ComradeK (1064) - The Vale of Dundas, - 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.

Une blanche assez classique malgré au taux d’alcool assez élevé, le nez exprimer agrumes et épices et la bouche est à la fois ample et raffraîchissante.

Bottle from Klaas. Many thanks! Hazy golden colour, white foam. Aroma of banana, citrus and some spices. Sweet, light bitter finish. Easy drinkable. Ok beer.

BlackHaddock (4672) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
33cl bottle on 6th Feb 2015 in De Bierboom (Brugge), no mention of 500 on my label. I thought this grainy for a Witbier. Slight haze to the light golden pour, white head on top. Spices in the aroma with a yeasty, citrusy overtone, some sweet banana and bubblegum like esters in there too. The taste was leaning towards sweeter than the nose with grainy bread maltiness adding to the smells and traces found in the aroma. A bit sweet for a Witbier and more multi-grain than wheat. Nice though.

rlgk (12823) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget Ulricehamn, Sweden. Named Blond Bitch Beer. Clear pale golden beer with a decent white head. Malty bready aroma, spicy, dough, some perfume. Perfume and spearmint flavor, grassy, caramel, menthol, some spices. A bit odd.

brnandersen (2377) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Weizen glass. Hazy, pale golden colour with a fine, fluffy white head. Spicy aroma with yeasts, citrus, coriander, banana and bubble gum. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a lively, tingling carbonation. Finishes rather sweet and rich for a Witbier with spices and wheat malts. A Witbier to the sweeter side. I prefer these a bit drier and lighter in alcohol.

Icedwarf (605) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
Helder geel bier met weing schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zuur. Lijkt niet erg op standaard witbier maar is erg goed. Blijft gemiddeld hangen.

Alengrin (2989) - BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2014
’Tarwedubbel’ named after a 16th-century scientist (if such a thing even existed back then) with a cream white, moussy, stable head and orangey golden blonde colour, hazy, even milky after adding the deposit. Aroma of fresh wheat sourishness, sweet bread, pear, peach, straw, ginger, coriander, vanilla, gingerbread. Malt sweetish onset, refreshing wheat sourishness, fruity, with some coriander and a drying finish with a hint of warming alcohol. The added spices are subdued in this - in fact, De Graal claims to use none at all. I’m convinced I found some coriander in this, however, but that could still be autosuggestion. Interesting.

Zymurgeist2 (1231) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle in Brugge. Clear straw that dissipates quickly leaving a collared white ring. Aroma of spice leads to an unrefined taste of slight wheat malt and moderate spice hops. Moderate thin mouthfeel.

Normaal ben ik geen fan van witbieren, maar dit was nu eens echt een lekker witbier.

Lilja (2025) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, vete, koriander, citrus, honung med toner av gräs och örter. Rund, len, lätt kropp och lagom sötma.
