This is a good Belgian White with a clear yellow color and a large white head. The nose is very lemon-esque and the taste is lemon-pie sweet and citrus bitter. There’s also an acidic wheatiness and a lot of carbonation. The mouthfeel is thin and, sadly, the bitterness is neither strong nor complex, but then again that wouldn’t be the goal with this style. It is probably the best of the popular examples of this style.

Ron (3419) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Received a bottle of this from my friend JB. Poured a large thick white head. Aroma of citrus and yeast. Slightly sour. It was alright but I was hoping for more.

An excellent summer beer I enjoyed frequently in the Netherlands this past year. Yeasty aromas and a thick head (when properly poured) combine with a taste evocative of a warm afternoon in the low countries.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2005
Grey and cloudy with a thin, scummy head, this beer really doesn’t appeal visually. The aroma was interesting, with yeast and spices. Flavour was citrus sour and a bit watery. I wanted more sweetness and bitterness. I felt there was too much carbonation.

Light yellow, cloudy, with nice thick white head. Spicy citrus aroma. Taste of coriander and pommerade. A great beer for a hot summers day.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Light in color. Cloudy. Citrus tatse . A good summer beer. I bit sweet but not overly so.

IndianaRed (3483) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Botle pours a very light cloudy white/yellow witha midium bright white head. Thick resiliant lacing. Aroma is light and spicy. I notice the Belgiun yeasty notes and just a bit of the advertised coriander. Flavor is very mild and pale. Fairly sweet and papery. Lively carbonation and a moderate feel in general. Skunk nailed it. "Sessionable"

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2005
This beer pours an almost clear to pearlish white color with a hint of light yellow color. Small white head, quickly dissipating with a small degree of lacing and noticeable floaties suspended in the beer. Aroma is light with yeasts, hay, barnyard and orange in the nose. Flavor-wise we’re looking at a very light bodied beer. Sessionable, hay and grass with a sweet mid-sip and an orangey finish. Noticeable carbonation mid-sip but generally mild toward the finish. Mildly sticky as it warms. Dry slithgly cardboardy sweet finish. Something acetic and sour about the finish that Im just not quite digging.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Pale beige and cloudy with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus and wheat. Taste is yeasty and bready with orange peel and coriander making things quite interesting. Body is light and carbonation is high. Excellent witbier.
