Lovely beer, the pinnicle of the style. Nice orange bitter and coriander marriage of flavours.

Large white head, body cloudy. It smells like apples and banana. Great beer overall.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Pale yellow body with a good amount of creamy white head. Wheaty lemon aroma. More lemony wheat in taste, with a grassy finish. Flavor is good, but too light.

DocLock (7919) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Pours very turbid pale yellow/off white with a behemoth head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, chardonnay, and hops. Tastes very smooth, with citrus, Niagara white wine, hops, and yeast at the finish.

Had on tap in The Cellar, St.Andrews, Scotland. Strong Wheat. Worth having a couple to discern taste.

12 oz bottle at Steve’s. Benchmark Witbeer Very refreshing on a sunny summer afternoon, but the style is just too light for me. .

jgentgesdo (673) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Cloudy, pale lemon color in glass, very inviting, with a dense white head that resolves without lace. Citrus and a suprising pine note in the aroma, plus mild yeastiness. Flavor is citrus, pine, apricot, yeast (in that order on the tongue), with apricot at the end and a very faint licorice aftertaste. Strong carbonation, hops character is almost nonexistent. Overall my favorite everyday drinker.

I could never get into this one. Looks pretty in the tumbler. Like lemonade with lots of backwash. Smells like chemical cleaner, but not in a bad way. Flavors are lemony, fizzy and transparent, very bland and transparent. Not the best Wit. Man back in the day the Celis White was the king of the land, much better than this one. Now they both suck. grat

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2004 Pours a light orange/tan with a fizzy head. Aroma is mild but citrusy. Flavor is citrusy, wheaty, with a bit of spice, and some bubblegum as it warms. A very refreshing beer, I can't wait to lay out on the beach with a six pack of this. This is the kind of beer that should be in corona commercials.

Great example of a witbier. Very smooth and citrusy. Goes down easy and extremely good to drink when it is really cold. Light colored. Thirst quenching.
