Robe blonde orangée, opalescente. Mousse éphémère, carbonation moyenne. Nez bien levuré,avec une légère note de banane. En bouche, banane plus présente, avec une touche acidulée de froment. Pas mal de corps, ce qui la rend assez corpulente pour une blanche à faible degré. Pas mal cependant, et reste rafraîchissante.

Clear orange in color with a short head. Subdued aroma that includes some coconut notes though I’m not sure why. Coconut on the palate as well, which demonstrates more qualities of a Wit than the nose. Still not great. Decent carbonation but soft on flavor. This beer is a month past code, but even fresh couldn’t be much more interesting.

Drake (15300) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottled. Pours a clear amber color with a large fizzy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral and herbal notes with pale malts. The taste is sweet malts caramel and faint herbal notes. Medium bodied. Never would have guess this was a witbier, but it was definitely the blanche we opened.

Travlr (30309) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Hazy yellow color, small white coca-cola head. Aroma of lemon, apricot, peach. Taste is lemony straw. Little carbonation. Hmm.

75cl flip-top bottle, thanks Céccile for bringing it back from France, shared with Ajax25g. Dorée, brumeuse, col fin blanc, disparaissant très vite. Pour une bière blanche de style belge, cette dernière est vraiment trompeuse sur la couleur. Arôme malté, grains rappelant un peu une pâte à pâtissier dans la levure. En bouche, le fruité est très modéré voire quasi absent de ce que l’on s’imagine pour une blanche. Je note un fruité léger avec une absence d’épices, le tout marqué par un peu d’orange. Le profile belge est absent, le tout rappelant plus une levure allemande avec une pointe d’ester pomme. Reste fruitée, fleurie avec en fin de bouche un côté mielleux fleuri. Le tout est fade, et garde ce profile très français. Pas mauvaise, mais terriblement banale.

Bottled. Nice colour, pleasant in mouth. A bit disapointed by the taste, i was hoping something more spicy. A good beer though.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle. bottled stated that it needed to be consumed before January 08. Hmm. It certainly was not much of a itbeer. It poured with a much darker color, albeit with a nice head. Flavors and aroma both were dominated by sourness, some funkiness but not much else. perhaps that is close to an aged fantome? Certainly, some bacterial infection might have been present.

Swing top bottle(750ml). -bought all 4 Alphand beers in a local souvenir and liquor store in Risoul, Hautes Alpes, France. Costs ridiculous high 5.50€ per bottle. This one worth every cent that I’ve paid for it.
For sure the best Alphand beer. Hazy orange coloured, medium sized firm white head, perfumey fresh fruity and yeasty nose. The aroma is wheaty and fruity (lemon, orange, tangerine) with slight honey and spicy notes. Nice lemony acidity in the finish. Refreshing and highly enjoyable brew.

Marko (7529) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 22, 2007
0.75l bottle courtesy of and shared with ozujsko (thanks!). This poured a hefeweizen like hazy orange colour with a medium to big sized head that went away slowly. It looked like a hefe but it sure smelled like a wit. Fruit yoghurty nose, hints of yeast, maybe bubblegum, bananas and brown sugar. Interesting, but not terribly pleasant. The taste was surprisingly nice. Yoghurty lacticity, pleasant and refreshing lemony acidity, heavy bubblegum. Overall, surprisingly pleasant. One of the best wits I’ve had. Guess both me and ozujsko will go against the grain.

Hazy blond color. Fruity aroma (peach). Strong taste. Smooth wheat, spicy, vegetable, light fuitness. Original, not exceptional.
