erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2016
Hazy and quickly headless. Light dive, fruity yeast yet not so much esters. Bread dough malts. Quite refined. Taste is more flat, simple. Expected more, good start but ultimately not special enough. (Bottle at M Cafe Leuven)

VDuquerroux (1688) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAY 26, 2016

Light to medium sweet, light acid, bitter note, light dry refreshing. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, sweet acid short finish. Overall, average witbier ; nothing special ; lightly refreshing.

Alengrin (5376) - BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2016
Chamomille-flavoured witbier from Brugs Bierinstituut, at Brugs Beertje. Loose, thin, off-white (not as dense and moussy as I normally expect from the style), orange peach blonde colour, lightly hazy with vivid fizz. Aroma ruined by DMTS (burnt rubber), covering more pleasant hints of caramel, redcurrant, coriander, chamomille, dried tomato; some iron and DMS (cooked cabbage) as well. Fruity taste, pineapple, apricot, gooseberry, soft carbo, smooth caramelly maltiness, grainy and soapy edges, minerally touch, coriander with soft herbal hop bitterishness at the back; soapy wheat continues. Flavour as such was okay but the nose was a bit off-putting, unfortunately.

kermis (13482) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle at Comptoir Des Arts, Brugge. Very hazy orange blonde with a white head. Aroma of herbs, weeds, light yeast and light malt. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

2.7

corkyrory66 (2000) - BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
Bière calibrée sur une blanche puisqu’elle contient 30 % de malt de froment, mais aussi 2 malts d’orge de type pils, de la camomille et du miel. Elle titre à 5 % abv. Couleur blond doré moyen, avec une clarté nette (bizarre pour une blanche!!). Bulles assez grosses, partout dans le verre, assez vives. Mousse blanche bien crémeuse, qui fait un nappage à 2 mm. Arômes d’herbe à chat, camomille, houblon sec, malt pâle. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur des herbes aromatiques, avec un fond malté clair. Arrière-bouche assez bizarre, plutôt une spéciale qu’une blanche. 2ème où la texture s’affine, mais où le goût reste sur la spice/vegetable plutôt que la blanche. 3ème bouche très banale, plate, faible. Arrière-bouche fade et sans relief. La longueur montre une forte erreur d’assemblage, des saveurs fausses (non harmonisées). Rien n’est agréable, on touche même la pils de bas niveau !!! La levure est banale, quelconque. L’alcool est faible, conforme au genre, mais sans effet sur l’ensemble. La finale est nullissime !!! CONCLUSION : une bière qui est en fait entre une spéciale banale et une pils basique... Quelle tristesse pour Bruges que cet institut qui n’en est pas un !!! Cette splendide ville ne méritait pas pareille humiliation !! Même le chant du cygne ne peut les sauver ...
