gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, - MAR 2, 2012
Very hazy yellow orange pour with quite a bit of head that faded to a slight layer quickly. Hoppy sweet citrus nose. Thick, refreshing. Fruity and citrusy without being overpowering. Just a hint of spice, coriander in the finish. The finish is very clean despite the fairly strong flavour. This is very well balanced. Low carbonation. Sitting very well. I think this may be the best Wit Ive ever had.

17/X/16 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home, BB: 5/VI/18 (2016-1225)

Note: Im pretty sure my rating must either have been lost before I entered it, or was deleted by accident, as I have had this beer numerous times before. Anyway, a revisit of a good ol classic.
Pretty hazy pale yellowish beer, big creamy white head, very stable, bit adhesive, some lacing in the glass. Aroma: yeasty, dry, citrus, peppery, coriander, bit sweet, hint of banana. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: banana, bit yeasty, grains, soft acidity, some citrus, bit grassy, apples. Aftertaste: pretty bitter and hoppy touch, banana peel, quite dry, coriander, little peppery, very good witbier!

Paladares (199) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2016
Botella. Color pomelo turbio. Con posos. Aroma ligero a ctricos. No muy destacado. En boca, refrescante, cremosa y con buen punto de gas. El toque ctrico tiene presencia. En todo caso se nota que no es el estilo de las st bernardus. Mucho ms floja que otros estilos de la fbrica.

Draught half pint at La Tape, Madrid, with my cousin Felipe. Pours hazy sand yellowish with white head, nice lacing. Aroma is bread, oatmeal, honey, mint, sesame. Taste is fresh, full-bodied, not bitter at all. Nice aftertaste of spearmint-eucaliptus. One of the finest white beers so far.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - OCT 29, 2016
5.5%ABV. wit. Poured out gold. 4SRM. Nose has that Belgian Ale odor: stone dust, old hard wood. Layered over it is wheat flour. Mouthfeel is beery. Palate is sweet bready pale malt with bread dough, white bread, flour. No hops. Nice and pleasant very slight hints of a mineral finish.
