Pours a light hazy yellow with a thick white head. Notes of banana, apple, citrus, and spice on the tongue. I really nice witbier. Very refreshing.

Very pale in color, almost albino like. Distinctively different than most of the American whites where the orange and coriander dominate. This is more complex with a variety of spices coming through. I've often heard of people describing the taste of bubble gum in a beer and I thought they were crazy. This has that taste. overall, I don't like this as much as many of the American immitators. I like the citrus strength of them better (Avery for example).

33cl brown bottle.First aroma is home-made ginger beer then citrus & coriander. Good white head.I don't know if it lasts cos I always knock straight back as its a great thirst quenchet.Cloudy pale gold.Medicinal flavour at first then like the aroma the coriander, citrus & ginger remain. Sold on tap in yuppee London pubs where its outrageously expensive.A great lunchtime tipple with or without the lemon

UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Whenever I see this on tap (which isn't often), it's the one I'll grab. So unique. Appearance is cloudy bright yellow. Head is a rich white and decent thickness. Carbonation is good. Aroma is of crisp citrus + Chimay like at first (i.e. medicinal / licorice). Citrus stands out over any spices (clove / coriander?). Flavor is mildly spicy and citrusy. Adding a wedge of lemon really works here. Mouth feel is nice, smooth, and tingly. I'm not getting the hint of yeast others describe, but I definitely sense the wheat. Finish is fresh and clean. No bitterness. Some tartness in the aftertaste, but very mild. Yep, I like it big bunches. Overall, this is one of my favorites and a real winner. I think it's because of this beer's refreshing nature and unique cloudy yellow appearance.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 Nice frothy 2" white head. Pale yellow cloudy appearance. Certainly light fresh and floral nose with a hint of boiled Suidae (No kidding). Maybe apple and some spruce(citrus). Powdery gum-like mouthfeel quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2004 My first white, lots of apple in the flavor, nice and refreshing, if not a little on the simple side.

Nice white, long lasting head. looks like the honey wines from Ethiopia, and tastes like some of the native beers I have experienced in Africa. It shares the fruit flavor of honey wines. It is very smooth, and unlike other beers, doesn't mess up my stomach. I have an ulcer from anti arthritis medicine. Most beers hurt my stomach, this one doesn't. I recommend it not just for the aroma, Appearance flavor, and Palate. I recommend it because it doesn't hurt my tender stomach.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2004
I'm all mixed up in this review. She's pretty popular, but she's a tramp. Hazy sick straw yellow. Small bead, sticky carb. Nose is very mild of apples, yeast and some citric. The palate is as it should be for the style but really, really, really weak. Everything about this beer is washed out. The flavours have some bubblegum, soap, coriander, and a surprising amount of yeastiness. I had to look for residuals but hey. It looks like a genuine well crafted beer. It's pretty good for a macro. But you can't fool everyone. I'm upset to say, but it's quite a bit better than average. I also used to hate it. Cheers. Nice work.

A really delightful beer, though one that doesn't mix well with others without some serious palette cleansing in between.

Eructoblaster (3476) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2004
Pale cloudy body with nice creamy white head. Very pleasant citrus nose. Very sweet wheat flavor followed by a short bittersweet final. This is a good and easily available everyday Witbier.
