JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2004
A very hazy, light yellow. Head is white and fluffy, formed of many tiny, close-fitting bubbles. Lots of lacing. I don't detect any banana or cloves in this aroma; instead, I am hit with a peppery, citric tangerine aroma mixed with cereal grains -- it reminds me of Apple Jacks cereal. Fruity, orange/lemon flavor, with spicy black pepper and green herbs (cilantro?). Soft, pillowy mouthfeel. Delicious. Totally underrated.

Love this example of a Wit. Great summertime brew. This is one beer that I will have to make myself.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 18, 2004
Moderate banana and clove aroma. Pale straw body is hazy and has a short, frothy, white head. Lightly sweet flavor becomes a lightly bitter, lightly acidic finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: your run of the mill canned witbier?

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2004
Big,white head, pale yellow,hazy color. Deep wheat aroma. Super fresh! I'm wishing I had more food/spice experience to conjure more descriptors. The regular gang are in attendance:coriander, curacao,anything else? Very bright, floral, honeyish, lemony (but don't put a lemon in it, please! Let beer be beer!( Soft texture, wonderful drinkability, some graininess, but still creamy, luxurious. I could drink this by the pitcher on a hot summer day! Tastes great anytime, though.

Crockett (1089) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2004
I guess this is the correct beer. And that was a tiny bottle. Honey golden pour. Soapy small head. Grassy aroma. Citric honey flavours standout. Soap and some coriander. Sweet and mild. A good example but a little sleepy in the finish. Palate is average. Good overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 This was the first wit I really fell back when I was really into wits. That phase has passed now. +++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz can this brew pours a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head that left decent lacing. Very cloudy with lots of sediment. A light scent that is sweet and spicy with some citrus definitely coming through. Light lemon flavor. Very mild wheat taste. Just a hint of spice. Medium length finish. A nice and refreshing wit

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 250 ml Wittekerke bottle (best before May 2004). Usual pale hazy yellow colour, reminiscent of pineapple juice. Rather dim aroma with, unusually for a witbier, some dry malty notes and little in the way of citrus. Can’t say I picked up any coriander, or other spices, either. Much the same on the palate. Thin and bland with a dry finish, again with malt rather than acidity. The zingy citrus crispness that I expected was entirely absent. Perhaps I just got a substandard bottle but, overall, I found this drinkable, but lifeless.

Ungstrup (34315) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2004
The aroma is dominated by citrus. The color is an unclear yellow and it has a fine head. The flavor is complex with notes of citrus, malt, corriander, youghurt and yeast. I don't like the youghurt sourness in a beer.

Wittekerke bottle: Poured a nice cloudy yellow with a generous white head. mild aroma of coriander and other spices. light mouthfeel and a tad bit watery with tastes of coriander and light citrus.

Hazy yellow with solid white cloud cover. Yeasty nose. Smooth and lightly sweet and quietly mellow.
