This beer pours a cloudy(as it should) dull golden yellow with a bubbly white head. The mouthfeel is moderate with a silkiness from the suspended yeast. The smell is of spicey bread. The taste is zesty effervescence with hints of perhaps coriander-very crisp and clean. A crisp clean refreshing witte.

A cloudy, dull golden yellow Belgian wheat ale with a bubbly, white head. I smell spice and wheat. At first I taste is a slightly citrus/bitter effervescence, followed by a spice I cannot quite place, then malt, with a wheaty finish, and a lingering citrus-ness on my tongue. The body has a moderate silky feel (from the yeast) in my mouth. Overall, to quote myself, "yum".

Hazy yellow-orange color. Bleached white head that hung around. Solid citrus with light spice on the nose. Not quite as spiced as Hoegaarden but the wheat comes through clearly. The citrus zest lingers on the tongue. Dry finish.

Hazy, cloudy yellow-orange with a low white head and decent carbonation. Nice perfumy fruit and spice aroma. Lemony, tart and winey flavor - a bit too tart and winey for me. Medium bodied and creamy. Finishes with a tart dryness.

Note: Not sure of the relationship between this beer and Kuurnse Wit (which is supp 7.5% ABV)... Michael Jackson leads you to believe they are the same but don't see how that is possible based on ABV on bottle. Anyone know ?

3.5/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The pour is a nice "Chill Hazed" lemon yellow orange color with a brilliant white head that is preposterous in size, the lace in thick glutinous sheets that cling tightly to the glass. Nose is earthy, citrus, light hints of coriander; the start is lightly sweet, the top middling in mouth feel. Finnish is quite tart, the carbonation stinging, and the hops pleasant enough with a dry aftertaste, a nice representative “Wit” beer and worth a sample.

Golden, unfiltered hazy milky yellowy colour. Pours with a huge head that soon settles down to about 1/4" down to the last mouthful, which coats the glass edges with a mottled lace clearly marking the volume drunk of the last mouthfull. Lovely fresh faintly spicy aroma, clean and crisp with a long-tasting fruity, body. Mmmm, this is really good. Strong wheat ale taste and quite dry. A solid unfiltered wheat beer. The label is white with a blue sash top right to bottom left and a red coat of arms over the a picture of donkey. Label also states that it is imported by WIN-IT-TOO (Globalbeer).
