UPDATED: APR 10, 2004 Nice light Witbier, citrusy nose with orange peels being dominant. A noticable dryness on the finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle, best before 2005. Slightly hazy pale golden-yellow beer with a thin white head and some thin lace. Raisin/plum aroma with some clove and perhaps diacetyl as well. This one was quite unlike any other wit I've ever had before. Candi sugar, orange, clove, coriander, black pepper and other spices. I didn't enjoy this one at all.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m doing something different tonight… I’m drinking my beer right out of the refrigerator… cold as the Artic…. Or not....
Pours a pale golden body and an enormous rocky pillow of white foamy head. The aroma showcases coriander, tangerine, and a soft doughy likeness…It reminds me of spring … like the lemon and orange blossoms that are in bloom in my back yard right now.
Nice! The flavor is soft and citric; the obvious additions of coriander and clove couldn’t stand out any more as they do here, as well as the terrific notes of Mandarin Oranges. Light, soft and bready flavor, a small touch of black pepper also the addition of lemon grass and vanilla.
This is a great Whit, one that has an amazingly soft expression of flavor and a gorgeous appearance…… Good Stuff - Light & Lite; not Overpowering!

This witbier pours with a golden body topped by a very thick lasting white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet slightly bitter and tart with fruity (sour apple) notes. The flavor is slightly sweet yet slightly tart with a sout apple note and a touch of spice. Medium bodied, tingly from the carbonation and slightly warming.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy medium orange, fizzy, rapidly fading head. Aroma of oranges and spice. Flavor was also orange oriented, along with a liberal dose of anise. I dislike anise. Too bad. The beer was also hampered by a strong bite from the carbonation. I like wit beers, and could even see how others may really enjoy this, but it wasn't my bag, baby.

A little more fruity than most of the Wits I'd tasted, both in aroma and flavor. It had a bit more body yet was still refreshing. Liked the all-around complexity.

Was told that this was "unremarkable" ... hmm, might to be the most remarkable beer, but certainly a pleasant surprise in most respects. First being that it was one of two beer gifts over Christmas from my kids. Very nice and well balanced between the fruity sweetness and a tad of sour, bitter and spicy. Nice soft pallet and just generally pleasant beer. Me likey.

This is a good Belgian White. Fruity, sweet, and citrusy. Clean, crisp, and light.
