Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2004
Bottle: Poured a cloudy pale yellow/gold with a big head that slowly dissipated to a coverlet. Aroma was dominated by citrusy/lemony notes, some pine, with coriander seed becoming noticable as it warmed. Flavour was buttery lemon, tangy with some light banana notes and cloves in the background. Light bodied with very fine carbonation and very well balanced bitterness. This is a beer that compliments itself in every aspect.

Slight hoppy aroma..memories of Holsten Alkolfrei, cloudy lemon juice colour, quickly dissipating head, hints of orange and spices..like a very weak chai tea. Not terrible, and very refreshing...I must ask though, where are my precious malts?

Cloudy pale blonde color, thin white head. Nice aroma of citrus, maybe spices also. The flavor is mostly citrus, maybe spices too. Light to medium body, oily mouthfeel. This is a mainstream witbier, it is easily drinkable by a lot of people, but it’s not very good.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Poured a hazy/cloudy yellow with an averaged sized head. Aromas and tastes of lemons and citris. One of the best Witbiers out there. Very easy to drink...

jefcon (1656) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Cloudy and pale in the glass, with a delicate white head. Aromas of lemon and citrus, slight smell of yeast. This beer has a diminutive taste, but is complex and very subtle -- maybe a little too subtle to appreciate the flavors and spice, however. I expected more from this witbier.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2004
330ml bottle. A hazy, pale yellow witbier that pours with a foamy, lasting head. White bread aroma with a lemony accent. Light body with a creamy/watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Bready, wheaty, and pasta-like flavour has some citrus notes. Dry, lightly bitter finish. Coriander and orange peel tastes aren’t particularly noticeable. Still a relatively pleasant summer drink, but seems to have lost much of its character over the last few years. This is the unoffensive, mainstream version of a beer that was once much better.

lytzenhoff (27) - Fuen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2004
Very interesting beer, with a well balanced taste (and content) of yeast. Fruity and a little bit spicy taste.

Served in iced glasses. Very summery drink. Mother of all wit-beers? A bit thinner than I remember, might be due to temperature.
