A pale yellow color, with a slightly dark cloud. Thin white head, rapidly dispersed. I think I have to give this an extra appearance point for the lacing, after seeing my glass emptied I wanted to see it full again. A light aroma that smells just a bit of lemon. The taste is incredible, lemon, orange and coriander are all there, each flavor disguises the next. Swallows very light and creamy. This is a beer that everyone should try.

Beautiful fruity aroma and a fizzy ítangí on the palate. Quite a light colour but wicked head on it. As for the flavor... wow, very original. Hard to drink a sixer to yourself but for one or two over dinner its a hard brew to beat.

Bottle to a glass, its always very nice, however sometimes hard to find. Its the Gold Standard of Belgian Whiteís. Best warm weather beer in my opinion. Very easy drinking.

This is by far my favorite beer of all time, i would suggest this to anyone, regardless of there prefrence on beer styles, of course i am probably biased because witbier is my favorite style. It pours very cloudy with a nice white head. It almost has a lemon lime smell to it along with hint of lemon zest in the flavor, very drinkable beer with a wonderful after taste as well. One of the few beers iíll drink with breakfast.

From the bottle. Light and pale yellow colour, completely white head. Lots of yeast in aroma and some wheat. Yeast and citrus fruits in flavor. Nothing special but refreshing.

Draught. Goes down easily and can be very refreshing on a hot summer night. I like the flavour of citrus in my beer, but this one tastes too much like lemonade. Almost like a Corona after you drop a slice of lemon in it.

Purchased as a single to try.

AROMA: Nice clean citrus-y scent, with some lemon, orange, and a little bit of clove thrown in. Very pleasant, very clean.

APPEARANCE: Hazy golden pour with a solid 2-finger head that dissipates quickly, leaving a little bit of lacing on the surface. Strangely opaque look - canít see my fingers on the other side of the glass at all.

TASTE: Nice. Clean and straightforward. Flavors of orange, a little clove and vanilla, and a soft wheat background make for a wonderfully easy-drinking beer. Good stuff.

PALATE: A little astringent, and acidic. Really did a good job of clearing my palate without feeling like it had been stripped bare. Very smooth.

OVERALL: Odd that this stuff is made by a macro subsidiary, but itís very good, and surprisingly affordable. Iíd buy it again and drink it again. Nice stuff.

Pours a light hazy yellow. Aroma is of orange peel and other citrus fruits. Taste is watery with hint of citrus and very slight alcohol taste. After taste is strong coriander. Overall not my favorite pick.

Stan66 (16) - San Pedro Sula, HONDURAS - APR 20, 2012
Served in a pint glass, pours a nice translucid yellow color. medium head with good retention thru the taste test. Oregano an coriander like smell. A little odd taste to my preferences. I enjoy this beer from time to time, not on a daily basis. I am not really sure if i will try it once again, but it was a nice experience to drink one.

Poured from bottle into a Guinness pint glass. Really refreshing. Little bit of spice, little bit of lemon, nice dry finish. Itís everything itís supposed to be. Very enjoyable.
