Pours with a large white frothy lasting head and a cloudy straw yellow colour. Coriander and orange peel and floral notes evident in the taste. Carbonation gives a pleasant mouthfeel. Delightful.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 Fruity aroma, lovely whitey/yellow colour, fine head.
More bitter than Hoegarden, orangy, fruity.
Refreshing palate, sparkling, thin.
Great beer. Wife still prefers Hoegarden for refreshment, since Namur is a more complex beer, with a little more bitterness.
Purchased in New York

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Purchased as ’Tesco’s Finest Belgian Wheat’ but ratebeer says this is the brewer. Cloudy straw apperance, bright white head that stays around for a bit and gives some nice lace. Aroma is coriander with a bit of an artificial tinge. Body is medium thin. Overall, not quite the complexity I like in a Wit,but nearly there.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Fine white beer with a good balance between sweet and sour. The typical white beer wheat/koriander taste is a little bit chemical; hints of blood oranges. Leaves a bit of a nasty taste behind. Quite smooth. OK beer as long as you don’t have too many.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle (expiry end 5/09) into a tumbler glass. Pours hazy dark blond with a medium sized lingering creamy white head. Perfumey aromas of blood red oranges, melons, coriander leaves and wheat. Light bodied with a lively mouthfeel. Flavour is fruity sweetish wheat malts finishing with a mildly citric acid lemony freshness. More complex than Hoegaarden Witbier which is high praise indeed if you ask me. However it is much more expensive Down Under and not readily available.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 1 pt. 9.4 fl. oz. bottle marked 30/05/11-J-10:07. It pours a very cloidy pale yellow with a large foamy head. The aroma is of malts, coriander, and citrus and somewhat enticing. The mouthfeel is fairly heavy. The taste is a fine balance of malts, orange, coriander, and other spices and downright smooth. An enjoyable experience.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled. Pours really light yellow light a BMC with a good white head. Aroma is fruits: orange and lemon dominate, but smells like a bowl of fruitloops. Flavor is really fruity with a good spiced character mixed in. Kind of a combination of juicy fruit gum and fruit loops, with belgian yeast. Very easy drinking.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle #2814 from metzlers in denton tx. this may be one of the most disappointing beers i have ever bought. poured a clear yellow with a quick fading white head. aroma of lemon, orange zest, and coriander. flavor was the same. light body with high carbonation. this was the first beer i bought because of a shelf tag. the tag was a BA tag with a rating of A- so i figured it must be somewhat good. at 9 bucks a bottle i guess i was expecting a little more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a cloudy lemony yellow color with an, initially large head, that reduces to light draping with decent lacing. Aroma is light bread malt, coriander, cloves, licorice, and a hint of citrus. Flavor is similar, with a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, a bit watery, but lively as a witbier should. There is a slightly bitter finish. Overall a decent beer, true to the style.
