mike_77 (3037) - NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2008
A pretty anonymous white beer with a slightly sweet edge. Fairly plain but easy to drink.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
Bottle at O’briens. Pours with a very pale yellow body topped by a medium thick, white head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet yet bitter with a note of yeast, a little banana and some clove. Light bodied and a touch dry.

Plovmand (6459) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a good lasting white head. Aroma is very yeasty with notes of wheat and citric fruits. In the flavour I catch coriander and orange and some acid. Its more malty than the usual Belgian Wit.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAR 20, 2008
750 ml brown champagne bottle. Best by end of May, 2009. Poured out a brilliant, bright yellow color, with a soapy white head. Aromas are of lactic wheat malt, yeasty bread, slight hops. Flavors are bubblegum, some clove, lactic acid tang. Medium mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Finished rather slick for a Wit.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of coriander and lemon peel. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Attractive aroma (if somewhat ordinary for the style), but way too sugary/syrupy sweet to drink more than a few ounces of. Shame...if it had been done crisper (and maybe a little less strong), this would be solid.

Skyview (5183) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, Minnesota as De Graal Triverius, Belgian Wheat Ale. Pours a semi hazy golden brew with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of strong banana esters, whe3at malt and yeast with a touch of coriander. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of cloves, bananas, yeast and a touch of white pepper. Finish has a nice yeast/coriander and banana aftertaste, some fruity character and nice hop finish. A pretty decent wit overall.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Bottle from State Line. Pours turbid deep golden with huge, 3-finger white head. Aroma is spicy white peppery citrus, perfumy florals, malt, hops, and limey fruit. Tastes spicy, with floral notes, citrus, hops, white pepper, and malt. This is a very good witbier.

bhensonb (10978) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 8, 2008
750 ml bottle from Liquid Solutions. Aromas of citrus, wheat and yeast spice (mild). Hazy light golden color with a frothy/creamy white head. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor of citrus peel, coriander, touch of clove, and banana? Very mild Wit. Very tasty Wit. The finish is the same, but a touch of hop bitter comes forth. Not as harsh as many, more flavorful than many. It’s a work of art.

faroeviking (10290) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a smal white head. Strong citrus aroma with yeast, coriander and some sweetness. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with citrus, wheat, coriander and a mild bitterness. A bit thin but good Belgian wheat beer.
