Gerbeer (1674) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a light lemon yellow with moderate head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of coriander and lemon polish. Flavors of lemon and grain/wheat. More like a heavily carbonated lemon soda. light but refreshing.

BeerGolem (660) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a somehow hazy blond with thin white head, quickly diminishing. No lacing. Aroma and taste are mostly about wheat (which will please people sick of banana notes found in many witbier). Somehow unpleasant acidic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin, almost watery. Lively carbonation. Refreshing. Overally mediocre, even for the style.

330ml bottle from The Beer Cellar 081113. A bit pale and sickly looking with a decent white head. Not great but not that bad.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
250ml Bottle. This pours a dense white head that soon disappears leaving a tight laced top over a pale amber slightly cloudy body. Its aroma is Belgian yeast and orange with floral notes. Its taste is fairly standard for a wit beer. Smoky Belgian yeast, spices, citrus all come before a slight;y dry sweet finish. Uncomplicated wit beer.

fishingcat (8) - Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014 does not count
Pours the colour of mildly cloudy urine, smells and tastes little better. Head is non-existent. Mercifully watery, as what little taste there is reminiscent of a traditional wheat beer gone terribly wrong. Like a remarkably flavourless pork casserole in a bottle. Avoid.

fletchfighters (1039) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2014
330 ML bottle Clear straw yellow color, half finger bright white head. Some visible carbonation and not much else really. Head retains well though. Nose is orange an spices. Decent but soft nose. Little bits of wheat or hay. Taste is faint orange and a lot of the wheat bill. More cereal like really. Feel is light and somewhat watery. Some flashes of orange and grain before finishing a bit metallic. Light bodied and creamy. Very meh
