this was the first beer I really liked... citrusy flavor adds a nice touch... light crisp, clean beer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2005
12 oz bottle pours cloudy the palest golden I’ve ever seen.. Almost white with a fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus, orange and a touch of lemon. Flavor is yeast, orange, a little corriander. The palate is quite light and carbonated. Refreshing and crisp to drink. A great summer beer..

Very pale yellow, a little cloudy, and a thick white head. Yeast and bananas in the palate, citrus in the nose. A nice balance. Good but not great.

buddahmind (39) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 25, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Nice flavors and freshness. Great summer refresher. Looked a bit like a urine sample injected with champagne. Carbonation gave it an ever growing head. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and wanted another but only bought one to sample. Stupid. Maybe the most refreshing beer I’ve ever had.

This beer is very citrusy. It has a very nice color, and a nice head, but the head goes quickly. It is usually with a lemon. But it gets too sour and bitter for me. The body is thicker than most citrusy beers. But it spreads good on the palate. The beer is very refreshing when served very cold.

Had on tap in Belgium. I love this beer! Smooth flavor and nice finish. Hop bitterness is about right for a white. Very refreshing. If it were available at my local market I would definitely get some.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Pours cloudy pale yellow with medium white foamy head that fades quickly. Aroma is lively and teasing herbal Corriander, cloves, citrus orange/lemon zest. Effervescent tart and refreshing. Flavour is not as deep as the aroma. A well rounded green banana and sweet grain in the flavour.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Tap. Nice banana and lemony yeastiness in the aroma. Crisp and fresh. Hazy light blonde color with a white head. Citrus, lemons, bananas to start with some creaminess following. Sweet, crisp, and refreshing to finish. Despite being macro’ed with InBev, this is still a classic beer and should be a benchmark for all witbiers.(7/4/7/4/15)~~~~~~~RE-RATE~~~~~~~ Best by 10/10/13. The aroma is full of citrus with some lemon and pineapple esters present. Almost smells like Unibroue. Lightly spicy. Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a very rapidly dissipating bubbly white head. Starts highly carbonated, before some light coriander and gumball esters come through. A little husky wheat character in the middle. Finishes with light lemon acidity. Nice.
