UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Nice fruity wit with a nice citrus after taste. Yeast, citrus aroma. Good with a lemon or orange to excentuate the citrus tastes. Perfect after a long day of skiing!

Excellent domestic witbier. Fruity but not overwhelming. No bitter aftertaste. One of my favorite easy-to-find beers.

Fragrant floral aromas with a citrus nose. Orange to amber in color with a thin white head. Some lacing, thin. Hoppy flavor with citrus, orange peel notes. Refreshing and fizzy palate.

Spices are up-front and obvious. Behind the spices is a hint of fruity yeast. The palate is somewhat lacking but overall this is an OK witbier.

Blue moon is one of my "easy to get" favorites. Its very smooth and citrusy. Although I always do drink it with a lemon slice.

Pretty decent witbier. The bartender scraped all the head off and filled it all the way. Hazy orange, tones of spiciness, smooth, very citrusy (caused by lemon in the glass?), and good hop flavor. I like it. And itís from Coors!

Nice citrusy aroma very little to no malt or hops. Golden yellow with thin white head. Nice mouthfeel, clean citrusy flavors not much depth. A bit artificial tasting with a clean short finish. Overall, nice entry-level wit selection but the color is not really suitable for style.

Hazy, pale orangish color...decent white head.
Nose is most impressive, buzzing with citrus, and spice, almost perfumey, a delightful aroma, just right for a witbier.
Served with lemon, in this case, which I had to manually extrude from the pint glass's brim. Would have gone better with the fish dinner this accompanied.
At the fore, really tasty, full with fruit, big blast of hops, but somehow a touch sour, left me puzzled and dissatisfied. Produced a pucker on the palate, a tightness on the tongue.
Flavor sags some in the middle, too. It acts just like a witbier at the beginning, then quits halfway through, and I'm saddened by the paucity of body and texture...doesn't fail all the way, though, there's still some remnants of that spicey, fruity flavor, but they're too, too faint. Little finish, and once done, I'd forgotten what had happpened.
Followed this with a pint of Bell's Oberon, which bore none of those failings.
I can only be glad of the popularity of this particular beer, for at least these folks are trying something different. It's a pity, though, that so many think that they're actually drinking a product of Belgium, and I hope they move on to better beers.
