UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 One of my absolute favorite beers. I prefer it on draft. Incredibly complex bouquet. Even more incredible taste, varying from spice to citrus to malt to subtle vanilla. Delicious.

My most favorite white beer. Just enough uglis flavor which compliments the orange/tangerine flavor to become wonderfully significant to the great taste.

Cloudy pale yellow w/ moussy head. Wispy spice and fruit aromas. Light, effervescent mouthfeel. Crisp coriander and citrus flavours combine with a refreshing acidity. Despite its mass-market appeal this beer remains a classic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 Rerate: I first had this before I started seriously rating beers, and I quite liked it. It has an effervescence and subtle complexity of flavor that makes it a hit--even though in some ways it is a very "normal" beer in the UK, not uncommon in Oxford, at least in the more upscale places. Citric and spicy, bubbly yet drinkable. I'd drink this as a "regular" beer if I weren't always trying to drink new beers!

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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
