Average at best. Many better and cleaner/crisper option. Decent flavor; however, it is not anything in comparison to the other Belgians I have had

ErikTheViking (76) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2008
Unfiltered/cloudy, pale yellow almost white. Creamy white head. Very fresh aroma from citrus and apple. A little bitter aftertaste. In spite of the appearance it was very easy drinking on a sunny summerday, and much better than I remembered it from earlier.

Always enjoyable. A great Belgian witbeer. Worth drinking when available. The flavors of orange and coriander are easily noticeable and excellent. A favorite when looking for a lighter flavored beer or a witbeer

One of the lightest colored beers I've seen. Not a great smell or head. Good lacing. Sour without much flavor and no hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sneakychi (75) - SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2013
Pale, hazy. Mildly spicy with some sweetfruit in aroma. Refreshing! But didn’t it used to be more to this beer?

DrStrangelove (75) - ITALY - JUN 25, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 Bottle. A cloudy, very pale yellow Witbier with a mostly diminishing huge white head. Aroma is citrus (!), coriander, yeast. Sweet, almost no bitterness and very drinkable and refreshing. Body is thin. A bit watery. One of best beer for summer months.

Schnabelhund (75) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2013
Pours hazy, pale yellow. The frothy white head sticks around for quite some time. The notes of clove, pepper, orange, lemon, and coriander are very intense on the nose, while the banana note is more muted; overall very pretty to smell. It is very smooth on the palate, with the lemon (not orange) component being dominant, complemented by the soapy characteristic of coriander and minerals, but it doesn’t undergo a very complex transition. The bitterness is virtually non-existent, hence the clean finish is completely dominated by the acidity and typical wheat-yeast-interaction. The body couldn’t be lighter in a beer with 5% ABV, while the carbonation is very lively and makes the mouthfeel pleasantly bubbly. Ridiculously refreshing.

12oz bottle. Soft wheat flavor combined w/a perfect amount of spice. A very enjoyable tasting experience.

SylvainCFC (74) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2016
Belle robe trouble blond pastel, blancheur verdâtre typique de la blanche. Mousse moyenne très crémeuse de bonne tenue. Bulles très fines. Nez de citron, zeste, légèrement épicé. Métal léger. Attaque sur le citron et le coriandre. Très rafraichissant, corps fin, très peu de sucre. Finale légèrement amère. Archétype de la blanche belge, particulièrement fraiche. Très stable, stabilisée dans l’équilibre des saveurs et la texture.

Maybe this beer came through for me in a pinch, or something, but it kind of knocked my socks off. I had been traipsing around the hell that is Ikea on Sunday, wandered into an ugly crowded bar and wasn't expecting anything near this good. So refreshing so perfect. Quite strong, but isn't that what you need when you just want to forget the furniture with umlots and the screaming children? Tried another one later in the day and it wasn't quite as good, but then it's refreshment impact would have to be lessened. Still a crisp, tasty witbier that I will seek out again.
