Hansen (6495) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2013
Golden coloured and unclear. Has a white head, medium duration. Aroma is a mix of sweet malts and faint spicy, citrus and coriander perhaps. Flavor is heavy sweet, no acidity, light bitter finish. Creamy texture.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg: en belgisk wit slik den skal være: tørr, crisp og thirst quenching med akkurat det nødvendige krydderanslag. Et riktig godt sommerøl for terassebruk eller til mat. På hytta i juli, kvelden før avreise til Belgia: ned fra 3.6 til 3.1, skummet forsvinner umiddelbart, og smaken blir like fort flat.

Silvan7 (655) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 15, 2013
Bottle @ La Taverna del Bucaniere. Inaspettata Blanche. Profumo ingannevole, ricorda una torta al limone per via delle note zuccherine e quelle agrumate. Il sentore di lieviti belga è deciso. All’apparenza è di un giallo carico, naturalmente torbida, con nessuna apparente carbonatazione. Schiuma compatta ma e stabile. Gusto che ricorda più una strong ale al primo assaggio, con un discreto tenore alcolico, gusto pieno e dissetante. Nel finale arrivano i sentori più tipici delle blanche, scorze di agrumi e un piacevole erbaceo.Per questo genre di birra la luppolatura è già sin troppo generosa, ma in termini genrali direi che è poco avvertibile. Corpo non pieno e struttura appiccicosa per la lingua/palato.

tderoeck (4447) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2012
29/IX/2012 - 33cl bottle @ De Graal brewery (Brakel) with the Gentse Biervereniging - BB: VI/14 (2012-1092)

Clear blond orange beer, small aery white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of orange peel, coriander, bit spicy, sweet. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: bit spicy, some caramel, bit of candi sugar, lots of coriander, orange peel, little bitter, spicy. A bit too sweet for a witbier, and not sour enough, for me.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2012
750 ml. Hazy deep golden body. Frothy off-white head, fully diminishing. Aroma of clove, honey, peach, orange. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Sweet orange and banana taste followed by hints of lemon citrus. Clove and spice help balance the honey notes and sweet fruits. Some pepper in the finish along with a muted lingering bitterness. Not as zippy and refreshing as other wits and a bit sweet, but still an enjoyable beer.

ComradeK (992) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold, with lots of floating sediment. The large white head lasts well, but does not leave much lacing. Bizarrely enough, the main aroma is of methode champenoise cider, with some doughy yeast notes and maybe a touch of coriander. There is some spicy coriander up front, with some tangy orange peel in the mix. There is a tad too much yeast in the middle, but a nice coriander and apple finish redeems it somewhat. Not the best witbier out there, but passable enough.
