Bottle. Nose is very yeasty and raw. Pours a dense one-finger head on a straw yellow cloudy body. Body looks like lemonade. Taste is very yeasty and wheaty. It tastes quite raw and unrefined. There is a flavor vaguely reminiscent of suntan lotion. There is a spice/clove taste on the finish. I don’t know. Not really my cup o’ tea. I like everything about it except that lotion like taste. The only other Witbier I have tried is New Belgium Sunshine Wheat, and it seemed to have alot more character.

Bottle. This is the first wheatbeer I ever tasted. And now (of course) I find the flavor of it way too mild and discrete. It’s a beer for people who don’t really like beer. But it’s fresh and thirstquenching. And harmless. And since that’s actually all they promise it to be, it’s allright.

This is a all time drinkable beer and in large amounts... :-) I really enjoy this beer, light smooth citrus flavor and nice mid range aroma and color.

On Tap @ The Imperial House, a strange psuedo hip Piano Bar in San Diego. This place is usually very good with their beer barware but sadly this brew was served in a Bud Light Pint Glass. The brew poured pale yellow slightly cloudy with barely any head. The aroma had a bit of hop to it but really nothing special. Taste was basically okay nothing to be surprised by. Eh, ok not bad not stellar in anyway.

Very light with white head, cloudy with a bunch of crap floating in it. Sweet, hoppy aroma. A little salty and bitter, with a sweet aftertaste. A hint of pine in the taste, but not great on the palate. It’s about average in my book.

I am not keen at witbeers, and even the taste of this famous Hoegaarden I can’t really appreciate. But still, it is one of the best witbeers I ever tasted. And the appearance is great.

Very disappointing, actually. Sharp aroma that was promising...but the taste was a bit sour. Felt oily on the tongue and just an overall unpleasant experience.

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