Bottled: Light yellow. Hazy. Thin white quickly diminishing head. Yeast, rubber and spices in the aroma. Banana, citrus, spices and some yeast in the flavour. Dies quickly on the palate. I've had much better Belgian Witbiers.

Nice white head though fast disappearing. Cloudy yellow golden colored body. Nose is lots of yeast and some citrus. Sour flavor with tones of yeast, citrus and hops. Watery aftertaste. A fresh but not very full beer.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Tried on draught in various Amsterdam bars. This is a delicious wit beer, bright, sweet and exquisitely fruity. With or without a wedge of lemon, this is a swig of citrus heaven.

Standard wheat beer appearance with a big white head. Airy citric aroma with a slightly bitter citrus flavour. Overall a reasonable wheat beer but I've had alot better.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2003 Man, if this stuff had just a bit bigger taste and more body. It looks lovely, with a big head that leaves a bit of lacing and a light yellow opaque colour.
Smell is all citrousy, lemon and orange and really splendid. I could sniff this all day!
The taste is more bitter than expected. Classic Belgian Witbeer really with a more bitter aftertaste. Only problem is the less than full body and a nice flavour that could really be bigger.
Lovely witbier, but can stand improving.

Bottled (0.7 l). Very cloudy golden coloured, lots of yeast. Strong yeasty aroma and flavour, some citrus. Disappointing.

Had this on tap at Cafe Belgique on a recent trip to Amsterdam. Ligher in aroma and flavor than Hoegaarden. Had a very mild tart flavor (like slightly unripe fruit) that gave it a little pucker. Very drinkable.

This puppy arrived today in a box from Belgium! Got the Blanche de Namur glass too! (Praise to Belgian Shop) Nice cloudy whit-ish color and an egg-white head. A bit lighter in the aroma/flavor/abv department when compared to Hoegaarden. Wonderfully refreshing. A good "lawnmower", but not like my favorite "Hoe"!
