Cool glass. Almost no aroma, almost no flavour, no palate, no aftertaste. The head is the only thing about this beer which is not bad or missing. I would rather slake my thirst with water than with this. I really don’t understand why all you folks rate this pissy stuff so high.

Very refreshing beer. However has no palate at all. Very fruity and cloudy.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Lemony aroma and to be fair it looked like lemonade too. The flavor was almost 100% citrus. Just a slight hint of something sour. It is exactly as advertised and truthfully I could have enjoyed several more but it left me feeling a bit lacking. To be fair though I had it the same night I sampled the Orval so perhaps it is just being overshadowed.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2003 Pours a very cloudy yellow, huge white head that sticks around and sticks to the glass on the way down. Aroma is a little malty (bread), some citrus (lemon), and spicy (mainly coriander). Flavor is a refreshing mix of citrus and spices. Body is medium, ends acidic and slightly dry. Perfect beer for the summer.

don’t shun it, even though it’s made by interbrew. has the great cloudy witbier appearance, aroma and flavour are standard of the style(coriander, citrus...). probably the best beer I’ve had from a major brewing company.

Looks like lemonade.Floral nose. Thin palate. This would be great summer beer.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2002
Cloudy, fizzy white head. Wheat and lemon custard aroma. Orange zest, refreshing, a bit soapy (probably from the coriander).
