Thanks to Bobby for sharing this one.

A: The pour is a very clear pale golden color with a fluffy white head.

S: The nose is full of the usual spicy characteristics of clove and coriander along with sweet wheat, citrus, and some fruity esters.

T: The flavor is quite fruity with notes of banana, pear, and apple. The wheat, malt, and sugar provide plenty of sweetness which works well with the fruitiness.

M: The body is medium with a creamy carbonation and a somewhat dry finish.

D: A much nicer beer than I was expecting. I particularly enjoyed the fruitiness of it and it was quite different from any other witbier that I've had.

Pleasantly drinkable witbeer for a Spring warm day. Pours yellow body with some white lasting head. A little wheat and yeast aroma, its fine. Medium mouthfeel, nice wheat and balanced and crisp finish, a little lemon and without astringency of some. From Premiere Gourmet.

750ml bottle poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Triverius is a clear, spritzy gold with a huge, fluffy white head, pretty long lasting, leaving foamy lace. Save for some darker flecks of sediment on the latter pours, it's awfully clear for a wheat beer, let alone a wit. Pretty cool medieval label, a quote referencing the holy grail that perhaps the name of this brew is also associated with?

Smell is at first yeasty, with a dry mineral bite, then heavy citrus, orange and more so lemon. I have to say I really enjoyed it, almost saison like. Some nice floral notes as it warmed up from cellar temp. To bad the taste never really follows suit...

Taste is very clean malt and spicy, dry. Rather simple really, mostly just spices, though they're less citrus like the nose and more of just a generic, biting spiciness, I assume mostly coriander, with a slightly yeasty aftertaste. While the bottle itself makes no claims to a witbier, merely a Belgian wheat ale, there's surely no oats, and frankly, I'm not getting a lot of wheat either. No flaws, but no fireworks either, just an average, fairly boring Belgian blonde. I had to bump it up a 1/2 a point by the end for being pretty clean, and drinking much lighter then it's ABV.

Mouthfeel is dry and slick, medium light bodied, seems chalky, high in bicarbonate, although it might just be the spices.

Drinkability is ok, unassuming, but a decent thirst quencher that you could surely knock back a few with ease, until the spiciness caught up to you. But frankly, there's nothing about it that makes me want another, today or any other. That said, I picked up steam with rather suprising ease by the last glass, and was impressed by the buzz that such an unassuming little brew packed. Probably a good gateway beer for Belgian noobs.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a large wine goblet. Best buy date of 5/2009. Moderate to slow pour yields one inch of billowy cotton white head. Head slowly diminishes to a fine uneven skim of champagne like bubbles. Moderate lacing. Beer pours a very light and totally clear, which is uncharacteristic for a wheat beer, straw yellow. Nose is of pale malt with hints of citrus, and flowers. On the palate, very sharp carbonation, hints of banana, bubble gum followed. Nice body, light sweetness, very clean in the finish, with faint hop bitterness. Booze is totally concealed. Nice beer!

Good and lasting head and a orangegolden beercolor, nice clouwdy. Nose is very much aronge peals( with sour hint) and lots of koreander dominating the whole nose. Hard to find any maltyness or other flavour. This counts also for taste that is again a mixture of orange and koreander, maltyness though now noticeable as is a tiny bit of hop in aftertaste. Good carbonisation and freshness makes mouthfeel good but IMO far too much orange and koreander.
