Large white head. A light gold, slightly cloudy body. The taste is orange peel zest with some hints of corriander and white bread. Motuhfeel is smooth and silky. Tastes of pears with a spicy nutmeg and clove finish. This also has a slightly dry woody character.

Perfectly balanced hops. Pleasant note of lemon. Not nearly as sweet as other ales of this style. An outstanding offering.

CapFlu (4762) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 (750ml bottle) Pours a lasting, creamy white head and a cloudy Hefe-coloured body. Very sweet and lemony. Flavours of lemon, orange peel and coriander. The finish is dry and mildly tart. This beer should be the style-standard to compare with! I would gladly drink this all night long. Thanks DumDum for the opportunity.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2004
Light flowery notes and citrusy protrusions induce a pleasant bitterness to peacefully rise and remain within restrained levels...Doughy yeast presence is definitely reminiscent of the Unibroue yeast and it too, aptly remains present yet subdued...A wonderfully drinkable while flavorful spring portrait...

Cloudy blonde color with yeast in suspension and a thin white head. Aroma of fruits and spices. Flavor of fruits, spices and yeast, sweet finish. Light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Better than I thought it would be.
