Voivod (304) - Como, - JUL 29, 2003
Pale yellow colour, almost no head. Disappointing skunky aroma. The flavour is very watery, with some citrus traces. Slight spicy finish. Not the best example for this style...

77ships (7440) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2016
300 ml. bottle sampled @ home. According to the label, this one was brewed using solar energy. Nothing on the label makes it clear that this is a Heineken product. Second Heineken product where I notice that. BBF Jan 2017. Hazy sparkling citrus, little white bubbles. Nose is watery buttery wheat, thin sweet flowers & big butter, mineral, bad soda artificial banana. Fizzy empty body awful plastic chemical bitter plastic, butter, plastic flowers, unpleasant bitter chemical, watery spoiled buttery wheat. Just unpleasant rubbish really. A bad Hefe should be more enjoyable than this, quite a poor product. Not very pleasant in my opinion.

On tap in Amsterdam and with a light white taste but not very much of a nose. Palate is with yeast and some citric freshness.

250ml bottle in AMS.. Aroma is light coriander, light yeast. Appearance is cloudy yellow with a light white foam. Light dry, light carbonation. Good.

BenWesthof (196) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2016
A somewhat pale witbier in my opinion. In Holland this is the ’rival’ of Hoegaarden, which is way better and has a more complex and full taste.

hauxe (338) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2015
Rated from old notes. "Spicy" white beer without the spice. Slightly lemony, bland, watery, faint dishwater undertones. An unfortunate mishap.

Witbier van Nederland, weinig of geen schuimkraag. Zeer lichte kleur. Val al bij al nog mee.

Bottle at some hotel at Schiphol Airport, december 12th 2014. Cloudy golden body with a small white head. Wheaty aroma with lemondrops and herbs, taste is sweet with banana and bubble gum. Feels sweet and lightbodied in the mouth. Mild citric aftertaste.

sinte (499) - Udine, ITALY - OCT 15, 2015
On tap. Hazy, light yellow body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate hoppy (citrus) and yeasty aroma with notes of spices and fruits. Moderate sweet and light bitter flavour. Light-to-medium body with watery texture; soft carbonation.
