Pours extremely pale color, murky white. This is a good measuring stick for comparing witbiers. Not any flaws in this beer but nothing about it really stands out either. Aroma is of citrus and vanilla. Flavor and mouthfeel are dry like champagne. Nice and easy to drink.

Belly Full O Beer (57) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2004
Love the subtle tastes that exist under this beer. The orange really makes it quite unique. This is the best beer that Iíve found for people who donít like beer. Itís a great tasting beer that doesnít taste "like beer". It is unfortunate that so many people think that all beer tastes the same. This is a great beer to taech them otherwise. Only off putting thing is the cloudy look to it, but thatís where the flavour comes from so ya gotta live with it.

vanvenlo (1386) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 17 Aug 2004 Aroma: Earthy, banana & apple hop complexity. Appear: Too grey, cloudy light yellow, you can?t get much lighter colour. low retention, some suds lacing. Flovour: Bubblegum, bannana with some spice. Palate: Watery but too fizzy.

Perfect example of the style. I have tried, unsuccessfully, to clone this beer but cannot attain the subtle nuances and depth of this beer. I imagine this beer gets lower marks from other raters because of its mass market availability. If it were homebrewed in some garage and bottled by the brewers daughter I bet it would be much more received. What a shame, this beer is perfect.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2004
The precious drink of one of my Tory friends in Britain. Light tasting, best with an infused lemon, some of the whitest beer Iíve seen for this style. Overall, very enjoyable, though slightly lacking the a certain bite or dimension you would desire. Would like to have it in a normal pint glass though; the special octo-style(?) Hoegaarden glass is rather clumsy.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 I referenced Hoegaarden in another review and realized I hadnít reviewed it yet. I hope it can forgive me because I love it. Its just so refreshing and even looks like nice glass of lemonade. But tastes totally unlike lemons and totally like goodness.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 Soapy Gold pour with a brilliant frothy head and an original and distinctive light spice taste. One of the finest widely distributed witbiers I have ever had.
