Oh the classic belgian white beer. Normal hazy oragne color, white soapy head, and of course the citrusy aroma and flavors. I am of course not a huge fan of the belgian white, or at least I have not yet found one that I like.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2005
Bottled. 750 ml. Cloudy, pale yellow colour. Huge frothy head. Lemony, coriander aroma, yeasty with something like lactic acid. Citric, spicy, slightly tart with, again, strong notes of coriander and lemon. A nice mouthfeel, goes down easily. But if this is, supposedly, the best this style has to offer, I dont know whats the point of it. The dominating aromas and flavours are added to the beer. Good hefeweizens have much more character than this and if you substract the artifcially added flavours from wit you are left with a yeasty, bland sub-par weizen.

Not a bad white beer. Hints of citrus ride out the mouthful. Very drinkable.

Tasted this one at fitzgeralds harp and bard. Poured yellow and cloudy, (yeast). White head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. This was pleasant. Not my favorite style, but good.

So this is the #1 rated White? I dont get it. Has hardly any aroma. Appearance makes up for it though. Crisp light & refreshing. Light spices & yeasty flavors. Palate seems to be thin. I prefer Allagsh White and Celis White when it was brewed in Austin over this one. Both have far more flavor.

A solid witbier. Although I get a little upset every time I order a draft, and the bartender places an orange in it. Nice cloudy golden color with some floaties. The head is a bright white and very creamy. Aroma is of wheat and citrus (even without the orange). Wheat is defintely present, and so is lemon and some spice, which rounds out the aftertaste. It is a light verison of a witbier, but still solid noetheless, perfect for a warm summer day.

On Tap: My favorite bar decided to switch Blue Moon with this: a very wise (and surprising) decision. Apperance is relatively pale, with a noticeable cloud. Thin body, with very little head. Taste is quite dry, with a mouthwatering and subdued orange and corriander flavor. As the description suggests, a sour aftertaste. Good, but in my mind doesnt quite live up to its reputation.

The original, had to try it finally after having a few beers that try to be Hoegaarden. Turns out ones like Allagash white do a pretty good job of emulating this beer. Pours the normal suspecting white style with a big foamy head. I taste the coriander notes, but its not overwhelming which is good. I also tasted that citrus tang that is to be expected. Everyones had this, its good, but not great. Glad Ive had it a little later in my beer tasting adventure since it would have struck me as a little more fascinating at my earlier beer drinking stages.

one of the best white beers Belgum has to offer. Strong coriander taste,smell is very crisp. This beer compliments almost any food. Color is very pale and cloudy,with a nice foam top. The coriander leaves somewhat of a nice after taste.
