Tropical fruit bubbles riding wheat waves…Swirling coriander sand…Very good Witbier…

Hmmm... a Belgian wit with American pale hop qualities. Lemon, coriander and a strange astringent citric hop nose. Very intriguing. Hazy straw yellow color with a medium head that I wished was larger. Lightly malty up front fading into a crisp and hoppy finish. Intriguing, as I said before

As Aubrey says, neary the pinnacle of refreshment. Seems to be a cross between and American Wheat and Belgian Wit, but I’m really just learnng these. I liked the combination of spiciness, pepperiness, and Belgian coriander tastes alot.

Foamy-white head that lasts with a beautiful yellow-gold haze. Nearly the epitome of ’crisp and refreshing.’ While it may not exemplify its intended style, in and of itself it’s not bad. Lightly malted and peppery. Hop bitterness seemed to meld well with the tamed herbs/spices. Very clean brew.

This is one of those beers that you like A LOT, or you do not at all. I, for one, love it. It can be used as a converter for those who like Budweiser or even the wine drinkers.

I was having a great time figuring this out -- fruity light-bodied, spicy, coriander -- until I realized they where shooting for a Belgian wheat. It tastes strong, aromatic, and colorful if you expected a typical lager but it’s too wet, pale and light bodied for a good Belgian wheat.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 I see a lot of top notch ratings for this brew but would have to say that while I completely enjoyed it would not put it so high. Orange aroma and flavor are extremely refreshing and appetzing but pretty much ovreshadow any pretence of coriander or 'secret humboldt spices'. Refreshing brew, just not up there with other Belgian Wits.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Not much to it. Hint of spices, but they’re not doing anything. Leave it.

For a White beer, this is very average. It doesn’t have the crispness that I would expect.
In fact, the it tastes a little watery to me. I wouldn’t buy it again.

I like this beer, while perhaps not the best of the style, I find it refreshing and can’t wait to have another.
