Well I have to say that Iím genuinely impressed. I had this beer from a bottle and drank it from something of a chalice. The first sip was decieving and as the beer level in my glass dropped my like for it heightened. You can taste ever so faintly spome wonderful spices that I cannot identify but that give it a marvelous taste. A SPLENDID finish. One of the best Iíve had recently. I can imagine that this beer would go beautifully with a non-spicy simple meal, perhaps a steak and garden salad.

There are few things Iíd rather drink on a hot day. The beer looks beautiful with a nice bright yellow colour. The flavour is banana and citrus. Itís extremely refreshing but not hugely moreish. I like it.

Love this beer. Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle. A two finger white head. Aroma of wheat, orange, and spice. Delicious crisp taste, the perfect summer beer. Good hops, not too hoppy but perfect for a belgian white. Big flavor, not watery, but easy to drink.

No matter how many times I have had it I still enjoy this beer. Nice citrus and ginger notes with a body that seems to be both light and creamy at the same time. Excellent stuff and becoming much easier to get.

Pours hazy pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of wheat and fruit. Taste slightly sweet with bold wheat flavours. Very enjoyable.

MacAnUltaigh (45) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2008
Pours very pale golden from the bottle to the glass, with a small head that seems to dissipate rather quickly. Perfumy aroma may be a bit much to handle. Overly sweet in the aroma, fairly malty in the flavor department. Lots of citrus and spice. Slides across the palate with a watery mouthfeel, finishes nice and clean despite the low CO2.

Had this on in the same session as a Celis white and actually enjoyed this one more. It seemed to linger a little longer on the palatte. Have not had very many beers in this style, but will certainly start.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 One of my absolute favorite beers. I prefer it on draft. Incredibly complex bouquet. Even more incredible taste, varying from spice to citrus to malt to subtle vanilla. Delicious.

This beeer was served to me with a warning, a great omen..."if you haven't eaten anything yet, you better only have one, and if you have eaten, then don't have more than two" well, I can't remember much of the aroma, etc...I hadn't eaten and drank about 6...luckily I lived around the corner and stumbled the 100 staggers home, safely, at least un-arrestedly...

Beautifully cloudy-white with a distinctive refreshing after-taste. My first Belgian wheat, so I compare it to all others.
