0.75 l bottle Foams whitely from the bottle, settles down to an utterly entrancing pale, wheat colored liquid with a lacing of tiny bubbles. Delicate on the tongue, lightly scented, floral and refined. Not bad, I say :]

It's a nice smooth Belgian white that's never overpowering. Another winner from Unibroue.

Hazy light gold with a large poofy foamy white head. Lots and lots of bubbles make their way to the top to keep a nice head. Dominant wheat malt and spice aroma at first, followed by an orangy citrus. I'm not all that familiar with spices use in Belgian styles but I'm just guessing it's coriander. It's very pleasant and attractive. Dry wheat and light, very light, clove spice flavors with a dry finish and fairly clean aftertaste. Not quite as complex as I'd hoped. Very highly carbonated and light bodied as a wit should be, as well as having a dry but non astringent m/f. Not quite as spicey or complex as some Belgian style Wits, but very well made and drinkable summer session beer nonetheless.

This particular brew poured a large white foamy head with fine-large bubbles that quickly dissolved. There was very little lacing observed on the sides of my glass. There was a slight spicy aroma to this brew. The body was pale yellow. The taste was smooth, thin and watery. In my opinion this Belgian White lacked character as there was nothing special about it.

This brew poured a very large head of fine to medium sized bubbles that receedes quickly and leaves no lacing. It has a cloudy yellow body with some dark somethings floating it it. It has a mild malt aroma, a nice smooth start with a slightly tingly mouthfeel finish. Very clean taste that is unremarkable. Not bad, more like nothing there. Strangely, overall, I still liked it.

Of all the Wits I have tried "dis one aint to bad"....It is nice and clean with a refreshing finish and true to style. The corriander notes are very subdued and pleasant. Would recommend this one, but not my favorite.

JFGrind (1866) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Poured a hefty head into my Bitburger fluted glass. After 45 seconds head dissipated into a long lasting ring of white bubbles. Yeasty nose, a beer made for warm summer evenings.

Cloudy, light gold color. Small head with little lacing. Lovely yeasty, spicy nose. Some citrus among the spices in the taste. Medium bodied. Crisp aftertaste, very refreshing. Liked this one a lot.

Looks like a beer should with pale color and nice head. Peppery nose, nice light body-- good drinkable wit.

Pale yellow color with a fluffy white head as poured out of the bottle. Thin spicey nose that is an accurate precurser to the beer. Nice, traditional witbier with light body, spicey taste and a clean finish. Not the most complicated beer in the style but a very good beer.
