DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2003
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.

jgb9348 (5553) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2003
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.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - SEP 19, 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.

In a can. Ginger taste with almost no aroma. It had a strange aftertaste.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2003
11.2 OZ can. Cloudy straw yellow with a small white head and yeast chunks. Peppery with a citrus tinge. Ends sweet.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2003
A cloudy straw color with a white bubbly head. The aroma is wheaty with some hint of citrus. The flavor is of wheats and some citrus, lemon with sweet notes.

sloth (2786) - 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 (5006) - 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.
