Although it looks kinda scary it tastes great. It has a good bready yeast smell to it as well.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 Strong clove/coriander. Spicey, but definitely in a good way. One of my favorites. Very refreshing. Cloudy appearance. I know this is a summer beer, but its 25 outside and I"m loving this beer.

Always a great beer to cheer you up, floral,citrusy,herbacious and smooth, if you can get on tap and served correctly it is one of the best.

Beautiful white lasting head. Cloudy yellow color. Medium bodied. Aroma with flowers and citrus notes. Flavor is sweet, citrusy and a bit acidic ending slightly bitter. One of best beers I’ve ever had.

Northernbrewer (147) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2002
Not my favorite style, but the aroma is very good. Citrusy, sourdoughy, with some floral and lavendar notes. A tart and yeasty flavor and very light body with low bitterness leave me wanting somthing more, and somthing more might just be another bottle of it.

Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of coriander, ginger, and orange zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly, this hasn't been ruined by Interbrew as of yet...retains all the characters essential to classic witbier, and isn't dirty tasting. Lacks distinction and uniqueness, and I wouldn't buy this regularly based on principle, but it's a decent witbier.
