Don't drink this beer too cold, I had to wait for it to warm up to get the right palate. Good flavor and aroma. Doesn't need an orange to go with it, it has enough fruity flavor.

I actually had the misfortune of drinking a pitcher of this with a friend one night as it came highly recommended. It was all I could do to get through the pitcher. Citrusy and cloudy easy to drink but it just did not get along with my palate.

Maybe this beer came through for me in a pinch, or something, but it kind of knocked my socks off. I had been traipsing around the hell that is Ikea on Sunday, wandered into an ugly crowded bar and wasn't expecting anything near this good. So refreshing so perfect. Quite strong, but isn't that what you need when you just want to forget the furniture with umlots and the screaming children? Tried another one later in the day and it wasn't quite as good, but then it's refreshment impact would have to be lessened. Still a crisp, tasty witbier that I will seek out again.

The most popular Belgian white. The taste is refreshing with traces of orange and lemon. Very good beer.

Draught. Pale yellow and hazy with creamy head. Pleasant aroma of curacao and orange. Sweet, light bodied and very refreshing. If only all megabrews were this good.

I was very surprised in how much I like this beer, I am no fan of Belgian witbiers, but this one took me by surprised, and I'm very glad I sucked it up & bought a bottle of this, I was pleasntly surprised, the appearance was oddly similar to grapefruit juice, nice soft white silky head that laced around the glass, the color was a hazed light-golden, hints of a musty nose with a bit of tartness, very well balanced with a medium-drinkable body, the flavors seemed a bit bland, but still a very drinkable beer, definitely the best Beglian Wit I've ever had

Cloudy, cloudy, cloudy, light straw or dark lemonade, with almost no head. Appearance put me off at first — much lighter and much more cloudy than anything I had seen before. Taste of clove, hot pepper, wheat, hoppy bitterness, and a great, astringent lemony freshness. Mouthfeel a little too light. Great beer to kill a thirst on a hot summer day.
