Pouts a nice cloudy blond with a puffy white head. Nose is spicy and seems overwhelming to any other aroma. The body relaxes this a bit and allows a slight fruity note to intrude on the spice. Finishes with a bit of spice and sweetness on the tongue. Not as good as I remember but it is not a bad beer.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Pours a very pale and hazy yellow color with a beautiful tall foamy white head. Unusually pale yellow like a lemonade. The body has hints of sour apple and citrus flavor. Finishes with a sweet candy flavor. Overall, a superb belgian white.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
poured out into the glass very hazy yellow straw, lots of mixing of whites and yellows, like watching watery latex paint mix. A huge creamy, thick, foamy head grew over and beyond and was quite a thrill to see. Smells right away of the orange and lemon, extremely citrusy. Nothing out of the ordinary for this Belgian beauty, but good non the less. Tastes of a citrus brew, very citrusy with orange and lemon strongly presented and felt, with a hint of spice, coriander I believe.

Quaffmeister (50) - Henlow, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2003
(33 ml bottle) Cloudy yellow body, with a dense white head. Banana hints as a backdrop to a citrus aroma. Smooth crisp taste, with an interessting palate that I can't place. A good summer session beer.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUN 23, 2003
A cloudy yellow color with a foamy white head. Nose is quite nice but not very strong. I taste coriander, orange peels, vanilla, and maybe a little pepper. Smooth on the palate. A great Belgian white.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 Pale yellow, almost milky looking, snow white head. Plenty of citrus and spice in the aroma and flavor. A very good witbier.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2003
Another nice blanche. Orange and citrus taste. Fizzy and spicy. By now, this is my favorite blanche. Good for any occasion.

12oz bottle-nice clove/spicy aroma-appearance was pale yellow and cloudy, almost white(i wonder why....)flavor was spicy and sweet. definately one of the better witbier selections out there along with the victory whirlwind.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2003
a medium white head, with a milky white appearance. an interesting texture that seems heavier that it actually is. a flavor similar to a razz-wheat (strange but true)
