3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Straw yellow with a big fluffy head. It leaves nice lacings in the glass. Citric bit sour aroma with notes of coriander. Citric taste with a slight sourness and coriander notes. Very refreshing. The sourness added to the wit works fine. This is just a bit artificial on the citric side.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, pours a filtered yellow/orage with a quickly dissapating head. Orange and vanilla dominate the nose. Tastes like a white beer mixed with a lambic and heavily carbonated. Weird, but not as bad as it sounds. Bitter orange with the sourness of a gueuze. I agree with others this is definately not a wit, but the citrus in this does shoot more towards orange.

Had this with Oldrtybastrd. This was cloudy with a little head and coriander. This was like I expected from a white beer, not my favorite.

Bottiglia da 33cl alla cambusa, il tipo mi dice che è alla nocciola (!) ma ovviamente non è vero. E’ un misto fra una gueuze commerciale e una blanche, molto dolce con una punta leggera d’acido (ma forse più frumentifero che altro) che però viene dominata e sottomessa senza pietà. Tuttavia, è uno dei prodotti Timmermans che ho sopportato di più.

Courtesy of SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. 5 pack w/ glass and coasters. Pours a cloudy yellow. Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didn’t care for this beer at all. White beers aren’t high on my list.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 33cl - Pale yellow beer with a large disappearing whit head. Aroma is fruity and acid. Flavor is slightly sour with strong notes of passion fruits and green apples. Best Timmerman I’ve had. But a Witbier?

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.5%. Sweetened with sugar AND saccharine, hmmm... Ingredients also include artificial "aromas / flavourings" + antioxidant E300. Spontaneous fermentation, has the character of a sweetened lambic more than a witbier. Pale golden colour, big white head. Citrussy aroma with some sidenotes of milk products, also notes of farmhouse cider and barnyard, hints of banana and cloves. The flavour is saccharine sweetness with citrussy notes, and only a moderate acidity. No bitterness. Not very interesting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Hazy yellow amber with some white head. Strong lemon aroma with yoghurty yeasts. Light body with plenty of carbonation. The flavour is refreshing, lemony and complex with yoghurt, banana, estery yeasts. No bitterness. An excellent lambic; complex, refreshing and drinkable.
