Draft Pint at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London in July 2009 - Cloudy murky caramelly brown colour. Fruity; orange, tropical fruit (melon?). Spicy & Yeasty; coriander. Malty (caramel & toffee). Smooth. Sweet. Very refreshing. Dry slightly bitter finish. Lovely wheat beer! (2009-07)

Bottle shared with ebone1988 for the Koleminer20 turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 330 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy golden straw color with a thick white head that falls down to a thick ring with only a couple spots of lace. The aroma is full of lemon zest and spice. I dont necessarily care for the spiciness of it, but its not terrible. The flavor is where it falls apart. Its sharp and spicy with a lightly metallic malt thing happening. Its got a breadiness about it before falling off to the spice. The mouth feel is light and watery with a sharper carbonation and a lingering cinnamon and maltiness that just is terrible. Im not a fan of this one at all.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. Aroma is citrus, wheat, slight coriander, metallic, maybe a touch of earthy hop. Appearance is golden, white head, hazy. Taste is coriander, wheat, metallic, orange zest, eh. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, weird metallic spice aftertaste. Overall, I had high hopes for this one and it disappoints.

apickles (554) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle in Craft Tooting. Pours golden light brown lousy with not much of a head. Nose is very lemony with some wheat. Taste is really creamy in the mouth with tons of wheat on the finish. Really good.

Small bottle. Cloudy pale beer, large white head. Aroma of yeast, banana, coriander. Taste is light sweet, light sour, of lemon and citrus, some coriander and banana. Light to medium body, average to lively carbonation. Tasty, refreshing witbier.

Aromas of citrus, wheat and banana. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Taste of citrus and wheat with a smooth finish. Very drinkable.

Jabic (500) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Ar: Peach and a hint of bubblegum; a bit of orange, mango, and cotton candy. Ap: Straw gold and cloudy; medium-small white head with moderate-low retention; leaves a think cap of foam with a solid ring. T: Bubblegum and orange peel up front; doughy malt, very lightly toasted; cotton candy, mango, and peach, with hints of white pepper and a herbal hop flavor; very low bitterness; some warming alcohol, a bit too noticeable. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Well-made example of a Belgian wit; complex mix of fruit and spice flavors, with a clean and subtle malt backbone; mouthfeel and appearance are spot on; the one area for improvement would be to tamp down the alcohol flavor, which is a bit too prominent on such a low-abv beer.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Virkelig en god witbier. Masser af friskhed. Tilpas med bitterhed. Lidt kedeligt udseende.
