3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice white beer, but not the best. A light spice added to some citrus fruit and a touch of sweetness. Not my favorite white as I found the flavors to be too weak, but all in all, a nice, easy drinking beer.

Semi-cloudy, light golden color. Corriander(?) and other spices in the nose as well as the taste, but more subtle than the few other white ales Iíve had (Belgian and not). Spice lingers in the finish. Best Iíve had of this style so far.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pale hazy lemon, low head and moderate condition. Spicy corriander and lemon in the nose and the body along with a slight tartness. Finish is sweet and chalky. Prefered this to the Cabot Street Wheat that I tried at the same time.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2003 Something of a lesson in coriander. Cloudy pale gold body with fluffy white head. Big aroma of citrus and spice with mouth of spice and sweet light malt. Superbly balanced and pleasantly dry in the finish. Great Witbier.

Cloudy, lemon yellow appearance. Very nice aroma of oranges, spice (coriander among others), and yeast. The body is spicy and yeasty with nicely balanced hop bite. This beer is on the edge of being too hoppy for the style, but pouring the yeast in the glass really relaxes the hops and creates a beautifully balanced and complex Wit, although lacking the banana notes that I love. Nice work here.

WONDERFUL! An exceptional beer. The combination of orange & corriander make the Belgian White one of my favorite beer styles. This is equal to the old Celis White or Hoegaarden White. Itís no wonder this just won a gold medal at the GABF!

A excellent wheat beer. I think one of the best I have ever had.

Much better than their pathetic attempt at a Belgian Ale. It is a cloudy pale lemon chiffon in color, with the typical witbier head. Nice notes of citrus (especially orange) and coriander in the nose. The palate is average. The flavor is vintage Belgian White, hitting all the right notes. Overall, a tasty little beer.
