RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Tap. Aroma: Light citrus (mostly lemon), coriander spice, and yeast. Appearance: Very pale yellow and hazy. Head was full, bright white and fluffy. Decent lacing. Flavor: Citrus flavor presents first, with notes of Lemon and orange. Spiciness follows soon after. Mostly coriander, but some decent pepperiness as well. Yeast is also prevalent, but masked a little by the citrus/coriander. Palate: Light bodied, and a little watery. Carboantion was lively but appropriate. Finish was dry and clean. Overall: A good starting point for the style, but far from the best witbier there is.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2006
Nice hazy bright yellow color... decent foamy head. Nice wheaty, yeasty flavors with a good amount of sweet citrus/lemon elements. Iíve had many of these in my time, theyíre pretty good.. an old stand-by. I canít say itís exceptional, but it is a solid brew indeed.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2006
Refreshing, fine taste of spices and a fine zing in the finish. OK to come from one of the evil giants.

Had on draft. Poured a dense yellow color. Light tasting with a bit of orange. Seemed to finish with a little spiciness.

swanmann (589) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle poured cloudy straw color with moderate, bright white head. Mild citrus aroma with strong yeast backbone. The flavor is mostly yeast and mild bitter hops with citrus notes. The palate is a bit weak, watery. Iíd look for others in this style.

Hazy straw color pour; good thick white head. Some citrus aroma w/spice. Palate was to me a bit weaker than other Belgian whites Iíve tried. Decent tart finish. May be a better rated beer during the Summer vs the Winter. Good but not great Witbier.

Bottle 0,3ltr: Long time not drinking this one. The standard of Belgian Whiteís with its hazy cloudy yellow looks.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 Not bad. Better if you like Clove. Thick full long lasting head. A great dessert beer
