I have to be honest - The Belgian Whites just don't do it for me. Not that I don't enjoy a nice relaxing beer; something to go down easy, I just like a little more character than this. This one is very pale, definite grain/straw aroma, with a little hoppyness. Taste is lightly bitter, smooth palate, but I think it just needs something "extra."

By far the best witbier out there! Cloudy straw color, excellent head retention and good lacing. Great citrusy and yeasty aroma. The flavor has citrus (orange, lemon), that classic Belgian yeast character, mild spiciness and phenolics, and some wheat tartness. Light bodied and effervescent. Very refreshing. Great beer for a hot Arizona summer day.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2003 On tap in the Cellar, St. Andrews. It's like drinking a freakin bail of hay. That in itself was too overpowering for me to pick up on anything else. ReRate: I was far too hasty with this. It takes some time to get used to the straw flavor, but once that sets in a very nice citrus flavor slides in. Still not my favorite, but far better than I originally found it to be.

Coriander aroma. Cloudy appeareance with a very nice large head. Nice coriander taste with some fruity sweetness. Good brew, but not the best Belgian.

Great light tasting but still spicy, sweet, almost citric flavor. One of many great beers to come from Belgium. The palate is smooth, crisp and refreshing. Only downside is the cloudy nature of the appearance.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Aroma: smells great with ester and citrus overtones characteristic of the style. Appearance: Beautiful, cloudy, heady, and glowing yellow. Palate: smooth, crisp and refreshing. Flavor: nice hints of spice and ester. light and tantilizing. Overall: Really good, but could use a bit more flavor.

Looks like lemonade with a few floaties. A mild Belgian spiciness is very pleasant in the hot humid summer. A citrus crispiness bites the palate. Refreshing.

Crisp, bubbly, lemon and apple flavor, so yeasty I can almost taste the B vitamins, one of the best wits I've had.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 Draught. Cloudy and almost flourescent lemon-lime color. Yeasty citrus, aroma. Taste of lemons, wheat, and yeast. Super-smooth palate.
