Draught @ Kaisla. Cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Slightly citric scent. Flavour comprises notes of citric fruits and some coriander. A bit watery consistence.Quite typical witbier to quench one’s thirst with on a sunny summer day. Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2010
"Insipid" is probably the best word for this. Really dull, plain wit, with some light fruit notes (lemon) and a slight suggestion of yeast, but no depth of character or anything to put any spring in my step.

750ml bottle - $8.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, light yellow body with a large, airy, white head that’s fairly persistent.
Smell: Gentle, delicate aroma-- oh, who am I kidding, it’s slim pickings, with only mild, minute notes of white wheat, citrus peel, and coriander.
Taste: Soft, lightly sweet mingling of barley and wheat with a slight dough quality to it. Very, very light hint of orange peel. Thin dusting of ground coriander provides a very, very light hint of spice. Very, very light hint of hops. Carryover of spice on the dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation.
Drinkability: Yes, it does well at being a quaffable and refreshing wit, but there is a dearth of character, leaving this one a tad bland and not particularly the best example of a witbier. Rune (12795) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2010
330ml bottle shared with Finn. Minimal, but stable white head. Unclear, light yellow body with lots of particles floating around. Mild aroma of fruits and wheat. Rather stale taste of ripe banana and citric fruits added by a spicy touch. Leaves behind an impression of vapidity (Tromsø, 19.05.2010). yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2010
Bottle. An unclear, yellowish orange beer with a small, white head leaving lacings. Mashed apples and a spiced touch. Quite dry in the mouth, medium bodied, with flavors of citrus and pale malty sweetness. A rather simple beer, goes down easily, but gives you almost nothing, 100522

Bottle at Mum and Dad’s. Pale and filmy with a moderate haze and slim white foam. Lemon sherbet, Asti and woodsy spice aroma; powdery coriander, lemon curd and perfume at the front, grain at the back. Lean and spritzy, slight tang, pepper: Decent wit. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Very pale & luminous straw color, with a lot of haze and plenty of head. Nose has abundant yeasty/bready aromas with light tropical fruity notes. On the palate the witbier sweet/sour element is there with soft wheat malt sweetness, and again some of the light fruits. Light bodied and easy drinking. thorongil2 (3076) - , Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010

Pale, muddy yellow with a big, creamy, white head. Nice lacings. Aroma is sweet, wheat, light oranges. Fair sweetness. Highish carbonation, light watery. Flavour has wheat, light sweetness, some graininess. Okay, but quite boring.
