Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a nice light pale yellowish hue with a thin white head that fades to leave a very light blanket.

S - Nice aromas of citrus (oranges), gently wheat and super light spice notes.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with very nice citrus orange notes, soft wheat. Cloves come out a bit in the taste.

M - Mouthfeel isn't too bad. A bit too much carbonation for my tastes.

O - Overall, a solid witbier out of Belgium! Very orange heavy.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a rather hazy medium yellow in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation and golden yellow + apricot highlights. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Overall the aroma for this beer is pretty light with some notes of wheat with even lighter notes of citrus/orange/tangerine and some light fruit (apple and pear). Very light hints of spices.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of wheat with light flavors of citrus/orange/tangerine, and spices - most notable is coriander but there are also light hints of clove and allspice. Very light amounts of sweetness or bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: This is enjoyable and I like the fact that the beer is not overly sweet or bitter. I really found this beer to be quite enjoyable and easy to drink. This one is pretty refreshing.

A: The beer is very hazy light pale yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that only died down a little and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus are present in the nose - orange and tangerine seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste is quite citrusy but this isn't as prominent as the smell because it is balanced off by the underlying wheat. No spices are evident.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The smell and taste of this beer are very citrusy compared to other witbiers but it is still very drinkable and has some refreshing properties.

Pours an attractive and relatively clear golden straw color, big puffy head, some decent retention. Scent brings classic fresh dried grain, bread and peppery spice but backs it with a nice dose of coriander, fresh flowers and decent amount of citrus juice. Citrus is surprisingly forward in the taste, taking only a backseat to the classic tastes of the style. Nice medium bodied, bubbly but smooth with some heft. A very nice take on the style.

Sold as “Blond Bitch Beer” in Sweden.

The colour is cool yellow (6 EBC), the liquid is clear. The three finger head is airy and white. It sinks slowly leaving no lacing.

The smell is quite mild. Tart wheat notes, some spices in the background. Fruity esters, phenolic notes of soap, allspice and cloves. Very low sweetness and almost no sweetness at all.

The taste is surprisingly sweet. Some sour wheat notes in the background, as well as some old spices. Orange peels, allspice and a touch of nutmeg. Light body. The aftertaste is not as sweet, but brings some alcohol, dry herbal-hoppy flavours. Banana peels and stale spices in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong. Lots of mid-sized smooth bubbles. The liquid is smooth.

Well, this is an OK witbier. A little too sweet in the beginning and a not enough fresh spices, though.

Pours an amazing looking wheat beer, and in my mind, the stereotypical perfect beer! A golden orange color with a nice hazy cloudiness to it. A good amount of carbonation creates a thick white head that sits on top of the beer throughout the entire beer.
Smell is awesome. A great clean wheat smell is dominated by spicy cloves, oranges, bananas, and a honey sweetness.
Taste lives up to the billing of the smell. A nice base of wheat and cracker. A lot of Belgian spice and coriander comes in. The orange, honey, and banana tastes come in at the end, along with a bit of Belgian sugary sweetness.
Mouthfeel is good. A medium thickness with a very sharp carbonation bite.
Drinkability is very good. A ton of tastes going on that balance very well, but all stand strong on their own. A great tasting and also refreshing beer. I could drink this beer from the beginning of the summer and never get sick of it. A great beer that I would love to get more of if I could get my hands on it.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip. Cap stamped with Lot12132 and 04/2014 (best by I assume).
A: Pours a nice slightly hazed lemon yellow with moderate carbonation producing a 2 inch bubbly white head. Good retention.
S: Nice fresh citrus (especially orange peel), wheat, bananas, clove, and hint of spice (?coriander).
T: Bananas, clove, orange peel, coriander, and hints of honey, toasted cracker, and white pepper. Very nice balance.
M: Soft wheat feel envelopes the tongue and coats the palate. Slight tingle of carbonation and spice. Finishes dry and slightly bitter.
D: A highly drinkable, very refreshing, and decently complex brew.

This is a nice wit. Looks great in the glass. I swirled the bottle real well to make sure it was well mixed. I served it in a Maredsous glass. That seemed to be a good choice.

I think this is a good representative of the style, but I think the flavor is not quite as clean as Hoegarden or Allagash white. But it is still a very good beer.

Reviewed from tasting notes.

Appears as a very lightly hazed pale yellow color with a two finger head that dies back to a stable single finger head and stays that way, small amounts of lacing left behind.
Smells a bit like pomegranite, orange peel, and peaches over a crackery malt.
The flavor is a nice blend of pear / banana fruitiness and gentle tartness with a garnish level of powdery yeastiness.
Lighter body, clean finish, creamy texture and a nice carbonation. Very memorable texture and mouthfeel IMO.
