On tap. Nice pure white head with some lacing and excellent spicy citrusy aroma. Coriander and curacao obvious and in just the right amount with nice yeasty tones. Very refreshing though I can do without the lemon next time. Finished clean. I’ll have this one again.

Yellowish white with small white head. Very little smell with a happy light beer taste. Smooth to the last drop.

Big, fluffy, white head. Pours light yellow, and cloudy. Smells great, like citrus and summer. Yummy!

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle 0,33. Light yellow, cloudy. A small white head that soon disappears. Aroma of citrus. Refreshing but not exciting.

screigh (667) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Pored a "white" color kind of like watery grapefuit juice. Big, fluffy, soapy looking head with some stickyness to the glass. Good aroma with a sort of sour citrus smell. Flavor seems to be on the sides of the tongue. It is kind of flowery and lemony at the same time. The finish ends on the back of the tongue with some spicyness that reminds me of a Christmas spice style.

AHouse (18) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Real lite and subtle flavor. Crisp and has a little fruity flavour, sweet to the taste but needs more kick. I could dink a pint of it but wouldn’t get a sixer.

Nice color and head, decent trickerey on the tongue, just a little bland, not bad on hot day.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Bottle. Hazy yellow body, frothy white head. Sweet of citrus and yeast. Flavors are largely orange and lemon, but wheat, yeast, and lots of orange zest balance it out quite well. Hard to call it overrated, as I’ve had few other Belgian whites, but the flavors were weaker than I remembered. Certainly fuller on tap.

NachlamSie (3279) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2010 bottle from Food City. This is a super cloudy, very light yellow brew with a massively foamy white head. The aroma is refreshing: lots of orange zest, coriander, and lemons. The palate is light and bubbly. Everything here is subtle, well balanced, and welcomed to my palate on a hot day like this. Lots of citrus is all over the place with lemons, limes and a bit of a spicy finish is apparent in the way of coriander or perhaps clove. The beer is light in the mouth without sacrificing complexity or flavor. Great hot weather beer. Commendable in its sophistication.
