The difference between tap and bottle for this beer is not as large as for many other wheatbeers. Every man, woman and child should try this relaxed and citrusy Belgian White. After your first one always through a slice of lemon it. At the moment, this is one of my favorite beers. Spicey and gingery. Could be guzzled or suckled. The taste is not overwhelming, nor so special that one could not spend an entire night drinking this. Nice and cloudy. Smooth from lips to gut. Sweet, rounded and pudgy, yet difficult to fill up on. I also taste pear in this.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 Re-rate: Very cloudy, pale gold colour with a frothy white head. Lots of lemon and coriander aroma. Dry and refreshing palate, but somewhat empty. Flavour is a slight bitterness surrounded by a dull touch of citrus (mostly lemon) and spiciness (coriander, maybe clove).

I like the gingery spiciness, but there really isn’t much else going on.

An excellent beer. I had it served in a 20 oz glass, which doubled the fun. Has a pale yellow, cloudy appearance. While you can taste the yeast, the flavour is quite complex and very refreshing. Fruity and sweet with no bitterness.

This is an excellent Belgium White. Smells great, is fruity. A great beer to keep in the fridge for when you are beat.

Rerate: Second bottle and my experience allows me to enjoy it properly. That and a fresher bottle. Maybe it was the time of day and the lack of a patio but I much preferred the draft version. The instructions on the bottle to swirl the last ounce and add the sediment produced the right cloudiness but also some firmer yeast deposits which were a little offputting. Perhaps the bottle was not as fresh as it should have been. Still a refreshing summer drink and a great change from standard North American beers.

Oh, how sweet it is to pay a meagre 3 Argentine pesos for such a great change of pace. This beer has body, and a fantasic balance of flavour and sweetness with a refreshing bite. Something I’ve forgotten existed in the past months of swill consumption. I’ve supposedly travelled to the end of the world to find this beer...

Not a beer I really like. A very, dare I say it, female kind of brew. To sweet and citrusy in flavour
