Draft as "Brugs Witbier". Pale hazy golden color with a medium creamy white head. Aroma and taste of yeast, hops, citrus and coriander. Quite nice.

33 cL bottle, as Brugs witbier. Pours pale yellow, hazy and with a white head. Mild wheaty aroma, very mild coriander note. Flavour is banana wheaty and mellow from the Belgian yeast. Ends smooth towards slight cloying (too much wheat).

I tried this on draft. It has a yellow unclear color with a light head - as is typical for belgian witbeers. The aroma is fruity and slightly sour also like most witbeers. The flavor is a flat wheat flavor with notes of fruit.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2005
Bottled (Brugs Witbier). Pale hazy yellow colour, small white head. Wheat in aroma, feels quite empty. Wheaty, kind of fresh fruity flavour, very nice surprise after the slight disappontment with aroma.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) In my original version brewed by "De Gouden Boom" in Bruges. Pale, hazy yellow with a small white ale. Very typical witbier look. Has all the nice spicy and citrusy flavours but is more bitter and pilsner-like than most wits. Less wheat malt perhaps. A bit flat but nice indeed. 181096 and 280499

Very pale yellow, really hazy. Spicy aroma with a slight of citrus. Very light body, dryish with hints of honey. A well balanced and refreshing witbier.

23rd February 2008. Slightly watery and with a distinct buttery start. This carries over on to the finish.

Leighton (20811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle in Brussels. Pours hazy yellow with a sturdy, pure white, foam head. Mellow wheat aroma with light dough, spices and yeast. Nice flavour if a bit watery. Doughy, wheaty character with subtle yeast, light cereal and low spices. Light in body with average carbonation. Lightly dry on the finish with some drying straw, wheat, mellow yeasty dough. A very basic witbier. Pleasant to drink.
