jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2004 Pours a light orange/tan with a fizzy head. Aroma is mild but citrusy. Flavor is citrusy, wheaty, with a bit of spice, and some bubblegum as it warms. A very refreshing beer, I can't wait to lay out on the beach with a six pack of this. This is the kind of beer that should be in corona commercials.

Great example of a witbier. Very smooth and citrusy. Goes down easy and extremely good to drink when it is really cold. Light colored. Thirst quenching.

Oh dear oh dear. Whatís all the fuss about this stuff? Iíve never liked it, and I never will - Iím not a fan of wheat beers anyway, but sickly sweet toothrot with dodgy spices/essences... no thanks. Horrible.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Pours a cloudy yellow-white with a thick white head. Aroma is typical for a witbiere, citrus and yeast. Taste is very mellow, smooth. Very good.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2004
Light yellow and very cloudy color with big head. Looks very much of grape lemonade. Aroma has some lemon but banana comes out stronger. Flavor starts with crispy carbonated bite in your tongue, later taste of malt is also dominated by banana. Little bit of bland taste, and I also waited this beer to be fuller. Carbonation in the end covers some of the mild hops, although some of it works nicely. As I said this was little bit of disappointment, altough it was my first Belgian white. May work fine when you are thirsty or in sauna.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Pours a murky, lemon juice color with a little white head. Strong citrus hop and doughy nose. Flavors are orange (with the peel) belgian yeast, and a very feint licorice taste. Very nice.

This beer looks, smells and tastes wonderful. Cloudy, citrus-y sweet and incredibly refreshing. The perfect thirst-quencher for our hot, humid Atlanta summers.
