brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 29, 2010
A: The pour is a very clear pale golden color with a fluffy white head.
S: The nose is full of the usual spicy characteristics of clove and coriander along with sweet wheat, citrus, and some fruity esters.
T: The flavor is quite fruity with notes of banana, pear, and apple. The wheat, malt, and sugar provide plenty of sweetness which works well with the fruitiness.
M: The body is medium with a creamy carbonation and a somewhat dry finish.
D: A much nicer beer than I was expecting. I particularly enjoyed the fruitiness of it and it was quite different from any other witbier that I’ve had. cgarvieuk (25724) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2010
bottle at home ... golden ... yellow thin white head ... sweet yeasty hop ... over fizzy ... musty lemon yeast ... little bitter ... Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - APR 7, 2010
I had this after a few other good Belgian beer. Despite of that (or maybe because of that) I really liked this. A manly and quite heavy witbeer with a typical Belgian power combined with some lightness of the wheat. The yeast is characteristic and interesting.

Bottle (as plain old De Graal Triverius). Beaten gold with a greenish tinge under a thinning white head. Ripe tangy aroma reminiscent of Tripel Karmeliet; satsuma, oat-like creaminess and citrus spice suggesting pepper and cardamom. What a sniffer. Flavour follows on logically with silky spice, lemon puff biscuits, orange peel, coriander, pineapple hints. Slick, clean and spicy. One I’d actively seek out again. akbar (4) - ITALY - DEC 27, 2009 does not count
At the nose it smells of yeast with some notes of bread may be wheat flour mixed with some citrus/lemon peel.
At the eye it doesn’t seem a blanche ’cause it’s too clear, may be a blond one...
Taste it’s a little bit too bitter for the style, and bitternes it’s quite persistent, a little salty could be noticed too.
Light body, as the style wants, well carbonated.
Over all a not so bad beer, anyway in the category has many other so much better...

flavor is sweet, bitter, yeasty, wheaty. to me it’s like if i had blended a wit with a blonde. a little boozy. thedm (6309) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy softly carbonated yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was floral and dough. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The bubbly flavor contained notes of mild hops dough orange and citrus. A decent one that I would consider buying again. leaparsons (10700) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2009
Bottle. Hazy gold with a small head. Aromas are sugar and citrus with spices and some herbal notes. Flavours are very sweet with some creamy wheat notes coming through. Some caramel with a peppery, spicy finish. Dry and sweet. More of an Abbey beer than a Wit in my view. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle from utobeer had at home. Alround rating: Big candy sugar character, very herbal with some lemon and basil coming in, perhaps some fennel character too. Interesting little beast.
