For Pater Lieven Wit, wheat and oats are used during the brewing process, which give the beer its pale color and cloudy appearance. Pater Lieven Wit is unfiltered. Therefore, it remains cloudy and contains living yeast cells. It is flavored with coriander and orange peel, which provide pleasant fruity and thirst-quenching characters.

Birra dal colore giallo paglierino torbido. Schiuma bianca grossolana e poco persistente. Al naso sentori pesca biana, lievito e crosta di pane. Al palato leggera e beverina cpn note che riprendono già quello sentito all’olfatto. Birra discreta ma niente di eccezionale.

330 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a white head. The aroma is mild and fruity (oranges) and lightly yeasty with some spices (coriander). Medium body with a lively carbonation, a light bitterness and a very light sweetness. The taste is lightly malty, wheat, again oranges, some coriander and a noticeable hop presence. Balanced.

Mortlach (2335) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 15, 2017
330ml bottle @Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome). Giallo paglierino, torbida, opalescente, schiuma media bianca. Al naso sentori di fieno, arancia candita, spezie. In bocca è dolce con finale appena amaro, leggermente fruttata, modesta. Corpo leggero, carbonazione medio-leggera. Un po’ anonima.

EdKing (2576) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Bottle from Granken Geers. Slightly muted gold in the glass with a large white foam head, dissipating to small but staying. Nose is light, floral, lemons, doughy white baguette, clove, orange, dried coriander. Taste is crisp, light, lemon, slight orange rind, coriander, slight clove. A very light wit bier but decent to refresh the palate on a hot day. Less so for supping quietly at home.

330ml bottle bought at ICBeer in Kwun Tong.

Looks: Clear light blonde with a thin crust of yeastsediments; Explosive two and a half finger head with long lasting crumpety white foam; Excellent sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant fair malt, with strong wheaty tartness, banana, strong orange peels, strong coriander, floral, strong cinnamon, spices, strong Bel yeast, strong lemon and grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet light malt, with strong wheat, fair tartness, very strong orange peels, strong coriander, light floral, molasses, spices, light bread, strong Bel yeast, light lemon peels, fair to light bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Very smooth and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Light maltyness in an oat-filled smooth background. Slick and quite creamy. Strong wheaty presence but tartness is rather light. Lots of orange peels and coriander which shame other Witbiers easily. Sweetness is also fairly strong but still restrained. Quite spicy and yeasty with light lemon to round. Nice!

Hoppiness: Floral, cinnamon, strong lemon and grass in nose. Light floral, spices, light lemon peels and grass in taste; Bitterness is mid to light for an abrupt, light astringent lemony wheaty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Smooth, spicy and fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one got a gusher-like head, loads of oats for a very smooth body, bliitz of orange peels and corianders, and pretty sharp light lemon hoppiness. Refreshing and tasty, a standout from packs. Will buy again!

Bouteille achetée Au Grain D’Orge - De couleur jaune trouble avec une belle mousse blanche crémeuse qui tient bien - Au nez des arômes d’agrumes, d’épices (coriandre et levure), de blé, levure, pain, un nez standart pour une blanche belge mais très équilibré - En bouche pas de surprise on retrouve la même chose, épices, ecorce d’orange, blé et une bonne presence de levure - Corp léger/moyen, amertume légère, carbonation correcte, onctueuse, final blé et agrumes - Standart mais vraiment bien équilibrée et sans défaut bonne découverte

Bolian (183) - - AUG 3, 2016
Pours honey golden, white thick foam, very good retention. Nose is fruity, elderflower, apricots, orange. Taste is very carbonated and faintly tart / acid plus some faint bitterness. Apples, orange and melon faint bread. Aftertaste is too bitter a some faint off taste.

Hopverdju (1199) - BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2016
Troebelbond bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: koriander, citrus en wat sinaasappel. Smaak: fris, wat citrus en iets zoetig. Ik zal waarschijnlijk nooit een witbier fan worden, maar deze behoort bij de betere door de goede balans.
