Stubby bottle consumed in Antwerp, on to the beer:

Living up to the name, this beer is nearly colorless with a kiss of hay . The bone white head is sturdy and retains very well. The nose is soft and fruity, bringing lemon and orange first, and trailed by soft spices and coriander. Momentum keeps going...a soft taste with flavor is just what I was craving, and it's brought to the table in the form of a lemon-orange fruitiness, a kiss of spice, good balance, and the creaminess of oats. Somehow, the beer is light on its feet and refreshing with gentle crispness.

This is a very refreshing witbier which I wouldn't mind to see on the US market. Somewhat easy to find in Belgium too, which is convenient.

33cl green bottles, enjoyed at and then from a saved bottle from the BCTC fest in August. Comes with best before dating of "06 2009". Pours cloudy, white peach, with a fine bubble white head, rising to about two inches and showing much better then moderate retention. The look develops with a tiny bubble film and nice sticky lace, surrounding a merainge cap. Nice looking stuff. Fruity nose, I believe I can pick up so light pepper as well. Quite refreshing and enjoyable wit. Zesty, citrus, general fruityness, plenty of lemon/lime. Clean and crisp late, fine summer quaffer, bring on the hot weather lunches of salads, cheese and bread and this will be a fine partner

Originally sampled at Belgium comes to Cooperstown 2008 VIP dinner. I brought a few bottles home with me and am finally getting around to reviewing one tonight. To the best of my knowledge this product is not available in the United States.

A: Large foamy head, fades after a few minutes. Nice unfiltered golden color.

S: Lemon/citrus

T: Distinctly lemon but one of the better examples of a Witte I have tasted

M: Not as much carbonation as there should be. I do not remember this from my first tasting, could be due to age.

D: Very drinkable. A perfect summer witte.

Bought this in a Japanese import store. Dated 7/2009. Enjoyed out of a Weltenburger pilsner glass.

Appearance: A beautiful, uniformly-opaque golden straw colour. One of the better looking wheat beers I've ever seen. Head stuck around for a good long while

Smell: Phenolic/"Fruity". More lemony than other beers of its category. Lacking the banana smell that seems to characterize several wheat beers. Faint doughiness.

Taste: Detect a definite lemon presence here. The bread-like aroma I noticed is nowhere to be found. Mild citrus aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Quite thin and watery.

Drinkability: I enjoyed this beer a good deal and could enjoy several more in succession.

A foggy yellow beverage, a white thick head, no lacing.

The smell is fruity, lemon, orange and banana, spicy and a bit more "vigorous" than the on-tap version.

The taste is citric, lemon, rhubarb and elderberries, spicy, clove and cardamom.

High carbonation, refreshing and spritzy, soothing but dry.

This bottle was tested and compared with an on-tap version, I found the extra carbonation from the bottle actually invigorating and enhancing this beer.
