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.

Light hazy color. Strong spice particularly clove. A bit citrus and tart. Enjoy it.

My most favorite white beer. Just enough uglis flavor which compliments the orange/tangerine flavor to become wonderfully significant to the great taste.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 What a great "Witbier". Did the orange wedge trick after the pour. Pale color with a light head that doesn’t last too long. You can smell the citrus in here. Nice and light..Very refreshing indeed. One of my regulars in rotation during the summer.. Even the wife likes this one..

Bottle. Cloudy, light yellow appearance with a moderate white head which lingered nicely. Natural spice aroma. A very refreshing, citrus taste helps to award this beer with high marks.

This is my session beer for when I need someone else to make the beer run. I buy too when there is limited selection at the shop. Its best on tap, but bottle poured is quite good also. Ditch the lemon if the bartender gives you one; IMO it ruins the beer!

Has a citrus taste, nice and yellow. An easy beer to drink, refreshing, and no kick at the end.
