Very light, a little too thin for my liking. The flavour that is there is nice but there’s not nearly enough of it.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 this beer is very refreshing. it is really light in body, but its not light on taste. the flavour is definitely not lacking, but its not too forceful which allows it to go down smooth. i had it served to me in a giant Hoegaarden pint glass which is really heavy and looks awesome. i noticed that the head stuck around for longer than most beers. Awesome brew.

alexicon (1) - brighton, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2004 does not count
with a twist of freshly squeezed lime, this is definately one of the most refreshing beers. very light and fruity flavour, very smooth taste.

Don’t forget this one for that crisp refreshing summer cold drink. An upscale after a sweat quick one - or two :-) - that you’ll find cloudy, pale moon yellow, a touch spiced, white headed and satifying.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2004
A huge frothy head over a pale hazy yellow beer. Nice carbonation retains a (thin) head throughout. Nice aroma of spice and citrus. Initial tang of bitter and tart followed by the spiciness of coriander. Dry and refreshing, very quenching. Defines style.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2004
Pale gold, very unclear, white creamy head. Good carbonation. Fresh flavour with citrus, yeast and wheat. Some underlying spicyness (coriander, and a hint of pebber?). A smooth palate. Overall a very good wit beer (prototypic).

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2004
The flavoring is very familiar to the Sterkens White I had last christmas. Spicy, carbonated flavoring. Better than Sterkens White. Looks make it resemble a very thin wheat beer. Not Bad.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2004
Bottle- Pours a paly yellow body, with a fluffy white head. Aromas are floral, fruity, and somewhat spicy. Taste is citrus with a slight hoppy edge and a mild spice flavour. Leaves a little bit of a bite in the throat, making this beer even more interesting.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 A very fine brew. Pours a deep gold with a nice white head. Taste is slightly spicy, sweet and malty. A very nice brew even though Belgian Whites aren’t really my thing.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Hazy pale straw body, creamy white head that doesn’t quit. Dusty grain aroma with orange citrus notes. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Gentle pepper, orange, and grain in the flavor. Finishes with sort of a diluted hop bitterness.
