Bottle. Pale hazy yellow beer with a residual head. Aroma of lemons and wheat. Taste is citrus lemon, yeast and wheat. Watery. Not very good.

Not much smell in this beer. Very dry tasting and similar to Heineken. Pours clear.

Woohoo! Belgian wit in a can! But really, it looks, smells, and tastes just like any other Belgian wheat beer, maybe a hint more lemon. Meh.

Draft at Hupple. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of artificial lemon, weeds and not much more. Flavour is light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

I poured an 11.2oz can into a tumbler. It had a best before date of 9/29/13 and cost $3.29 ($0.29 per ounce).
Appearance: Pale, washed-out yellow. Forms a large, white, foamy head which retains and laces quite well.
Smell: No skunkiness thankfully, but not much of anything else. Hints of wheat, but no spice or other appealing aromatics.
Taste: I thought this beer deserved another shot since the bottle I reviewed a few months ago was obviously old. It reeked of skunkiness and just tasted off. The can is definitely a step up, but not by leaps and bounds. All the spoiled taste I had in the bottle is gone, but itís not replaced with anything particularly interesting. Itís lacking that distinct coriander and orangepeel zest I look for in the style. Though there is an almost minty character on the backend. Otherwise, itís mild all around, but thereís really nothing off-putting about it. Iíve had this on tap and it was noticeably more robust, so I can honestly recommend that serving if you can find it.
Drinkability: Though not all that flavorful, Wittekerke is at least easy to drink. The mouthfeel is thin with gentle carbonation. It goes down smooth and has a clean aftertaste. It would definitely be refreshing if it were very cold on a hot day. It seems lighter than its 5% ABV weight, though. It doesnít seem to take full advantage of its body.

Very bright yellow, slightly cloudy on the pour with a white head. Fruit aroma (citrus) with a touch of malt. Sweet and light flavor with a hint of sour. Very clean palate that gives a short finish. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.

Can. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma is bread, cracker, lemon, a little spice. Taste is a little sweet with a study malt background. Pleasant, yet mild, finish.

The appearance of this beer is a hazy very light yellow color with a medium white head that fades quickly and with some medium-grade sediment , and the aroma is reminiscent of lemon, wheat, and a hint of dough yeast. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, and the palate combines a light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish.
