bottled on tap: this is your classic witbier and probably the most popular in the style. i love the look almost white yellow with a thin head, i also like it in the hoegaarden tumbler that it is appropriately served in. like a thin hefeweizen or weissebiere. but more watered down and liter. crisp and snappy. great for hot summer days. easy to drink. me likes..

Presume it was this that brought my former boss in contact w/ Pierre Celis. As if you care. But you wouldn't care about my rating either, would you? This was a real learning experience fro me way back when. Thems was the days before Celis was brewing in Austin. And now they are no longer. And this beer lives on. And I still praise Pierre.

Christian (11132) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Light, cloudy yellow beer with a very white head. Fruity, slightly smoked aroma, some spice, some lemon. Sweet and easy-to-drink with a hint of tartness.

Damn, I didn't read the instructions on the back of the bottle that state you should swish the last bit around before adding it to the glass. Pours a very hazy straw color with a very nice head and some lacing. Scent it typical Wit. Taste is as well; bananas and spices. Mouthfeel is very weak, though, and almost watery. Overall this is okay and nothing special.

Lovely Belgian Witbier. Almost colourless and very cloudy, but a very comprehensive body. The best wheat beer I have ever tasted.

Rare appearence but so caractersistic tasting, a has a great acid flavour but on the other hand has a sweet end if you drink it icy. Great beer, but not to drink it so often beacuse is easy to bore

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Bottle pours a pale, hazy yellow with a small head and some lace. The aroma is yeasty and spicy. The flavor is clovey, yeasty, sweet, and slightly hopped with a medium palate. Overall, it sort of leaves me wanting more flavor and body, but it is OK.

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2004 citrusy witbier aroma. yellow in color. i like it when beer looks like powdered lemonade with a frothy head. this beer seems perfect for what it is-- much more balanced than the victory whirlwind. very drinkable, subtle character. a great session beer.

Light golden colour and very cloudy. Aroma is spicy, and the taste is mainly orange/ citrus flavored. Very good on a warm day.
