my first taste of wheat beer. Interesting flavor, I usually don’t like a sweet flavor in my beer, but it doesn’t take anything away from the overall flavor of the beer. not the sort of beer I expected to enjoy, but I did.

Does not taste much like a wheat beer. Too smooth and lacking tartness to be considered a Belgian witbier. Not bad for what it is, but it ain’t Belgian.

This beer’s been sitting in the back of my fridge for a while; I’m finally giving it the attention it deserves... White head, light-golden color, slightly hazy. Head seems to fade quickly. Crisp, although not overly effervescent. Has a ’clean’ and ’fresh’ taste. Curiously, it starts smooth and wet, but then finishes a little dry. I only detected a slight bitterness. Coriander and orange peel are far in the back. A little bit of Golden Delicious, maybe. Very delicate hop aroma was enjoyable, but I had to go ’looking for it.’ Good beer, but I yearned for heavier ’Wit’ qualities; maybe more tartness, a little less sweet in the malt, and stronger hop aromatics... but I’m just being picky. It really is a pretty good beer.

One of the clearest wheats I have seen. Nice orange peel, almost lemony taste, with a decent amount of malt. Nice malt aroma. Will have to stock up on this for the summer.

This beer is nothing like the wit beers I have had in Belgium. This was thin, lacking in the proper phenolics for a true Belgian wit beer. They should call it a wheat ale with a little citrus character added.

One of the very best of the wheat beers. The orange peel really comes through. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2007 Golden yellow color, slightly unfiltered, appropriate carbonation and head. Flavor profile is a bit sweet, with the citrus and spice flavors mingling well with the light wheat flavors. Orangey-lemon and coriander finish. I like witbiers, and even though this isn’t too Belgian-tasting, it’s pretty good anyway.
