5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Dark straw, dirty looking, large white foamy head.   Looks like an American example in that its not pale enough.   Wheaty nose, no real spices.   Very faint citrus aspect.   Very dull on the tongue.   Wheaty overall, but not spicy.   Well hidden 7.5% ABV.   Finish just as it started, wheaty and without much spicy excitement.   Not one of the better Witbiers to come out of Belgium.   Not bad, but very boring.

blutt59 (6598) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2012
bottle, cloudy orange golden pour with some lace and thin skim of foam, aroma is fruity yeast, flavors of nail polish, strawberries, pool water chemicals, decent finish but doesnt taste anything like a witbier

Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Cloudy orange, loose white head. Smells like melon, lightly spicy and some woody notes. taste is sweet, and, uh, detergent? Some weird artificial sweet flavors and soap. Also some spicy flavors. Odd...

nuplastikk (6511) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2011
750 graciously shared by Anndiesel. Unfiltered, deep orange color. Big, foamy, off white head. Wheaty orange aroma. It’s a decent beer, more of a one and a half than a double. Decent beer, some orange-lemon-lime citrus tones. Almost like a Belgian version of a Bruery beer, if that makes any sense. Sugary. An OK beer, but at 9.99 a 750ml, it’s way overpriced.

3.3
JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 2, 2017
Hazy dark golden to orange color with a modest head and decent lace. Classic scents with orange zest, pale malt and coriander. Flavors are sweet with a bit more alcohol. Sweeter, heavier wit.

superspak (6208) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/4/2014. Pours extremely hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of orange, pear, apple, lemon, orange rind, apple skin, coriander, light banana, floral, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, and earthy yeast esters. Nice and pleasant aromas; with good balance and complexity of malt, spices, and yeast esters. Taste of pear, apple, orange zest, lemon, light banana, wheat, coriander, bread, honey, floral, light clove, and earthy yeast esters. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, wheat, coriander, light clove, bread, honey, and earthy yeast esters on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; with a good malt/spice balance, but feels a bit toned down in flavor for 7.5%; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good high gravity witbier. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) very hazy orange pulp-like color with vigorous bubbles. Nose of Belgian yeast, white pepper. Taste is spicy, wheat, orange peel, dry finish, pretty nice witbier.

3.2
Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Thanks to mar for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a hazy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is has quite a bit of wheat in it, as well as some coriander and citrus notes. The flavor is more of the same. The wheat and coriander notes really stand out, although there is a little bit of lemon and orange as well. The yeast notes add some nice spice notes to the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.3
Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2017
Winter edition of Wittekerke, De Brabandere’s standard witbier, likely inspired by Hoegaarden Speciale, from a 75 cl bottle with cork bought at Dranken De Moor. Thick and frothy, cobweb-lacing, very dense and egg-white head, initially almost clear ’old gold’ robe, misty and more deeply orangey ochre with sediment. Aroma of peach, ripe banana, soap, stewed pear, some onsetting oxidation (rust), coriander, white bread dough, melting powder sugar, honey, popcorn, cooked carrot, vague hints of bubblegum and chicken broth. Sweet onset, banana ester mingled with accents of peach and pineapple, sourish undercurrent, medium carbo, slick and rather soapy mouthfeel, residual white sugary sweetness, soapy wheat and honeyish sweetness in the middle, touch bready, coriander towards the finish, minerally accents, some retronasal oxidation, lingering banana bread and honey sweetness, soapy ending with only the faintest hint of floral hop bitterness. A genuine ’tarwetripel’, soapy, sweet, coriandered and very accessible to the Belgian palate, nothing extraordinary going on here, but ’honest’ and enjoyable enough even on a summer evening.

3.3
BoBoChamp (5754) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2013
75cl, new exclusive brew Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex Belgian White, spicy/floral and slightly fruity/sweet, balanced, cloudy, good head, nice Winter brew
