500ml bottle bought from Sainsbury's..

Poured a hazy straw yellow colour... White head poured quite small then faded quickly to very thin layer.... No real lacing...

Aroma - Strong spicy / pepperiness, nice wheatiness, light biscuit malts, tart spicy fruits (lemons, limes, pears), bready / yeasty notes, light coriander and basil hints, herbal / floral, grassy, very faint hops, some light honey...

Taste – Nice, light, fresh juicy fruitiness (spicy apples, grapefruits, lemons and pears), spicy / herbal notes, peppery, some slight medicinal hints, wheaty / breadiness, soda water notes, some vanilla creaminess, basil, light floral hops...

Feel - Pretty sharp and dry. Light body. Extremely drinkable and refreshing - would be nice on a hot summer day...

Overall - An excellent, and slightly unusual, witbier - one of my favourites.... Recommended...

Nice deep golden misty golden colour. Hardly any carbonation.
The head is creamy snow white, but almost totally disappears.
The odour is mainly fruit and spices. Sweetened lemon with a bit of oranges, fresh flowers, hop and yeast and slight honey.
It tastes sweeter then I expected. Citrus fruits, cookie dough, malt, avocado and spices.
Aftertaste is full bodied, citrus, cookie dough, flowers, walnut and spices.

A nice witbier.

Pours a murky, hazy light honey color.
Aroma is medium-color fruit and some light earth, grass and flowers.
Flavor is wheat, light spice and some pale malt.
Mouthfeel is light and refreshing with a little spicy kick at the end but also some grit and chalk on the palate.
Drinkability is very high and enjoyable on a nice summer day. A different twist on the Witbier style.

The beer pours a “Chill Hazed”, lemon yellow with a modest creamy white head and the residual lace a filmy sheet to conceal the glass. Ah, the nose, lemons, fresh cut grass, yeast, sweet malted grains a plethora of olfactory delights. Start is sweet then turns quickly tart at the middling top. Finish is almost ferine in its acidity, the pleasant and spicy, quite dry and a very drinkable beer, not a great wit, but quite drinkable nonetheless.

Hazy straw "white-ish" color with a low white head. Fruity earthy aroma with a light spiciness to it. Has a big fruity taste with alight spicy finish. Light bodied and very refreshing. A great more-than-one beer ! Wish the bottle was bigger...

[10.2 oz bottle - labelled Waere Witte - 6.5% ABV per bottle]

Great on tap. Very nice pale yellow hazy appearance, with a nice head and great lace. Spicy lemony aroma. Very fresh and spicy, a great beer for summer, if only they imported it down under........

Had on tap and fresh at a cafe in Amsterdam. The appearance is substantially rich looking with a dense cloudiness and off-white head. The flavor doesn't dissappoint either. Spicy, fruity and creamy. The taste buds welcome this brew wholly.

Hazy, yellow color with only the slightest hint of orange. Light bodied. Subdued flavor profile (not too strong), but has a fair bit of complexity. Head quickly disappears and does not cling to glass. Overall a tasty and interesting beer.
