UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 Nice, but it is a little bit light, for my taste, for being a white beer, although it is a good beer.

Cloudy yellow colour (reminds a lemonade), with nice white head. Very sweet, I think. Good aroma with citrus notes. It’s a very refreshing beer, excellent for summer time.

Wacher (129) - Århus C, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2005
Meget lys øl, en anelse uklar. Flot hvidt skum. Meget karakteristisk duft af appelsin. Den krydrede smag af koriander er gennemtrængende. Desuden citrusnoter og (naturligvis) gær. Rigtig god witbier!

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
Bottle. Poured cloudy yellow straw color with white head. Sugary, yeast, spice and coriander aroma. Taste of wheat malt, coriander, spice and cereal. Very nice wheat beer. Biere de couleur jaune paille trouble avec un bon collet blanc. Odeur sucre, levure, epices et coriandre. Au gout, au remarque tout de suite le gout de ble, ensuite la coriandre, les epices et les cereales. Tres bonne biere de ble

330ml brown bottle, tasted in Hoegaarden tumbler. Poured cloudy pale/lemon yellow. Nice creamy white head, effervescent body. Clove-like aromas, with some citrus and woody notes (sawdust). Sweet and orangy in the mouth, light yeast and wheat aftertaste.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
One of the first "good" beers I ever had. And while not as impressive as it once seemed, this is still abig step up from industrial lagers. Pours a hazy pale yellow colour with an orangey nose. The flavour seems a little weak but still an enjoyable mix of citrus and spice. Could use some yeastiness to round it out.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Poured a cloudy popcorn color with a nice fluffy head. As per instuctionsi I swirled and poured the remaining sediment from the bottom of the bottle into my glass. The aroma was strong with wheat malt, citrus notes and banana. The taste was big and clean. Wheat flavor was upfront with a subtle bitterness following close. Light citrus/lemon notes come next. The aftertaste was yeasty and sweet like tapioka. A very refreshing wit. Highly recomended.

AndrewGeoff (27) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2005
Cloudy, very pale straw-coloured beer with a good frothy white head. Very nice lacing and doesn’t overdo the carbonation. I was a bit worried to try this one after reading some of the descriptions since I normally don’t like overly spiced beers – (How many of you ratebeerians really go in the kitchen often enough to know what coriander smells like?) – but the citrus and spice isn’t overplayed at all. Very soft mouth feel and nice tangy aftertaste. Overall it certainly refreshes but it does lack enough character to really be one of the greats.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2005
Bottled. 750 ml. Cloudy, pale yellow colour. Huge frothy head. Lemony, coriander aroma, yeasty with something like lactic acid. Citric, spicy, slightly tart with, again, strong notes of coriander and lemon. A nice mouthfeel, goes down easily. But if this is, supposedly, the best this style has to offer, I don´t know what´s the point of it. The dominating aromas and flavours are added to the beer. Good hefeweizens have much more character than this and if you substract the artifcially added flavours from wit you are left with a yeasty, bland sub-par weizen.
