Deadponyo (16) - Tours, FRANCE - JUL 11, 2016
Je la considère comme un excellent compromis entre une bière blanche et une bière qui a un goût bien prononcé. Pourtant à un degré peu élevé elle possède pourtant de très bons arômes qui sont presque similaires à des arômes de bières plus fortes.

Zarrach76 (270) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2017
Une blanche légère typique, avec une mousse blanche fine, une couleur jaune/vert pâle légèrement troublée... Nez sur le caramel de circonstance, les céréales pâles (froment en plus de l’orge), les sucres de malt, de belles pointes de citron, d’orange et de pamplemousse, de coriandre, de girofle et de poivre, des notes de résineux, d’œillet, de sucre candi, de guimauve, de chocolat au lait, de noisette... Très beau arômes de blanche, loin des standards industriels du genre avec le caramel et le citron omniprésent. La carbonatation est moyenne à légère, l’alcool soutient bien l’ensemble avec son modeste 5% non moins efficace, la texture est ronde, pas sur l’eau du tout, un peu de sucre résiduel (très caramel) et une légère amertume. Le final est un peu court, mais soyons réaliste, ce n’est ni une Imperial Stout, un Barley Wine ou une double IPA... Bue bien fraiche une bière très agréable, à boire sans cette foutue rondelle de citron, avec un bon goût de céréales, de caramel et d’agrumes, comme espéré. Pas à tomber à la renverse mais un bon crû dans le style ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Light, creamy and smooth with a pleasant tartness and good citrous notes. Smooths out and finishes with a hint of corriander and elderflower. It is wonderfully refreshing.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 On tap at the Jaguar Cafe, Montpellier. Looks like Hoegaarden, and is served in one of that brewer’s glasses. Quite a hard, crispy edge to the flavour (a sneaky bit of bitterness). Smooth and shiny mouthfeel. Good lemon and wheat, good balance. Great Wit, served in good nick.

Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2003
Reminds me VERY much of Delirium Tremens which is a good thing. Small head on it that quickly disappeared. Cloudy honey orange colour. It is not as full bodied as a Delirium Tremens but it is only 5% so it doesn't need to blend as much as the DTs. Lightly spicy, fruity and not bitter. No foul banana flavours presented themselves to me in this brew. As for aroma it is strong in volatiles but if you enjoy it in Delirium Tremens you should be right.

(draft) Thickly hazed lemon body with small white head. Aroma is lemon, yeast, wheat. Taste is medium sweet, wheat, lemon/tart, very well balanced. Body is light, tart, some acidic.

rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2005
On draught at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Hazy pale golden. Big fruity(banana, canned fruits) nose. Butter/Diacetyl lurks behind. The flavour is immensely big. Mouthfeel is light. Taste is smallish notes of choriander with that curacao touch and an underlying sourish tone. I found this very estery, although "it is not supposed to be so". This very tasty Wit very well held up to the expectations of the opening of Delirium Café in Göteborg!

teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 27, 2014
Keg at FOB, Rimini. It pours a hazy pale straw color with a large white head. Aroma is grainy and citrusy, with notes of wheat, hay, banana, orange peel, tangerine, grass. Taste is lightly sweet and medium crispy/grainy/grassy, with notes of citrus, grains, hay, wheat, orange peel and leaves. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, excellent wit

Fruity aroma with clear pale yellow colour. Sweet fruit flavour with fizzy palate.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2005
Featherweight Belgian witbier that ranks high on my list of favourite summer quenchers. The palate is a little skinny for some tastes and the finish a little abrupt but it’s hard to beat when the mercury is pushing into the thirties. It pours a cloudy lemon colour with a healthy white head. The nose has mouth-watering grapefruit notes and a little spice. The body is gossamer-thin and quenching. There are hints of banana and tea and the mildest of finishes. Nothing very complex here but it’s very more-ish. (Bottle)
