Look- Golden, cloudy liquid with a fluffy white head that settles to about 1/2 finger. No lacing

Aroma- bready, with a little bubblegum and coriander. I pick up a little orange in the aroma , but only after I've tasted it.

Taste- Unlike the aroma, I get a lot of orange peel in the taste. There's also some malt sweetness, a little bubblegum and coriander.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied and very soft

Overall- great witbier, really well-executed and the flavors are subtle and blend together very nicely.

Orange gold color with above average carbonation . Orange peel,spice,and yeast was the out front flavor. This brewery is one of my favorites and this beer doesn't disappoint. Not a session beer but great in its own way

Hazy golden color with fluffy head and great carbonation. Lemon, clove, Belgian
spice, honey, lavender, and a kiss of peach and melon. An almost champagne-like
yeast character. Good beer with perhaps a bit too much spice or sweetness. It
gets a 88/100.

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was an extremely nice looking hazy pale golden yellow with a decent one finger to one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipates within about less than a minute. There isn’t much lacing. The smell has a super nice blend of coriander to orange peel leading to a nice sweet lemon-like lingering aroma just rolling all around underneath my nose. The taste was pretty sweet through the orange but gently lets in the coriander to add a very nice spicy element to the flavor. There’s a slight refreshing sweet to spicy aftertaste that ends up leading to a slight coriander semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation is right on par for the style and for me. Overall, it's a pretty good witbier that I could come back to.

Pours a hazed golden orange with a massive, pillowy white head that retains and laces excellently. Aromas of fruity yeast esters (banana and fresh dough), clove, honey, and nutmeg. Taste is very banana-forward, with notes of clove, pilsner malts, wheat, and lemon. Refreshing mouthfeel. High carb, light body. This is the best Belgian-style wit I've had yet -- up there with Weihenstephaner's hefe, and only ~$9/sixer

87/100

Pours a cloudy gold with an enormous head. Head breaks leaving some nice lacing and collar. Smell is spices a touch if banana and of course that Unibroue yeast. Taste is much like the nose, though there is wheat on the tongue too. Feel is higher than average carbonation and a medium/light feel.

Not my favorite of the Unibroue family but a good beer nonetheless.

5/31/16 (Chicago, IL). 12 oz bottle poured into Weizen glass. Clear yellow pour, minimal head and carbonation. Wheat, orange and banana aroma. Taste consistent with aroma, somewhat sour taste. Very clear, minimal texture or mouth feel, like water going down. Overall good offering.

This beer is the best of all time. It is the best white beer I had form now and definitely the best one from the Uibroue Brewery. The yeast they use to brew this white is really the real deal. This beer have put Unibroue on the map. They have many good beer but nothing like this one.

I have tried a couple of beer that have copy this white Belgian, like the Blanche de Shawi, from Le trou du diable brewery, but they did surpassed yet the super nice taste of this one.

In my quest of white beer tasting hobby, this one is always my reference to compare the white beer.
