Pailhead (6377) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2004
On tap: Light citrus aroma. Cloudy orangish yellow with a small white head. Light citrus lemon and lightly malty flavor. Rather weak and watered down. Very little bitterness. Not much aftertaste.

This is my favorite beer as of now. But I am a sheltered lad. I like the flavor compared to most bitter and cheap beers that I’m familar with.

beerandsteak (12) - Syracuse, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Tap, bottle. It’s alright, but there are so many other beers that take this one. ’Belgian’ and Coors need no association. A good gateway beer for the ’discerning’ Bud drinker though.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Tap. Interesting appearance, light yellow with lots of cloudy white sediment, light citrus sweet aroma. A bit watery with citrus and spice very tame, but quite drinkable with a very clean finish.

jde123 (773) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Very fruity aroma and flavor on this witbier, but not enough to make it stand out from others. Definately not the best in this category.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2004
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.

BeerandBlues2 (11973) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 9, 2004
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.
