MustangMarkF (246) - Coventry, West Midlands, - APR 8, 2014
250ml Bottle. This pours a very cloudy light golden body topped with a medium head that soon disperses into a thick lacing. Its aroma is coriander citrus with slight hints of malt and yeast. The taste is very minimal and hardly noticeable when drinking. A second sip gives some herbs, orange and malts but its really subtle but afterwards theres a smoky sweet finish. This beer is for you if you like a light taste but there are lots more complex wit beers out there

Alengrin (4713) - BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Bockors Hoegaarden epigone, enjoyed in an outdoors caf in Ghent. Deep golden blonde with good fizz, frothy snow white head. Soft wheat character with the usual coriander and curaao notes, relatively subtly so (fortunately, Id even add), refreshing touch of lemon, bit bready, straw; soft and lean body, banana accent, lightly spiced with a fresh lemon peel accent and of course the coriander, light wheat sourishness, sweetish bready malts, bit yeasty finish. Boring and totally lacking in originality but technically okay - just another one in the standardized witbier style. Nevertheless, considering Bockor (now Vander Ghinste) used to make only plain lagers and awfully sweet lambic derivatives before their Omer became a national hit, this is certainly decent for what it pretends to be and surely no less acceptable than Hoegaarden Witbier itself, perhaps even a bit more genuine.
