UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 I tasted this one while RateBeer.com was down, so this is by memory. The looks are nice, although I must have messed up pouring it somewhat, since the head was quite moderate. The aroma is good, if not sensational. What I did expect more of was body and taste. It does taste nice, but I was thinking "easy drinking..." It's a nice brew anyway and I might have been more pleased if it had been slightly colder. Re-rate: This has of lat become my favourite sessionbeer, so a re-rate was warranted. It looks lovely in the correct glass. Only the appearance and OA went up, but I think it deserved more than I had given it before.

rlgk (12521) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Color reminds me of lemonjuice, but the head looks better. White and very creamy. Aroma is typical for a weissbier with notes of citrus.Flavor is a little artifical, maybe a little fruity. Typical weissbier here as well, but not very much to my liking.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Cloudy, light lemon-yellow beer with a tight, white, long lasting head. Wheat spiciness and coriander in the aroma. The taste is light and crisp, with lemon and coriander present supported by a touch of malt sweetness. The good mouthfeel helps support the light flavor. Excellent drinakbility, and one that is high on my list for summer. There's a good reason this is a classic.

I love this beer. It has a great aroma that does not overpower the flavor of the beer. It's has a great flavor that does not linger in the mouth. Over all this is the beer I want to drink when I get home from work.

What a beautiful beer! It's a hazy white beer with a long lasting white head. Soft taste with notes of orange and spice. Nice and balanced

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Lightly hazy with a nice white cloudy head. Aroma is lightly hinted with banana and clove with a slight coconut background. Flavor has hints of sweet fruit and of coarse whitbier esters (balove). Finishes moist like a belgian wheat but with a little more character.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Pours a cloudy yellow with light white head. Aroma of wheat and spice, some bread. Wheaty citrus, some yeast and spice. Very smooth. Nice witbier.

Accaris (21) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2003
With a dreamy light cloudy color with a white head, this beer is great in the glass. It has a smooth citrus and wheat taste with a tad of spice that makes it unique. A winsome white beer that's great with a lemon.
