rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2004
Hazy light yellow, quite nice white head. Has a fresh aroma from grapefruits. The grape is there in the flavor as well with some citrus. Quite a mild finish. A good weissbier.

Lunkie (1392) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2004
Fruity aroma with clear pale yellow colour. Sweet fruit flavour with fizzy palate.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2004
Hazy golden coloured body with a large frothy white head. Aroma of coriander seed, slight corn and some malt. Light malty flavour some clove and curacao but not much else. Aftertaste super clean, nothing crazy at all. Overall, nice to try but don't expect a superb beer! I had this beer on draught at Chez Antoinette in Washington, D.C. on 05-March-2004.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAR 11, 2004
Cloudy, murky yellow. Looks like a urine sample with a cotton head. Smells very clean and fresh, coriander. Taste is light and includes malt, curaco, coriander. Aftertaste is like hydrogen peroxide, feels cottony on the tongue. This beer is not very good

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2004
White head that sits well and laces up nicely. Less hazy than hoegaarden. Soft aroma, coriander with lemon and vanilla. Best palate of a white I can remember having, nice and full and smooth, the tartness makes a nice edge as your mouth empties. Sweet and maybe even a hint of vanilla malt? Lingering tart lemon. Nice, I'd like to side by side this with hoegaarden. (Other people are commenting on a watery thing. I definitely didn't get that. I had it at room temp, maybe that's the difference?)

argo0 (11319) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 29, 2004
(draft) Thickly hazed lemon body with small white head. Aroma is lemon, yeast, wheat. Taste is medium sweet, wheat, lemon/tart, very well balanced. Body is light, tart, some acidic.

Betty (235) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2003
Another "belgian" (like Caporal) which seems to be showing up almost exclusively in Aussie bottleos by the looks of the raters below. Anyway, this beer is an ok wit which seems to want to be something like hoegarden white but just isn't as well done. A bit hay flavoured.

bluevegie (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2003
Hazy with a bright white frothy head which didn't quite last the whole drink. Slight taste of banana and lemon zest. Easy drinking but not full flavoured would be good for a hot summers day.

LoveABeer (141) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2003
Pour's a cloudy golden color, with minimal head. Thin and water body, with a sweet taste of maybe banana and cloves. Easily a drink that could be consumed by the barrel loads during summer.

Choos (590) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2003
Reminds me VERY much of Delirium Tremens which is a good thing. Small head on it that quickly disappeared. Cloudy honey orange colour. It is not as full bodied as a Delirium Tremens but it is only 5% so it doesn't need to blend as much as the DTs. Lightly spicy, fruity and not bitter. No foul banana flavours presented themselves to me in this brew. As for aroma it is strong in volatiles but if you enjoy it in Delirium Tremens you should be right.
