UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Pale beige and cloudy with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus and wheat. Taste is yeasty and bready with orange peel and coriander making things quite interesting. Body is light and carbonation is high. Excellent witbier.

I most crave fries when I drink this. Something sublimb about the way the salt and strach cut dry, soft tartness of this extrodinary beer. Beer will alway be a little magical, as long as this one is around. This beer is the remedy for all the bad examples of this difficult style -- and also their inspiration for still trying.

Great summer beer. The orange and coriander blend well with the unfiltered element, which adds a fuller body to a refreshing and smooth drinking flavorful beer. It’s good when I feel like a break from the heavier stuff, which isn’t often - but it’s nice to know it’s there.

The beer poured a golden/straw color with a lot of yeast present and had white head. The taste was very well balanced.

Great big foamy white head...just as things should be. Fruity/tart/citrusy/spicy/yeasty and orange juicey. Way better than most German wheats.

Had a decent orange aroma along with vanilla. Pear jucie body color with a white creamy head. Good fruit flavor that is not to sour. Banana taste on the palate. Good refreshing beer on a hot day.

one of the best white beers around. Demonstrates the clear superiority of belgian white beers over german weissbier. Very refreshing though interesting aromas.

As far as wits go I believe that this is the one to compare all others against. Crisp and citrus filled.

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