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.

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 (5112) - 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.

Une blanche simple et efficace avec un petit kick herbacé, florale. Corps aérien, duveteux qui se prête parfaitement à la dégustation.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Taste floral, tart. I thought this was so so. I wouldn't drink this again. Disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spice, hay, tart in the aroma, pours blonde almost white color with a thin never-ending head and excellent lacing. Light slightly creamy earth, spice, slight tart, a touch of sweetness

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2013
On tap. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt, light tartness. Flavor of pale, bready malt up front with a light, tangy sour wheat malt, light fruits. Pleasant and drinkable. 7/4/7/3/14 (3.5/5)

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Can @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a milky light yellow appearance with a white head. A bit grainy, lemon zesty, refreshing, floral aroma. Light bodied, sweet wheat, a touch watery, minimal hop flavor. Not all that hard to drink and spices aren’t overdone like many Witbiers but this still isn’t all that interesting.

Appearance is larger white head with yellow-orange haze. Aroma is a little sweet with a typical wheat taste, but a light body. Overall just not the greatest.
