   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 5/20
Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Aroma is exactly that of a dish of canned apricots. Fruity and sweet, very nice, though just a bit buttery. Hazy golden yellow with thin white head. Watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts mildly fruity, with apricot and citrus, and some spicy character. Chalky yeasty bitterness toward finish and into the after. Overall, it’s rather watery and not that colorful. Mild acidity. Disappointing taste after that nice aroma.

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2005
Featherweight Belgian witbier that ranks high on my list of favourite summer quenchers. The palate is a little skinny for some tastes and the finish a little abrupt but it’s hard to beat when the mercury is pushing into the thirties. It pours a cloudy lemon colour with a healthy white head. The nose has mouth-watering grapefruit notes and a little spice. The body is gossamer-thin and quenching. There are hints of banana and tea and the mildest of finishes. Nothing very complex here but it’s very more-ish. (Bottle)

jonas (5643) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2004
Pretty standard witn nose. Cloudy yellow, rather low head. Perfumed flowery flavors are overpowering. Thinbodied, somewhat flat mouthfeel. Rather one-dimensional wit.

larsniclas (5613) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2004
Draught at Delirium café, Bruxelles, Belgium. Hazy golden with a white head. Fresh and fruity aroma and flavour. Flowery citrus, Grapefruit though rather short.

rlgk (10600) - 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 (1404) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2004
Fruity aroma with clear pale yellow colour. Sweet fruit flavour with fizzy palate.

jgb9348 (4737) - 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 (11535) - 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.
