sloth (2625) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Thick, white head, splattered lacing, hangs for awhile. Spicey, yeasty nose. Hazy gold/white. Light bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Citrusy, wheat, spicey flavors. Dry finish, good wit.

Aurelius (4637) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2003
This was something of a disappointment, perhaps due to the fact that it's marketed in the 11.2 oz cans in Florida. I bet it's better from the bottle. I usually enjoy wit and am charitable, but this was a little to tart-clingy and cheap tasting. Bad can, cloudy lemony color. Tangy, a little spicy. Palate hung around way too long and left me wanting to spit after a bit.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Bottle labelled "Wittekerke" poured a light straw color. Had fruity/spice aroma. The taste was slightly citrusy with a nice sour finish. I could definitely drink this all summer long.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2003
Cloudy with a pale gold color right from the can. Zesty fruit aroma. Light flavor with hints of citrus and some other fruit that add to the character. Very refreshing beer, especially for a hot day in Brussels. Has a nice spicy aftertaste.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Nice easy drinkin' Wit - it's all about the lemon puddin' pie, tart and tangy; and dry at the finish. On the thinner side. (Mine was labelled Wittekerke)

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Nice looking beer, lots of white head with a light hazy body. I'm not an expert on wheats, but I felt the flavor was a little weak. Contrary to other raters, I didn't pick up any spice or orange flavors. Hmm...

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2003
Sold as Wittekerke, from tap, Café Morshuis in Albergen. Herbal, strong citrusflavor. Strong lemonaroma. Apple, chalk and just a bit milky. Nice and fresh.

jsquire (3724) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Damn near white out of the Wittekerke bottle with a white head. Odd nose of lemon, vinegar and Play-Doh. Some spice flavors with lots of bread dough and something artificial that I can't quite place. Just odd, and I usually like witbier.

3.8
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2003
An enjoyable witbier. The appearance was correct for the style, hazy whitish yellow. Head diminished slowly but surely. Aroma was primarily of wheat with some faint spiciness in the back, nice. The flavor was that of a good witbier, wheat, then some very gentle spiciness, and a touch of orange on the finish. Enjoyable.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Clear white color. A light fruity aroma. Has a medium bodied palate with a light watery character. I had my doubts, beer in a can. expecting more from a Witbier. Still a highly drinkable beer.
