What a pleasure! Light goldenrod color, little bubbles everywhere. Actually drank it with food and it held up nicely. Great citrus flavor and the yeast is right there as well. For a big brewer, this is very nice. Drinking this is like having a party in your mouth and everyone is invited.

Creamy head with slightly larger bubbles. Beautiful hazy, golden color. Quite a bit of carbonation. A little bit of sediment. Light, yeasty aroma. It makes my mouth start to water. Soft mouthfeel. A little yeasty and light-bodied. I think this is something I might keep stocked in my fridge. Might be tasty with a slice of something citrus.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2004 Nice. I think I prefer Hacker-Pschorr but this is quite good as well. Yellow and cloudy with small particles. First impression was flowery. Somewhat acidic.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2003 Bottle - Long-lasting white head. Citris aroma. Smooth with a slight lemon coriander taste. Great Witbier. It tastes great with most food and is my favorite work day lunch Beer.

A true Belgium wheat beer with a ticklish hint of coriander and curacao. My current treat beer, although you need a pub that has clean pipes or a fresh batch if sampling from the bottle.

I´m not a fan of the Belgian White style so my rating can´t be very high. Too sour compared to the German Wheatbeers.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2003
I found this beer to be rather weak. Light golden color with a stark white head. Light citris aroma. Flavor was very subdued but flowery just the same. Nothing I would look for again.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2003
Draught at Vlissinghe, Brugge. Plenty of flavour still from the trendsetting Whitbeer. The corianer, citrus is a little overwhelming for m taste but nevertheless a decent afternoon sampler

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2003 For me, this has always set the standard for the style. Wonderful in pretty much every respect. Great macrobrew.

Very pale, crisp white head. Gleaming yellow in color. Smooth, citrusy, with a nice kick of carbonation.
