Bottle. Cardboard corriander nose. Has the usual notes of suntan lotion, soap, citrus, acid, and wheat. I don’t dig wit beers, and this is a bad wit beer. ’Nuff said.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Always comes with a slice of orange. So smells like orange go figure. Slightly sweet, not bitter, finishes smooth. First time I tried it a gf got it i took a sip not bad.

Poured a glowing orange/straw haze, light passes easily through it. Smell is a smooth scent of lemon and some clove hints. Wheat is dominant with a little sweetness and clove is slight. The wheat notes did linger on and on. The finish was lemony and the aftertaste was yeasty. It went down quite fast. For a macro it’s not bad, it’s a good substitute for a pilsner on a hot day. My bartender suggested adding a shot of orange juice to the pint and make it a nice shandy. Hmm...I’ll let you know.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 (bottle) A commonly-available beer that I put off drinking simply because of its availability - reasoning that something so widely accepted must be bland and boring. I was quite wrong (see Newcastle for another example of my flawed logic). This is a very nice beer that went down very easily. I think I could drink it all night, and that’s not something I could say about most Belgians.

this was decent. couldy yellow color, poured from the tap like a hefe. thick white head, but it didn’t stay around long. served with lemon. taste was very citrusy and fruity with wheat background. slight spice. medium body and feel. not great, not bad.

Fruity and spicy fruity. Smokey amber color. Great beer. White head, one of the better beers I have had, but I still prefer Delerium Belgian Ale.

Fine sample of a Belgian White. While not as good as an overseas witbier, the flavor is very distinct. I like the unfiltered beers, as most home brewers do. I do not add the orange, as I just enjoy it straight. Good beer!

Good aroma and taste. Nice wheaty appearance, good aroma, Pours a beautiful orange amber color. Served with a twist of orange really sets this beer off. Refreshing carbonation. Good beer!

Mass produced beer that is a welcome change from all the bitter beers Ive been drinking tonight. This beer is traditionally served with oranges which I dont particularly car for bit nonetheless gives it an exotic flare. The taste rings out with all sorts of citrus fruits from orange, lemon, lime, to passion fruit and kiwi. Also the combination of the citrus flavors combined with the wheaty nature of this beer makes it unique and a commonly asked for beer in many pubs. Nice appearance and nature so give it a go.
