Draught at the brewery, I happen to live just 500 metres from it. Hazy orange, tiny white head. Extramele thick, good bubbles. Not too strong aroma, but the taste is like flowers and perfume. Long finish which turns a bit bitter and sour. Best rating Iíve ever given to a wit..

Pours a clear amber with a fizzy white head. Wait a second, clear? Well after careful inspection I realized that the fact that my beer isnít reflecting the other reviewers must be due to a thick layer of yeast stuck to the bottom (inside) of the bottle. Iím guessing this has aged at least two years.
Anyways, despite the clarity, the beer was fresh tasting, and quite carbonated.
Taste, Iím getting a bit of alcohol in the taste, some honey, malts, wheat, spices and etc.
Overall, a highly drinkable beer, but due to the outrageous cost to purchase ($4.50 a 12oz bottle) I might wind up sticking with Unibroue for now.

Bottle. Gusher. Pours clear golden coloured with a small egg white head. Floral aroma with notes of yeast, candy, spice and fruit. Fruity flavour with a nice malty sweetness. Refreshing brew.

30th September 2008. Cloudy amber beer. Dry, crisp and a litte tangyness in the very dry finish. Some spice in the aftertaste. Not your usual Wit but overdry for my palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aromas show pleny of bread & yeast with some bananas citus and spice. Aromas are very well balanced. Flavours show plenty of sweet malt which is not expected of this style. There is some spice and yeast but the malt dominates. Seems a slightly unusaual take on this style but very nice never the less. Good beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on tap at the brewpub, Amsterdam, 27th Oct 2009 Pours hazy yellow in colour with a clingy off white filmy head. Wheaty on the nose along with some citrus, its a very nice aroma actually. Taste is really quite full on for a wheat which is really pleasant and makes a nice change. This has some oomph, though remains a refreshing, clean and tasty beer A8 A4 F7 P4 Ov15 3.8

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An original take on a wit - in fact more like a wheaty saison. Which isnít a bad place to be. Great loose fluffy wheaty head on a hazy orange body. Very yeasty and spicy nose - fresh and vivid peach, coriander, orange zest, grass, doughy yeast. Very very coriander driven, almost to the point of sickliness, surrounded by a snowstorm of yeast, and then finishing surprisingly hoppy/bitter along with phenols like chewing on a black peppercorn. Itís hard to tell whether it would taste sweet without the coriander but it seems sweet. At least the spices taste fresh and edgy, not like the soapy coriander stuff you get in Blanche de Namur etc. As the glass went on it became a bit hard to drink, although it had my respect.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 L bottle from de Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Big white head, dense and stable. Unclear, dark yellow colored body. Rather sweet-smelling. Wheaty, with notes of sweet lemonade and a faint whiff of mild spices. Taste is fairly sweet with some sourish and herbal undertones. Allso a kind of syrupy fruitiness and some hops and spices underneath. Oily, bordering on sticky mouthfeel. Sourish-sweet, fruity ending. A fairly good one, lacks some freshness though.

Hazy light orange with a medium white head. Aroma had brett, wheat and lemons. Flavour was sourish with brett, lemons, wheat and coriander. Finished sourish. Lovely wit.
