Can. Poured a hazy straw with a medium-sized white head. Aroma and flavor were light citrus, coriander. Wheat is present but muted -- some light banana and bubble gum. Soft carbonation. Refreshing, nice, forgettable, kind of bland.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a pale beer with a not very long lasting head. Looks like a lemon soda. A lot of lemon smell. Taste is watery. Really boring. The palate is weak. Very watery and thin. It taste like a 0% beer.

11.2oz served into a pilsener glass.
A - 2 fingers of fluffy white head on top of a very pale straw body with a slight chill haze.
S - Green wheat, noble hops, sweet bread.
T - Wheat and a tangy lemon flavor upfront. Sugary malts, light coriander spice.
M - Smooth and light feel, perfect carbonation, light bodied.
A great summer beer. Simple flavors and excellent feel. Kinda reminds me of diluted lemonade. Very refreshing.
Serving type: can

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I poured an 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass. There was no decipherable freshness date. It cost $2.90 ($0.26 per ounce).
Appearance: Extremely pale, lemon-skin yellow. Opaque from haziness. Forms a large, bright white, foamy head which mostly dissipates but does lace the glass well.
Smell: Light skunky aroma and a hint of lemon juice. Not as bad as a Heineken, but no reason it should be this bad considering the bottle is brown.
Taste: If there ever were an example of the Belgians not making their own beer well, Wittekerke would be it. This isnít just a poor example for the style, itís just a poor beer overall. Iím inclined to believe the bottle was old and/or subjected to a lot of distress. Though glancing over other reviews online, what I have isnít all that unusual.
Take a pretty typical Belgian Witbier, water it down and skunk it up and you have Wittekerke. Itís not nearly as flavorful as Hoegaarden or any American versions for that matter. Light pale malt character up front coupled with a light lemonpeel flavor throughout. A slight candy taste on the finish followed by a strong sourness (and not in that Brettanomyces way). Not a terrible beer, and Iím inclined to believe a fresh version would be decent. As it stands, itís tolerable but not all that enjoyable.
Drinkability: Though the taste to Wittekerke wasnít all that pleasant, it wasnít difficult to drink. The body is light and thin with noticeable carbonation, but nothing that gets stuck in the throat or feels too intense. Though quite light at 5% ABV, this beer drinks like something even lighter and more sessionable. I could see a non-spoiled version being quite refreshing.

Draft at Fermentation. Cloudy yellow pour with a thick white head. Doughy, wheat aroma with lingering citrus. Lemony, starchy wheat flavor with a subtle spice hint at the end.

Poured from a can. I did not like this beer at all. Overly weak. Water with a touch of corn.
