Aroma of citrus and wheat, cloudy yellow, small white head. Malt and wheat flavour, with a hint of lemon. Medium bodied, good mouthfeel, dry. Really good!

11.2 oz can. Pours a very cloudy dark yellow with a bright white head and losts of lacing. Bit of a yeasty aroma. Tart, crisp flavor but not as estery as I would like - does not have that banana-like quality that most wheats have. Overall, a decent summer refresher. A bit of an odd mouthfeel to it, kind of an artificial pasty feel to it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden colour with a large-bubbled white head. Smells of green apples, spices and a bit of wheat. Medium-bodied; Strong fruity yeast characteristics with some malt thrown in. Aftertaste fairly clean, but nice and fruity. Overll, pretty good for a belgie white! I bought this 33 cL bottle at Green's Beverages in Atlanta, Georgia and sampled it on 26-September-2003.

Thies label clearly reads wittekerke. However it drinks much more like a traditional wheat than most other Belgium beers. It's a bit on the thin side but has great flavor. Extremly carbonated. I liked it, drank light but packed with wheat flavor.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
