Very nice, one of my favourite beers, nice with a slice of lemon, but why is it so damn expensive???

RichardGretton (4274) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2002
It has got in its aroma and flavour hints of orange and grapefruit. The beer is almost clear with a slight haze, and a good sized head. For my first wheat beer it was OK but I was expecting something more special than what I got.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2002
A small creamy head and a cloudy gold colour. Soft carbonation and a nice creamy mouthfeel, hints of orange, yeasty and refreshing. Iíd go one again.

A great wheat flavor however would help if it had more bite. Appearance is great. Nice with a lemon.

Very light cloudy color with a white head, a bitter aroma, another orange-peel beer, like Orval, but I prefer this one, as it’s not as bitter or sour, this is a medium-bodied, light, pale malt, well carbonated, warm, crisp, and uplifting, very refreshing on a hot summer’s day, a little less potent in the bottle, at the Fireside Restaurant in Chicago it’s served with a slice of lemon in the hexagonal glass, in my view, I much prefer the Three Floyds Alpha King Pale Ale, which by the way, happens to be served there as well.

bierkoning (10484) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2002
Strong aroma of honey, yeast, banana an d sweet oranges. Sweet, fruity and spicey taste. Slightly bitter and yeasty finish. Still a good beer, but not as good as 15-20 years ago, when teh brewery was still small and was owned by Celis. In those days the beer was only available irregularly in the Locus Publicus pub in Delft. At its peak, the beer was magic. When Interbrew took over, the beer got a more constant quality. But on the whole the quality diminished slightly, iím afraid.

Maybe I got a bad batch. I was overwhelmed by the coriander and orange of a bottle of Blue Moon, but this was really bland. Picked up as I drank more and the beer warmed up and my palate got used to the subtleness. Still missed the spicy notes.
