Not really a wit beer. Lots of cider, sour/tart wheaty notes. Fruit, tart. Really, really nice. WAY better than I expected! Crisp, perfectly balanced. Definitely not a wit, though. Not near as amazing as Saison Dupont, though.

Very light, yellow beer with a small white heads. A little bit hazy.

Nose: Citrus, orange, Belgian yeast, apple and goosberry.
Taste: Very light, waterish taste but still good! Refreshing. Citrus, coriander, grass, herbs and sweet malt.
Body: Light body and medium, soft, carbonation.

I think this beer is perfect a warm summer day!

Relatively clear golden yellow color with a fluffy head with short retention.
Nice aroma with good spices, oranges, lemon, coriander, some banana, wheat and pineapples.
Flavor of pineapple core, coriander, lemon, yeast, wheat, some musty funkiness from its lactic acid, pears and lemongrass. Dry aftertaste, slightly acid.
Light body with good effervescent carbonation.
Although it underplays a bit the Witbier general flavors compared to top range, it got a mild funky must twist, that overcompensates its blandness.

250ml bottle. It appears that 'Hainaut' is a province of Wallonia, as conveniently depicted on the label here. My inner geography geek very much appreciates that.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden straw colour, with one flabby finger of puffy, densely foamy eggshell white head, which leaves a bit of splattered paint lace around the glass as it quickly bleeds out of sight.

It smells of rather sweet, sugary pale malt, citrus cream, softly astringent yeast, some light white pepper, and a mild herbal hop character. The taste is much less saccharine, with a grainy pale maltiness, a more assertive yeastiness, some softly fruity orange pith, banana chips, earthy coriander, ethereal black pepper, an echo of musty funk, and herbal, leafy hops.

The bubbles are tame in strength, and frothy all the same, the body an adequate medium weight for the style, and genuinely smooth, nothing really having the gumption to take a marring shot. It finishes on a drying note, the graininess of the malt taking that tact, the yeast holding fast, and the herbal hops lingering on.

An enjoyable witbier, the expected guest ingredients trailing off slowly through the life of the beer - big in the aroma, but hardly noticeable at the end. Subtly can take you a long way, and that's the boat this offering has tagged a ride on. Worthy of a go, just don't be surprised when the tiny bottle is prematurely drained.

Cloudy, bright yellow color with big fluffy white head. Aroma is nice and spicy. Taste follows with spices and just a hint of tartness. Very refreshing with high carbonation (a bit too high for my taste). Overall a very nice wit.
