Alengrin (7284) - BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Witbier made with the same ingredients as lambic - not as weird as it may seem, seen the historical link between the two styles. Hazy peach blonde beer with medium cream white head; wheatiness in the nose, bready, peachy esters. Soft, mellow taste, gentle wheaty sourishness, yeasty with a light spiciness, subtle herbal hop bitterishness in the finish. Simple, yet balanced, quite refined and very quenching. A side by side tasting with its organic version would prove interesting. Scopey (19305) - Oldmeldrum, SCOTLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle (couple of years old I expect) at home. It pours hazy golden with a thick white head. The nose is . The taste is soft, sweetish, doughy, slightly musty, banana and some spice. The taste is bitter-sweet, spice, hay, dough, light candy, banana bread and some sweet apple/pear. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nothing much exciting going on here. A pretty so-so Witbier.

Blond coloured beer with an avarge white head and some light carbonation. Full yeasty, vanilla light herby hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is light bitter yeasty hinted. Linger dry yeasty ending with some grainy hints. Koelschtrinker (26511) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Das Bier ist überaus mild und wird im Antrunk sowie Mittelteil von einem bananigen Aroma beherrscht. Auch im Abgang nimmt dieses Aroma wieder den Hauptteil ein. Eigentlich schmeckt es von Anfang bis Ende gleich ohne Aromenwechsel. An einem heißen Sommertag genau das Richtige, ansonsten Durchschnitt.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat with some yeast. I don’t get too much spice or fruit in the aroma, which is disappointing.
The flavor is also a little bit lacking. I get a lot of wheat, but only a little bit of pepper and coriander and even less fruit. I get a little bit of orange peel, but it is very faint.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dedollewaitor (17659) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle @ Grobbendonk, Belgium. Pours unclear golden with a small white layer of foam on top. Nose is yeast, wheat and cookie dough. Flavor is yeasty and quite bready. Medium bodied.
