Nice opaque yellow with bright white head. Light mouthfeel makes this refreshing in the proper climate. Not as over-the-top spicy as some domestic wit examples. Like the description says: Well calibrated sweet and sour (well, spiciness of orange peel and coriander).

Beautifully cloudy, pale yellow. Smells yeasty, and of bananas and vanilla. Tastes of cloves, honey, bananas and vanilla. Sweet and peppery with notes of coriander, with subtle spiciness Iíll attribute to cloves. Effervescent. Creamy, milky finish. Great beer.

I swore off Belgian whites after trying Blue Moon years ago. Finally tried Blue Moon again and loved it. Wanted to try the real deal. Personally I like Blue Moon better but this is starting to grow on me. Color is a cloudy yellow, much lighter as mentioned before then Blue Moon. Aroma of yeast and wheat. No lacing and a decent diminishing head. I personally think there is too much coriander taste to it. Itís what hits you first and then as it passes along your tongue you finally get the citrus taste that Blue Moon gives you right away. Itís not a bad beer but I personally like Blue Moon better as itís tastier.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 Bottle. My favourite beer. Pours a pale, cloudy yellow colour. Hints of orange and spice are found in the aroma. The flavour is delicious with distinctive citrus and spice elements and a beautiful light bitterness. Reward yourself and try this beer.

Draft ! I had this after the blue moon white(BMW) A pale yellow milky beer it was lighter than BMW the white head was moussy with a few choice peaks. The aroma was spices vanilla,nutmeg and some faint citrus.It tasted yeasty and wheaty the citrus is subdued but the coriander spiciness blends well.Some sweetness but its thin body and lively carbonation rounded all the edges.Very Drinkable and better than BMW but it was twice the price.
