JorisPPattyn (8200) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2008
Huge, dense head leaving shards of lace over hazy greenish-yellow, nearly fluorescent beer. Spicy, coriander in particular, soupy, faint (fake) citrus, but fresh-smelling. Wry, spicy taste. Coriander still obvious, but not imposing upon all other flavours; as the earthy, root-spice flavour proves. Faint citrus hints, as from diluted, sparkling lemonade. Refreshing, wheat slickness, creamy texture of the head, but empty in the end. Light, typical summerwheat for as large a public as possible.

24.01.2007, 0,33l bottle, Cardinal, Stavanger. The beer is yellow and hazy. The smell and the aroma is dominated by lemon and apple.

A wonderful wheat beer that ranks right up there along side some of the great German and other continental wheat beers such as Hacker Pscorr Weiss beer, Erdinger and the classic Belgian Wheat beer Hoegarden. It has a wonderful texture and crisp fruity citrus flavours as it hits the palate. A truley wonderful beer!

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2008
On tap in Paris. Cloudy pale yellow beer. Great citrus aroma. Kind of dusty on the palate with more citrus, crisp. An odd, but pleasant wit. Good summer beer. My wife took one sip and proclaimed "lemon poppyseed bread". I could imagine the poppyseeds floating in the beer.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2008
Hardly a head on this near-white body. There is an obvious citrus tast, which make it even frescher. I’d say this is a perfect sommer beer. Usually I a not enthusiastic about Kronenbourg, but I’ll make an exception in this case.

bhensonb (11908) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
500 ml. bottle; BB 300808. Pours a light hazy gold color with a respectable white head. Aromas of wheat, lemon and coriander. Starts sweet with citrus peel and mild spice. Could be a small touch of clove. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Really quite decent to drink.

wheresthepath (1687) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2008
[500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s Reading] Slightly cloudy, negligible head. Moderate carbonation. Taste initially citrus - grapefruit, lemon, maybe lime. Develops through maltiness into a strong wheaty flavour - like the smell of a combine harvester with a strong hint of pineapple. Quite sweet - could maybe do with a touch more hops. So far so good, but the texture is a little too weak and watery, whilst there is a slightly unpleasant sourness in the aftertaste.
