apickles (559) - 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.

Jabic (537) - 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.

Milter (875) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Virkelig en god witbier. Masser af friskhed. Tilpas med bitterhed. Lidt kedeligt udseende.

Livendadream (230) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Btl pours a cloudy light milky straw color. Big white head fades fast leaving no lace on glass. Aromas of ripe banana,orange,spice and wheat grains. Tastes of citrus,bread, and white pepper. Light body, soft yet watery mouthfeel, under carbonated, and a tart finish. I was really hoping this beer would be fantastic. Unfortunately it is just average. Hoegaarden and Celis white are much better. This beer was close to expiring. Maybe it was better when fresh.
