Poured a cloudy golden colour with a white foamy head that faded fast leaving little lacing. Low carbonation. Aroma slightly of grain as well as citrus sweetness. Taste was initially spicy and citrus but that faded and it became fairly flat and a little bland. Light in mouth. Dry and slightly bitter finish.

341ml bottle on a patio, in place of a pint of Blanche de Chambly which probably didn’t help. Hazy golden yellow with a nice white head...sorta stopped being nice at that point. Not much to it (maybe why its served with an orange slice on tap) apart from grains, light caramel and lemon. High carbonation, light body, slightly skunky and sweet taste, get a bit of spice on the finish though.

341ml bottle pours a cloudy pale golden color with a small white head that settles to a thin cap leaving very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus and mild spices. Taste is light malty sweetness with some light spice and a light citrus hop bitterness. Body is a little bit thin and carbonation barely adequate. Not quite as good as Rickard’s White, which is one of my favorite macro’s.

Si ça aspire à être une witbier belge, c’est un échec. à peu prêt aucun gout d’agrume et pas épicé. Juste un peu acide et malté. Plate. Seulement tolérable si il fait chaud et qu’on veut se rafraîchir et qu’il n’y pas d’alternative.

Medium white head doesn’t last. Hazy nearly opaque yellow body with floaties. Mealy orangey aroma, very bland. Dryish peppery orangey taste with lavender and cinnamon notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish mealy orangey aftertaste with pumpkin spice notes. Nice, and the spice is more subdued than in most US pumpkin beers, but still... too perfumy. (0.341l bottle, CitySuper IFC, Hong Kong.)

i thought it was a dismal attempt to copy a great beer, the ones that i bought were very cloudy, and had a lot of stuff floating that eventually sank to the bottom of the glass. i’m just glad that i always use a glass, a mouthful of whatever it was might not have been very pleasant. a definate looser for Keiths!

Always willing to try another overfiltered macro beer, I sought this one out. Poured into a tall beer glass at 6c/42.8f, perhaps a little cooler than necessary for this kind of beer - but about an average temperature for a macro brew. It has an okay hazy gold-yellow body with just a bit of head on top, well tempered by macro chemicals I’m sure. Aroma is soft citrus moderated by light malt notes. Flavour is an odd mix of bready malts, citrus, and a caramel aftertaste that flattens what should be a sharp finish. It comes off as odd and doesn’t quite work - this is a strange tasting attempt at a Belgian wit.

Premium, eh? Must be good. Nope. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with a small white ring. Looks like a Belgian white, I’ll give them that. Minimal smell- almost nothing at all. Flavor of wheat, banana, lemon, and the same annoying soapy note I got in most of their other beers. Light-bodied. Dull.

Well its beer, enjoyed this at a birthday party. Very generic. Pours gold with white head. Aroma was grass and fait hints of citrus. Taste was sweet. Very light mouthfeel and easy to drink.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Can. Pretty meidocre. I’m a sucker for white beer, but this one is pretty bland. Cloudy and not very flavourful.
