Pours a slightly hazy very pale straw color with a bit over a finger of moussy head that exhibits decent retention. Aroma is pleasant although a touch subdued. There is a fair amount of complexity here but it is in no way overwhelming. There is some spicy wheat, coriander, some light pepper, and a moderate zesty, orange fruitiness. Taste is pretty good. A grainy, at times spicy, wheat flavor is present throughout. The zesty orange citrus flavor is a bit more dominant here that in the aroma. The coriander is fairly subdued. Hop bitterness is very low. The finish is fairly dry and a bit tart. Mouthfeel is ok, medium-light in body with moderate-high carbonation, slightly creamy. Drinkaiblity is pretty good. I enjoyed this brew but I don't find myself immediately reaching for another.

Wittekerke has a thick, white head, and a very cloudy, lemon-yellow appearance, with bubbles streams and lots of tan chunks floating about. A bit of lacing is left behind. The aroma is of pungent, bread and yeast, with a faint citrus and sweet back note. Taste is of the strong yeast, some mint or other odd herb, wheat bread, and lots of tap water. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Wittekerke finishes semi-dry, easy-drinking, and rather bland. It’s not too good, really.
