UPDATED: MAR 17, 2007 The original white ale, and probably the best. A sensational appearance and aroma. The palate and taste are also top notch. If you can find this beer on draft, you will be hooked! Not bad from a bottle either...but pour into a pint glass.

Aroma: light fresh aroma of sweet bananas and honey Appearance: pale yellow colour, nice head that lingers at about a cm, good amount of lacing Taste: bananas and notes of orange peel Palate: creamy and not too carbonated Overall: a nice beer for the summer but I couldn’t drink more than one or two in one sitting

The aroma of wheat, banana, citrus, and a little yeast. Pours hazy pale yellow, with a large, stable head. Mostly sour and just a little bitter, seems watered down. Strongly carbonated, feels fizzy and fluffy on the tongue. Nice for a hot day, but not extraordinary.

Great thirst quencher, particularly during summer. Always order without a slice of lemon, it spoils the natural citric flavor and overwhelms the beer’s wheaty undertone. Occasionally, I do enjoy to drink it from a slightly frozen Hoegaarden glass, although this makes the taste fade somewhat.

Straw yellow cloudy beer with hefty white foam head. Aroma of coriander and citrus-like hop aroma. Taste is fresh and spicy.

aroma: hay, cereal, herbs - smells much nicer on the bottle, once poured has a really heavy herb smell that’s quite unusual. appearance: cloudy, pale beige colour. taste: pretty well rounded, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, light sourness, and definitely savoury wheat flavours like weetabix. mouthfeel: medium to full, slightly creamy, average to soft fizz. nice with a curry

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (17:-). Vete och koriander, fruktiga toner, en del jäst och kryddor, medelsöt och något syrlig, liten beska.

Very mild, almost indistinguishable from water. Ratebeer.com requires comments to be too damn long. I want to rate without long comments :( ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice fresh aroma and a taste that is at the same time a mix of belgian and freshness. Quite surprised actually, I had another pre conceived idea of this beer

Bière a déguster en apéritifs, sans problème. Mais elle n’est pas extraordinaire. Son goût citronnée relève le goût. Et l’arrière goût n’est pas désagréable. Dans sa catégorie de "bière blanche" elle figure parmi les meilleurs.
