Corriander, orange peel and yeasty aromas very good and fresh aromas, this beer isn't that old. Pale yellow and cloudy as it should be. Thick head and very effervesent, the haed lasted a long time. Yeasty and bread like flavors with a good orange flavor. The corriander flavor was mild at first but got stronger as I drank more. An excellent example of a witbeer, as it should be, it's the original.

Very hazy citron yellow with small white head and some carbonation. Aroma is yeast and wheat and some crisp citron fruit. Very fresh aroma indeed. Taste is something similar to German weizen but not so sweet, extremely freshing beer. I have to try this tapped, which I haven't found for a long time.

bakechad (3) - USA - MAR 2, 2004 does not count
Very cloudy, not much to look at. The flavor and aroma make up for the apperance. At first taste it is very refreshing. The after taste was strong and spicy. Lots of coriander and orange flavor. Great beer for everyday drinking.

skaughty (645) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Re-rate: Pours like a thin lemonade, with all the cloudiness and bits. Aroma forewarns a strong citrus bite. Head was a short stack of quickly disappearing bubbles. Taste was both tangy and spicy with a dry finish.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Cloudy pale yellow with a nice collapsing foamy head. The aroma is lemon, pepper, corainder, and wheat. The flavor has an assertive spiciness up front that consists of pepper and coriander, this then transitions into a sweet orange/lemon flavor, finally a tiny bit of sourness and bitterness develops just about time of the swallow. The body is medium-light the finish has sone slight astringency. Overall a very nice a drinkable witbier.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Lets face it, this beer is not attractive, the cloudiness makes it look murky. The rest of it though is top stuff. The aroma is of vanilla ice cream. The beer is supremly mellow with hints of spice. Very drinkable and refreshing. Much better to drink as a quencher than lagers. Score 3.7
Subsequent rating scored 3.6 Score unaltered

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Greenish yellow beer with an apropriate amount of foam for something that's at least half made of wheat. Green apple crispness immediately softens and turns to a pear flavor, then sttling on coriander and oranges. Finishes dry. Great wit I have here....(!)

This naturally fermented, cloudy white beer has a great, light taste that belies its colour. Spanner.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - FEB 19, 2004
aromas of coriander orange yeast fresh cooked bread. the head was substantial the slowly fades to a thin layer on the surface. The color is a hazy straw. The flavor is creamy, orange with a slight coriander pepperiness. A little bit of wheat. It becomes thin and watery toward the end. There are better blanche bieres, although this beer is a good drinking beer and you can put away dozens.
