MustangMarkF (213) - 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 (7) - 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 (1010) - 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

Minderbinder (1584) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle 330ml. Pours whitish with medium white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of spices, oranges, yeast, fruits, wheat. Taste is of spices, oranges, citrus, yeast, wheat, slight acidity. Palate: Light body. Somewhat high carbonation. Overall: A tad light. Classic features, but turned a bit bad. Not really refreshing. Leaves a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste.

mathieuc (996) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
.Pours a lightly hazy blond with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of spices and orange peel. Taste is spicy and "white enough" (some light wheat flavors). Bananas? Body is light, mouthfeel watery. Not the best crafted witbier out there.

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Clear yellow with a small quickly recessing white head and no lacing. Aroma is soapy with light skunky notes, soap, pineapple, coriander, herbal notes and light orange peel. Taste isn’t getting any better... soap, coriander, orange peel, cereals and not much else. Light/weak body. Low carbonation. Bland. Most of the aroma/flavor we get are "off". Weak brew.

minutemat (886) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
25cl bottle from Vanuxeem. Very thin taste for a wit, cloudy light yellow appearance with cat piss aroma. Slight white wine with some limited spices and a distinct lager taste. Very disappointing. Have a feeling this might have a fresher, fuller taste direct from the brewery.

slakemythirst (188) - - OCT 16, 2013
Folklig wit bier utan krussiduller. Rik doft av kryddnejlika, banan och kanel. Enkel, rak och relativt fyllig törstsläckare. Jodå.
