Very grapefruit aroma. Pale yellow/white color, white head, good lace. Few flavors, little grapefruit, very thin. Short finish. Bad example of a Belgian white: should be fuller, more flavors.

Bottle conditioned. Very pale hazy lemon with good head and condition. Mix of spicy lemon and corriander aromas that are muted in the mouth by a refreshing tartness. Slightly sweet finish with a hint of bitter lemon dryness lingering.

very cloudy and yellow, bleach white head. Tons of orange, very juicy. Spice is mild but that keeps it more refreshing. Key lime pipe aroma. Doesnít really stand out but an excellent wit non the less. Thank you Kaya.

I tried this on draft. It has a yellow unclear color with a light head - as is typical for belgian witbeers. The aroma is fruity and slightly sour also like most witbeers. The flavor is a flat wheat flavor with notes of fruit.

For me, this was a bit of an underwhelming wit beer. It was extremely light, almost champagne sprizy, lightly spiced -but still noticeably spiced, definitely low on th citrus notes. Stronger on the wheat flavours and less on spices and bitter orange. Nufield said it about right. I still drank this all night in La Tzoumaz in Switzerland and Iíd gladly do it all over again.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2004 seems to have got worse lately. only 30% wheat in the ingredients and some numbers... Very thin, fizzy, sharp and acidic, zero aroma, slightly phenolic and nutmeggy, with an aftertaste of dry turmeric. a heap of crap.

This beer rocks.
Itís been a long time since Iíve tried this beer, so I wonít mislead you with specific comments regarding characteristics that I simply canít remember. However, this is just a very, very good Wit. If you like other wits that I have rated highly, you will love this one.

Fun color! Hazy, pale yellow, thin white head--looks like a hazy lemon juice. Wheat aroma, less pronounced than the flavor. Slightly watery, mild finish, though hints of spice and the slightest citric notes. (on tap, Belgo, Kingsway, London)

This is much blander tha i remeber it, no real standout flavours, a hint of coriander spice and slightly lemony, apart from this, not much else, but nice and refreshing standard wit.
