COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (collodal by cold). The cloudy appearance is created at low temperature but disappears when the beer gets warmer or when it is kept too long in the cold. Fine fruity with a scent of the used spice, coriander and bitter orange. Smooth beer, thirst-quenching but mild, slightly acidulous, powdery consistency on the tongue, not bitter

Solid, unpretentious wit; a bit thin, un-spicy, and astringent (bt)

Very light-coloured wheatbeer which is highly carbonated (as you can see it from the lasting white yeast). Fruitful aroma with fragrances of wheat and citrus. As it is labelled as the worlds best wheat beer I expected the taste to be more mallow but the 4,5% alcohol level and the high carbon-dioxide content makes this Belgian all in all a bit watery.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 10, 2010
03/10 0.75 l bottle from Vrutak store in Zagreb. It poured hazy body with medium to bigger head. Nice aroma of yeast, fruits, coriander and vanilla sugar. Flavor was no exception to Witbiers, very weak, only some orange and banana fruitiness and malt sweetness. Coriander and cinnamon also felt, especially in the finish that is short anyhow. Well, wouldnt really mind for a fuller thing here.

Bottle: Pours a lemonade pale yellow. bubbly, frothy white head. Cloudy, settling clear. Persistent bubbles throughout the entire sitting. Lively to say the least. Nose- Citrus lemon, cardamom, coriander. What a crisp, dry, grainy beer. lighter mouthfeel. Brief aftertaste. Really enjoyable on a warm day. Cheers

Rating #470, bottle from Lagersalget

Light yellow and unclear beer with ok head. Aroma is very refreshing and delicate with citrus and lavender. It really makes you want to drink the beer. Flavor is citrus and some banana and lavender. Some wheat malt. Bitterness is quite obvious and maybe a bit too strong for this light beer. Medium palate. A pleasing witbier.

tmoreau (3927) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2010
33 cl bottle poured to my favorite 1/2 pint taster, with a hazed, straw color, abundant, white, small bubbled & frothy, meringue-like head foam, and thick, lasting, curtainy lacing. The aroma was light wheat, light herb & spice as coriander, a touch of sweetness, and a fruity, almost apricot scent. The flavor continued all notes in a light fashion, adding a hint of orange rind, with the head tickling the nose on every sip. Maybe a little thin on the body, but effervescent, refreshing, and subtly dry.

23/11/2010 - 25cl bottle @ home

Cloudy dirty yellow white to ocher white beer. Huge towering white creamy head. Lasts long, nice lacing. Aroma: herbs and spices, flowers and grasses, touch of hops. MF: nice carbon, smooth texture, medium body. Taste: floral notes, citrus fruits, herbs, a little honey, wheat, some yeast. Aftertaste: more citrus, some hops. As interesting as the taste is, as short is the aftertaste. Too bad, this costs some points.
