Citrus aroma. I tasted a ginger-like bite in the finish. Nice flavors overall, but too watery compared to some of the other domestic wheat beers.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2008 Wheaty, citrus, and yeast in the aroma. Cloudy light golden color with small head. Medium carbonation with watery body. Somewhat wheaty in taste, bit o’ citrus. Mild bitter after. Not a bad beer, refreshing but a little weak.
For a quick quaff, it’s a dependable drink, but for any type of complexity as a Belgian Wit ... nah. My original rating was by in ’02. Now that this beer is so mainstream and ’imported’ from Canada, the profile is less complex than originally presented.

A sweet beer. Not bad. Reminds me of Sweet-Tarts

Wonderfull summer brew with a distinct taste and very aeromatic aftertaste. Hopsy with a lot of head. Very smooth finish.

I’ve always liked this beer, especially in the summer, nice looking head, nice hoppy taste. with hints of cariander and orange. a great beer to just hang out and drink on a hot summer day. Re-rate still think this a pretty good beer, but had to adjust my rating, as I became more familar with the style

a bit on the sweeter side, some trace of citrus, a distinct character with respect to taste. Relatively smooth. Not real good, but very inoffensive...

I very much like this beer however it IS a tad on the sweet side. Not quite as bad as honey-lager, but the sweetness could be toned down a little. This is basically Michelob Hefeweizen with slightly less hops and blueberry syrup added, just to give you a rough idea. Some people may not like it, but I really like this stuff!

I don’t really like Belgian whites, but this isn’t too bad. Nice sweet flavor with a decent wheat taste. I could drink this again

This beer has the right clousy appearance and a subtle spice taste. There is nothing special about it, but for a mass produced faux micro, its not bad. In Denver it was served in several places with an orange slice, which is the first time I saw that. It wasn’t bad that way, but I think a lemon slice is more traditional.
