Had this on tap. Poured a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Standard light witbier aroma, but light and watery on flavor and palate. Was able to pull out some citrus and ginger. Not a bad witbier, but nothing special.

The taste is rather interesting, spicy is a way to describe it. The first one is alright, however after 1 or 2 that was enough of that.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 On draught. Pours yellow and cloudy, almost opaque with no real noticeable head. Smells lightly of oranges, coriander and bananas. Taste is watery with some coriander notes and a processed finish.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Smells like a witbier, looks like a witbier, but doesnt really taste like a witbier. Dont get me wrong, its a good cheap session beer, but it is completely forgettable. Not much to write about. Like I said, a good presentation for the most part, but lackluster taste. Pretty light and watery, like Hoegaarden.

A good summer beer when there is no corona about. A little too light for me to drink regularly.
