UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Oh my god...this is what it’s all about. Hard to express how unbelievably easily this beer goes down. Little to no aftertase...period. Cloudy body because of its unfiltered state adds to the intrigue. They say, per capita, Belgium is the world’s most unique and varied producer...with a beer like this, it’s not hard to see why. Do try this one.

Hazey yellow colour with a cotton white head. Yeast aroma with hints of orange and lemon. Taste is citrus’y and well blended into a smooth,un-sour, feeling. Sweet with a faint barley taste. very smooth and relaxing.

The classic wit. Orange and lemony aroma with hints of yeast smells. Pours out a pale yellow with a huge white head that lasts. Slightest sourness balances the sweet orangey flavors. A great summer quaffer.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - FEB 12, 2005
A fellow rate beerean gave me this beer in Mexico, and it became one of my favorite beers ever since. Nice yellow/cloudy appearance with a creamy head. Sweet and citric at just the right balance. If you have not tried it, please do so!

Not a bad white beer. Hints of citrus ride out the mouthful. Very drinkable.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Pours a very cloudy yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is of fruit, namely oranges and lemons. Sweet flavor that is highlighted by the aforementioned fruit. A favorite during warm weather months.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2005 One of the world’s great beers. Seeing this slowly becoming more available in Australia as demand grows shows there’s hope for us yet. Perhaps some of us will live long enough to see the State of Origin sponsored by this, rather then the usual carbonated swill. It poured a cloudy unfiltered yellow with a prodigous lacing head. The rich yeasty nose promises citrus courtesy of the orange peel but I have never been able to pick the coriander. The medium-bodied palate feels full and creamy on the tongue. There are hints of orange in the tangy body, alongside the expected wheat characters. Effortless drinking. (Bottle)

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - FEB 7, 2005
12oz bottle. 51°. NB worthy glass. Pours hazy yellow with a white head which started at about 3/4 inch and died down after a minute or so. Smells wheaty with a touch of citrus. Taste is a typical wheat beer with some spice and lemony citrus. Nice "full" mouthfeel. The finish is light with some residual wheat flavor and a touch of tangy spice. A good wheat beer, but the flavors seemed muted.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 6, 2005
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.
