Pale gold, very unclear, white creamy head. Good carbonation. Fresh flavour with citrus, yeast and wheat. Some underlying spicyness (coriander, and a hint of pebber?). A smooth palate. Overall a very good wit beer (prototypic).

The flavoring is very familiar to the Sterkens White I had last christmas. Spicy, carbonated flavoring. Better than Sterkens White. Looks make it resemble a very thin wheat beer. Not Bad.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2004
Bottle- Pours a paly yellow body, with a fluffy white head. Aromas are floral, fruity, and somewhat spicy. Taste is citrus with a slight hoppy edge and a mild spice flavour. Leaves a little bit of a bite in the throat, making this beer even more interesting.

jasonp (1573) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 A very fine brew. Pours a deep gold with a nice white head. Taste is slightly spicy, sweet and malty. A very nice brew even though Belgian Whites aren’t really my thing.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Hazy pale straw body, creamy white head that doesn’t quit. Dusty grain aroma with orange citrus notes. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Gentle pepper, orange, and grain in the flavor. Finishes with sort of a diluted hop bitterness.

I refer to this one as the manly beer because of the huge glasses they serve it in at the BierMarkt - you have to be a man to have more than one of those, just to lift the big glss after having a few!

Tried both on tap (Toronado) and bottled. Bottled was better: cloudy yellow-orange color with thick fizzy head; aromas of orange and lemon; tart, a bit sweet, yeasty, nutty, and citrusy flavor. On tap, the yeast had settled so the color was clear and it had less body. Great summer beer.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Of all white beers, this is the standard. Nice cloudy hazy pour, mmm, smell the spices come through. Nice balance of coriander/citrus in the finish. I dont get that much of a presence of sweetness in this one that many folks seem to. Exceptional beer.

I have to admit that I’m not a big Belgian White fan, so I didn’t really expect to like this beer, and I was right. It featured, in healthy doses, everything I dislike about this style: cloudy, dark appearance, lots of carbonation, and cloyingly sweet flavors of citrus (mostly orange/pineapple), fruit, and spice, and a lack of any noticeable hop flavors. So I can’t say I really enjoyed it. That said, it seemed to be an incredibly well-crafted example of this style, much more full than a Blue Moon and more flavorful than a Paulaner hefeweizen . It had quite a bit of character, and none of its features struck me as poor or inappropriate qualities. It’s a quality brew, but it’s simply not my type.

Smells like a White beer, looks like it. Taste is some carbonation and some of that fruit. Also honey and citrus. Could be apple, grapefruit, even spearmint.
