On-tap at Frenzi, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of wheat and citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has nice flavors of wheat intermixed with lemon citrus and orange peels.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, thirst quenching, and refreshing. I liked how it was packed with lots of citrusy aromas and flavors.

Pale milky yellow color. Poured two fingers of bright white head with medium retention but leaving laces.
Citrusy aroma, with notes of yeast, vanilla and banana.
Flavor of pineapple, lemon, orange peel, coriander and wheat. Very light on the banana. Aftertaste is dry, a bit acid and mild bitter.
Light body with good carbonation.
Mouthfeel was great to me, not really sweet, condimented at the right level, very citric and refreshing. This should be sold in liters bottle, not thirds of a liter. Though a light beer it has its own character. If I drank too many wheat beers, I feel like not drinking it for a while. This shouldn’t be the case for Vedett.

Bottle of 330 ml, at home. Poured into a weizen glass. ABV is 4,7%. Medium head for the style, about one and a half fingers, white in colour and soapy in texture. Left some light lacing as it went down, in a short period of time.Only a slighty hazybess on the body, looks pretty clear. Average activity in the glass. Banana, clove and citrus aromas on the nose. Sweet taste with a very faint sourness on the finish. Quite boring, also some citrus fruits on the taste, but that’s pretty mush it. Overall, below than your average wit beer, it lacks lots on the taste.

Cloudy platinum with rocky clinging shaving cream foam that clings. Lemon furniture polish (but in a good way!) on the nose with bits of flowers and cantaloupe.
Melon, a wax hit and lemon balm to end.
Nectar finish and tingly linger. Soft, slight cling, light.

Great looker, but pretty basic in the glass. Saved by the creamy body, even if it's a bit thin. Doesn't aspire to be anything more than a good summer drinker, and hits that mark dead on.

A: Not much for a head, translucent slightly dark yellow. can't see any rising carbonation.
S: Traditional witbier smell, but perhaps on the strong side, richer and going deeper. Quite floral, like a magnolia. A very true floral smell, unlike any other beer I've had. Certainly a floral yeast.
T: Promising smell but the flavor doesn't deliver. Hollow like many witbiers. Quite lemony, but nearly zero sweetness, kinda like a failed lemonade. Tart, sour and a bit bitter. But almost not bad. Still drinkable. Wheaty.
M: Sourness, hair astringent. Dry. Light to medium body.
O: I hate to say this, but it would probably be better if sugar was added. Mediocre

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.

Bottle into a half-pint non-tapered pint glass in the Oslo pub, in Salthill, Galway, Ireland (low altitude). Reviewed from notes.

A: Cloudy white lemon-yellow colour. Three finger head of fair thickness but no cream.

Sm: Citrus: lemon and grapefruit mainly. Wheat.

T: Cream open to lemon estery hop body with a lovely lemon finish. The wheat is present but scaled back to highlight the esters. Well built and balanced. Quite refreshing.

Mf: Delicately light on the palate. Delightfully coarse to the point of being tingly, but a bit too wet. The yeast chunks are a necessary evil - easy on the pour, lads.

Dr: It's a good beer at a high price, particularly here in Ireland. I assume it's very affordable in Belgium, so all of ye beer advocates would do well to give it a go.

A- had this on tap at popeye's in Tokyo. A very pretty golden blond. A bit cloudy. Nice pour.

S- very light smell. A little spice. Not much else other than clean.

T - more spice than the nose. Some bitter citrus notes.

M - flavorful without being too overwhelming. Par for the style.

O- would definately drink again in Tokyo since it's a bit more drinkable than hitachino white. will come back for one in the summer.

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass by freshness date.

A:
The pour yields hazy pale yellow color with thick white foamy head along with sediment flecks floating around its body. The head retention is good and leaves fine lacing patches sticking to the glass, high carbonation.

S:
The smell contains clove spiciness, orange, lemon zest and banana.

T:
Rather clean taste, clove spice carries all the way long together with orange and lemon zest, grain and wheat drying the thing up. Hop bitterness is there but mild.

M:
The body is light to medium with right amount of crisp from high carbonation, dry finish.

O:
It is refreshing and easy drinkable properly a good session beer.

Pours straw with a small lasting head.
Nose shows loads of coriander and dried orange peel alongside the usual doughy wheat. Very refeshing!
Similar flavours, a bit too much coriander in there though, gives too much of a vegetal character.
Carbonation is too high.

A good head. The nose, slightly bitter, slightly reminiscent of the smell of lager, one feels also the wheat, and fairly strong. The entry on the palate is a little spicy but the beer quickly becomes acidic. Unfortunately, we pin too fast a flagrant lack of taste.
