Pours a cloudy light orange with very little head. A real light wheat aroma, maybe some fruit like peach or orange in there. Mellow taste with hints of orange, lemon and spice. Nothing overly great, but still easy and enjoyable to drink.

This wheat beer pours out with a golden yellow/orange color. The beer is unfiltered and therefore has a nice cloudy appearance. The aroma is nothing distinct. The taste is mild and again not distinct. Not bitter nor sweet. A pinch of lemon and spices. Aftertaste is light and easy to forget. Not worth the 7 bucks I paid for it.

Pour this one into a dark glass, because you do not want to look through it. At first impression it was a little scary, kind of looking like unchanged fish bowl water. However the taste was not appalling, it just was not good. After a night of these bring some toilet paper to the throne, cause your gonna need it.

Pours cloudy yelowish/orange. Citrusy nose with a crisp taste with decent after bite. Not as strong as other belgian whites Iíve had but this is a very decent beer. Very drinkable.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, hazy pee yellow. Aroma of SPF 40 sun screen (what the hell), sweet, and over ripened banana. Tasted like drinking sun screen also. Not my cup of tea! Some how I did get the whole bottle down.

I enjoyed the hints of spices, but otherwise itís not special, though decent.

Bottle, draught. This one has gone down in quality over the last 2 years. It used to be a nice solid witbeer, but now it tastes a little like raw hot dog water. Nose is the same. Nice cloudy amber color with good head and carbonation, but it is losing my purchases as it seems to get worse with each passing month. Iíll try again soon just to be sure.

This turned out to be a good beer. Light, slightly sweet flavor with hints of clove, banana and sweet relish. The spice came through as it warmed, good overall.
