Arômes d’épices et levure typique du style. Robe claire et dorée. Mousse abondante et effervescente. En bouche, notes de pains, peu d’amertume. En somme, une bière légère et désaltérante.

An amazing Belgian wheat ale. Terrific white head, great taste. One of my favorite Belgian style beers

ciocanelu (911) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 15, 2016
Hazy yellow color with white head that goes away completely after a while. Aroma has cloves, coriander and some vanilla like sweetness. Taste starts quite astringent and spicy, also slightly lemony. You also get the wheat and a bit of bitterness on the finish. Body is on the light side, dry, astringent and well carbonated. Quite nice overall but not one of the best of its style.

nuplastikk (5615) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2016
12oz bottle. Filtered looking tan body. Thin white head. A pretty classic, respectable Wit. Has some yeasty character, but also remains highly drinkable and balanced. Could stand up to most Belgian examples. Really good for the style.

migwell (272) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 29, 2016
A fairly average wit from the frozen North. One thing it does demonstrate, though, is that wheat brews do not have to taste like bananas, thank goodness. Poured from the bottle into a goblet, served up a bit too cold to appreciate fully. Aroma of yeasty bread, murky yellow color, decent looking. I bought a sampler pack of Unibrows with 6 different ales for less than $10, a good deal. Oddly, they all taste rather similarly yeasty with little hop presence and mild spiciness, and so far none has knocked me out. This one is fairly bland and inoffensive with some citrus flavor and a pronounced yeastiness. Decent brew.

TET (2466) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2016
A murky, golden beer, a head is medium and white. Aroma has lemon, coriander, wheat and spicyness, typical and succesfully. Taste has wheat, coriander and some lemon, balanced spicyness. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Typical witbier, but nicely brewed, tasteful.

bdleedahl (92) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
This brewery always over-carbonates their beer, sometimes to the point of gushing. They use their standard belgian ale yeast, so all their beers share a common flavour. The taste of this beer is actually very nice for a wit though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (290) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2016
Rated from old notes. Faintly cider-like smell and taste, but dry, and not overly done. Very pleasant sipping companion.

GenDV138 (5259) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2016
355 ml silver foil capped bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Very slightly hazy golden yellow with two fingers of off-white head. Aromas of herbs, orange citrus, light spice, wheat. Tastes of herbs, orange citrus and peel, some yeast and wheat bread. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Well made wit. Would be a nice microbrew intro/alternative for the Blue Moon drinker.

Hearty white head. Dark yellow haze below head. Clean citrus aroma obvious. Flavor is slightly sweet with forward citrus hidden behind a fair amount of carbonation. Holds its own amongst my usual wits.
