Bottle. Very cloudy orangey gold in colour. Fruity spicy hoppy wheat beer. Fruity (grapefruit-citrus). Spicy (coriander & cloves). Yeasty (lots of sediment). Hoppy. Quite a tart bitter citrus hoppy edge. A rare thing - a hoppy wheat beer. A cross between a Saison and a Witbier. Unusual. Nice! (2008)

A somewhat different wheat beer, as there are several in Wallonia. Yellowish white, regular, sticky but not very stable head, colour of ’old gold’, clear instead of the expected mistiness which typifies a standard witbier. Light fruity aroma, grapefruit, green apple, pine resin, grains, honey, grassy and somewhat peppery hops. Grainy taste with a brief, honeyish sweetness in the onset, drying up from the middle onwards, slick and resinous with a hop bitter finish, especially for this style; no classic coriander taste.

Watery yellow appearance with a big-bubble head, not an attractive beer.
Aroma of banana and bubblegum, maybe some black pepper in the background.
Banana flavors, probably ketones, and some malt. Very light bodied. Unimpressive.

8/VI/14 - 33cl swing top bottle from De Zytholoog/Bierloods (Adegem) @ home - BB: V/2011 (2014-609) JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Clear orange beer, small big bubbled head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: oxidized, bit soapy, floral, sweet, oranges and tangerines. MF: no carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very spicy start, cinnamon, cloves, bitter, little sourish, very oxidized. Guess a swing top bottle doesn’t really help for ageing.
Bottle. Slghtly hazy amber pour, with a thin almost non-existent head. Caramel, wheat, a bit of tartness, yeast, and stale bread. Not good.

Belgian witbier that’s a little more yeasty than usual. Other than that, it’s wheaty and fruity of course. portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2013
2008 bottle 11.2 oz swing top. Pours hazy amber with a soft faint white soapy head that dissipates to a thin collar and a couple spots in the middle. Aroma is sweet caramel pepper and burnt sugars. Taste is flat and sweet caramel with some faded pepper and just plain old. Palate is thin flat and dry. Bad choice on taking a chance on this one, but it did not break the bank.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this beer. Drank in November 2011. Clear yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has a ton of fruit notes with a lot of lemons and peaches, as well as some wheat. The flavor is similar with some wheat and earth notes complimented by some peaches, grass and light pepper. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Flaska med bäst före datum november 2011. Orange, dimmig öl med vitt skum. Torkad frukt, bananestrar och lätt kryddighet i doften. Bananestrar och en hel del russin, vilket jag antar kommer av lagringen. Denna flaska verkar ha klarat lagringen bra. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2013
undated 11.2 oz bottle served in a snifter. Just plain ugly looking: a murky orange amber with almost no head; minimal lacing left on the glass. Some sediment included in the pour but most left on the bottom of the bottle.
Aroma: fruity, including plums, currants and apples. Biscuit base.
T: no detectable hops although this is only mildly sweet. Fruity, modest complexity, with a light wheat note. Little banana-yeasty flavor for style.
O: low pressure upon opening and low carbonation revealed in the pour suggest a bottle past its prime. Still tasty and enjoyable but likely better fresher.
