Yes, the Belgians do it right. One of the best Wits I've had. Light and delicate.

Pours cloudy yellow-white. Smell is lemon, tart wheat, cream. Taste is mostly lemon cream, no tartness. Good mouthfeel, slightly thick and creamy.

Backlog. 11.2 oz bottle. Smells of old socks, Sweet-tarts. This is the most unpleasant Wit I’ve ever smelled. Pours a nice head which dissipates somewhat quickly; pale, pale yellow hue; lots of sediment floating around in there. Taste is sour, then sweet. This is the weirdest Wit I’ve yet to try. Not bad at all, though--apart from the aroma.

Nice light, crisp beer. Generous lace with appealing hazy, light pale yellow color. Taste of hop and citrus accompanied with a slight spicey spike. Medium carbonation and smooth feel.

Hazy pale colour, two fingers head with long retention that fades to a thin layer. Good lace. Aroma of cloves, banana, apricot, coriander, some citrus. Thick oily palate, strong carbonation and medium body. Taste has some clove, banana, citrus, coriander. Good refreshing blanche.
