sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2012
Draft @ Delirum, Brussels. Dorée trouble allant plus vers un aspect blé, col épais et crémeux blanc. Arôme reste assez discret mais laisse un léger bouquet de pelure d’agrumes et de citron et d’épice. En bouche, cette version hivernale est nettement au dessus de la version régulière de Wittekerke. Un profile épais rempli de bonnes saveurs fruitées allant du pamplemousse, à la mandarine et orange, le tout sur un côté de coriandre très agréable. Le tout comme mentionné avant, est épais, retient un bon profile de froment et de levure conférant un côté presque de bubblegum. Je note un malt pale/cara pour un fini poussiéreux mais aussi une pointe de pomme rappelant le cidre.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2012
750mL bottle. Poured cloudy, medium orangey-golden with a dense white head. The aroma picked up sweeter oranges and wheaty notes with orange zest, white pepper, and cloves around.. soft and well-balanced. The flavor found sweet oranges, bready malts, and a touch of honey at the core.. cloves, coriander, and tart wheat around.. fairly sugary on the back-end and finish. Light-medium bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. nice brew, but a bit too sweet.

drowland (6761) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2011
12/21/11. 750mL bottle. Very hazy orange pour with a thick, creamy barely off-whire head that cuts in half but sticks forever and laces in cloudy sheets. Aroma of light baked breads, floral orange peel, biscuits, pale malts, and a touch of phenolics. Sweet, bready flavor with a touch of salty chicken soup, coriander, orange peel, and sweet cream. Meh.

deanso (6503) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2013
75cl bottle shared at a Ratebeer evening at ABCBeers. Thin white head. Hazy blond pour. Refreshing but nothing special.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Dark straw, dirty looking, large white foamy head.   Looks like an American example in that its not pale enough.   Wheaty nose, no real spices.   Very faint citrus aspect.   Very dull on the tongue.   Wheaty overall, but not spicy.   Well hidden 7.5% ABV.   Finish just as it started, wheaty and without much spicy excitement.   Not one of the better Witbiers to come out of Belgium.   Not bad, but very boring.

bottle, cloudy orange golden pour with some lace and thin skim of foam, aroma is fruity yeast, flavors of nail polish, strawberries, pool water chemicals, decent finish but doesnt taste anything like a witbier

PorterPounder (6143) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Light orange murky pour - soft snow white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is lemony and yeasty, a hint of coriander. Flavor is full bodied and fresh. Pick up some lemony accents, a bit of sweet cookie dough, some coriander spiciness, slightly salty in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick and velvety. Pretty solid.
