Light yellow colour with big head. Nice smell with notes of coriander. Taste citrus. In fact not the right time for white beer, but still a good experience.

Wolfenstein (96) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Bottle: Poured a cloudy light yellow. Samll head evaporated quickly. Zesty. This beer tastes great. Very light but not lacking in flavor. Reminds me of Duvel, sans the alcohol.

For a weisse beer, itís acceptable. It is nothing to write home about, but if there is nothing better, this will fit the bill.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Re-rated Feb 2, 2008 Bottle. Poured very light and very cloudy with a white head. Pleasant fruity aroma. Sweet, refreshingly light body. My current favorite beer. 11/29/05 Original rating: 3.6 (aroma 6/10, appearance 3/5, flavor 7/10, palate 3/5, overall 17/20)

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Old favorite. When poured properly you get a large, lingering, frothy head over pale yellow ale. Great nose of yeast, citrus, and grass(?). Very refreshing, yet spicy aswell. Complex but still thrist quenching. Extra points for availability.

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2005
[Bottle 341 ml, served chilled, fresh, Blind tasting test with Mario DíEer] This was a Blind tasting test; I didnít know what I was drinking. No head. Very low carbonization. Odd color. Fade yellowish/citrus color reminded me of a glass of citrus juice. Taste was acidic and faint. I didnít really taste Curacao or coriander typical to witbier. Unimpressed. I will have to try it again, but for now, I have to disagree with the mass.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Grapefruit color, almost no visible head. Very sweet smell that has some spice accent. Wheat cottony taste that while good isnít my flavor. Almost a tea like ending.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2005
This beer poured a cloudy light yellow with a few tiny yeast sea monkeys and a moderate short-lasting off-white head. Aromas included orange peel, coriander, grain. The carbonation is lively and the body is light and refreshing. The flavor is smooth, barely bitter with an average-length lightly spicy finish. Nice and drinkable.
