Very sweet and citrus flavored. Easy drinking and refreshing. Good beer for a hot summer afternoon. Definitely a good one for the ladies.

The beer has a citrus aftertaste, but overall i was pleased with it. However, I think it will only be made for a limited time.

Great citrus aroma. Excellent flavor. This is great beer during a barbque, and it comes from Boulevard in KC, the home of BBQ. I wish they'd make this year round.

It took me two years to love this beer... as I *hated* it the first time I tried it...yet something kept drawing me back... this is the pinnacle of summer refreshment - light, crisp and the anise/corriander is addictive - after you start to like it. If you dont like it... keep at it every once in a while when its hot outside and you have some shade.

This is a fantastic summer brew! It has a really nice citrusy aroma and flavor backed up with a hint of coriander spice followed up with an amazingly yeasty aftertaste. This is my overall favorite beer from boulevard and one I will be drinking for years to come.

One of my all-time favorite everyday beers. Yes, Zon is nothing too special. It won't change the world. But it's easy to find in Norman and always leaves me refreshed. The aroma is slighly spicy and cirtusy - very nice. The color is even better, a lovely hazy yellow that is unique. The flavor is the best - well balanced and not overbearing with a spicy citrus feel. I don't usually like my beers to hit me in the face, and Zon goes down nice and easy. Hoegaarden may be the champ of the Belgian-made witbiers, but Zon is certainly at the top of the American versions.

Like Hoegaarden, but with this one I don't have to worry about how long it has sat on the shelf. Best after mowing the lawn.

Light orange yellow hazy beer. Eminently yeasty in aroma and flavors. Very smooth. Decent wit.

I was fortunate enough to go on the Boulevard brewery tour while I was in KC recently. The tour was not very informative as far as beer tours go, but the tasting at the end was excellent and turned me onto several beers that I had not heard of. I bought a 6 pack of this beer after the tour and took it home. I served it in a pint glass. There are a few beers that I say you can just smell forever. And people comment to me sometimes how long i smell some beers before I taste them, this was one of them. The beer was light in color and cloudy. The smell was amazing, a mixture of yeast and the sweet ether smell associated with some belgian styles. It went down smooth and had very little after taste. This beer was excellent. Wit is not my favorite style, but there was no citrus aftertaste sometime associated with some Wit beers. It was great. Serving type: bottle
