I had this from the bottle... sour and lemony. I like the taste of this stuff but I don’t know whether I’d want to drink this stuff all night long...

can @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- hazy lemon straw color, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is as much lemon as it is wheat or malt, with mild spices showing up in the palate. Minimal biter in a short finish. Very average, maybe even below.

BOTTLE 25 CL. Look: cloudy pale yellow/straw, small white creamy head. Aroma: very weak, grains, husk, some herbal hop notes, lightly toasted bread. Taste: grainy, husky, some wheat tartness and light fruitiness. Watery and bland wit, without the traditional flavourings and spice.

"Shoulda had this in the summer :) light yellow pur, white cap that quickly disappears. aroma of cut grass and citrus, with a hint of spice. flavor is good. similar to the aroma but far too light. Body tingly and light as well. i know this is a light style, but this is a touch too light/thin. refreshing, though."

This beer comes very close to tasting like what I expect a Witbier to taste like.

 This is a very nice wheat beer that I’m glad I picked up. It has a nice mix of flavors that are all traditional for the style. Would drink again.

Het typische witbier van dertien in een dozijn, genre Hoegaarden. Dan zijn er veel en veel betere te vinden

MarcoDL (2226) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Ordinary and a bit boring witbier. Body is somewhat thin, tastes like the usual, wheaty, fruity and sweetish. Mwoah.

DocJitsu (969) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours a cloudy, very light golden color with a small white head. Clean, light honey and champagne nose. Fuller body than expected. Mild, quaffable brew with some honey and some tart champagne. Finish my very mildly.

dlihcsnatas (297) - Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Hazy dull yellow brew with small head that fades to slight ring around the edge fairly fast. Smells of grain, hints of citrus. Taste is mostly corriander with some hints at the grain and lemon zest. Fairly refreshing on a hot day after working in the yard.

HuskerTan (498) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Can. A- Citrus, wheat, spice. A- Pale yellow color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Ginger, grapefruit, spice, wheat, cough medicine. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, bland finish. O- This can was right on the line of the best buy date. Not sure if that factored into it much, but this was a very poor Belgian White considering it is supposed to be an authentic Belgian White. It just didn’t resemble the style I am used to at all.
