(draft) Small white head with opaque straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, banana, orange, wheat. Taste is medium sweet, wheat, orange peel, some lemon, a mellowing sweetness (motelpogo suggest camomille). Watery light palate. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Fruit notes in the aroma include orange, peach and banana. Cloudy yellow body with spare, white head and no lace. Medium bodied with a fizzy carbonation mouthfeel. Somewhat dry but with a long finish. Not much meat to this brew. Too wheaty and without character. Disappointing. HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Hazy yellow beer with big head. Aroma is orange/peach with slight spices. Taste, however, has a soapy flavor that is out of place that is hard to getr beyond. Some orange hints with very low bitterness. calivania (62) - USA - MAY 10, 2004
I just picked up a six pack of cans of ’Wittekerke’ and I think I have just found the greatest summer barbeque beer I have every had. Quenching, flavorful, deep but not to complicated, this beer -- preferably in ice cold cans pulled out of an ice chest -- doe more work than any beer rightfully should. This is the summer beer for people who like winter beers. The new catch phrase: pass me a Kerky! Pailhead (6541) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2004
Bottle: (under the alias Wittekerke) Aroma is very peppery and citrus. I might even say the pepper smell may be a bit stronger than the citrus. Pours a very pale yellow. A previous rater hit the nail on the head when he said it reminded him of pineapple juice. Nice white head with medium retention. Flavor is dominated by citrus with slight pepper taste (but not nearly as much as aroma would indicate). Moderately sweet with very slight bitterness. Soft mouthfeel. Slightly sweet slightly bitter short lasting aftertaste. As a drink the pepper taste becomes slightly stronger. A very good witbier.

Seems wierd to be pouring this type of beer from a can. Very light head which leaves a thin film on the side of the glass. Pale cloudy yellow. Mixed scent of yeast and winter mellon. Flavour is definately mixed fruit, oranges, tangerines and mellon. Some mild spiciness mixed in. Very refreshing, smooth and fluffy on the tongue. Exactly what I was craving yesterday. beerbrewer737 (2) - Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2004 does not count
Love this example of a Wit. Great summertime brew. This is one beer that I will have to make myself. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 18, 2004
Moderate banana and clove aroma. Pale straw body is hazy and has a short, frothy, white head. Lightly sweet flavor becomes a lightly bitter, lightly acidic finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: your run of the mill canned witbier? Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2004
Big,white head, pale yellow,hazy color. Deep wheat aroma. Super fresh! I'm wishing I had more food/spice experience to conjure more descriptors. The regular gang are in attendance:coriander, curacao,anything else? Very bright, floral, honeyish, lemony (but don't put a lemon in it, please! Let beer be beer!( Soft texture, wonderful drinkability, some graininess, but still creamy, luxurious. I could drink this by the pitcher on a hot summer day! Tastes great anytime, though.

I guess this is the correct beer. And that was a tiny bottle. Honey golden pour. Soapy small head. Grassy aroma. Citric honey flavours standout. Soap and some coriander. Sweet and mild. A good example but a little sleepy in the finish. Palate is average. Good overall.
