Bottle. Have to agree with funkybrewster... need some more ’pop’. Pours a murky chalky orange yellow with little head. Aroma is fruity, orange, heavy coriander. Flavor follows, medium sweetness, no trace of alcohol really, but not a lot of definition, kind of gummy, fruity, yeasty.

Trübes gelbes Bier mit einer geringen weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, fruchtig, würzig. Geschmack würzig malzig, fruchtig, hefig.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2014
Sampled at Kerstbierfestival Essen 2014. Very hazy yellow color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, sweetness, lightly alcohol, slightly herbs or spices. Medium body and carbonation. Quite decent.

Bottle; poured a amber gold color with a big frothy head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, candi sugar; not much spice. Aroma more of a Belgian strong. Flavor again more of a strong ale. Strong flavor, a touch boozy. Dark fruit notes, and candi sugar. Ok

jmgreenuk (4980) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2014
Tap at Het Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is yeast, wheaty malt, light banana light medicinal. The flavour is light sour, acid citrus with a sharp, crisp, refreshing dry mineral citrus alcohol bitter palate. Moderate to light bodied with average carbonation.

I like it but it had a lot of burn for a witbier. Flavor resembles a Belgian Strong.

Whoa. This is very dynamic. Quite sweet and feuity and almost tastes like candy is in it.

Bottle. 7.5%. Best before 11.07.15. Pours a cloudy/murky orange/amber with a thick off-white/yellowish head. Great lacing. Tart to sour aroma, with notes of citrus, orange peel and yeast, and with a distinct perfumy overtone; has a somewhat piña colada-like feel to it. Flavour is quite perfumy and grainy, and with a medium bitterness. Finish is more perfume, with a lingering tart bitterness. Overall, I think the perfume-notes ruin the beer; it’s not too bad in the aroma, but in the flavour it’s quite disruptive. Otherwise it would probably be pretty okay. But alas! 23.11.14.

Bottle pour. Cloudy golden with large foamy white head. Lemon, wheat, bread, and yeast. Light body. Sweet taste with lemon wheat.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Cloudy orange, loose white head. Smells like melon, lightly spicy and some woody notes. taste is sweet, and, uh, detergent? Some weird artificial sweet flavors and soap. Also some spicy flavors. Odd...

750 ml. Cloudy orange-golden body is quite active and sustains a creamy disc of foam. Aroma is lemon candy, bready yeast and touches of bitter florals and wood. Tastes of coriander, dried galangal, white grape must, and oxidized lemon. Dry finish has some cardboard, wood and wheat flour. Light-medium body is soft and has smooth carbonation.
