Frahmo (248) - Idaho, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Light golden pour. Very little head. Light palate with a barnyard tinge. Light finish with some higher carbonation then expected. Not super great, but it went down quick.

ronaldtheriot (1180) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Wittekerke has a thick, white head, and a very cloudy, lemon-yellow appearance, with bubbles streams and lots of tan chunks floating about. A bit of lacing is left behind. The aroma is of pungent, bread and yeast, with a faint citrus and sweet back note. Taste is of the strong yeast, some mint or other odd herb, wheat bread, and lots of tap water. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Wittekerke finishes semi-dry, easy-drinking, and rather bland. It’s not too good, really. RJT

trapez (1512) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of wheat, fruit and a tiny hint of yeast. Unclear light yellow colour with White head. Mild fruity flavor with wheat and a bit of citrus.

alexsdad06 (5252) - Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Can at home. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, bready malts, light fruit and spices with a slight tart character. Not very exciting.

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Pour out of can, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grain, biscuit, bread, hints of earth, spice, slight lemon, touch of honey, cardboard in there. Taste is a mix of sweet biscuit, off fruity, rotten fruit notes, hints of earth, spice, slight grass, finishing very sweet.

GSAP (465) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 Allemaal matig, waar aroma niet goed is met zijn karton, mufheid en flarden kotszuur. Smaak is stukken beter, met een licht snoepzuurtje en flauwe prikloze sinas. Tap @ Ascotel, Villeneuve d’Asq, FR.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2013
330 ml bottle into pint glass, 41010 bottle code. Pours very hazy bright golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, pepper, coriander, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, spice, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, clove, pepper, coriander, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, coriander, light clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a very short bit. Good balance and complexity of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with decent robustness and a very dry finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good witbier. Good balance of yeast, malt, and spice flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

tderoeck (4371) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2013
17/XI/13 - 25cl bottle @ Horeca Expo (Gent) - BB: n/a (2013-1077)

Little cloudy (maybe from the glass) pale straw yellow beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: grains, some yeast, bread, little metallic. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: pretty sweet, sugary start, some orange peel, little bitter, no coriander though. Aftertaste: little sourish, sweet and sugary, orange peel, bit of honey, slightly bitter. Very poor excuse for a Belgian wit.

Marheb (1944) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Une blanche simple et efficace avec un petit kick herbacé, florale. Corps aérien, duveteux qui se prête parfaitement à la dégustation.
