this was the first beer I really liked... citrusy flavor adds a nice touch... light crisp, clean beer.

Draught. Poured to a light yellow with a fully white head. Low to medium body with allot of fizz. Wheaty aroma with citrus notes. Fizzy beginnig, with a citrus & wheaty middle ending with a crisp aftertaste. Very light and well balanced, not overpowering but maybe a little too watery. Good summer drink.

This is a great witbier beer. The pour appearence is a foggy light gold with a marshmellow like head. There isnt all that much of an aroma aside from the scent of yeast. The palate is so smooth and the taste has hints of citrus and spice.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 Just ok. . Very refreshing and suitable for hot days though :P too commercial for me.

Great beer for the lighter summer varieties. Can get cloying but excellent in moderation or with food.

Like an alcoholc ice cream float! Best on tap. Avoid the faffing around with lemons as there is enough of a citrus flavour without that.

Very interesting beer, with a well balanced taste (and content) of yeast. Fruity and a little bit spicy taste.

Cloudy, very pale straw-coloured beer with a good frothy white head. Very nice lacing and doesn’t overdo the carbonation. I was a bit worried to try this one after reading some of the descriptions since I normally don’t like overly spiced beers – (How many of you ratebeerians really go in the kitchen often enough to know what coriander smells like?) – but the citrus and spice isn’t overplayed at all. Very soft mouth feel and nice tangy aftertaste. Overall it certainly refreshes but it does lack enough character to really be one of the greats.

Crisp, refreshing taste, but distinctly alcoholic. Very nice balance of citrus and chocolate tastes. A pleasant beer to be enjoyed on a summer afternoon.
