14.02.2015, 0,33l bottle sampled @ Bergen International Whisky & Beer Festival:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry citrusy, yeast, citrus peel, weeds, hay, flowers, wheat, citrus. Taste is slightly sour-ish floral, sour grass, flowers, weeds, citrus peel, sorrel, minerals, yeast, paper. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

caesar (7562) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle from de Molen beershop, bottled 31/09/2014 BB 31/03/2015, large sample. Hazy to cloudy golden color, short frothy white head. Aroma is quite fruity, lemon zest, orange, citrus, spicy, bit peppery even, some grainy wheat. Quite fruity in taste, slight tart even. Bit dry in the finish. On the spicy side for a witbier with a twist of tart lemon and orange, like a lemon cheesecake. Not as full on wheat in flavor as most other witbiers.

tlind2 (1891) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2015
[email protected] Cloudy pale golden color, white head. Sour aroma. Sour, buttery flavor with lemon, toasty finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. More lambic than wit. Meh.

jookos (7296) - FINLAND - MAY 19, 2015
[email protected] hki. Golden hazy. Orange zesty, green fruity, slight yeasty doughy nose. Malts, hay. Feels a bit off though. Med light bodied. Lush orange flavoured, slight tart. Long pale malty, orange zesty finish, didnt like it at all at first, but sort of nice in the end. Some sweetness, bit tart. Feels a bit off, as said.

Aroma of citrus peel, slightly sour lemon, yeasty notes. Flavour is moderate tart with a light bitter finish. Nicely refreshing and easily drinkable, pretty good Witbier.

Alengrin (6202) - BELGIUM - APR 19, 2015
An English take on the Belgian witbier style, with snow white, rather thin and loose head and cloudy, egg-like yellow colour with somewhat greenish hue, a bit darker than usual for the style. Aroma of lots of wheat, lemon zest, soap, green plums, coriander, gooseberries, hint of fresh orange juice, lots of baker’s yeast especially after adding the deposit, floral and herbal hops, talcum, earth. Crisp taste, sweetish and fruity in onset, citric, with indeed vividly sourish impressions of both lemon and orange juice, very refreshing on a sunny spring day like this; quite spritzy carbonation, supple but somewhat powdery, yeasty mouthfeel; wheat sourishness underneath with a hint of bready malts, lightly drying coriander effect but subtle; the citrus gets all the credit here and blends in nicely with the wheat. Somewhat yeasty finish, drying a bit due to the citric acidity and very lightly, subtly bitter from floral, earthy hops providing balance and structure. This is a very good example of the style, ’pimped’ with a refreshing citric acidity, extremely quenching; I am not witbier’s biggest fan, but I find this better than many Belgian examples, which usually do little more than trying to imitate the Hoegaarden standard. This one, like some Wallonian witbiers, is a bit different and in that sense quite interesting.
