Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big frothy white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus and light spices. Taste is orange, coriander and wheat. Excellent crisp and light refreshing wit just a little too light for the style.

watery, lemon-ish, session able, citrus-y, light. nothing special, and for sure not even close to a good wit beer. although before you know you will finish it.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 First had in the bottle a few times in June 2014, then found it on draft at Fado in 2015 and 2016. Always stood out for me as different from the average witt/white beer. Cloudy pale gold pour with a fizzy white meringue foam top. Huge milky aroma. Very lightly toasted wheat. Light lemony clementine citrus. Vanilla. Oyster crackers. Buttermilk biscuits. Medium body. The Blanc is a distinct improvement over the other Kronenbourg 1664. The newer American draft version is much juicier than the older bottles and not as solid. Rating it higher due to the good impression given me from those first bottles.

Limonada color with bubbly white head. Not so good taste. Overall a poor white beer

jgb9348 (6586) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Clear golden coloured body with a straw white head and a slightly cloudy golden glow. Aroma of grass, light hops, yeast, wheat and a nice curacao and orange scent - not bad at all. Medium-bodied; Strong wheat and yeast flavours with some light orange flavours, straw, hay, grass, hops and a mild sweet note. Aftertaste shows some nice complexity with the malt and wheat coming through the most, but some subdued barnyardie flavours coupled with a nice yeast and hay flavour make this actually nice! Perhaps i’ve been in Asia for too long or the hot weather of Hong Kong has got to me, but this beer is actually refreshing and complex - I"m happy to be drinking it! I sampled this 50 cL can purchased a few minutes ago at 7-11 in Wan Chai on 21-June-2014 for HK$12,90 sampled here in my hotel room in Wan Chai on the Island of Hong Kong.

330 ml bottle from Systembolaget, BB 04/15 A sweet smell of peaches, citrusy and sweet taste with distict wheat maltiness. Good and fizzy carbonated. Has a ale yellow color. Pours off with a frothy white head which dissapears quite quick. Overall: A nice easy drinking wit, but a bit too sweet and artifical taste for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Cellarbrations West End. Wow I was totally surprised by this as I was expecting watery fizz and I got a very flavoursome beer instead.

Bottle bought for the World Cup 2014. Go France!!! Hazy light yellow/white colour. The aroma is extremely zesty/lemon to me. Crazy how lemon lime it is. On the palate it is yeasty, more lemon zest and is easy drinking overall. Not terribly offensive. Allez les Bleus!!!

Tap. Pours hazy yellow with thin, creamy white head. Aroma is fruity pebbles, cereal malts, light citrus, and faint floral notes. Flavor is dry malty base, light fruit sweetness, and light grassy and herb notes; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.
