Hazy gold with medium white head. Light citrus aroma. Clean tasting, again with predominate citrus flavors. Slightly acidic astringent finish. Thirst quenching, but not particularly distinguished.

Tap at Holy Grail in Cincinnati. Pours like any other wit, except for the orange slice in it ... silly bartender. Anyway, this was my first foray into white beers back in the day, and man, has it been left in the dust. I mean, it’s decent and drinkable, but boring. There’s the requisite wheat and lemon citrus, but none of the spice. I guess cutting corners is what to expect from mass brewed beers.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 I would swear something changed in the taste and feel of this beer since its introduction. What seemed to be a mild imitation of a Belgian White now seems like a flat-tasting very average American light beer.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Wonderful, surprising beer. Beautiful golden cloudy color. Extremely smooth drinking, feels thicker than it really is at first. Try both with and without the traditional slice of orange. Great easy to find beer.

Shining cloudy gold with a solid white cover. Straightforward lemon and coriander nose does not feel too up front, rather well integrated in fact, so is the vanilla. Fairly malty in mouth, it remains quite sweet, but the balancing acidity has the sufficient force to avoid stickiness. A textbook example.

Had this on tap at the maryland renaissance faire. Little to no taste really. There were some hop charasteristics. I could definently tell that they had attempted to make a witbier, the palate was just too subdued for me to care. Really....don’t buy this. Don’t damn yourself to the purgatory between micro and macro.

For a beer from a major brewer and highly accessible, this is remarkably above-average; I was pleasantly surprised. This truly defines "light session" beer, the kind of thing one would go after to quench one’s thirst without an insult to one’s palate. At the corner supermarket with a pretty general selection, mostly of macros, this is in the far-and-away top three along with SNPA (a superior but not as much a session beer) and Sam Adams.

Pours a hazy yellowish color. Head disolves rather quickly. Mild Citrus and floral taste and aroma. This was my first Belgian white beer and while it’s not the best out there, It sparked in interest for me ito try many others in the style.

I have fallen in love with this beer. I just hope my girlfriend doesn’t find out. It leaves you with a sweet nectareen aftertaste. I wish I could drink this beer and only this beer for the rest of my life.

Of course its not the best out there. But as far as "mainstream" beers go this is my favorite. It’s easy to find and beats the pants of bud and miller and all that crap!
