A fenom! The best belgian white in the world.(’Period’) Amazingly complex from citrus flavors that sparkle on the tongue to the corriander which hits the pallate as a perfect after-thought. Probably the best smelling beer I’ve ever experienced. re-rate 7/11: Ok, so I exagerated how go this really is. After trying a lot of hefe’s I couldn’t rate this higher than 3.5.

i realize that this is a ’white’ beer--still it’s not much to look at, unless you admire certain night-time lemon-flavored cold medicines. a small head didn’t help much so i dropped a paper parasol in it. at least now it looks festive. spicy of course, kinda floral (yawn) lemon peel of course, yeh, now there’s the coriander, yadda yadda, whatever, (thank god hops replaced coriander in the chronology of beer making), minimal white bread presence to represent the grain. okay, whatever, it’s great, just not my style.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2003 Great 'patio' beer. Refreshing scent, citrus/spice. Light taste with nice light spice finish. This is a wonderful beer to be tasted in quantity.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 I like this beer very much. It’s light and refreshing (in a good way). The citrus and spice don’t overwhelm--they seem quite natural. Perfect on a hot summer day.

jazz88 (2553) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 6, 2002
Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow. A nice foamy head that laced out. Citrusy coriander aroma. There is a nice carbonated feel, but the flavor was more watery than I expected. Refreshing but without the substance I wanted.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2002
Very light but extremely flavorsome…Touches of curaçao and coriander, lemon and pepper…Too easy for me though…

It’s drinkable, but I won’t go after this one again.

strong rich aroma, cloudy yellow color with small lace and head. taste is fruit with a most excellent spicy finish. the finish is similiar to that of the chimay products
