Draught@Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is quite dishwatery along with some spices. Flavour is wheat, spices, coriander and some rather sweet candyish notes. Wellbalanced and refreshing as for the flavour.

bhops (427) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2008
bottle at den djiver, bruges. Perfect compliment to the asparagus dish I was eating. Flemish style with salmon and hominy/egg? maybe the food affected my rating but this was a thoroughly enjoyable beer.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - APR 8, 2008
05/04 0.33 l bottle from Hopdevil, Zagreb. Poured hazy pale yellow body with medium white head. Very weak aroma, some yeast, but really nothing. Flavor quite empty, very watery, soursweet with some fruitiness. All this could end only with very short and pretty tasteless finish. This is perfectly fine brew, nothing unpleasant except is way too watered down.

The fact that Iíve had to add this and the Wit was a surprise... 0.33l bottle at the Hopdevil in Zagreb.
So, Iíve had the Blond before this one, which was dull and I was actually looking forward to this one, I mean, thereís bound to be some taste in the Wit. At least from coriander. The pour was promising. Unfiltered, a nice murky yellow colour with a small head that went away fast. More or less, true to style. And then I went to smell it and I discovered to my dismay that it was all too true to the range. Nothing. Even worse than the Blond. Iíve strained and strained and the only thing Iíve found was some extremely weak spice. Though that might be my sense of smell rebelling and inventing something just to stop me from repeating the process again. The taste. Now, you have the rest of the range, which are imo basically fine, but all too watered down examples of their respective styles and then you have the average crappy light beer and you have this. Heck, Iíve had bottled water with more character than this. At first Iíve managed to find, to my surprise, water. And then, some more water. WATERHEADS REJOICE! And then... some weak weak acidity (and the audience went "Awww..."). Maybe some fruitiness. And maybe Iím imagining things... no... when it got a bit warmer, there was something, but letís just call that "faint sweetness" shall we. Ok, I guess one could claim that that weak acidity belongs to some faint agrumey taste, but thatíd just be an insult to those that really do possess a "faint agrumey taste". Faint & background take a whole new meaning with this bad boy. Ok. Iím being a bit negative. Letís find something positive. Umm.... the mouthfeel isnít unpleasant? Yes! Correct! Ok... Iíll cut it out. All in all, the dullest beer Iíve had in a while and the dullest beer Iíve had coming from Belgium. Really hoping Iíve had a "bad bottle" or something. The Blond got a "why?". This gets a "WHY?!?"
