I think many people including myself were confused by the listing thus I moved my vote to this one and so should you. The box of the so called retired one is the same thus the confusion.
THE BEST EVER! I love this beer and let me tell you it is liquid gold. Ok take your best bottle of Hoegarrden and mix it with a little bananna and vanilia and vollia the worlds best beer. Complex sweet good as a great meal or a great date. I have waited to years to try this and was not disapointed. Can you tell I like this beer!

I love the typical belgian white ale flavor of this microbrew. It’s smell and flavor are strong and a little sweeter than that of a true belgian like Hoegaarden.

great spicy flavor, not as cloudy as other white or wheat beers, but definitely one of the best i have had

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 One of the first beers I ever had, so it is of course one of my personal favorites. Nice fruity undertones and a pleasant aroma. Make sure to try this stuff if you can get your hands on it.!

A truly great beer. Best in its class for me. So sad to learn of Celis demise in Austin!

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 Ooooh! Wow! Such a beautiful white! Try without the lemon - this is delicious. If you have the chance to drink off-tap, DO IT! You WILL NOT be disappointed! Well-balanced wheat flavorings and smells absolutely wonderful. One of my all-time favorites. Highly drinkable any time, any place, anywhere.
