KUEric (888) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2005 Bottle: A fantasic beer! The spice in the flavor suprised me for a white, although it was a smooth and refreshing as any white Ive had. There was some definite clove in the taste and maybe a liuttle dough as well. The appearence was fairly standard though, but that was the only real drawback, although the lacing was impressive and constant throughout.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours a hazy light yellow with a small bit of fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet hay, spices, and sugary fruit. Flavor is very yeasty and fruity, though not in a good way. Sweetness is too overpowering and there is little in the way of balance. Overall, not my favorite.

MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2005
a light golden color w/ a thin white head and some nice sign of carbonation. a straw scent w/ yeast and cinammon a tiny bit of fruity but Im not sure what that was. Palate is pretty middle of the road w/ a nice carbonation. Flavor is a bit belgian an odd fruit sweetness a yeasty flavor and a spicy cinamony taste. Pretty good stuff.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
Cloudy pale yellow, huge white head is mostly lasting and displaying efficient lacing. An estery yeast strain procures dried pineapple to the nose with a more than honest dose of hops that counter the sweetness with grace and enhance the drinkability. The excellent hop background continues its wonders in mouth, drying out what could otherwise have been a cloying fruitiness that rather comes out just a bit oily and juicy here. Most delicate wheat profile, but bold overall character. The body is light to medium at most, but certainly does feel bigger than it is, just like Id have expected this one to be 5-6% ABV. An awesome witbier, more akin to a german weizen except for that soft coriander feel. Very good stuff, Id sure want more of that both now and tomorrow. Thanks a lot Denis.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2005 Pours a hazy straw color with a thin white head. Appealing aroma of yeast, spices and fruit. Very good flavor of yeast, spices and fruit, the coriander is mostly subdued, wich is strange for a witbier but it works really well. The finish is dry. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Thanks to csbosox for sending this.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle courtesy of csbosox: Hazy straw yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is a slightly tart wheat, bread dough, yeast, and citrus. Light bodied, low (though spritzy) carbonation. Taste is light clove, sweet then quickly mildly tart wheat, light banana, and lots of spicy yeast flavors. Very nice, though the finish has an almost dry cardboard & yeast feel to it.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2005
Fizzy white head, hazy pale yellow body. Wheaty and citrusy aroma with some yeast. Mild and fresh. Mild wheaty and fruity flavor. Soft mouthfeel. A pretty good wheat beer.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 28, 2005
Amber golden and very murky pour, with hardly coated with a pure white head. Appears heavily carbonated. Lemon and ester aroma, very bright, with a little background of wheat. Oooo...wow, the flavor is very complex. Front end of good mellow wheat and fruit, with some apricot. Finishes with a fantastic bright almond flavor. The palate is very drinkable and not a slew thick wheat, and leaves a fantastic honey flavored sweet aftertaste and smack. Great beer! Ill add that this beer has probably had some beer store age.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 16, 2005
12 oz bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with a small head that settled into just a thin sheet. Aroma is bready, estery and malty. Taste is smooth but had a medicinal thing going on. Some lemon tartness and some peppery spice but subtle.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2005
Perfectly clear golden body with a thin white head, lots of carbonation. Estery banana aroma tempered by potpourri. Big yeasty/spice flavor. Tastes like a normal hefeweizen with slightly metallic coriander thrown in. Eh.
