UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 I have had all three verisons of this beer and the best was the texas one. It tasted like cascade was the hop in the texas verison but I know it wasn’t. A little thin but good.Page 112 of Michael Jacksons Great Beer Guide and only 190 out 500 Classic Brews to go.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Yellow colour, rather cloudy, with rocky white head. Fruity nose with banana, vanilla and ... custard? Fruity taste with the same notes of banana, vanilla and custard mingling with citrus (mandarin, lemon) and notes of Wrigleys Juicy Fruit. Rather sweet, more fruity than spicy. Easy to drink, but actually quite tasty. Very summery (although this is february and the snow is falling down). On the philosophic side: a begian beer style brewed in Belgium for an American brewery. That would make this a Belgian American Belgian white?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2007 Pale, clearish haze with a thin creamy head. Large, visible pip-like pieces of sediment. Pineapple sweetness and a sour tang of citrussy lemon. A potent dose of coriander followed by some lovely biscuity notes long after the swallow. Very fruity and very wheaty. A refreshingly tangy Wit. (Re-rate) A dusting of clove. Bittersweet, slightly sickly Witbier sodden with estery banana fruitiness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From 2002. I was excited to find this after being introduced to this beer in Texas during college. My disappointment in this was great. The aroma and flavor were dominated by a level of diacteyl rarely encountered in beer, commercial or homebrew. The extreme butterscotch aroma and flavor overpowered the obvious nice formulation of ingredients underneath. I hope this was a batch issue and not a consistency in the Belgian production of this once-great beer.

Draught. Summer, lemon and soap in the aroma, but not in a bad way. A bit more yellow than Hoegarden. Taste of flowers, with a very long finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy blond color. A plain wheat, as usual for Belgians it’s quite good, most of all maltier, and the malt is crispy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy yellow. Very nice fruity aroma, citrus and a bit coriander.
Very wheaty, grainy taste. Much citrus in the flavor too. Overall a very nice white, but it could use a little less citrus.
