. Thin, watery texture. Flavour is dominated too much by the herbs and spices. It doesn’t taste enough like beer!

FlacoAlto (3849) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2009
This pours with a frothy, initially three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a milky, straw yellow color that shows a bit of haze, and a bright, pale gold color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of grassy wheat, earthy coriander with some leading orange zest and trailing lemon zest notes. The spices are well balanced by the earthy, grassy, grain-like wheat character.

Dry tasting, but this does have a touch of grain sweetness to it. There is a nice tartness to the finish as well as a peppery carbonic bite that balances the sweet grain character up front. Earthy coriander lightly spices the flavor profile, but does not run rough-shod over this beer as so often happens in many a poor made Wit. There is a certain fruitiness here that reminds me a bit of tropical fruit, perhaps even some kiwi. This has a very light body to it, definitely a refreshing beer to be drinking in hot weather, though it is not watery. The grain contributes a touch of straw / dried-hay flavors. There is a touch of phenolic clove notes to the finish that mixes in with a light Meyer Lemon zest character.

A decent Witbier, that any lover of the style will enjoy. It is perhaps missing a touch of depth to the flavor, but I like that the spicing is on the subtle side.

alobar (3095) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Cloudy straw yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of grain, yeast, and some banana. Flavor hints at being a wit-some grain, fruit, and yeast, but seemed watered down and weak.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2009 (Draught and Bottle versions) Pours a lightly cloudy yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, light lemon, some clove, and yeast. Flavor of wheat, banana, and grass with a dry finish and soft mouthfeel.
