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...

Typical belgian white. This one does not have much fruitiness or herbs in the flavor ( others in the style have more of that) but good mild bready flavor with pronounced yeast. Not sweet which is good. Can understand others find the subtle flavor weak. I like it.

MarkoNm (231) - SLOVENIA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours a hazy, pale yellow color with a weak carbonation and two fingers of white foamy head. The aroma is wheaty, slighty yeasty (not nice) along with some fruits to improve the situation. The taste starts sweet and spicy and continues with a bit of yeastiness. Finish is bitter, but another reminder why I don’t really like wheat beers. Not a bad one, just not my style.

Straight from bottle at Amsterdam Airport. Decided not go for the Heineken based on my last trip there. Tastes of fruit with hints of spice. Decent Witbier.

MichaelAwesome (2963) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
Classic wit with a decent sourness and a refreshing, maybe bit thin, body. Some herbs in the back combined with wheat make that one an easy going and enjoyable one. Thumbs up.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2014
Beer pours out of the bottle in a cloudy light yellow colour with very low head and thin body. Aroma sourness and hops. Taste of mild Belgian yeast, wheat, nuts, citrus, acid and hay. Thin-sour finish. Refreshing and easy to drink yet nothing special.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, würzig, Koriander, Citrus. Geschmack leich hefig würzig, Citrus, Koriander, leicht fruchtig.

LwaIPA (30) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014
tried draft and bottled several times in Amsterdam, faint spice and banana on the nose. taste is mild again a slight banana note. Better draft than bottled. when in Amsterdam I found this made a good alternative to the two main lagers as im not a huge fan of them. not a bad beer by any stretch of the imagination

knutole (28) - Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2014
aroma: citrus, coriander, perfume, quite penetrating appearance: pale colour, foam doesn’t exist, stale taste: coriander, soapy, sour, mouldy, no real malt or hop taste present, watery, overall very disappointing. wouldn’t recommend this beer.

Bottle. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma of light wheat notes and a hint of fruit. Light body with light spice and fruity notes.
