Poured a hazy yeklow color with big blooming head,smell was very lemony and almost to sour.Like others who have reviewed this I think this lacked spiciness that Iam accustomed to with this style,way to one-dimensional.Not overly impressed with this one,there are many better out there.

Appearance Typical hazy light yellow in color with a nice, frothing head that went down quick and clean.
Smell The natural Witbier aroma is very light. I can pick up a zesty, lemon-orange citrus almost like a Sprite with hints of spices.
Taste The zesty fruits took over at the pour. I like to see at least a little bit of yeast in my Wits.
Mouthfeel The carbonation was there but a bit too fizzy for my tastes. Otherwise it was light-bodied and nice.
Drinkability This one was OK but I wouldnt buy again.

wit bier in a can! hell yeah!
A: decent, needs more and fluffier head but otherwise, good color.
S: not much, a little citrus, a little grassy, and a slightly off metallic quality.
T/M: soft with a slight citric tang. yeasty and mild sourdough character. unfortunately the iron appears on the finish as well as the nose. creamy light body and refreshing.
D: goes down very easy, fix the metallic quality and a sure winner.
a one dimensional beer but I dig the can. better wit's for sure but nothing worth avoiding in this one.

Wittekerke Belgian White beer. 5% alcohol content.
A- Hazy off yellow color that shows a very small head and good lace retention. The lacing is most impressive as it remains on the top of the glass with every sip I make. Note: Small wheat grains float in the light.
S- Fresh wheat and malt are light by apparent with hints of sweet grains and yeast.
T- Taste is a very refreshing wheat and mild malty nose with very simple yeast patterns on the finish.
M-D- Fresh on the palete with nothing offensive at all. Mild wheats and malts have a mild astringent feel on the mouth. Highly drinkable Belgian wheat beer. Not my first or last.

Pours a murky lemon color. Smells like lemon, pith especially. Taste is quite refreshing, but also different: Seriously, this is like drinking a lemon meringue pie. Nevertheless, it's quite refreshing, probably better for a warm summer day than a cold fall night. That, or dessert. ;-)

11.2 oz can. Pours a hazy light yellow with a thin fine white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is bright citrus fruits (lemon, orange), wheat and some light spices (corriander).
The flavor is sweet soapy wheaty malts and lemon peel with a crisp finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some sharp carbonation.
Overall, a solid wit, a little too sweet. It's a nice change of pace for canned beer.

Presentation: 11.2 oz can, freshness date on the bottom.
Appearance: Thin stark white lacing with minimal stickage. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness showing some flaky particles of sediment.
Smell: Fresh squeezed lemon juice, bit of citric zest and a mélange of spicing where it is difficult to pick anything out other than some liquorice and citric peel.
Taste: Peculiar mouth feel as it feigns a medium body, semi crisp with a slick backend. Lots of lemon flavour with a plum fruitiness on the side, grainy with some malt sweetness and a wheat twang. Chalky yeast, citric peel and other obscure spicing abound. Finsihes with trace hop flavour and more earthy yeast.
Notes: I’d prefer this brew bottle-conditioned though the canned version is not bad at all and is a perfect switch if in a situation that restricts you to canned beverages only. All in all a decent white ale.

11.2 ounce blue can, with some sort of dating/info on the bottom. Pours the expected, cloudy light yellow shade. Soft white head, with good retention. leaves scattered, sticky lacing. Nose is oddly metalic, with some spice and fruit. Medium bodied, notes of cloves, flowers. Fair wit, not the best, but worth a try. Refreshing stuff. Fine for a summer picnic. One of the more interesting canned beers out there.

Sticky white lacing that persists. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness and some sediment. A flashlight revealed more sediment in bottom of can trough so I poured some beer back into can and vigorously swirled.
Aroma of bread and oranges with a predominant yeast overtone. Actually smells like orange flavored dough rising.
Taste is fresh baked bread with malty sweet orange zest. The finish has a slight metallic twang, presumably from the can. Perhaps the most yeasty, bready witbier to date. The yeast aroma persists throughout the session while the metallic note fades into non-existence. There is a pleasant, lingering orange oil finish after several minutes.
For yeast lovers this is a superb witbier that achieves near perfection, at least for my palate.

Has a "banana" color, similar to fresh lemonade. Head is very light.
Sweet wheat scent. I would like scent to be stronger... missing clove or banana scent.
Sweet citris flavor with a lot of grain in the finish. Tastes better than it smells.
Brite and carbonic but also coats mouth well. Feels good... a little more carbonation than a typical wheat.
Smooth flavor and great aftertaste. The beer is very tasty overall. A little different then a typical wheat.

What an absolutely refreshing treat. This well brewed beverage pours from the growler a cloudy light-gold color, with a descent but not huge foamy head. The smell is pleasant, with a nice spiced grassy aroma of herbs and fruit. The taste is wheaty and wonderful. This is brew of exceptional drinkability. I regret not buying more, after the very first taste. Definitely pickup growler of this witbier, or give it a try if you see it!
