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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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...
