simontomlinson (38) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
Unusual can whereby all the lid came off with the pull. Small white head immediately left a skim on a hazy yellow coloured body with light carbonation. Very fruity aroma of orange, lemon & yeast. Thin on the palate, minimal carbonation, smooth. Feels quite flat. Zesty tastes of tangerine, lemon, citrus, with yeast & spices. Sweeter on the aft.

MrTipple (3814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Esters, wheat and other grain malts, light spices. Hazy, pale gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More grain and wheat malts, spices, light bitterness continues, some floral notes, soft carbonation, light bodied, bitter, lightly grassy and grainy finish. OK Witbier, yet nothing too exciting. Can from Whole Foods, Kensington.

Can at home. Smooth and malty sweet. Orange and citrus notes. Medium carbonation. Easy drinking beer. Not bad at all.

metalspice (735) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2016
Tåkete gyllengult med fint hvitt skum. Pære veldig fremtredende i duften sammen med litt moden banan og krydder. pære også smaken sammen med mer tradisjonelle smaker for en wit. Litt tørr avslutning.

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Can, best before 15.4.2017, from cogo, drunk 8/9/16, thanks, Christer!
A small, white head tops a lightly hazy, bright, tangerine-golden body. Retention is moderate.
With a bit of age on it, the spices/herbs have faded leaving more Belgian esters (light lemon, tangerine, apple and a hint of banana) and balanced maltiness (cookies, vanilla, biscuit, wheat). It’s exceptionally clean, as Aegir has proven to be 100% of the time now, through 6 or 7 of their beers. It’s nice they leave some yeast behind, which no doubts aids in this. Light bubble gum, juicy citrus and soft honey lingering on the finish, with very gentle acidity and pepper phenols and no alcohol.
In the mouth there’s light herbal dryness and pepper, balancing a touch of honey, lots of dry wheat and a soft, moderately carbonated texture. Very mild flavors all around, but the malt and wheat is highly enjoyable, and complements the phenols in keeping the beer dry. Again, nothing flashy, but just solid and very well-executed to-style.

jamestulloch (3592) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 16, 2016
Can from Cork & Cask. Hazy pale golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon peel, yellow pepper and sliced raw potato. Flavour of lemon zest, coriander and tangerine. Medium body with a smooth, creamy texture. Soft fizz. Bright and refreshing. Very lemony.

fantti (956) - FINLAND - AUG 4, 2016
Tölkki @ Viking Gabriella. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on sitruunaisen ja pippurisen mausteista belgihiivaa, yrttiä, viljaa ja greippiä. Maku on edelleen sitruunainen ja pippurinen, nyt hiivaisuus on tuntuvampaa ja viljaakin tuntuu enemmän. Suutuntuma on raikas, yllättävän napakasti humaloitu ja kuivahko. Hyvin tehty, hieman humaloidumpi witbier, johon saatu hyvin makua raikkauden kärsimättä.

Yellow color. Medium carbonation. Aromas of coriander, oranges, and yeast. A bit more of everything than traditional wits. A tad more body. A tad sweeter, More coriander. More hops. Finishes dry, with the coriander and hops sticking for a while. Nice break from the usual, but won’t blow you away.

tandembrauer (1250) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2016
Can at home. Pours hazy golden with little white head. Aroma of oranges, coriander, some sulfur. Some sweetness, some finishing bitterness. Thin bodied, highly carbonated.
