Pure white head, cloudy natural lemonade color. Aroma like a mix between and wheat beer and a classic belgian tripel. Flavor is a little bland and mostly flat, I do not taste the corainder and orange peel that the comercial description says. (try victory golden monkey for that). It is much smoother and easy drinking that other whitbiers I have had.

I have been told that this is a typical belgian every-day wheat. Very refreshing. Got to try it on tap..

The belgian that is usually on tap around these parts, so can make for an interesting change of pace. The spice and malt flavors blend together very well. However it always seems a bit watery to me.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Fresh citrusy aroma upon opening. Nice, cloudy appearance with floating sediment - looks like a glass of grapefruit juice. Crisp, refreshing flavor - like the description says - a litle bit sweet and a little bit sour. Citrus flavor is prevalent throughout. Stays stong until the end - with just a tad bit of bitterness. Good thrist quencher after mowing the lawn -yes it is December - but it is Florida!

Not very impressive. I still got some left so I may change my mind but it seemed bland to me.

Sampled draught at Bulldog Pub, Zagreb, Croatia. -I don’t like that kind of beers made with coriander and orange peel

The difference between tap and bottle for this beer is not as large as for many other wheatbeers. Every man, woman and child should try this relaxed and citrusy Belgian White. After your first one always through a slice of lemon it. At the moment, this is one of my favorite beers. Spicey and gingery. Could be guzzled or suckled. The taste is not overwhelming, nor so special that one could not spend an entire night drinking this. Nice and cloudy. Smooth from lips to gut. Sweet, rounded and pudgy, yet difficult to fill up on. I also taste pear in this.

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 Re-rate: Very cloudy, pale gold colour with a frothy white head. Lots of lemon and coriander aroma. Dry and refreshing palate, but somewhat empty. Flavour is a slight bitterness surrounded by a dull touch of citrus (mostly lemon) and spiciness (coriander, maybe clove).
