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.

Light golden hazey appearance. Aroma is of citrus, wheat, coriander and a few other spices and same goes for the taste. Very light bodied and easily drinkable. A traditional witbier.

Grumlig ljusgul öl med kritvit skumkrona. Arom av vete, frukt, citrus och jäst. Smak i samma bana, väldigt fräsch och lättdrucken, mild och lagom söt. Gillas! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In bottle. White frothy head. Persistent. Straw yellow, cloudy. Not very intense and persistent at nose. Citric and herbal notes, a bit spicy. Malt and wheat in the mouth. The slighty sour and sweet are preminent. A bit of bitter in the final. Very Fine.

loco_gallego (148) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Blanche hazy, voilée. Mousse blanche peu persistante. Peu de lacings. Aromatique plutôt sucrée et levures. Puis orange et citron un peu acide. Epicé coriandre. Houblonnage pas perceptible. En bouche relativement sucrée avec levures bien présentes. Le côté citrus-orange moins perceptible qu’au nez, petite acidité. Pas ou peu d’amertume. Fin plutôt sucrée. Bonne carbonatation.

Boxereddy (150) - BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2014
Strokleurig troebel bier met witte schuimkraag. Sinaasappel en citrus aroma’s in de neus met tarwetoets. Mild zoet in de mond, laag bitterig en zoetig in de afdronk.

UrbanCaveman (74) - Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2014
11.2 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 45 degrees F. A: Pours a pale straw, and is amazingly cloudy, to the point that I can scarcely see the shadow of my fingers on the opposite side of the glass. Formed an immense head of white foam, that quickly fell away to a ring and several patchy islands of cap. No lacing to speak of, alas. S: Fruit and wheat spring out of the glass at first whiff, laden with nigh hefeweizen levels of banana and coriander spice. There’s a tang of citrus underlying the primary aromas, and an overall sweetness that beckons to my hop-averse palate. T: The flavor profile has a definite core of sweet wheat, around which the fruit and spice notes are wrapped. Citrus notes abound through the beer, ranging from orange to mandarin and clementine, and the spice tones include coriander and just a hint of clove. Tinges of white pepper waft through the background, and a faint whisper of banana skulks about the shadows of the ester flavors. M: Rather thin and watery, moreso than expected for the level of cloudiness in the glass. While I’d expect most any wheat beer to be light-bodied, this beer lends itself to a quick flash of flavor across the palate, and then a lingering watery aftertime. O: For a witbier available at my local grocery store for a reasonable price, this is quite tasty. A little more strength in the body, and I’d call it a regular.

Une bière neutre ou l’on sent des tonalités épicées en arrière-goût. Une pointe de citron et de gingembre. Bière rafraichissante.
