How can you make a white beer with almost no taste? Refreshing on a hot summer day, with a bit of orange juice in the background. Almost want to put ice in it and call it a beer spritzer.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Pours a nice hazy yellow color. Decent aroma of orange, spices and coriander. Has a slight tartness on the palate with some spicey notes. Body is smooth somewhat full bodied. Finish is quick and dry. A refreshing beer.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Bottle at the Brickskeller (and a million other times because somehow I havenít rated this one yet): Slightly hazy yellow with a bit of an orange tint. Medium white head sticks atop the beer and provdes some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is estery, showing off more clove than banana, a hint of corriander, spice, and light fruit notes. Taste is spicy (corriander, clove, pepper) with notes of banana, floral hops, toast, and a bit of wheat. Light-medium bodied, excellent medium carbonation, tiny bubbles that really cleanse the palate.

This is the beer I used to drink before discovering the world of RateBeer. I had it yesterday because it was a $2 draft and it still has some good sweetness with its coriander, orange and spice tones. It still has a decent body but it seems to go flat easily and it really isnít interesting enough for me to call it a Belgian White. Drinkibility is there but the taste is above average at best.

Murky, golden/tan, white head fading fast. Iíve always liked the packaging, so an extra point for appearance. Aromas starts dry and floral with lemon, but turns rather harsh and nutty as it warms, with an inkling of burnt toast. Spicy flavor, mildly sweet/sour on a wheat base. Dry palate, but leaves a phlegmy throat and roof-of-mouth. Too unrefined to be a good Wit.

80skid (65) - New York, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Very citrusy and very smooth. Aroma has a distinct fruity, tangerine almost smell to it. Taste is unlike many beers iíve tasted probably due to the distinct citrus flavor. The aftertaste, however, is one of the best iíve ever experienced as it is very subtle yet hangs around for a while. I drank this out of the bottle poured into a pint glass.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 Bottle. Cloudy white head. Very citrus...seems like oranges and coriander to me. Not bad but everything is average. Refreshing, however and so it has to be considered successful.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - SEP 10, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Bottle. Drank this straight out of the bottle after consuming more than a few drinks. It was quite tasty - I was surprised, kind of spicy, light, and fruity. Almost tasted like blueberries and/or citrus to me, though I must admit that I was (still am) intoxicated. Seemed very light on the palate, crisp, and refreshing. Iíd like to try it again when Iím sober. Edit: Tried it again sober and I still likeit. Iím surprised.
