A nice light and refreshing Belgian. A little lemon, a little yeast. Just a perfect combination. Could have several of these in one sitting. A poor man’s Orval.

Blond cloudy beer. Quite bitter, fruity, a little sour (citrus) and a dry finish. To me, it’s a beer between belgian ale and belgian white.

One of the most underrated beers at ratebeer.com if you ask me. Excellent brewed and balanced beer. Very lemon aroma. Golden colour, white frothy and firm head, perfect lace. Soft, light sweet, light citrus, light bitter, hoppy. Easy to drink, lovely flavors. Bit dry and bitter finish.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 Bottle. Head is initally large, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a light note of soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Delightful, bright aroma, partly tainted with a soapy note.

Hazy light golden color with a nice very white head. Nose is not that complex with some sour fruit notes. Taste is initially sweet then a nice tartness asserts itself leading to a rather dry finish. Also worth noting is a vinous quality that is only evident upon tasting. A very nice Belgian singel.

Blond, milky beer. Geuze aroma. Surprise ! This is a normal tasting Witkap. It tastes geuze, which I consider normal in comparison to the other Witkaps.
