Draft: A little dark for a Belg. Wit style, but it has a nice lasting white head. Pleasant orange citrus aroma with hints of ginger; wheat malt and lightly sour aroma. I don't really pick up on any coriander, then again I'm in a bar! Slightly tart, yeasty, and wheat malt; lightly citrusy and acidic. Waitress comes by with a fantastic smelling rose floral perfume. Very nice, but not when rating a beer! Spicy flavor, but not clovey and I can't quite place it at this time. There is a little bit of a biting acidity, but oddly smooth mouthfeel and lighter body. Carbonation is on the high side. Much better on draft than from a bottle, and this is a pretty decent versin from an American brewery.

Tap. Consumed on the ski sloped of Mt. Heavenly, in the middle of a day of ripping up my knees. Nicely done; it lives up to its title of "Best of the beasts". Murky-yellow, lightly spicy. Not complex but crisp, fruity, easy, good. Great for a macro.

This was a very pleasant tasting beer. Smooth, complex flavors not bitter or sour and a smooth clean finish. I will be drinking this again & again. Definetly a must try!

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Hazy yellow-orange with a thin head. An aroma of annis? Lightly bittered by smooth, somewhat orange-rind tinged. Hardly "Belgian".

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Not much going on here. Thin and watery with no direction. I don't see how this is a Belgian White. It's a good thing Blue Moons don't occur very often.

Very nice beer with a fruit complex. No bitterness noted, with very little aftertaste.

Slightly hazy straw body, small white head recedes quickly, citrus/coriander nose. Very light flavor.

With a lemon wedge it's a great beer, with an orange slice it's beyond compare. I discovered this one on special at a bar in Nashville, TN. Now that I live in Cincy, I'm glad it knows no boundries. It's also the first beer that my father and I agree on.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Orange cloudy pour, a nice white head, but it really didn't last as long as it should have. Nice aroma of spices, orange, and yeast. Lemon and orange taste with a sweetness at the end, becoming dry. An easy to drink beer. Perhaps not a textbook sample, but a good introduction to the style because it drinks so easily if the sweetness doesn't bother you.

Draught, at Durgin Park, Boston, MA.</br> Wheat beer severed with a slice of lemon. Moderately flavoured to appeal to more people than would a full blown wheat beer. Perhaps that’s giving them more credit then they deserve. The beer finishes with a peculiar sweet finish.
