caesar (7455) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Bottled from Bier Genot, BB End 2017, large sample, poured into a tulip glass after slight gushing (what else is new with t Gaverhopke?). Cloudy golden to orange color with some debris floating around, small frothy head with just a bit of lacing. Aroma of way too many spices, slight peppery, grainy malts, some high fusels, bit strawberry, slight orange, bit straw. High fusels make some bubblegummy fruity artificial candy. Bit sweet, slight bitter, dry, quite alcoholic. Spices accentuate the dry and alcoholic notes. A bit messy and a bit too alcoholic. Celest (137) - - MAY 28, 2014

Yellow colour. At bierfestival Groningen 14. Small white head. Spices all around, some alcohol. Nice wit but a lot of alcohol, and that shows up. A bit sweetness aloso. ShivanDragon (4741) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
#bfgm14, amber met minimale witte kraag
redelijk zoet, proeft redelijk alcoholisch, iets prikkelende co2, goede smaken van oa koriander, sinaasappelschil, graan, en Belgische gist. afdronk bevat echter een zeer licht zuurtje. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2014
Bottle, shared with Mathieu87.
APPEARANCE: clear darker blond beer, small unstable white head.
NOSE: sweet, caramel, herbs, wheat.
TASTE: fruity, herbs, sweet, wheat. ST247 (494) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours orange with a small off-white foam that quickly fades. Aroma is fruity and there’s a sent I recognise but can’t name, some herb I guess. Taste is more alcoholic than I would expect from a white (only my 2nd white which both seem to be a-typical), but still it’s fresh and fruity. Not bad but not something I would drink on a hot day I guess. bièregourmet (50) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2014
33 cl bottle from De Hopduvel
Label says "witbier", difficult to read the rest. the beer is pale orange with a light white foam but the aroma reminds to a witbier because of the citrusy-orang peel notes. Some spices, some fruitiness and belgian yeast.
Palate is medium light, there is an alchoolic hint with orange peel, spices, cereals, yellow fruits, yeast and peppery, refreshing. Dry finish.
Very nice strong ale, maybe not a true witbier, but well, the style imperial witbier doesn’t exist so it’s understandable this strange beer.
