3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
THOUGHTS: A true classic. The inspiration for countless beers. A wonderful thirst quencher. Lots of flavor in a little beer. Nice session beer from long before the term was popular.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a murky, light, milky yellow with an average, white head that kept a nice sheet and left fair lacing. The aroma contained moderate wheat; plenty of coriander; lemon and oranges. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet, slightly sour, and heavily acidic. There was wheat, oranges, and coriander. The light to medium body was creamy with rather fizzy carbonation and dry and lightly astringent finish.
Very light. Almost like drinking a cloud. The Belgian style really comes through, as each drink is slightly different. Overall would recommend.

Zbożowość, kolendra, cytrusy. Niedużo ciała. Średnio słodkie, lekkie, wysoko wysycone, trochę pustawe na finiszu. Tasche39 (422) - SPAIN - NOV 1, 2017
Cerveza belga de trigo con sabores muy compensados. Tiene un toque dulce y afrutado.

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. dzurek (427) - Szczecin, POLAND - 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 (256) - 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.

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.
