Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow. Large white head. Mild aroma. Flavor is very yeasty with some citrus. A bit of spice on the tongue. Some lacing. Looks thin, but actually had a nice body. Not a great beer, but very drinkable and I would drink it again it shows up on my travels.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden to yellow and left a lot of lace that looked good... Light body with light spice flavors. Not exactly my cup of tea, but is clean and crisp to drink.

Patrickctenchi (4110) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Cloudy, pale lemonade-gold...HUGE white head at pour....sweet lemon scent...all sweet citrus flavour, some wheat, slight banana. Extremely easy to drink, but would probably get too cloyingly sweet after more than a couple at a sitting.Very nice, though....pleasant.

Aroma is wheat/malts, spices and orange/lemon. The flavor is wheat grain/malty along with a decent underlying fruit/spice flavor. Relatively light in body but with a witbier its expected, this was pretty good.

[Bottle] Gusher! Pours a light golden color with a ton of head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is of grainy wheat, lemon and light yeast. Mild esters and light hops mix with cereal grains and grass in the taste. Light and fairly well balanced. OK overall. I thought this one may have been a bad bottle considering how it started, but the taste was fine.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Indianapolis. Pours a hazy golden with an explosive head. Not a gusher from the bottle thankfully but the rocky white head is so huge this is taking forever to pour. Aroma of bread, spice, butter, corn. The taste is almost champagne-like... grapes, apples, bread, spices. Tart finish. Doesnít smell great and annoying as heck, but Iím actually liking the taste.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2011 Okay, I donít need this much foam. Also, an actual aroma would be good, other than alcohol. Bland, oh wait. This is a Belgian White. Why do they call it a blonde? Grrr... well, I guess itís not all that bad. The head sucks. Bought a six pack, so I get to re-experience this gem. Bottle cap came off with a loud pop like champagne. This isnít good as a Belgian white or a blonde ale. I think itís fitting that they are calling this a blonde. This is not a blonde ale. Even rate beer has it as a Belgian wit. Thatís what itís closer too, for sure.

Hazy golden yellow, frothy head, good lacing. Taste is dominated by citrus and straw, with a bittering finish from citrus acid and mild hops. Drinkable.
