minutemat (4804) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml bottle drunk on a train. Straight after popping you can smell the familiar orange / coriander Huyghe aroma. Not as strong as Delirium at 4.5% but still packed with a fair amount of taste. The orange peel here is kind of tangy and really lingers on the tongue but still, compared to the beer M&S used to put out this is impressive.

GoufCustom (1774) - HONG KONG - MAR 14, 2016

330ml bottle bought at M&S in Langham Place, Mong Kok.

Cloudy, hazy light straw golden colour with misty yeast particles; One and a quarter finger head with white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with active small carbonation; Fragrant aroma of light malt, with strong wheat, tartness, banana, strong coriander, orange peels, light floral, light sugar, spices, yeast, light lemon and thin grass; Close to light sweet and strong tart taste of light malt, with strong wheat, light banana, fair orange peels, coriander, molasses notes, strong spices, earth, strong yeast, moderate lemon, very light bitter hops and thin grass; Mid to light body. Dry, crisp and slick palate. Mouth Feel is fair light malty base with strong wheatyness and tartness which balanced the sweetness well. Very slick. Good spice, coriander and light orange peels abound. Yeasty , earthy but not so estery. Light lemon to round. Good!... Hoppiness is light floral, spices, light lemon and thin grass in nose, and stronger with earth in taste; Bitterness is low for an abrupt, very low astringent wheaty spicy finish; Quite dry after taste. Spicy and low bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is an on-standard Belgian White with strong wheaty tartness, good banana aroma, a big dose of coriander and spice to taste. Very solid and almost outstanding, a very easy and enjoyable Wit indeed. Recommended!

DruncanVeasey (8063) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle from Fosse. Typical pale haze with a tight collar. Creamy but alive with a light prickle of carbonation. Lemon sherbet and meringue aroma with a hint of metal; lemon barley dominates in the mouth, with a pleasing dose of pepper over the top. Standard issue, tasty wit.
