Bottle @ Brugs Beertje, Brugge. Hazy yellow to light orange color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell and taste wheat, lightly herbs or spices, a little sweet. Average body and carbonation. Hmm pretty average and not really what I think a Belgian White should be. kermis (13269) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016

33cl bottle from 2 Be.
thick white head. Cloudy golden pour. Refreshing and easy drinking sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle sample @ 5de Brugs Bier festival.
Dorée brumeuse, col blanc.
Arôme reste assez doux avec une pointe de crudité et de malt biscuité.
En bouche, Un houblon sec allant vers Hallertau et une épice anisé dont je n’avais pas prévu être de la camomille. Malté blé donne ce côté biscuité que je trouve agréable et est suivi par ce profile de malt pils dans un style plus allemand.

Good snowwhite head over yellowish beer with a green sheen. Coriander, fake citrus overpowering the nose. Soapy flavour, perfumed in an artificial-liek way, citrussy, but no longer coriander - no doubt the chamomille. Light, bit wheatslickness. Worse than average perfume, sorry, witbier. 77ships (9776) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012
bottle sampled @ Bruges Beer Festival 2012: hazy citrus yellow, touch orange with a small white head, smells like doughy yeast, sweet wheat & slightly fake citrus hops, taste is sweet upfront, tastes like cookies & raw cookie dough, plenty of yeast poured into this one, taste more yeasty than wheat to me, tad watery, some wheat, slightly bitter in the finish with some tad fake citrus hops – camomile? didn’t pick it up but might be just me, didn’t get coriander either, maybe touch unspecific herbs in smell – obviously this need more cookies tderoeck (9656) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2012

Cloudy beige muddy beer, nice off-white creamy head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty malty, grains, bit metallic, some citrus. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, some honey, flowers, spices (aniseed). Aftertaste: citrus, bitter touch, more spices. Not as original as hoped for.
Pours very wattery yellow no foam
Smells very bad floral
To much carbo
To old hop
Very meh beer
Drank at de kelk BlackHaddock (7321) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Brugge Beer Festival 2014: a beer with ’chamomile’ (a daisy tea?) and Pilsner Malts with the brew kettle. No wonder I didn’t really take to it!
Golden orange with a slight haze, on top a white crown of bubbles.
The nose is of mild wheat/grains and yeast esters, maybe a citrus hint if you sniff long and hard enough.
Taste followed the smell to the letter, wheat, other grains and yeasty: a typical Belgian Witbier but without the spiciness or fruitiness you’d expect. I’m not huge fan of the style anyway, so this wasn’t my cup of tea.
My only mistake of the day!
