UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 Cloudy yellow body sets it apart right away from a lager or pilsner. Pleasant intricate mix of fruity, spicy, subtle wheat and very slight nutty/woody aromas - not overkilled nonetheless. Quite alluring. Optimum carbonation but not unqiuely sparkling on the tounge. Refreshing enough though. This brew has character. Light to medium body, the brew is alright on the palate. Despite the spectrums of nice aromas, its taste is not reflective of what you would expect by smell. Hopped on the bitter side and lacking in wheat flavours, the citruses culminate in a somewhat hard sour finish. Its saving grace is its sweet middle and crisppiness - making it an easy brew to enjoy despite its shortcomings. Good for hot days. Opt for draught/tap.

almopina (87) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2007 Hazy light beige (almost white) colour with a thin white head with good lacing. Without the head, it would really look very similar to a lemonade. Great aroma full of yeasts and fruits (specially orange and lemon). Great spicy flavour of sweet malts and fruits (again, specially lemon and orange). Not so especial palate. Aftertaste, however, is a very pleasant: good mix of spice, yeasts, orange and malt. Do not drink this beer very cold or you’ll miss basically everything!!! Refreshing and easy to drink. Very good beer.

An extremely tasty and solid witbeer. I really enjoy the spiciness created by the yeast, and think that the spicing is done the perfect amount.

Gabler (87) - , New York, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Tap. Poured cloudy yellow. Yeasty aroma, faintly fruity. Nice refreshing, mild body. Earthy citrus palate. wheat flavor...overall a very clean, refreshing brew. Defintely a summer standard.

the aroma was a little overwhelming with hoppyness. this beer was a better starter than finisher, as it went down smooth, but had a bit of a funky aftertaste, as well as depreciation in taste as the more you drank. not a bad beer, but i would probably never buy it again.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2007 Still the best white beer. Good fresh citrus taste. Beautiful looks in characteristic glass!

ecbeerguy (86) - East Chicago, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Pours with a nice head that dissipates rather quickly. A slightly sour aroma, but hardly offensive. A nice taste, nothing that I can discern, but overall, very good.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2009 Easily my favorite beer. I will have to come back and edit the score more accurately, as I’m really just anxious to get a review up right now.

I got to taste this one unexpectedly. I was feeling pretty good by the time I got to this one so my rating may be a little skewed. For some reason I got a pepper taste out of this one. Followed by a sweet taste to finish. I thought it had a good taste, but nothing to fansy
