4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 The bar down the street has this on tap. This is one of the best beers I have ever had. I am of course a fan of Belgians as you can tell from reading my other ratings but this is a great among greats. So smooth a silky on the tongue, and a creamy flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I made this rating after drinking it bottled, but I still remember how much better it was on tap in Brussels (where it deserves a higher rating). A pale yellow, hazy bottle-conditioned beer that pours with a nice white head that is mostly lasting. Aroma is slightly malty, has a light dough-like yeast smell, and moderately hoppy with citrus hints of lime, orange, maybe slight banana. Flavor tastes lightly sweet and lightly acidic, with a slightly bitter finish. It has a light body, watery texture with lively carbonation. All in all an above average beer instantly recognizable. Now go drink this on tap in Grand Place!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 Lemony, limey and zesty. This beer tastes great. Very light but not lacking in flavour. Extremely cloudy and light in colour. At first it would be easy to mistake this beer for a cider or lemonade but has a malty aftertaste that reminds you that its a beer. Ingredients list states that they use coriander and orange peel. Coriander is certainly present as it gives it its unique flavour. Does not taste like 5%. Great beer especially when you are very thirsty. Very individual. Where can i get forbiden fruits?

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle. Pale, hazy, cloudy yellow. Fruity, but with that sour and strong Belgian style. Not a favorite of mine, but drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 I tasted this one while RateBeer.com was down, so this is by memory. The looks are nice, although I must have messed up pouring it somewhat, since the head was quite moderate. The aroma is good, if not sensational. What I did expect more of was body and taste. It does taste nice, but I was thinking "easy drinking..." It's a nice brew anyway and I might have been more pleased if it had been slightly colder.
Re-rate: This has of lat become my favourite sessionbeer, so a re-rate was warranted. It looks lovely in the correct glass. Only the appearance and OA went up, but I think it deserved more than I had given it before.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Color reminds me of lemonjuice, but the head looks better. White and very creamy. Aroma is typical for a weissbier with notes of citrus.Flavor is a little artifical, maybe a little fruity. Typical weissbier here as well, but not very much to my liking.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, light lemon-yellow beer with a tight, white, long lasting head. Wheat spiciness and coriander in the aroma. The taste is light and crisp, with lemon and coriander present supported by a touch of malt sweetness. The good mouthfeel helps support the light flavor. Excellent drinakbility, and one that is high on my list for summer. There's a good reason this is a classic.
