Donít forget this one for that crisp refreshing summer cold drink. An upscale after a sweat quick one - or two :-) - that youíll find cloudy, pale moon yellow, a touch spiced, white headed and satifying.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2004
A huge frothy head over a pale hazy yellow beer. Nice carbonation retains a (thin) head throughout. Nice aroma of spice and citrus. Initial tang of bitter and tart followed by the spiciness of coriander. Dry and refreshing, very quenching. Defines style.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2004
Pale gold, very unclear, white creamy head. Good carbonation. Fresh flavour with citrus, yeast and wheat. Some underlying spicyness (coriander, and a hint of pebber?). A smooth palate. Overall a very good wit beer (prototypic).

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2004
The flavoring is very familiar to the Sterkens White I had last christmas. Spicy, carbonated flavoring. Better than Sterkens White. Looks make it resemble a very thin wheat beer. Not Bad.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2004
Bottle- Pours a paly yellow body, with a fluffy white head. Aromas are floral, fruity, and somewhat spicy. Taste is citrus with a slight hoppy edge and a mild spice flavour. Leaves a little bit of a bite in the throat, making this beer even more interesting.

jasonp (1557) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 A very fine brew. Pours a deep gold with a nice white head. Taste is slightly spicy, sweet and malty. A very nice brew even though Belgian Whites arenít really my thing.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Hazy pale straw body, creamy white head that doesnít quit. Dusty grain aroma with orange citrus notes. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Gentle pepper, orange, and grain in the flavor. Finishes with sort of a diluted hop bitterness.

I refer to this one as the manly beer because of the huge glasses they serve it in at the BierMarkt - you have to be a man to have more than one of those, just to lift the big glss after having a few!

Tried both on tap (Toronado) and bottled. Bottled was better: cloudy yellow-orange color with thick fizzy head; aromas of orange and lemon; tart, a bit sweet, yeasty, nutty, and citrusy flavor. On tap, the yeast had settled so the color was clear and it had less body. Great summer beer.

Of all white beers, this is the standard. Nice cloudy hazy pour, mmm, smell the spices come through. Nice balance of coriander/citrus in the finish. I dont get that much of a presence of sweetness in this one that many folks seem to. Exceptional beer.
