I am not a big fan of white beers, and this was a different experience for me. Served with a lemon in most places in France and Belgium, this beer has the distinct flavor of a Belgian White - just a bit too bland for me.

Re-rate: alwasy liked it, and its always solid, but its just not as complex as it used to be when i started beer-huntin’. Nice belgian character, sweetish, with some spicy coriander, and lemony/mandariny citrusy flavour, refreshing none-the-less, and great when the weather is hot etc. Just not the beer it once was when i first had it a couple of years ago. i liked the old bottles better aswell, they were more classically Belgian. None of this wanky curved bottle crap, it smells of wanky marketing dudes at Interbrew.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2004 The aroma is the highlight of this beer. Flavors are good, the "sweet and sour" as they say, is refreshing and tasty, but the body is so light that the flavors don't have enough time on the palate. Very refreshing beer, but probably not worth the premium price.

Pale, champagnish appearance. Interesting to see "coriander and orange peel" described in the commercial description, that’s exactly how the guide at the tasting I just got back from described it. Dry, wheaty finish, somewhat sweet, could be stronger.

On tap. Very pale yellow with an almost flour-in-suspension look in the body. Very bright white sicky head. Aromas of wheat and lemon with a flavor profile similar to the aroma though I picked up some coriander as well. As the years have passed since I first tried this witbier It seem to me as though this beer has gotten too consistent, almost mechanical and a tad blander.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2003 Kind of smelled like cologne at first, then I could identify the smells. Now it smells like a bowl of fruit loops. Spicy but not overly so. Golden cloudy yellow with white head. The first white I"ve had, I think I like it. Light-bodied and fruity.

While I suspect my palate is unrefined, I simply couldn’t get much beyond a simple wit here. Try as I might, I can’t taste more than a tiny hint of spice/orange. Otherwise good.
