Fantastic Belgian White, a great taste of corainder and citrus.

Pale yellow, cloudy, thin collar. Strong spicy aroma (coriander) and citrus fruits. Dry taste, spicy (coriander and cloves); light malt and hop. Palate simple, not too bitter, enough spicy. Good example, but Witbiers are not my top ones.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 I like this one. Had it on draft in a local bar here in Melbourne where they pride themselves on the presentation, so that helped. Lots of flavour and a nice finish. RERATE 26/1/03. I've toned it down a bit. That first one I had must have been a goodie - it's still nice, but I've had some less pleasant ones since. I think the Jamieson Dark Wheat deserves to be my highest ranked wheat beer.

Lemony nose wafts up from a cloudy light yellow-green beer with a pretty head and Brussels lace. Vanilla tones comes through the wit-beer taste. Light body, but great mouth feel and a big taste. Classic. I don’t do this with a lemon.

Nice at Cafe Belgique in Amsterdam. Citrus-y vanilla aroma. White body with hints of yellow and a rocky head. Refreshing wheat, citrus and vanilla taste. Soft carbonation and fullmouth flavour. Balanced!

Had this one on tap at a local pub... not that bad really; quite spicy and more of a grapefruit rind than orange peel, although you can get hints of that... citrus and spice is the big thing, fairly malty... but sour? I don’t think it was that sour... sweet finish... looked good! But still, certainly one of the most overrated beers... not bad though. Refreshing.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2002
Cloudy pale yellowish. Citrus (a mix of lemon and orange) and coriander make this a delight to smell. Those are also predominant in taste. Mouthfeel is perfect for a Belgian witbier, light and crisp. I did drink this correctly also - Three sips to the bottom!

Perfect everyday beer. Light and smooth and yet so much more sophisticated than any american ale. Has character but is simple. The perfect all around beer

Draft- Very cloudy and light colored. Has a distinct citrusy flavor that is quite refreshing.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2002
A world classic and the beer that revived the style. It is light, tart and beautifully spiced with bitter orange and coriander. The bitter orange is a little higher than alot of wits. The colour is on the darker spectrum of the style guidelines. Increasingly available on tap in Ontario, this is a good introduction to the wit style and it is served in a beautiful BIG pint glass.
