Nice plain White beer. But not many special characteristics. Probably a good beer to start with for beer newcomers.

Excuse my language but this is a shit-hot little beer. Tried it on tap in the UK last year and was worth every pence I paid for it. I bought another and another and another...you get the picture. Smooth, yet retains its flavour until the last moutful. Very citrusy with lovely head retention. If it weren't so damn expensive at my local bottlo I'd drink this stuff all the time.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 I'm not going to say I was disappointed with this beer because it is a great beer, but I do wish I tried it before reading other reviews so I didn't have such high expectations. It goes down easy with a great aftertaste. Nice big white head with a full yellow body. Try it before you read too many gracious reviews.

A front runner for the best Belgian Wit out there. Strong coriander and breadiness in nose. Tangy and chalky at the same time. The pale yellow body is topped by a huge rocky white head. Finishes dry and definitely leaves you wanting more.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2004 The bar down the street has this on tap. This is one of the best beers I have ever had. I am of course a fan of Belgians as you can tell from reading my other ratings but this is a great among greats. So smooth a silky on the tongue, and a creamy flavor.

I made this rating after drinking it bottled, but I still remember how much better it was on tap in Brussels (where it deserves a higher rating). A pale yellow, hazy bottle-conditioned beer that pours with a nice white head that is mostly lasting. Aroma is slightly malty, has a light dough-like yeast smell, and moderately hoppy with citrus hints of lime, orange, maybe slight banana. Flavor tastes lightly sweet and lightly acidic, with a slightly bitter finish. It has a light body, watery texture with lively carbonation. All in all an above average beer instantly recognizable. Now go drink this on tap in Grand Place!

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 Lemony, limey and zesty. This beer tastes great. Very light but not lacking in flavour. Extremely cloudy and light in colour. At first it would be easy to mistake this beer for a cider or lemonade but has a malty aftertaste that reminds you that its a beer. Ingredients list states that they use coriander and orange peel. Coriander is certainly present as it gives it its unique flavour. Does not taste like 5%. Great beer especially when you are very thirsty. Very individual. Where can i get forbiden fruits?

A great belgian white, slightly cloudy with a good strong flavour. Quite fruity going down but still plenty tasty.
