330ml bottle. Pours cloudy yelly with frothy head. Aroma of cut grass and citrus. Flavours of straw and gentle spice with a little malt. The wheat really comes through. A mild finish with a lingering citric grassiness. Very easy drinking.

Bitek (795) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Zbożowość, kolendra, cytrusy. Niedużo ciała. Średnio słodkie, lekkie, wysoko wysycone, trochę pustawe na finiszu.

Cerveza belga de trigo con sabores muy compensados. Tiene un toque dulce y afrutado.

equisetum (125) - Kielce, POLAND - OCT 29, 2017
Barwa słomkowa, piwo opalizujące ze średnią dość trwałą pianą. W aromacie pomarańcze, kolendra, banan, delikatna nuta mleczna i cytrynowa. W smaku pierwsze co rzuca się na kubki smakowe, to cytrusowa kwaśność, później czujemy klasyczne pomarańcze i kolendrę. Jest odrobina słodyczy jak i goryczki. Całość jest trochę przegazowana, ale ten typ (Belgowie) tak ma. Piwo jest lekko wodniste. Generalnie, bardzo fajne i ożeźwiające piwo na lato, radzę za to nie spodziewać się cudów, bo rodzimy Kormoran witbier jest lepszy.

Olorin (58) - Graz, AUSTRIA - OCT 28, 2017
330 ml bottle. Cloudy pale yellow colour, big head with good durability, nearly no lacing, lively carbonation. Nose is fruity, ananas, banana. Flavour is medium sweet, low bitterness, orange, coriander. Rather watery with a short finish. Nice but not outstanding.

futre7 (255) - Taipei, TAIWAN - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle from Wellcome superstore Wuxing road, Taipei. I don't need to overly explain this one. Clean, bright and fruity. It is such an enjoyable and iconic beer. Fruity and fresh but not overly. The one slight negative could be it does have a slight sacharin-esque edge to it but it's a minor, niggly complaint. Great in the summer and in the winter. It is a classic.

Bill Becker (1769) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 27, 2017
From Sep 2007 Pours from 330ml bottle(best by 20/09/08) a slightly hazy straw colour with a fairly large head of foam that recedes quickly to just some spotting and some lacing. The smell is of wheat, banana, and clove. The taste is some nice wheat flavour, very light clove, and even lighter banana. Very lightly flavoured over all but what is there is good. Just needs to be a bit more assertive. The mouthfeel is light, the carbo is light, and it finishes on the watery side. Bottom line: It's been a while since I last had some of this and I don't recall it being *this* light on the flavours. In my book, it's just so so. There are lots of others in the style that please my palate more.

Mpuntmuts (265) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 My first encounter with a white one, many, many years ago. Steady hot day gusher. Cloudy yellow pour with a quick dissipating white layer. Citrus and sweet pineapple and that undeniable wet dog smell. Fresh citrus flavours and a hint of tropics. Thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Doesn't disappoint ever I guess. Not one the greats but very sessionable!!

3.3
Idiosynkrasie (7946) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2017
250ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Wheaty, slightly spicy and minimally fruity aroma, hints of banana, orange. Taste is minimally sweet wheaty, slightly fruity, hints of banana, orange, a bitter and minimally tart touch of orange zest, coriander overtones. Very well balanced, paradigmatic for sure, but not outstanding.
