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.

Too sweet and tart for my tastes very juice like.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2002
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.

Ernest (6576) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2002
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.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2002
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.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2002
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.

I had this one "van ’t vat". A week earlier, I tried the tripel. While trying this one I was a bit disappointed.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2002
Cloudy straw color with yeast, medium head with good lacing. Citrus and spice in the nose. Slightly tart and rather yeasty; finishes dry. Reminds me a bit of Orval with its dry yeastiness. Very nice.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2002
Another hazy orange coloured Belgian Ale with a small, white, fast dissipating head, that still manages to generate sone nice fine lace. Gueuzy cider/citrus sour and mild old socks yeast aroma. Light sour bitter start. In fact why is this beer called a Belgian Ale when its clearly a lambic of sorts. Less sour with soft bitter middle and light refreshing short dry finish. Probably the most drinkable of all the Witcaps I’ve had so far.
