Not the best Belgian white around, but it seems to be one of the most readily available. Whatís this I hear, Celis White no longer available! For shame. What a loss!

Good taste, especially floating a lemon in it. Not as harsh as some other wheat beers.

Nice white head upon pouring. Swirl the last few drops out for that yeast! Then it gives this golden beer its famed "White Beer" apperance. Nice flowery aroma with A natural lemony taste with a good balance of the grains and the aftertaste is nice and bitter almost like an ale. A nice beer if you want to try something diffrent.

A few smooth and satisfying beer. I had this for ther first time on tap at a local watering hole and was blown away. An EXCELLENT witbier. IF you want a more descriptive review, i have to say read tsarmanís review its classic. The best part about this beer is its ubiquity. It seems to be popping up everywhere, and this is a good thing, because it offers a decent alternative to the other piddle that is being served in gin mills across this country. SIt back, relax and let this smooth brew light your fire (smoothly).

Smells fresh on opening. Looks great in a glass - pale yellow color, white frothy head, and lightly cloudy. Light bread smell (yummy). Somewhat fizzy with very little aftertaste, which wasnít bad at all - itís exactly what I was looking for in this type. I had this one with angel hair nests and vodka-tomato sauce covered in sun-dried tomatos. It went surprisingly well. Overall this is a great witbier.

One of the nicest beers Iíve ever tasted. This is one cool beer. Everything from itís mysterious cloudy colour, to the speciality glass encompasses it. Aorma may be a slight let down, itís complex but to me, as I spend alot of time around bacterial culture, the smell of yeast was odd, but not detering. The meat of this beer is in the taste. It glides smoothly, holding itís medium/full body well with itís abv which doesnít overwhelm at all, letting those sweet citrus notes shine, along with the classic wtibier taste. A must try.

Definitely the worst beer I've ever tried. The smell alone was almost enough to prevent me from drinking it. It was suggested to drink it with a lemon in it, which did pretty much nothing to improve the taste. Horrible! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My first wheatbeer - i think it has changed since? Itís a very nice wheatbeer, but itís also kindof "average" - trying not to displease anyone instead of *really* pleasing some people. Still very refreshing on a hot summer day! I could wash them down all day...
