won this in a lif, poured into my duvel tulip glass, poured a cloudy yellowish white color with a head for days, the smell is sour with a hint of spices. the taste in this one a bland sour in the begining the middle is ciniman =, safron, some light malt at the start, then the end is sour with a bitter finish, this is an ok vershion of a witbier but one is enough for me

33cl green bottles, enjoyed at and then from a saved bottle from the BCTC fest in August. Comes with best before dating of "06 2009". Pours cloudy, white peach, with a fine bubble white head, rising to about two inches and showing much better then moderate retention. The look develops with a tiny bubble film and nice sticky lace, surrounding a merainge cap. Nice looking stuff. Fruity nose, I believe I can pick up so light pepper as well. Quite refreshing and enjoyable wit. Zesty, citrus, general fruityness, plenty of lemon/lime. Clean and crisp late, fine summer quaffer, bring on the hot weather lunches of salads, cheese and bread and this will be a fine partner

Green bottle of Vedett Extra White, 33cl. Best before 05 2010. Never seen this beer before, purchased in Japan.

Looks good - very cloudy straw-coloured brew with glowing white head, heaps of lacing and fine carbonation.
Served cold, around the recommended 3°C, and aromas aren't overwhelming, but some are noticeable. Lemon oil in particular, and a faint breadiness. Delicate but not a rich bouquet.
Taste is mild but refreshing. Not astringent, but cleansing and doesn't leave any tastes in the mouth. Would make a good inter-beer palate cleanser. Bitter and lemony on the palate, not a lot of flavour on the tongue but very nice as a sophisticated thirst-quencher.
A little drying in the mouthfeel, but that's the idea. Would go very well with greasy food. Easy to quaff, would also couple well with chili dishes.

I like this beer even though there's not a whole lot to it. I'll probably buy it again, although it's an expensive import in Japan; no local beers come anywhere near this light, satisfying quaffer.

Very specific beer, amazing aroma and feel. Strong in my opinion. Hard to describe, you need to try this.

16oz glass, a surprise find at MKT.

This beer appears a cloudy, pink-tinged pale straw colour, with the thinnest of thin caps of wispy lace, which leaves some attractive rocky promontory lace around the glass as things slowly bleed away.

It smells of semi-sweet wheat malt, orange citrus cream, savoury coriander, earthy yeast, and a bit of green vegetable astringency. The taste is still more or less sweet - not so crisp wheaty malt, muted white pepper and coriander spice, a hint of Certs menthol, and a fading acerbic yeastiness.

The bubbles are fairly underwhelming for the most part, the body medium-light in weight, and somewhat smooth, the yeast and edgy fruit mucking about a bit too much. It finishes off-dry, the sugary wheat carrying on, amongst a fading spice and yeast offset.

A simple witbier, to be sure - all the marks are hit, sure, but in a newbie-friendly, less than challenging manner. Easy enough to put back, but not something I could justify repeating over the course, of well, anything, especially today.

A: Not much for a head, translucent slightly dark yellow. can't see any rising carbonation.
S: Traditional witbier smell, but perhaps on the strong side, richer and going deeper. Quite floral, like a magnolia. A very true floral smell, unlike any other beer I've had. Certainly a floral yeast.
T: Promising smell but the flavor doesn't deliver. Hollow like many witbiers. Quite lemony, but nearly zero sweetness, kinda like a failed lemonade. Tart, sour and a bit bitter. But almost not bad. Still drinkable. Wheaty.
M: Sourness, hair astringent. Dry. Light to medium body.
O: I hate to say this, but it would probably be better if sugar was added. Mediocre

Purchased at the LCBO 4pk of 330ml bottles for $12.00. Served at 4deg C in a challis.

A- Opens really well. Pours a high white head. Unfiltered but really light colored. Unusual

S- Very nice yeast as expected from a white beer. Coriander

T- Light that is for sure. Not a Hoegaarden but good in it's own way. Yeast is there. It's Hoegaarden missing some ingredients.

M- Light on the tongue and dry.

O- Nice to have tried this. Will sip the other 3 as time passes but will not buy again

Food Pairing

This ok white beer went well with... eggs with ham and toast
