A little TOO mellowed for me. Good quality, but bland.

Excellent look with its cloudy golden color and huge head-I wish the taste would have been as positive. Although its fruity flavor of orange was nice, the sourness was too overpowering to enjoy the flavor. A decent beer, but overshadowed by the sourness.

i realize that this is a ’white’ beer--still it’s not much to look at, unless you admire certain night-time lemon-flavored cold medicines. a small head didn’t help much so i dropped a paper parasol in it. at least now it looks festive. spicy of course, kinda floral (yawn) lemon peel of course, yeh, now there’s the coriander, yadda yadda, whatever, (thank god hops replaced coriander in the chronology of beer making), minimal white bread presence to represent the grain. okay, whatever, it’s great, just not my style.

I actually had the misfortune of drinking a pitcher of this with a friend one night as it came highly recommended. It was all I could do to get through the pitcher. Citrusy and cloudy easy to drink but it just did not get along with my palate.

I found this beer to be rather weak. Light golden color with a stark white head. Light citris aroma. Flavor was very subdued but flowery just the same. Nothing I would look for again.

I´m not a fan of the Belgian White style so my rating can´t be very high. Too sour compared to the German Wheatbeers.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Color reminds me of lemonjuice, but the head looks better. White and very creamy. Aroma is typical for a weissbier with notes of citrus.Flavor is a little artifical, maybe a little fruity. Typical weissbier here as well, but not very much to my liking.

Nice plain White beer. But not many special characteristics. Probably a good beer to start with for beer newcomers.

Damn, I didn't read the instructions on the back of the bottle that state you should swish the last bit around before adding it to the glass. Pours a very hazy straw color with a very nice head and some lacing. Scent it typical Wit. Taste is as well; bananas and spices. Mouthfeel is very weak, though, and almost watery. Overall this is okay and nothing special.
