UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Color reminds me of lemonjuice, but the head looks better. White and very creamy. Aroma is typical for a weissbier with notes of citrus.Flavor is a little artifical, maybe a little fruity. Typical weissbier here as well, but not very much to my liking.

brokensail (12909) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
A: The pour is an extremely pale yellow color with an intense haze to it. The head is medium in size and white in color. S: Big time coriander aroma to this beer. The wheat and other malts provide a moderate amount of sweetness to the nose, and there is a minimal citrus note. T: Again, a heavy hand on the spice component. Lots of coriander and wheat with a distinct lemony tartness. Where am I, BJ’s? M: The body is quite light and the carbonation is quite high and lively. D: Another one of those really well known beers that everybody sort of has to try somewhere along the way. I haven’t had this beer for a long time, but I did not find it did much for me on this occasion.

Koelschtrinker (12453) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Fruchtig-hefiger, recht milder Antrunk mit verhaltener und trockener Kräuternote, die eher nebensächlich erscheint. Das Ganze wird trockener, das Level wird milder und ist gerade noch so stark, das es nicht als wässrig einzustufen ist. Herber Ausklang, in dem die Kröuternote nicht mehr erkennbar ist. 8/7/8/7/8/8

bhensonb (12310) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Aroma of yeast, citrus, and old fashioned linoleum adhesive (just a hint). Or maybe it’s just more yeast. Hazy light gold color with a large white head that went away, leaving bits of lace. Starts with strong citrus oil, and coriander. Suggestions of banana. Something of clove came next. Medium to full mouthfeel. The long finish is light clove mouthcoat and a little bitter, very little. Good ale. Clean and refreshing.

Pleasant Wit. Sweet but not cloying. Much better as it warms up.
