A very good wheat beer...itís got an interesting sour taste to it...but itís good overall and goes down smooth. Great example of a Belgian beer.

Pours a cloudy and very pale yellow color that is about as close to white as a beer can get. It has a large white head that does not linger and a nice spicy, citrusy aroma that is a little weak. Hints of coriander and orange peel are in the flavor, the finish is long, dry and spicy. This is a highly drinkable and very nice Belgian witbier.

My favorite white beer. I think the belgians are slightly better at makin white beer than the Germans. A definite must try.

I am not a big fan of white beers, and this was a different experience for me. Served with a lemon in most places in France and Belgium, this beer has the distinct flavor of a Belgian White - just a bit too bland for me.

Re-rate: alwasy liked it, and its always solid, but its just not as complex as it used to be when i started beer-huntiní. Nice belgian character, sweetish, with some spicy coriander, and lemony/mandariny citrusy flavour, refreshing none-the-less, and great when the weather is hot etc. Just not the beer it once was when i first had it a couple of years ago. i liked the old bottles better aswell, they were more classically Belgian. None of this wanky curved bottle crap, it smells of wanky marketing dudes at Interbrew.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2004 The aroma is the highlight of this beer. Flavors are good, the "sweet and sour" as they say, is refreshing and tasty, but the body is so light that the flavors don't have enough time on the palate. Very refreshing beer, but probably not worth the premium price.

Pale, champagnish appearance. Interesting to see "coriander and orange peel" described in the commercial description, thatís exactly how the guide at the tasting I just got back from described it. Dry, wheaty finish, somewhat sweet, could be stronger.

On tap. Very pale yellow with an almost flour-in-suspension look in the body. Very bright white sicky head. Aromas of wheat and lemon with a flavor profile similar to the aroma though I picked up some coriander as well. As the years have passed since I first tried this witbier It seem to me as though this beer has gotten too consistent, almost mechanical and a tad blander.
