Bottled. Hazy golden with a huge, white head. Yes, it smells and tastes like a weissbier and it's dry and rather flat.

Very pale yellow, the color of pear. Light head, that subsides quickly, yet leaves a fine silky lacing on the glass. Initial taste is of wheat which belnds smoothly into the fruity finish of orange peel, pear, and mild hops. Quite smooth and interesting, I like this beer. Wish I could have a nice portion of sea bass, and pasta to accompany.

This is a great lawnmower beer with a nice balance of citrus and yeast flavor. Very good example of the style that is really good with shellfish.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Might I start off by saying I'm not a huge fan of Witbiers. Appearance is strange, very light almost like dirty water. A nice lemon and bread nose. Flavor is clean and refreshing with some lemon, apricots, bananas, and grapefruit. Palate is slightly dry and a little thin. This is a pretty good beer.

Draught at the Beer Sellar in Nashville. Pale yellow pour wiht a decent head. A very good Belgian White. Great aroma and taste. Some fruit in the taste. Very nice beer to have.

One of the best beers you´ll ever get your hands on. Great taste, appearance, aroma, you´ll want another one.

Nice plain White beer. But not many special characteristics. Probably a good beer to start with for beer newcomers.

Excuse my language but this is a shit-hot little beer. Tried it on tap in the UK last year and was worth every pence I paid for it. I bought another and another and another...you get the picture. Smooth, yet retains its flavour until the last moutful. Very citrusy with lovely head retention. If it weren't so damn expensive at my local bottlo I'd drink this stuff all the time.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 I'm not going to say I was disappointed with this beer because it is a great beer, but I do wish I tried it before reading other reviews so I didn't have such high expectations. It goes down easy with a great aftertaste. Nice big white head with a full yellow body. Try it before you read too many gracious reviews.

A front runner for the best Belgian Wit out there. Strong coriander and breadiness in nose. Tangy and chalky at the same time. The pale yellow body is topped by a huge rocky white head. Finishes dry and definitely leaves you wanting more.
