Some nice flavour present, just not enough of it to satisfy. It is a good thirst quencher, but not an overly impressive beer. Nice cloudy pour.

It’s cloudy, has a distinct citrus flavor. The flavor is a little watery, but it’s not awful.

Nice cloudy beer. Good orange/coriander flavors without overpowering the taste. I like it. Is it true to Belgian Wit, most likely a little light on everything for that, but a good beer nonetheless.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) rangey golden, hazy with a bubbly head - actually quite a noisy head... Giant yeast sediment. Loads of fruit in the aroma, and loads of coriander. Classic Belgian White. Owned by Coors?? Do they understand the term Belgian White? Nice effort though.

Very cloudy, deep gold color with a full head. It was served with some orange slices which was new and kind of exciting. I couldn’t tell if the aroma/ flavor of the beer was citrusy or if that was a byproduct of the oranges. All in all a pretty tastey beer. My first Belgian White.

Draft, Joe’s Bar and Grill, Dedham, MA: finally got around to rating this beer. Poured a deep cloudy yellow with adequate white head. Aroma is of light banana, citrus, and yeast. A liittle grainy in the flavor. Mostly light coriander and banana with touches of citrus. Mostly decent flavor. Easy drinking.

On this particular occasion I had this beer out of the bottle and having had it on tap I was quite dissapointed. If given a choice for trying this beer for the first time definately go with draft. The aroma and flavour is significantly better.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 Breakfast anyone? Call me crazy, but this beer tastes exactly like waffles, topped with fresh bananas and oranges. Light, but not in a bad way, this beer is easy to drink, best enjoyed in good company after a good meal.
