3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2008 [rerate needed] Pour was murky light with medium head, rich taste of coriander and orange peel really show up. Smooth and light on the mouth, avoiding the harshness that other witbiers have. Very enjoyable.

Quite a nice beer. Cloudy with medium head and slightly sour flavor. I dunno about the best beer in the world, but I'd drink it again.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 Cool bottle nice cloudy beer. Weiss beer is the best and this and Hacker-Pschorre are the best of the genre. I must say I can't make up my mind between the two of which is the worlds best beer. Great w lemon, and it tastes as good as a great meal. Light and smooth.

Not too different from the tap version. Very tasty, although I don't like the look of the new bottle. They lost the cream colored label and made it more high-tech looking. Note to Interbrew: that's the wrong aesthetic.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very harmonious. The orange peel, coriander, and yeast eclipse the malt yet it's still quite good. Light-bodied but not wimpy at all. Smells magnificent.

One word, wow! Quite easy to find on tap now. I prefer the bottled version, simply because of the novelty of it, but a nice pint of this, on a hot English summers day *cough* is heaven!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pale yellow with a hazy appearance. Light bodied with spicy and floral aromas. Light malt flavors with citrus notes as well as a creamy yeasty mouthfeel. Well carbonated, crisp and very refreshing. Outstanding.
